Venom: Let There be Carnage

‘Venom: Let There be Carnage’ is the sequel to the 2018 Marvel superhero movie ‘Venom’. This one brings back Tom Hardy (Lawless), and Michelle Williams (Dawson’s Creek). While adding Woody Harrelson (Zombieland), Naomie Harris (28 Days Later…), and Stephen Graham (This is England).

Cletus Kasady (Harrleson) is a notorious serial killer who wants to give Eddie Brock an exclusive interview before he is put to death. Eddie and Venom accidentally infect Cletus with a symbiote named Carnage. Now Eddie and Venom must stop Carnage, all while they are feuding amongst themselves.

There’s not many sequels to originals that I like better, but this is one. The first one I thought was a little bit of a let down for a movie about Venom. This one is the bigger, badder movie that we deserve. This one focuses more on venom himself, he even separates himself from Eddie for part of the film and we get just Venom. This one also ups more action and bigger final fight scene. In the first movie, the “boss” fight is a little underwhelming and is maybe a couple minutes long. This one is a solid ten minutes long of two symbiote’s battling it out, pretty awesome. It still brings the funniness of Venom, while adding Harrelson’s comedy. I highly recommend this one. I give it a 10/10.

Zombieland: Double Tap

It’s been a full ten years since ‘Zombieland’ came out. It’s one of my all time favorites, the opening scene with Jesse Eisenberg being chased around a car by a zombie while going over his rules to survival is a classic opening scene. So I was a little hesitant to see ‘Double Tap’, only because normally a sequel never lives up to the hype especially if the first one is really good. ‘Double Tap’ brings back the original cast along with some other stars including Zoey Deutch, Avan Jogia, Rosario Dawson, Luke Wilson, and Thomas Middleditch.

I was pleasantly surprised with ‘Double Tap.’ It wasn’t as funny as I hoped, but it’s still a great film. Filled with plenty of action, even a few heart warming, and touching moments. I still stand by my theory if Woody Harrelson is in it, it’s worth watching. So rest easy ‘ Zombieland’ fans, this was the sequel we needed.
