Tomb Raider (2018)
Over the years, the Tomb Raider video game starring the famous female Lara Croft got lost with time. With the first game coming out in 1996 with it spanning a series that was praised, it was basically a good female Indiana Jones in my mind. With its fame came a film series starring Angelina Jolie that started in 2001. A series that spawned two films that were sloppy and a missed opportunity. With a reboot video game that came out in 2013, it would only be time before a reboot film series was to follow. It's finally here.
'Tomb Raider' Review
As I was watching the new “Tomb Raider”, which is based on the Lara Croft video games, and, of course, is a reboot of the ‘01 & ‘03 films starring Angelina Jolie, I couldn’t help but think that this is the kind of movie normally released in the summertime, not in mid-March.

Tomb Raider (2018) Review
SPOILER WARNING — "Tomb Raider" is directed by Roar Uthaug (The Wave) and its screenplay is written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet (debut) and Alastair Siddons (Trespass Against Us). Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) stars as Lara Croft; she is accompanied by Walton Goggins (Justified), Dominic West (The Wire) and Daniel Wu (New Police Story). "Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared". It has been 15 years since "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life"; has enough time passed for a reimagining of the character?

'The Cloverfield Paradox' review
There is an ideal dimension out there where all films get released in the manner of horror Sci-Fi film 'The Cloverfield Paradox'. You wake up one day and hear X studio has its film screening in theatres or streaming on demand. No exhausting hype (*cough Black Panther*), no spoilery trailers, minimalist marketing controversy. It’s all about the art and the desire to consume it. It then becomes a shame that the film at the end of this stunt was woefully underwhelming. The basic narrative now is that the powers-that-be at Netflix and Paramount felt the Julius Onah-directed ‘Cloverfield Paradox’ was so much of a bust that just dumping it after the Super Bowl was a prudent option. I don't blame them.
