Tomb Raider (2018)

This is the Lara Croft movie we should have had before we got Angelina Jolie’s efforts.

While she isn’t a tomb raider yet, strictly speaking, we do get some interesting glimpses into the life Lara Croft might have lived before she became the star of movies and video games. This is more the ‘Young Indiana’ to Indiana’s later efforts.

High points:

Plenty of action, even if some of it is a bit stretching of the disbelief meter. Most of the first 80% of the film is decent for keeping your pulse going, but some of the final tomb bits are a bit over the top. Nothing to walk out of the theatre over, but a bit out of place when put up against the more grounded action of most of the rest of the film.

Weaving of future threads...

The Dark Tower

Directed by: Nikolaj Arcel
Written by: Nikolaj Arcel, Akiva Goldsman, Jeff Pinkner, and Anders Thomas Jensen

The Dark Tower is a disappointment.

Usually I’d start with a synopsis of the plot, but the plot of this movie is so barebones that it hardly matters, and I think a bit of a disclaimer is important here. The Dark Tower is based off of the Stephen King novels of the same name, which I’ve been a fan of for years, and in fact, I’ve been waiting for this adaptation of the series for years. To me, it’s a massive disappointment. Perhaps, for people who have not read the books, it will simply be a shallow, but serviceable action film, but for a fan of the books, it is a massive disappointment, and that’s bound to affect how I see the movie as a whole.

While King’s magnum opus ser...

The Lego Batman Movie

One of the cinematic highlights of 2014 was the animated feature, The Lego Movie, and one of the most entertaining aspects of that film, was the Will Arnett voiced Batman character, and his one-liners.  Fast-forward to 2017, and now the animated blockbuster of the year is The Lego Batman Movie.

I would love to call this a solo Batman film, but in addition to Arnett’s Batman, there are a wealth of great characters, both heroes and villains.  Part of the fun of this one is seeing so many great characters, from both the DC Universe, but also many other of the Lego character universes…and hearing the voice talents of so many great performers like Michael Cera (Robin), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl), Ralph Fiennes (Alfred), Zach Galifianakis (Joker), and even Siri as the Batcomputer...
