Tomb Raider. It started as a computer game, which got geeks into the movie – thanks to the large rack of jugs in the female lead character. Apparently, heterosexual behavior still exists? (Haha! Just a joke – we wouldn’t have a frickin’ society if the heterosexual activity did NOT exist? Get it, idiots?)
“Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who–against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith, and inherently stubborn spirit–must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.”
Anyway – from the trailer – it looks like yet another 2-3 hour distraction from real life. Appeared well-shot, etc. I’ll tell you this much, we’ll never see it. We just don’t consume these societal time-wasters anymore. Regardless of the dopamine hits we might receive.
PS – when you’re traveling (by foot, bike, or car), notice the number of TV screens you can see emanating from the various households that don’t block their interior with window blinds. Think about what that means. Think about all those people “connected” to that visual message board. How does that translate long-term?
