Venom may be being torn apart by critics, but that doesn't mean audiences won't be turning out to see Tom Hardy taken over by an alien symbiote. Venom journalist Eddie Brock (Hardy) attempts to expose a nefarious industrialist, but winds up joined with the alien symbiote that both empowers and changes him. The film tackles the Spider-Man villain from the comics, but gives him a standalone film as an anti-hero with no involvement from the web-slinging hero. The film included two post-credits scene, so whether you need more explanation or just fancy some spoilers then we've got your back. *Warning spoiler alert* Who is Cletus Kasady? In a mid-credits scene, Brock is preparing for his next big story: an interview with serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson). In the comics, Kasady was a cellmate of Brock, who once the Venom symbiote had bonded with Brock, the offspring of the Venom symbiote bonded with Kasady, fusing them in a similar fashion and creating the the super-villain known … [Read more...] about Venom end credit scene explained: How the scenes set up a sequel
Iran did a deal. Iraq got bombed back to the Stone Age. North Korea was invited to tea. Into the void where the Axis of Evil once terrified the world, a new existential threat to civilisation has been born. And it has a spire 123 metres tall. Unbeknown to the 500,000 tourists who visit it each year, it seems that Salisbury Cathedral is built on an inter-dimensional whirlpool which sucks evil down towards hell like sand in an hour-glass. The presence of these unwitting pilgrims, walking widdershins around the cloisters, merely speeds up the spiritual centrifuge. Hence the bemusement of Russian spies who, on an entirely-heterosexual visit under false names to the East End of London, found themselves dragged towards the bewitching building. They broke free of its unearthly tractor beam only when they dropped a bottle of perfume that Ruslan had bought as a gift for his mother, and was unfortunately past its sell-by date. Caught in the Salisbury swirl, the liquid mutated into a … [Read more...] about Is Salisbury Cathedral part of a new Axis of Evil?
THIS coming weekend could be one of the most pivotal in the remainder of the Premier League season. There's a packed schedule of action ahead, with the potential title showdown between Liverpool and Man City on Sunday - while Manchester United welcome Brighton. Man Utd vs Brighton - Sunday, 2pm JUST when you think they've turned the corner, Ole's men are back at square one. A terrific 2-1 Carabao Cup win at Chelsea looked to have finally stuttered Man Utd's season into life on a cold, dank evening in West London. But fast forward four days to Bournemouth and the Red Devils were lifeless in a 1-0 surrender to Eddie Howe's hard-working Cherries. We got fully behind Bournemouth in last week's preview and reckoned that United would do well to come back from the South Coast with a point.They couldn't even do that. It's a really ugly situation now at Old Trafford and it says a lot that they come into this November game two points BEHIND Brighton in the league table. That's definitely not a … [Read more...] about Football betting tips TODAY: Liverpool’s Mane to dive in City victory and Rashford to score for Man Utd
I wish I had a buck for everyone who’s ever asked me who sings political songs these days. With the reformation of Midnight Oil and, especially, the rise of Donald Trump, it’s a refrain that’s only gotten louder. Where oh where, these people moan, are the musicians addressing the temper of the times? The complainers are, of course, invariably white and stopped listening to new music in approximately 1988. In fact, we are seeing exactly the kind of revival of protest music that the era should demand. Much of it is happening in hip-hop, and Kendrick Lamar is the current standard-bearer, but he’s hardly alone. In Australia, AB Original – the logical, local hip-hop extension of revered Indigenous folk singer Kev Carmody – deservedly won last year’s Australian Music Prize. And while these are lean times for guitar-based rock music, you can find it in that shrinking genre too: in recent releases by the Peep Tempel, the Drones and looking back a bit … [Read more...] about Bad//Dreems: Gutful review – cementing the long awaited revival of brash protest rock
