VENOM - podcast review out now

How do you make a bad guy a good guy? You only eat the heads of other bad guys. Sony Pictures delivers us the start of another universe built around Spider-Man's enemies, just without Spidey himself, and starting it off we have Venom, directed by Ruben Fleischer. After an alien symbiote attaches itself to disgraced reporter Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy), the oily head-muncher Venom takes over Eddie's body and gives him superhuman skills, but the partnership could be over before it's even begun it corrupt billionaire scientist Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) doesn't get his symbiote back. With a wildly shifting tone and inconsistencies, Venom presents us with all the cliches of the superhero genre without any attempt to outdo them. Also starring Michelle Williams and Jenny Slate.
