    Dunno guys. Looks way too shlocky for me. The huge villain laboratory built into the hills of San Francisco, the gadgets that are following him on the motor cycle, the vials of symbiote with a little window so you can see it moving... I was hoping for a true standalone film and it will be really interesting if they are trying to subtly link this to the MCU. But I can see Sony's fingers all over this. Drop it into Raimi's Spider-man movies and you wouldn't see a difference.

    Do we know if it's truly rated R yet?

    The fact that they couldn't even bother finding their own trailer music (aren't they using that music in the Infinity War promos right now?) is perfect microcosm of how generic and derivative this whole thing looks.

    Looks and sounds bad (“The guy you work for is an evil person” or whatever that crap was) and Hardy looks stiff and uncomfortable.

    Ahhhh, ya bunch of haters. Looks great. I've always thought of Eddie Brock as stiff and uncomfortable in the comics. He doesnt fit well in society. Joining with the symbiote only let him be who he really is. I have hope for this.

    This is the opposite of how I read him. He was a cocky jock type overachiever. He was my 2nd favorite character in the 90s.

    I agree and dont think the two descriptions are mutually exclusive. I think hes both.

    I'm going to knock back a couple beers, a couple martinis, and hopefully enjoy the shit out of this one.
    So you found God, huh? That's awesome. See, Mom kept calling out for him but he wasn't around. I guess Jesus was down at the mill forgiving all the drunks. Who knew?

    The first reaction tweets don't make it sound exactly good, but suddenly I'm more interested. At least Hardy will be *something* to see...

    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    From the RT score and every reputable review I’ve read.

    Read other reviews then. It sounds like a generic waste of time.

    I’ll rent the inevitable unrated cut.

    I’m guessing the drop by next weekend will be monumental.
