Date Night: Ladies Choice
Gollum directs Mickey Knox and Bronson going at it (that makes the imagination run wild). I mistook Stephen Graham for Donnie Wahlberg. My brain was misfiring. Could've been the bucket of sodium saturated nacho cheese powdered popcorn and gallon of wild Cherry Pepsi I put down before the film officially got going.
I do root for Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson in whatever they're in. This was a rougher cheer session. Hardy is playing the long game with this Marvel character. He sees something he likes. Or he made a choice and he's sticking to it. He'll probably never get the credit he deserves for voicing the symbiote so wonderfully. The comic timing and chemistry he has with himself is undeniable. Think Nicolas Cage in Adaptation.
It's the Odd Couple written by a 13 year old who eats nothing but cocaine and cereal. This is shallow and the story is by the numbers but when the mid credit sequence came around it was worth it to know that Hardy will be heading to greener pastures. He deserves it. I wish the man all the best.
"Fuck this guy!"
