Updated the scores. It's now up to a 49 meta.



Wooow. What a shit list. Mortal Kombat is the gold standard? Haa! I liked it 20+ years ago, but partial revisitations on TV over the years have left me raising an eyebrow as to how I liked it as much as I did.

Why the hell didn't they make a game based on the story of the 2013 game? Make Lara fragile, still finding her strength and having to face the dangers of a remote island. That would be such a better script.

To be fair, movie critics are harsh judges, many of these movies got significantly better user reviews than critic reviews. But yeah, we haven't seen a truly great video game based movie yet. But, with over 20 more video games based movies and tv shows in development right now, we're bound to finally get a great one at some point.

This one is mostly based on the 2013 game, but it also contains elements from Rise of the Tomb Raider.

It's more of an action movie though. It should be much more dramatic and focus on the evolution of Lara as a character.

Yeah, I definitely think they should have stuck more closely to the source material. Many of the characters are totally different from the game from what I've seen. 



I plan on seeing it, but then I enjoyed the old ones when I was younger so have a soft spot for Lara.
