Day 11: Do you like the movies? Why or why not?
The first movie was all right. I can’t say that I’m a big fan, because let’s be honest they are kind of bad movies. I do think Angelina Jolie made a good Lara Croft, but she certainly wouldn’t have been my top choice for the role. The fact that this was the first incarnation that introduced the parental issues is one thing I am not particularly fond of, but to each their own. I honestly would have liked them more if they had been in the same vein as the original games, but I understand that the filmmakers wanted to do their own thing and were encouraged to do so by Eidos. I am hoping that the new movie will do the Tomb Raider series more justice, but I’m not going to count on it simply because film adaptations of video games rarely go over well.
