I’ll admit. I had zero interest when Venom came out in theaters. It looked ridiculous. Plus, how can there be an Eddie Brock without a Peter Parker out-photographing him? Or a Venom without a symbiote that is hellbent on revenge against Spider-Man for being rejected?
I eventually gave in and watched the movie and I was more than pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it a lot. Tom Hardy made a very interesting and weird Eddie Brock, and his Venom felt like a teenage oddball. It was fun.
