Tomb raider is a predictable film with a lara croft you can get behind

The first reason I wanted to watch Tomb Raider was that the first thing I saw about the film — poster or trailer — wasn’t a perky pair of breasts in a really tight tank. I may be one of the very few people who couldn’t really get behind Angelina Jolie’s uber sexy Lara Croft in the two films that she played the popular video game lead, whether she looked exactly like the character or not. Alicia Vikander’s casual look in Tomb Raider is far more appealing. And while the film is not anything to write home about, this is a Lara Croft that I can definitely get behind.

Keeping up with the Jones

For the past dozen years, Melissa Rosenberg has devoted herself to some seriously gloomy characters. She was the screenwriter behind the Twilight movies and their tortured vampires, not to mention serving as the head writer on the serial killer drama Dexter, before she created the noir-superhero Netflix series Jessica Jones. On this late January afternoon, the six-foot-tall Rosenberg walked across her sunny, sparsely decorated Los Feliz office in a tan blazer, green silk camisole and sleek blonde bob, exuding not a trace of gothiness. She has never been the kind of woman who favoured a sepulchral black wardrobe and moody make-up, as her latest show’s heroine does. But with Jessica Jones, which returns March 8 for a second season, she is able to let the spikiest elements of her imagination run amok.
