The Tops of February…

We took a look back on February. What is hot and what is not? Do you want to know what was the most popular/borrowed items? There are a lot of hot newbies here and an old favourite. Some needed extra copies purchased to keep up with the demand, some just don't sit on the shelf for long.

The movie was so good! I wonder if there is going to be a second one. At first I wasn't so sure I would like it, but it turned out to be AMAZING!

Good and different. Not great but it had moments of greatness and amusement. It's not all dark and nasty. Probably a one-movie deal but definitely worth a look.

I love this movie action from beginning to end.

In my opinion, anything with Tom Hardy in it is excellent, he played that character with excellence and the "voice" of "Venom", with his lines in the movie just made it that much better. I also find the owner of the neighborhood grocery store in the movie, is a excellent actress and the scenes in the store, overall, were excellent.

The "Venom" creature, overall, WOW! Love it!

Action, Drama, Comedy, Love story, etc. this movie had it all.

Not the finest superhero film I've seen - I guess I was expecting an against-the-type superhero more like Deadpool, which I really enjoyed, so this was definitely a let-down. Despite this, still waaaay better than Aquaman!

Great movie-suspenseful and at times hilarious.

Very clever movie. I loved the way Venom was introduced and portrayed. Hardy did a wonderful job as always. I expected this movie to be intense and serious, which it was. However, it also has its moments of witty humour and fun. Definitely a movie I will watch again.

Venom is a film from 2018 that is based on the well-known character from the Spiderman Universe. The film features Tom Hardy, who plays the role of Eddie Brock. Brock is a man who tries to shed light on human testing with symbiotes, which causes him to lose his job. Eventually, a symbiote attaches itself to Brock, thus forming into Venom. The film has some great special effects, gruesome action scenes, and a fast-paced plot that keep the audience engaged. Moreover, Hardy does well in making Brock relatable to the audience. However, the characters are portrayed as a binary good or bad. There could have been more character development to show the circumstances of the characters in a better manner. In addition, the movie becomes quite predictable as it progresses. All in all, if you want to see a movie purely for the action, you may find this worth a watch. I give the film a rating of 3 stars. @Riveting_Reviews of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Despite the lack of Spider-Man, this antihero flick did the best with what it had to make a reasonably entertaining movie. More or less everything in this package is solid. The theme song by Eminem is the best part of the whole thing, honestly.

"We will eat both of your arms,
and then both of your legs,
and then we will eat your face
right off your head,
You will be this armless, legless,
faceless thing, won't you?
Rolling down the street. . .
like a turd. . .in the wind."

34 good quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors. However, these two standouts are not posted yet:

You are a loser, Eddie.
===
On my planet, I am kind of a loser, like you. But here, we could be more.

And nice original song:
...
I'm the supervillain
Dad and Mom was Iosin' their marbles to.
You marvel that?
Eddie Brock is you and I'm the suit,
so call me Venom.
