The Av Club review of Peter Rabbit has confirmed my suspicion that it’s going to be crap

It is meant to be pretty crappy, though The AV Club is pretty crappy itself these days…

they’ve just made a film about a cartoon rabbit and taken the name off a book that already exists, doubt there are any other similarities.

also james corden does the voice so obviously it’ll be horrendous

I thought the trailer for Tomb Raider looked pretty good, was not interested in it before but it looked promising.

I know the bar for video game adaptations is pretty low but as Lara Croft is essentially a female Indiana Jones it’s not necessarily a foregone conclusion that it’ll be terrible. The presence of Alicia Vikander should raise expectations, surely (unless this is her Catwoman / Aeon Flux, let’s hope not).

“OPEN THE TOMB!”

And Walton Goggins!

Oh for sure Alicia Vikander looks to be very well cast. I have no doubt she could carry a high quality action film. It just looked like everything and everyone else (well, fucking Dominic West. Walton Goggins is usually great but didn’t do it for me in the trailer) is the usual old shit.
I hope I’m wrong.

also I broke my Liam Neeson rule and watched Non Stop with my housemates after we came in from the pub last night cos we wanted to watch a dumb action film and holy shit did it make me angry.

there’s been a new game in recent years innit, might as well reboot the films, they’re rebooting absolutely everything else

Could have said that about Jumanji, and look what happened. This isn’t going to make a billion dollars by any means, but you never know what will strike gold I guess
