Venom: Let There Be Carnage | Average Guy Movie Review

After a year of living together, the relationship between Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and Venom (also Tom Hardy) is strained. While Venom wants to get out there and munch on bad guys, Eddie is trying to keep a low profile as he tries to get his life back together. But when the pair visit Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson), Venom accidentally shares a piece of himself with the death row inmate, resulting in the emergence of a new symbiote - Carnage. This allows Kasady to escape his execution and bring chaos to San Francisco. And the only one(s) who can stop him, aren't getting along right now. Sony's superpowered antihero odd couple are back, and with the both of them stuck in Eddie Brock's body, things are getting tense. Imagine what it would be like sharing your body with a toddler on a sugar rush, that's Eddie's life with Venom.  How do you enforce rules on a being that's a) more powerful than you, and b) can control your body? The answer being; with great difficulty

Venom | Average Guy Movie Review

When investigative journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) starts looking into the Life Foundation and its head, Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), he makes a shocking discovery. Drake's astronauts have discovered alien life, which they're bringing back to Earth. Through his investigation, Brock is accidentally exposed to one of the life forms. This "symbiote" as it's known bonds with him, granting him incredible powers and abilities. The question is, what will he do with those powers? In the build-up to it's release, Venom has received a lot of negativity, it has been described as "unexciting" and "aggressively loud and stupid" by critics. When I read this I have to ask; what movie were they watching? Venom is a simple yet fun comic book movie/origin story/buddy comedy. Thanks to some great special effects, all of the symbiotes look great, especially when interacting with their hosts. The action is very exciting, although it does take a wh

Dunkirk | Average Guy Movie Review

The story of Operation Dynamo - the evacuation of 338,000 British and French troops from France - is brought vividly to life in Christopher Nolan's 'Dunkirk'. Told from the point of view of the men on the beach (1 week), the crew of one of the civilian boats that aided in the evacuation (1 day) and the pilots of the RAF trying to protect them from the Luftwaffe (1 hour), 'Dunkirk' is an intense experience from beginning to end. And the tension only increases as the storylines begin to intersect. What's most impressive about 'Dunkirk' is the intensity. Nolan switches it on as soon as the movie starts and despite a few brief moments of calm, keeps the pressure on the entire time. He wanted the audience to experience the pressure that all those involved in the operation, were under. 'Terrifying' is a word that springs to mind! Simple things like the ticking clock woven into the soundtrack (a recording of one of Nolan's pocket watche

Sony's reboot of their Marvel universe took a step in the right direction this week. Tom Hardy has been cast as Eddie Brock in the upcoming Venom movie. It was confirmed yesterday when Sony tweeted a picture of Hardy wearing a Venom t-shirt. The actor, known for The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road and Inception is said to be a big fan of the character. The movie is set for an October 5th 2018 release and will be directed by Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer.

In return, the host is granted a range of incredible powers. After Peter Parker was able to separate himself from the symbiote, it moved to Eddie Brock and together they became Venom. Both Brock and

What if Daniel Craig is done with 007?

After ten years and four movies Daniel Craig is apparently done with 007. What will this mean for the franchise? Are we going to get another reboot or will the next actor pick up where Craig left off? I never thought I'd say this because I have been a fan of Bond for as long as I can remember, but if Craig doesn't return I think they should put the super spy to bed, at least for a few years. If you haven't seen Spectre there are spoilers ahead. Spectre was a disappointment, I hate to say it but it was. Skyfall would have made a much better exit for Craig but that's the wonder of 20-20 hindsight. That's not to say Spectre didn't have a lot going for it; great cast, Director and crew, even the new look Blofeld was a good idea, Christolph Waltz was excellent. The idea that Blofeld was behind everyone responsible for everything in all four Daniel Craig movies was a bit of a stretch, that and his Daddy issues. It worked with Quantum because
