    Second watch of this masterpiece and you know what, I'm just gonna say it, in my opinion this is the greatest directorial and writing debut ever, and one of the most important films of all time in terms of the impact and legacy it created.

    I haven't come near watching all of Tarantino's filmography, but I already know nothing will top his first two movies, which are genuinely art in movie form. The dialogue, the music, the casting, all sheer…

    This movie is entertaining and definitely leans more into comedy than the 2018 film did, but because of that it loses the charismatic vulnerability that Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock displayed in the original.

    Eddie's too confident here, to the point where he and Venom seem more like roommates rather than a symbiote using Brock for a host. I liked the original and figured a darker sequel could really make it work but it sadly it just goes in the…

Therefore a movie where Tom Hardy goes around…

    I wanted to enjoy this so bad given it's by the great Denis Villeneuve, infact I've just spent the last ten minutes looking through reviews trying to understand what people love about it and I still don't get it.

    It has some cool moments, sure. I love the use of the night vision and the final act really lets Benicio Del Toro shine but as a suspense thriller I was never put on edge or even really excited once throughout…

    I'm well aware I may catch flak for my unpopular opinion but this movie has so many glaring issues, inconsistencies and just general pacing problems that I found it too difficult to fully enjoy. It's important that I make clear that it was the extended blu-ray copy that I viewed so an extra half an hour was added onto the runtime for me, and I'm not completely sure what was added or changed in this version.

    In the UK (I…
