Movie review: Venom

This movie wasn't good.  Marvel has been making hit movies for the past 12 years, and this was like...what if Marvel suddenly reverted back in time 20 years?  This was the type of superhero movie you would expect to see in the late 90's.  Remember those movies?  You'd go to the theater to see X-Men, and there'd be this line where Wolverine asks why they all have to wear black leather uniforms, and Cyclops would respond: "What would you prefer, yellow spandex?"  And the whole audience would go "Ooooh."  And you'd sit there thinking, "Why AREN'T they wearing yellow spandex?"  And the line would get under your skin to the point where you'd just want to corner Joss Whedon in a room and demand he tell you exactly who wrote that line or else you would kidnap his entire family. 

I was actually disappointed to see Stan Lee cameo in the movie, and I checked to see when the movie was released, because I didn't want this to be the last-ever Stan Lee cameo.
