I wanted Venom to get good reviews. I wanted to see it tonight with my little guy who loves these dark, evilish heroes and villains. But, bad reviews and being compared to Halle Berry’s Catwoman (what) keeps me from dropping the price of the tickets. Do bad reviews keep you from seeing an otherwise anticipated movie? I have a loose rule saying that if a movie gets lower than 75% on Rotten Tomatoes, I wait for the home release or even until it lands on Netflix. With Venom currently sitting at 30%, the trailers not looking too great, Tom Hardy himself criticizing his own movie, and Sony having a pretty terrible track record when it comes to superhero movies, I just can’t see myself watching it on the big screen. Have you seen it yet? What did you think, especially compared to the MCU’s films?
Plus, and I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this, I’m a huge Toronto Raptors fan and they’re playing Melbourne tonight in pre-season so I guess I’ll watch that!
Oh, and I mentioned the XCOM2 expansion last update and how I’ve been waiting on a sale. It’s on sale now on Newegg (link) and you can use the code: EMCEPPU46 (not my affiliate code or anything, just saw it on Reddit :D Looks like you have to subscribe to their newsletters). I think I might grab it finally!
Enjoy Scene 38 – “Kids These Days”!
