Venom Felt Like a DC Movie, In a Good Way, with More Violence & Less Jokes (Review)

Venom Felt Like a DC Movie, In a Good Way, with More Violence & Less Jokes (Review)

Venom has been on my radar for a while.  I’ve never read the comics but the trailer got me in one view.  Plus I love Tom Hardy. And since I’ve already bought in, it’s been hard to avoid the hype on this one, especially how badly it’s been treated in other reviews.  Why all the negativity, guys? Well I had to go see for myself and make up my own mind. Read more

Venom is as Lazy & Unforgettable as Comic Book Movies Get (Review)

Venom is as Lazy & Unforgettable as Comic Book Movies Get (Review)

Sony did the right thing by letting Marvel Studios help shape a new Spider-Man and allow it to breathe in its Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Sony is still hush-hush on whether Venom will exist in the same universe as Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, it’s evident about half way into the movie that Sony should have let Marvel Studios help shape the alien symbiote and its host. If people thought the 2007 iteration of the Venom character seen in Spider-Man 3 was bad, then just wait until they get a load of this one. Not even A-list star Tom Hardy, playing the host of a liquid-like form, is enough to save this new version of the character. Lazy, tone deaf, and laughable on just about every front, Venom isn’t a bad movie because it’s so bad it’s good, or that it feels like a movie from the early 2000’s, or that it’s rated PG-13 instead of R. It’s a bad movie because it’s just bad in every way, shape, and form.
