Man has it been a minute since I've last seen this.
My main gripe would be with the main bad guy, he just didn't come off as dangerous or like a threat to the group of heroes.
James Woods worked fairly well in this, which is good because I wasn't sure if his and Carpenter's style would mesh.
Not often you see this Baldwin (Daniel) in things.
Forgot that Sheryl Lee was in this, worth the watch for that alone.

Sorry to the myriad of haters, but I thought WW84 was fucking great. It retains the best elements of Wonder Woman, in particular Gal Gadot, her chemistry with a returning Chris Pine and the balancing of high emotion with more comedic aspects (Steve exploring 1980s Washington is a nice role-reversal from the dynamic of the first film). At the same time, it improves on a lot of the weaker stuff: the CGI is a lot stronger…

Not as bad as all the reviews suggest. But the beginning was just ridiculous with Diana as a child in a…

Beautiful lips... a knife draws near
The curse of an undead beauty who has risen,

Arguably, my new all-time favourite vampire movie, even if it's not really a vampire movie. Actually it's a kaijin (mysterious person/evil person with supernatural attributes) movie, but they described that entity as a "vampire" (probably more for marketing reasons, the japanese original title, which roughly translates as "Fear of the Haunted House:…

Kurosawa makes a film that settles between ambiguity, seemingly unresolved issues, subtle characterizations between the characters and an invasive atmosphere. At the beginning of the plot, he creates a typical serial killer movie from the 90s, about to explode in deaths, police suspense and chases, but which progresses alarmingly like a poem with dark tones. Therefore, the director ends up creating a certain trap for the spectator, who spends the film…
"Fuck this guy!"
Venom, finally following his ID.
Is it just me or is this like the movie Ted, but instead of Mark Wahlberg and a wisecracking teddy bear, it's Tom Hardy and a wisecracking symbiote.
Just like the first, the best thing about this is Tom Hardy as Eddy and Tom Hardy as Venom, a slightly mellower version of their previous joint appearance.
Woody Harrelson as Carnage is one of the worst performances I've seen from him. The wig…
Not a good movie but but a lot of dumb fun. Very cheesy in a mostly charming way. Like the first movie it feels like something that would've been released in the 2000s.
The clear highlight, like the first movie, is the relationship between Eddy and Venom. Their banter is hilarious and Venom is kind of adorable. Venom himself is just so likable that it kind of carries this movie.
Carnage was kind of a letdown. He looked cool and…
