Films we’ve watched so you know what to watch on a plane GTSC podcast 10/4/21

Kevin Gootee watched:

Dark Passage (1947)

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall respectively play an escaped convict wrongly accused of murder and hides out in a mysterious woman’s house while he recuperates from plastic surgery. It’s a typical film noir from the 40’s and again, it must have been better to see this then as opposed to the tons of other similar films I’ve seen since. It’s..fine.

5.5/10

Kevin Israel watched:

Venom: Let There be Carnage (2021)

  • Eddie Brock is still struggling to coexist with the shape-shifting extraterrestrial Venom. When deranged serial killer Cletus Kasady also becomes host to an alien symbiote, Brock and Venom must put aside their differences to stop his reign of terror.
  • Coming in at a tight 90 minutes, there was no fat on this bone. The movie leaned heavily into the comedic relationship between Eddie and Venom, and that played well. There were a few good laughs. Woody Harrilson played a great psycho, but relying on ANOTHER symbiote bad guy felt like a retread. Is there no one else for Venom to battle? There were some plot holes and the overall story felt a little tired, but it was better than I expected. Let There be Carnage was OK, not great…but enjoyable enough. Definitely looking forward to the MCU tie in teased at the end. 5.5/10
