    I rather enjoyed this iteration of "Tomb Raider."

    Vikander doesn't quite have the star power of Jolie, but she has far more emotional complexity to her version of Croft, which in turn gives the audience a richer version.

    It's not a complete win for the film, however. The pacing is all over the place and plot points are flatly borrowed from other franchises ("The Mummy," "Indiana Jones").

    But given how disastrous most video game adaptations have been, this one is coherent and serviceable. It does its job and I'm actually excited about a potential sequel.

    I didn't hate this but also didn't find it unique/interesting enough for me to love it.

    It's a subpar/serviceable spy thriller that largely works only due to Lawrence's performance.

    "Wonder Woman" is not only the best DCEU film so far, it's a fantastic film on its own merits. It hardens back to classic action adventure films.

    Does it drag in spots? Sure. Is the third act a bit too bombastic? Sure.

    However, these are small criticisms in a movie that's largely fantastic. The movie is layered with the harsh truths of this world but also a lovely veil of compassion and love.

    Patty and Gal, thank you for this.
