The Neil Armstrong film “First Man” has landed in third place at the North American box office, behind last weekend’s champs “Venom” and “A Star Is Born.”

But in Venom, that famous Spiderman villain appearing in a movie with no Spiderman, someone at some point needs to step up and explain their motivation and why they are doing what they are doing. The villain (Riz Ahmed) does his villain stuff, because well, he’s the bad guy. The antihero Eddie Brock, a game Tom Hardy, also offers no real reason for […]
