I definitely agree. The idea of a young, skinny Eddie Brock, competing with Peter Parker, seduced by the power of the alien symbiote to right all the wrongs he perceives was done to him beats middle aged hulking body building Eddie Brock, who never met Parker, and wants revenge because he wrote a bogus story.
If Kurtwood Smith had been in the crowd scene and urged Spidey to put a boot up Venom's @$$, this would have been the greatest movie of all time.
Man, I wish I'd thought of that line...
But in criticizing the alteration of the origin and its impact on Peter's life, no one has brought up the fact that in the comics, Peter got closure as well, in Amazing 200.
Spidey also said in that issue that he would never again consider giving up his costumed identity. I think he was giddy over finding out that Aunt May wasn't really dead - but reality soon set it again. I think he'll always be tortured by Ben's death and his perceived guilt.

Everytime he speaks in the movies it takes me out of the story and his waiting until Harry is almost killed twice in an ignorant quest for revenge before telling him his father wasn't killed by Spider-man was just ridiculous.
Mr. Paxton and his thespian talents are definitely mentioned in Part 2.

Egad, I did not need to know that.
