Forums - Movies Discussion - Venom was my second favorite movie of the year, just behind Infinity War Venom, aquaman is second and very close to first

Very sad about it.

So you overall have bad taste in movies... The only way Infinity War could ever win best movie of the year is if it is the only movie that comes out in a single year. Oh my, how fast a medium can slip from art and dig itself into an industry that only carters to the lowest common denominator.

Soon we will reach the point where punching someone in the face will be the backbone of reality shows that run for several seasons, as in "Sorry to bother you" a movie that is, you know, actually good. I am sorry for this short rant but when I see most peoples top 10 I just get depressed...



It was funny sometimes but very predictable and painfully cliche.

With the way critics described it, I expected it to be Fantastic Four(Miles Teller) levels of bad. This was actually a pretty fun movie and really wished this had the possibility to crossover with Tom Holland's Spiderman. Venom is such a fun character.

I guess maybe that is why they had it in San Fran, to keep it away from Spiderman for now. Give them some room until Infinity War is ovrr maybe.

+1

Yeah, the "my favorite 2018 movies"-lists in this thread confused me as well.

I guess that's why some people want Sony to stop making movies. These people only watch the cookie-cutter blockbusters loaded with fan service, CGI galore and cool jokes and Sony suck at making those.

Your trying to argue that 2 billion people have bad taste in movies, including most critics and you a a few others are the ones with good taste?

 

Go on.

3. Isle of Dogs
4. Sorry to Bother You
5. BlacKkKlansmen
6. First Man
7. Incredibles 2
8. Annihilation

Films like Roma, A Star is Born, A Quiet Place, and The Sisters Brothers are on my watchlist.

That's mainstream for ya. The cookie-cutter. The safe. The vanilla.

You mean how Venom was destroyed by critics and even Avangers seems to be loosing the grip over the liberal critical consensus, whom finally start to realize that most of the movies are decent-ish at best, and no positive message saves them from mediocrity? Its not like we did not have through the ages plenty of movies that were praised during release just so they can be re-evaluated at a later, more sane period for what they truly are. BTW, I still wonder how many raving fans still call movies like Titanic and Avatar the bestestest that was ever made. Probably the numbers dwindled quite a bit.

Like it or not, there is a reason why we have standards to judge a movie quality wise, and thank god, box-office results are not one of them. But maybe Huxley was right all along, and we did reach that point where people don't even care anymore and a simple VFX heavy masturbation is more than enough for most
