New Lara Croft found for new Tomb Raider reboot… who is it???

Alicia Vikander who is the star of the “Ex-Machina” movie is now the new Lara Croft for the upcoming “Tomb Raider” reboot. She’ll be taking over the role that Angelina Jolie portrayed twice.

I only liked the first Tomb Raider with Angie but the second one kind of sucked. I hope they make the next movie right next time ’cause I’m a pretty big Lara Croft fan. I love all the Tomb Raider games. Huge fan of them.

Hope they do a good job with the next movie and hope they make it more like the video game. I’m sure the movie will be full of action scenes, of course but they need to focus on story like the original games were. I’d like to see Lara solving puzzles in historical places like in the games, ya know? That’s what the next movie needs.

I’m a big Tomb Raider fan so I hope they don’t mess the next movie up. Please give it a good script this time.

Game Review: “Tomb Raider” (2013)

So today, I just finished the new, “Tomb Raider” game for the PS3. A game made by the company of , Crystal Dynamix. The new game is a re-boot, starting the series over again. It focuses on the origins of Lara Croft. A new era of the franchise.

The story is about Lara,  who planned to travel to an Island near Japan called, Yamatai, in search of lost relics and to investigate a lost kingdom. To get there, she travels aboard on a huge   salvage vessel called, The Endurance, but the ship was destroyed before she even got to the island. Of course, Lara survives and so does several others who survived from the Endurance destruction. While on the search for the lost kingdom on Yamatai, Lara discovers that there is a team of evil cult members who try to kill her. So she uses combat skills and various weapons to survive. Lara’s best friend, Sam, was kidnapped by the cult leader, Matthias, so she must rescue her friend so she and her Endurance survivors can get off the Island alive.

Okay, I was pretty impressed with the game. Story line is nice. I like how the game takes on a new and different direction for Lara Croft. The graphics are pretty insane for the new game, so that’s a huge plus. As far as the game play goes, there’s a lot more action and violence, more than the puzzle solving and exploration. What made the Tomb Raider games important, is because they were mostly known for solving puzzles and exploring archaeological  landscapes, and different locations. I have noticed there was a lot less than that in this new game. Plus, in the older games, you had to figure out Lara’s acrobatic moves, and there is a lot less of that as well. This one was more of a survival, action/adventure, and third person shooter (much like Uncharted, Dead Space, etc). The new game franchise wants to give it a current feeling with the other game franchises. I understand the makers of the game, wanted the Tomb Raider franchise to have more violence and action, but the whole point of Tomb Raider is “archaeology”.

My other gripe about the game is how Lara just wears a tank top throughout most of it. They had her wearing the tank top even in the freezing cold weather and areas where there’s a lot of  lava, and fire. How much punishment can the girl handle? Ah well, it’s just a freakin’ game, right?

Even though, the new Tomb Raider game, had a few minor disappointments, I was pretty impressed with the game. It was phenomenal, and they did a great job for the most part. I just wish there would be more puzzle solving, exploration, and acrobatic moves. Maybe, there will be more of that in the sequel, hopefully? This was just an introduction. So you don’t need to play the earlier Tomb Raider games if you’re just getting into them ’cause this would be a good one to start off with.

I was kind of hoping they would continue the story after “Tomb Raider: Underworld” the last T.R. game, ’cause that game was beautiful. That game was a true Tomb Raider but of course, Crystal Dynamix had to re-boot the series. I’m good with the new game, though. “Tomb Raider” (2013) was great. Gameplay was a blast. It was a pretty long game too. It was also pretty challenging actually. It was a real bitch trying to get past these gun battles. I didn’t use guns that much for weapons. Most of it was bow and arrow. That’s what made the new game fun, a lot of archery. Lara never had a bow and arrow before and it’s a new thing for the Tomb Raider franchise. Of course, they had to make her hot looking with nice boobs and all.

I was most impressed with the game’s sound. Turn your surround sound on while playing this game, and it’ll be better than watching a movie in the theater. Expect a lot of loud explosions, that you will feel the floor vibrate under your feet.

It was a pretty sick game, and I’m already looking forward to the sequel. Hopefully, they fix those minor things. More puzzle solving, exploration, and acrobatics. I only completed 81% of the game ’cause I couldn’t find all the artifacts and diaries. I found most of them, though. I could go back and find the rest of them if I wanted, but they just help unlock more rewards and extras for the game, so that’s not important. It is recommended for all. Even for longtime Tomb Raider fans and newbies.

Report: MGM officially re-booting Tomb Raider film franchise…

After the re-boot of the “Tomb Raider” game franchise, it was only a matter of time, that MGM was going to confirm their re-boot of “Tomb Raider” films, sooner or later. Look like they’re finally going for it. This won’t be a third installment to the Angelina Jolie films. It will be a complete re-boot, and they are having plans in having a new actress play, Lara Croft.

It’s sounding like that they may make the new film adapted from the new game that was just released.

More on the story, here.

I’m almost finished with the new, “Tomb Raider”, game. As soon as I finish the game, I’ll give the game a full detailed review.

As for who I want to play the new Lara Croft for the new film, I think Jennifer Lawrence might be a good choice. Jennifer’s role in “The Hunger Games” movie, was kind of like Lara Croft. Jennifer looked great with a bow and arrow, and other survival equipment, she might be a good fit. I just hope they don’t go for somebody like Megan Fox or Zoe Saldana.

I thought the first Tomb Raider with Angelina was great, but the second one, “Cradle of Life” sucked. This film franchise deserves a re-boot with better films. Don’t hurt to give it another try.

Cool Video: Could this be the best Tomb Raider game ever???

I have been playing “Tomb Raider” games, for years. I fucking love them! It’s not only because I have a crush on a female video game character, Lara Croft, is a hot piece of ass for sure, but there are more important reasons why these games rule! It’s because the stories are awesome. Plus, I love going around solving puzzles, and the acrobatics of Lara is just mind blowing. I love how she is able to climb really high places and discover things that are unbelievable. These are incredible games. While I do think the last Tomb Raider game, “Tomb Raider: Underworld” was a beautiful game, I think this one is going to be even better. I sure can’t wait for this game to come out. I will get it for sure.

Speaking of video games, I haven’t been playing much games hardly at all lately. Probably because I spend so much time playing guitar more. I should get back into video gaming, though. I need to get back into, “Skyrim”, which I still have. I love video games, sure, I just don’t spend  hours and hours gaming all day like most kids do. I only play video games, when I get really really bored.

Cool Video: The new upcoming “Tomb Raider” RPG game looks pretty cool, can’t wait!!!

There’s a new Tomb Raider game coming out but the new game is a re-invention. It won’t be like the earlier games. The game series is re-booting, and they will be turned into Role Playing Games. They will also have free roam. At first, I was skeptical of the Tomb Raider re-invention but after seeing the gameplay footage here in this video, I think I’m pretty much sold and will get it. I’m a very big Tomb Raider fan. I love Lara Croft. The games are so much fun.

Yes, San Diego Comic Con is happening right now as I type this, so I will be posting a lot of SDCC stuff, like I do every year in my blogs. Enjoy, the gameplay footage taken at SDCC.

Report: “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” re-boot gets writers…

GK Films has hired new writers, for the upcoming “Tomb Raider” re-boot. They have hired, Mark Fergus and Hawk Otsby, who brought us “Iron Man” and “Cowboys & Aliens”.

Deadline, reports.

I usually disagree with re-boot films but this franchise needs to start over again ’cause the last Tomb Raider movie was pretty bad. I liked the first “Tomb Raider” film but the second one sucked.

The movie needs to be more like the video games. Have Lara solve mysteries and puzzles in historical places. It needs to have a good story and great action scenes.

I still say Rhona Mitra should be the new Lara Croft for the live action movie. She did the voice overs for the video games. I love Tomb Raider games. Especially the last one, “Tomb Raider: Underworld” which is the best Tomb Raider game ever, I think. She’s like a female version of Indiana Jones but a little different.

I hope the new movie will have Lara climb really high things much like the games. That’s what makes the games so much fun and addicting because Lara can do cool things. I hope they do a good job with the movie next time around. I want a good Tomb Raider flick like everyone else.

Hopefully they don’t just make it a popcorn action flick full of violence and CGI effects. This should be a serious Tomb Raider movie with a good story.

Report: “Tomb Raider” re-boot, officially green lighted!!!

GK Films, have announced that they have green lighted, the “Tomb Raider” series.

Read the full story here at, Deadline.

I loved the first, “Tomb Raider” flick, it was actually a great film. I hated the second one though, “Cradle of Life” that was a shit movie. I can see why they’re re-booting since the second one wasn’t that great.

I hope they do a good job with the re-boot. Now that Angelina Jolie is officially out, who do I think will replace?

I’d like to see these 5 actresses replace Angie:

-Michelle Rodriguez

-Minka Kelly

-Noomi Rapace

-Mila Kunis

-Rhona Mitra

Rhona Mitra would probably be the best choice of them all. Why? Because she played the voice overs for Lara Croft for a few Tomb Raider video games, plus, she starred in “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans” movie. Rhona would be more fitting.It would be great if Rhona plays Lara in a live action film. She did voice over for Lara in a video game but not for a film. She deserves this opportunity. Rhona have done lots of action movies, so she can handle her own stunts.

Report: Tomb Raider trilogy being re-released for the PS3 in HD on March 22nd, 2011!!!

I am very excited for this news. I’m such a huge Tomb Raider fan, that’s another why I got the PS3 since the Tomb Raider series are for Playstation only. Crystal Dynamix, announced they will re-release the new Tomb Raider trilogy: “Tomb Raider: Legend”, “Tomb Raider: Anniversary” and, “Tomb Raider: Underworld”. They will be re-released in HD versions. The Tomb Raider trilogy will hit stores on March 22nd, in 2011.

More on it, here.

I’ll definitely be buying the new trilogy. Even though I already own, “Tomb Raider: Underworld” and played it, I want to see what that game will be like in HD. I never got to play the older Tomb Raider games and I’m glad I’ll get to soon.

I never played the classic Tomb Raider games from the PS1, but you can download the classics from the PSN Store which I will do soon. I love Lara Croft. Not just for the video game character, it’s just that these games are so fun. I love solving puzzles and things like that.

I also think, the reason they are re-releasing the entire trilogy is because this could be a hint that they have plans for a Tomb Raider 4??? Probably.

Report: Please give Lara Croft role to Rhona Mitra for new “Tomb Raider”!!!!

It would be a smart thing for Warner Bros. to do if they sign Rhona Mitra as Lara Croft for the new live action “Tomb Raider” movie. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that they are definitely moving on without Angelina with the reboot.

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/film/news/e3i85756b4e0ca108bcc0e6cf82b7389501

They better give the role to Rhona Mitra, I hope. I think Rhona did the best portrayal of Lara Croft. Rhona looks exactly like the video game character and she has the perfect speaking voice for the character. They should bring Rhona to the live action version.

Rhona is good at live action films because she is starring the leading role in “Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans”. Come on Warner Bros., ask Rhona to do it, I’m sure she would do it if she was asked!!! This will make video gamers go crazy if she was in the new “Tomb Raider” flick.

I liked the first Tomb Raider with Jolie, but didn’t like the second one, so I’m actually glad they’re starting over.
