Watched Venom (2018) from
Investigative journalist Eddie Brock attempts a comeback following a scandal, but accidentally becomes the host of Venom, a violent, super powerful alien symbiote. Soon, he must rely on his newfound powers to protect the world from a shadowy organization looking for a symbiote of their own.

My expectations for this movie were rock bottom. But this movie knows exactly what it is and goes for it.

It’s based on a comic about a dude that bonds with an alien, symbiotic lifeform. Others have tried to “elevate” this type of source material and failed.

This doesn’t try to be anything more than it is (total nonsense) and on that basis it fully succeeds.

I’ve not seen Michelle Williams in anything since Brokeback Mountain. She’s great.
