    Can we make sure Tom Holland is locked into Spider Man for the next several years?

    Hemsworth is great, if I was Bobby De Niro I'd be telling him, "You have a gift, my friend".

    To think, he was on the verge of giving up 10 years ago.

    I'm convinced of what "the spoiler" is and it's the reason this is the last film in this story arc.

    He only got a few minutes onscreen, but I thought he nailed George Kirk in the Star Trek reboot.

    It made about 100 mil overall against a budget of 38 so it was a success. The fact that a movie about a subject matter that really only should appeal to Europeans made 26 mil in the US is pretty amazing.

    I'm still debating whether I'll be watching S3 at all. Season 1 was a bit too trippy for me in the first place, even though there was at least still enough to like, but then S2 pretty much doubled-down on the trippiness to the point where there was very little left for me to like. It finally hit that tipping point of turning painful to watch. So, with S3, I don't know. Part of me wants to finish this thing out since I started it and there is only one left, part of me just doesn't. For now, I'll put it on the back-burner and see how well I'm keeping up with everything else. Right now, I'm falling pretty far behind, especially since I've been burning through the whole latest round of Arrowverse shows on Netflix (1/3 of way through). Here is my to-do list after that:

    -Cloak and Dagger (Season 2)
    -Star Trek Discovery (Season 2)
    -Jessica Jones (Season 3)
    -Black Lightning (Season 2)
    -Legion (Season 3)
    -Teen Titans (Season 1)
    -Doom Patrol (Season 1)
    -Swamp Things (Season 1) - soon
    -Stranger Things (Season 3) - soon
    -Agents of Shield (Season 6) - soon
    -Walking Dead (Season 9) - soon

    That is an awful lot to catch up on.

    Finally watched Venom.
    I'm not going to lie, I thought it was great. I really hope Venom becomes part of the MCU.

    It has definitely turned into a guilty pleasure of mine. I still fully recognize it really isn't a good movie at its core, but its fun enough that I've learned to just turn my brain off on a lot of that stuff. Definitely one I've changed my tune on a decent amount.

    Whats the definition of a good movie? I think it checks the important boxes.

    And the interaction between Eddie and Venom is hilarious.

    That’s fair, I’ll let you know how it goes. It was trippy but far less of the annoying trippy of previous seasons and easier to follow in this episode but I know what you mean.

    Some of the biggest flaws would be stuff like monstrous plot holes, a terrible one-note cheesy villain, and completely wasting Michelle Williams in her role. If it came out in the 90s or early 200s and was compared there, it would probably be about on par. However, when compared to movies like Endgame, Civil War or even movies like Shazam, it can't help but feel like we are stepping back in time and quality. These are just my thoughts. Everyone is free to like what they like and like I said, I've grown to enjoy this movie myself for what it is. And yes, the interaction between Venom and Eddie is probably the most endearing part of the movie and why I'm growing to like the movie. I even like it enough to look forward to the next.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure all they've got to clear is a 3-month window minimum from original theater release date. Back in the day, it was wwwaaaayyyy more. Sometimes I think it would be a whole year before we could see stuff on home video.
