    The most notable thing is that they actually went back and fixed the pronunciation of “symbiote” from how they were saying it in the original trailer. Otherwise, hoo boy, this was retarded.

    That said, this is a movie I can totally understand if anyone finds enjoyment out of it. Hell, if I had seen it maybe about 10 years ago, there's a good possibility I would've liked this a hell of a lot more than I presently do.

    But hey, I got a free comic book for seeing it at AMC, so it wasn't a complete bust.

    $60 is impressive for a 2nd tier spider-man villain spin off.

    I thought the Eminem song was bad, too.

    Somebody tried to hand me a free comic on the way out and I said no.

    What a movie.

    I didn't get a comic afterwards because I saw it at an advance screening.

    At least I didn't spend money on it.

    The script mostly sucks. The CGI mostly sucks. The cinematography is off, like the DP needs to lower his camera's ISO since everything seems a notch too bright. The editing is haphazard. The last half-hour is a computer generated ejaculation.

    However, I was entertained? Tom Hardy in particular is doing some bizarre, awesome stuff here. He seems to be on a wavelength with early Johnny Depp or Crispin Glover, in the sense that he is hell-bent on working out sort of a batshit Stanislavski schizo performance inside expensive B-movie level material. Weirdly, he reminds me of 80s era Bobcat Goldthwait. Meanwhile, Venom's voice sounds like Destro from the GI Joe cartoon. My 8-year-old self would have loved this.
    Ratings on a 1-10 scale for your pleasure:

    Venom - 6
    Sixteen Candles - 7
    A Simple Favor - 7
    The Predator - 5
    The Godfather - 10
    Touch of Evil - 8
    BlacKkKlansman - 6
    Eighth Grade - 8
    Blindspotting - 7
