Tomb Raider

http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/03...iption-revealed

Not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, she looks the part. On the other hand...

"Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class."

That is not Lara Croft. She's not Peter Parker. She is way more capable (and rich) than that. Making her retarded/irresponsible to appeal to the masses is not the right way to tackle her character.

So looks like the first Angelina Jolie film may remain the best one (which was at least dumb fun), sadly.

Based on what? A single sentence in a film summary? Talk about overreacting.

Not really. That sentence made it clear how they're gonna handle her character.

I've played the games, yes. Like I said, it's a single aspect of the character.

i take it you're a Star Wars fan.

sooooooo, if the next movie were about Darth Vader, a flamboyant homosexual man from the Upper East Side of Manhattan who's struggling to get his artisanal sandwich shop off the ground... you wouldn't have a problem with that?


this proposed "Tomb Raider" movie sounds like shit. why even call it 'Tomb Raider'

I can somewhat agree.
Why bother tacking the name on, when the film could just as well be a different property?
I felt the same about the lste 90s Godzilla. Decent movie in itself, but, didnt have to be called Godzilla.
10 Clovetfield lane (unless its part of some bigger anthology or project i'm unaware of), same thing.

Ah well.

but, but... being the leader of a galactic empire is just a single aspect of Vader's character.

Agreed

especially when you read the rest of the plot they're going for

quote:
Eventually she becomes inspired to investigate her fatherís disappearance and travels to his last-known location: a tomb on an island somewhere off the coast of Japan.

Gawd...KMC sucks with the edit button sometimes

not sure why her Father is involved with the plot, Nothing about the first game in the new reboot games.

I guess its not a surprise with Game to movie adaptations, Normally add something that wasn't in the games at all.
