    Tomb Raider


    The fresh attempt to turn beloved video game heroine Lara Croft into the lead of a film series. 2018's Tomb Raider is indeed the reboot the times call for and gets pretty much everything on the checklist right, yet it plays way too safe to prove why its cinematic existence is so essential.
