    I think this is a job for ... Lara Croft.

    supposedly a reboot is in the works based on the most recent game. hopefully it turns out better than its predecessors.

    Do you mean the Lara Croft movies?

    I hope so. Angelina Jolie sure looked and acted the part, but the movies themselves were terrible. Meanwhile, the reboot / pre-game with her as a teenager was just a very tremendous game, very high game reviews.

    You found some acting?

    Which frame?

    yeah, lara croft in the jolie movies was a bit too over-sexualized and focused on fashion to be taken seriously as a famed adventurer/archaeologist.



    of course, that was partly because she was over-sexualized in the original games. there's a lot of potential to make a respectable franchise out of the reboot if they lay off the cheesy, unrealistic stunts. that's what annoyed the most about the indiana jones series; not the supernatural elements, but the absurdly cartoonish action sequences.

    When Spinosaurus killed T-rex.

    I think that's when things got a little interesting.

    Looks like the review embargo has finally lifted and now commentaries are pouring onto the Internet in last-minute prep for this week's release. And the world collectively says... meh.

    EDIT: Hmmm, the RT rank edged up to 71%. Pretty much "Go, enjoy, don't expect too much, good for what it is."

    Finally saw this today (IMAX 3D).

    it was fun but without as much depth as the first movie basically.

    Things I liked (and yes, there are spoilers):


    Things I hated:


    I also witnessed the power of editing, once again.

    That stupid clip of Claire and Owen talking, released shortly before the film came out, where he sounds like a misogynist ass? Turns out that that scene comes after both of their characters are established in the movie, and by that point we know she's kind of a workaholic flake and he's actually a pretty decent / respectful human being, so in the movie it comes off more like he's just taking a few deserved pokes at her because she was such a flake on their single date, just to needle her a little.

    --

    I thought I recognized the boys. The eldest was the lead in the movie, "The Kings of Summer."

    The younger one was the son in the Insidious movies.

    definitely worth seeing in imax. too bad it lacks the spielbergian touch.

    this is the second time that bryce dallas howard and judy greer have played sisters, the first being 'the village'.

    things i liked and disliked (off the top of my head)

    Yeah, we have mainly the same list, and there were things you mention that I didn't quite specify that I had the same opinion of.

    There should have been a LOT of deaths. And not just from dinosaurs, but heart attacks, people getting trampled, etc.

    About Claire and the paddock:
