Mugato: She's no early 2000s Angelina Jolie.


And thank goodness.  Cradle of Life was on television yesterday, so I tried watching it, having never seen it.  What a shiat film, I couldn't even finish it it was so bad.  The first one wasn't much better.

Also, I couldn't stop referring to the movie as 'Cradle of Filth' in my head, much to my amusement.

I find Vikander much hotter. Maybe because Jolie always came off like an inflatable raft to me, both in image and in personality.

Maybe someday people will realize that video game plots can be serviceable and even fun, but almost never are the primary drivers of a game's success. The plot of the tomb raider franchise if you take out the gameplay is "indiana jones with a girl". That is not enough to drive a successful narrative without the interaction of video games to back it up.

Again, another failure article being greenlit about Tomb Raider breaking a supposed video game movie curse.   The guy in the video calls Double Dragon a 'literal masterpiece' and says that despite Resident Evil grossing over 1 BILLION, video game movies are not successful.  And this guy has not seen Silent Hill or Mortal Kombat I guess?  Just stop with this.

You know what "Indiana Jones with a girl" results in?

At least they have been preserved for posterity on celluloid and other media.

Saw it last night and I will say that it's a success that it didn't suck.  They used the reboot game as a very rough template for the story and came out above the low average set by other video game movies.  Also what is a "successful" video game movie?  Is it one the fans of the game like or is it by sheer dollar take?

Resident Evil as a franchise may have crossed a billion but it's mostly in worldwide dollars.  Basically it's the Michael Bay formula of "screw the story throw in more explosions" to make money overseas.  The new method seems to be "shoehorn in a Chinese actor to get that money from China" unfortunately.  Instead of you know, actually having a good Chinese character as part of the story.

Did they at least discard that stupid "science vs. belief" theme from the source material? Because that was head-deskingly stupid.

It was dumb but fun. I have no complaints.

She is nude in "Ex Machina", and she looks so much like a 10 year old that I thought the police were going to arrest me for watching that movie.

She must have an industrial-strength upper foundation garment. The right one isn't even *looking* downwards.
