    I mean the game was a massive disappointment but that was for mechanical reasons, ie sub par gameplay. I honestly dont care about awful writing in games (by now I just expect it to be awful), I do care when sub par writing is in the movies. Although to be fair, the writing isnt video game level bad in this movie, its just not great either. Thing is though, all the ways the TR game f**ked up are the things that should (and actually do) work in a movie. A set piece in a game like TR is boring as f**k because you aren't really playing it and the developers aren't talented enough to sell you with just the wow factor (like UC and CoD can). So in TR the game you are just watching sub par CGI unfold. It works in a movie though. The only exceptional bit in the film is a set piece in the middle. Great action, editing and visuals.

    Saw Tomb Raider. Pretty faithful to the rebooted game with tons of little nods toward it. LOTS of fan service, right till the end. My wife is an absolute junkie for adventure/lost ruins/ancient secrets kinda films. So she really liked it. I thought it was just about ok. Not terrible but nothing memorable either. They really should have hired some better writers though. A lot of the Lara-daddy dialogue was pretty bland and since that is the core of the story of the movie, it really felt like a let down. I just didnt care at all about their relationship and the writing never made me. The action sequences were actually pretty decent. Alicia Vikander is pretty good. She is likable but could have been used better. Walton Goggins was the best actor in the film by far and he did what he could with the material but still the script is a huge let down. Overall, you can give it a miss and watch the Blu Ray/whatever. Its decent but I wouldnt call it must watch in theaters. If you are a massive TR fan, its probably worth watching in a cinema though.

    As long as its not garbage, I am ok. I am not expecting it to be great.

    Tickets booked for Tomb Raider tomorrow with the Mrs. I wanted to watch Shape of water but there is no show that is at the right time. So you got big shoes to fill TR. Dont be sh*t.
  6. ~The TV Shows Thread~

    Two documentaries on Netflix I saw over the last 2-3 weeks. 1 Dirty Money - fantastic. 2 Betting on Zero - f**king Fantastic. Go watch.
  7. PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

    A shooting range and ingame text chat would be a thousand time more useful to players. But you cant sell them in loot crates so I guess we are gonna be waiting on those for a while.

    So Avengers is 2.5 hours long. This might be dangerous. You shouldnt have an erection for that long of a period of time.
  9. Battlefield 1

    WW1 should be fine. The vehicles/weapons/maps etc are a lot closer to what a normal BF game should be. BF1 was a f**k up. The player count should show that to EA. Hopefully they learn.
  10. Streaming Services thread

    Yeah I pay like 200 bucks and its good value for that. Anymore though, I dont think I would bother.
  11. ~The TV Shows Thread~

    Yep. I am only two episodes in but it is really fun.
  12. Online Shopping : deals and discussion thread

    My bad, I had no idea. I sold something a while back IIRC and it worked fine then.
  13. Movie Discussion Thread

    I had tickets for Black Panther today. Overslept and missed it. Saturday retry. :/
  14. Rainbow Six Siege

    Lion sounds stupidly OP. But then again, I thought the same about Dokkaebi and she turned out fine.
