Does 'Venom' Live Up to the Hate or the Hype?

Comic book fans have been waiting for a Venom movie for years, and now Venom is finally here. The box office numbers are massive, but reviews have been subpar to say the least and social media hasn’t been any nicer. Was it a mess, a masterpiece, or somewhere in the middle?

As the dust settles a tad, our resident Fast and Furious/James Bond expert Holc joins us to dissect Ruben Fleischer’s version of the famed Spider-Man villain. We talk Tom Hardy’s twitchy performance, Riz Ahmed somehow salvaging a worthless character, and the already-beginning build to Venom 2.
