Ready Player One Movie Review

Ready Player One Movie Review: If you haven’t read Ernest Cline’s 2011 immersive novel Ready Player One, you may not understand why it’s so gratifying as a fan that its adaptation fell into the hands of Stephen Spielberg.

Tomb Raider 2018 Movie Review

Tomb Raider 2018: Like other action heroes before her such as Bond, Bourne, and Lisbeth Salander (I think she deserves to be thrown in here), Lara Croft receives the additional adaptation treatment 17 years after the last time we saw the heroine on the big screen. Now portrayed by Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, Croft is […]
