They blended two different Brock/Venom comic lines. I dont like the one that partook of the most :(

how do people watch heaping piles of celluloid excrement like this.


Wait, I don't think they use celluloid anymore.

I thought it was pretty good. I've never read the comics. Saw it at the IMAX. The sound effects were awesome.

Bingo, you hit my main beef with Spiderman 3. Spiderman is not suppose to be simple, he is complex. That complexity and his human struggles is what drove the comics, not his "spider-abilities". Spiderman 1 and 2 dealt with that really well but SM3 was just a jumble and nothing really was developed. And how they portrayed Venom makes me want to cry :(

Here is a synopsis of the two Venom story lines

Follow along: In Jim Shooter’s MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS miniseries, Peter Parker returned home from outer space with a stylish new black costume, a freaky garment that not only could change its appearance to look like anything, it also obeyed Peter Parker’s telepathic commands, lengthening or shortening the sleeves, pulling back the mask, whatever he wanted. As the days turned to months, Peter continued to wear his new costume as Spider-Man, and found himself growing more and more fatigued by the day, never suspecting that it was because his costume was actually a living alien creature, which was taking his body out for test runs at night as Spider-Man while he slept. Growing concerned by his constant lack of energy and overwhelming fatigue, Spidey went to see his local M.D. – Reed Richards. Hey, who else can you go see if you’re Spider-Man? Besides, there’s gotta be some benefits to knowing the smartest man on the planet.

After a few tests, Reed puts it all together, that the costume was really an alien symbiote organism, and was preparing to bond with Peter Parker. Understanding what was happening and alarmed, the creature immediately tried to bond with Spidey, but was blasted off Spider-Man’s bod, thanks to a quick-thinking Mr. Fantastic and his hand sonic blaster (sonics apparently being the creature’s only weakness). The symbiote was held captive in the Baxter Building for study, until it was freed by a mysterious robotic drone that had invaded the FF’s headquarters. The symbiote headed right back for Parker again, and nearly succeeded in bonding permanently with him – had Spidey not taken refuge beneath the cacophonous gongs of a cathedral bell, which drove the creature from his body, and, so Spidey believed, killed him. Or so he thought.

Meanwhile, over in the pages of SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, Spidey had been pursuing a serial killer calling himself the Sin-Eater, who had killed Spidey’s best friend on the NYPD, Sgt. Jean DeWolff. (A brief digression, if I may: as well done as Peter David’s “The Death of Jean DeWolff” storyline in SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN was – and it was quite good – I’ve always felt it to have been a real waste of one of the SPIDER-MAN supporting characters with the most appeal and most unrealized potential. Even in her first appearance in MARVEL TEAM-UP, Jean DeWolff had a spark and a great “tough-chick” appeal that really clicked well with Spider-Man, and as the character was utilized over the years, with her grudging respect for Spidey developing into a hidden affection, I really felt that there was so much more to be done with the character that would have had long-term dividends for the series, as opposed to the short-term shock value of her taking a shotgun blast to the chest. )

Anyway, in the course of Spidey’s pursuit of the Sin-Eater, a copycat killer showed up to claim credit for the crimes, whose name and story were plastered all over the Bugle’s competitor the Daily Globe by reporter Eddie Brock. When it was later discovered that the stories were bogus, the Globe was a laughingstock, and Brock’s reputation was ruined, reduced to a journalistic pariah who could only get paprazzi-type assignments. Despondent, Brock went to a church with plans to kill himself, where the still-surviving symbiote sensed his despair, his need, and his hatred of Spider-Man (an emption the symbiote shared, due to Spidey’s rejection of it), and permanently bonded with Brock, creating the new creature calling itself Venom.

After a secret campaign of stalking and intimidation, Venom declared all-out war on Spider-Man, terrorizing him both as Spidey and as Peter Parker, since, thanks to the symbiote’s memories, Venom knew Spidey’s secret identity (a narrative tool that still had some power and effectiveness back then, as opposed to now when it seems everybody and his brother knows Peter Parker is Spider-Man, and all Spidey has to do is sneeze for his mask to come flying off…). The design for Venom was simple, but startlingly effective, retaining the already sharp look of the black Spider-Man costume, but transposing it onto a huge, overly muscled body, and adding a wide, sinister, sharp-toothed grin and a disturbingly long tongue.

Along with all of Spider-Man’s abilities, Venom can camouflage himself and alter his appearance thanks to the symbiote’s shapechanging powers, and does not register on Spidey’s spider-sense, making him one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous enemies. After several years’ worth of heated battles with Spider-Man, Venom’s popularity grew so great that Marvel wound up shifting his motivation slightly into “protecting the innocent,” at least as his twisted mind perceived it, and Marvel began using the character as an anti-hero vigilante (all the rage in the “grim-and-gritty” comics era of the ‘90s), and for a time, sales were pretty strong.

what brock really looks like not some little punk like they used in the movie

I thought Spiderman 3 was slow. I didn't think it did justice to the first two or the comic. It didn't help I was in a packed out theater with my knees against the chair infront of me. Oh well... I am kind of hoping they don't make another but they left it open as always.
