Tomb Raider Is Like A Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich, Plain But Tasty (Movie Review)

I feel like I have been waiting forever for this reincarnation of the Tomb Raider movie franchise.  While we just covered the Angelina Jolie films in 4K over here and here recently I never truly identified with them.  I found Angelina Jolie likable in the looks department, but was not able to fully marry myself […]
