    Tomb Raider

    [COLOR=purple] I am looking forward to seeing Tomb Raider. It is a great game and I am glad they picked Angelina Jollie to play Lara. Has anybody seen what the woman looks like who was the model for the computer game lara Croft?
    one is backfire, three is gunplay.

    I cant wait for Tomb Raider to hit the big screen. Angelina Jolie rocks and looks to be perfect for this role. I just hope the movie is as good as all the hype that is preceding it.

    No, she merely has no talent, and is only famous for having a large, erm, personality and wearing very few clothes.
    I'm really not flaming, but can you name anything worthwhile she's ever done?

    Saz, Saz, Saz...

    She has been in over 20 movies.

    Gone in 60 Seconds
    Girl, Interrupted
    The Bone Collector
    Pushing Tin

    Are among the most well known. Polymath, I can't believe that you say she has no talent. You don't win back to back Golden Globe awards OR an Oscar nomination for having large breasts. She is a very skilled and talented actress with a broad range.

    Plus she's hot and she likes to play with knives.

    girl interrupted
    the bone collector
    gone in 60 seconds (ok so its no oscar nominee but she looks wicked driving those cars)

    about the smiley - I thought it was appropriate


    Saz - have a look at this site, then you will know who she is.... http://www.tombraidermovie.com/

    Well, she won a friggin' Oscar -- counts for something, doesn't it?

    Yes, she's very well cast in this role. As for someone who asked about the models for Lara Croft: there have been several. Rhona Mitra and Nell McAndrew both modeled to assist the game designers and such, but I think Lara Weller is the most recent model.

    AHHH...so you're one of THOSE people.

    The ones who say "I'm not old" then continually say "it must be the age".

    Actually, Creole, now I've realised who it is you're all talking about, I've sussed it. It's not an age thing at all. It's a testosterone thing - or lack of it on my part

    I have big enough 'assets' of my own, so I'm not the type to stand up and pay attention ( ) when an actress of equal proportions comes along - I don't swing that way, you know.

    My wavelength is more along the lines of Brad Pitt, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Kevin Costner, Patrick Swayze...........hmmm......brb........just gonna go take a cold shower

    ummmm....

    But remember though, she's a good Actress too. Her "merits" stand on their own (lets see how far we can take the entendres). She has proven that by winning two Globes and an Oscar. Yes she is beautiful and sensual, but she is a great actress two.

    I haven't seen any of the films she's been in, though, so I can't comment on that. I just recognize her from the Gone In 60 Seconds trailer, but I do understand what you're getting at.

    Gone In 60 Seconds will be screened on our movie channels shortly, and I'll tell you then how much I think her talent really stands out.

    Loved her in "Gone in 60 Seconds". She was good in "Girls Interupte". "Gia" was a pretty good role of hers too. I think she is a pretty good actress to. And she is hot, even my g/f thinks she is hot, and as Saz puts it she "doesnt swing that way".

    We're all forgetting Hackers! I love that film, had to buy the DVD because I came close to wearing out the VHS version. I've no idea why I like it so much, but I do

    Saz...while I think she did a good job in Gone in 60 Seconds, I don't believe that role was one of her better ones. YOu would be well off seeing Girl, Interrupted as that is a much more dramatic role.

    I would like to see it soon as well. MTV had a 30 minute thing on her because of the Tomb Raider movie. They talked about Girl, Interrupted and it looked amazing.

    Girls Interupted was very good.. Angelina Jolie does a great job in this movie. You are right about 60 Seconds not being one of her best, it wasnt really a movie that was supposed to have a plot or great characters. It is really just the Ultimate Guy Flick, fast cars, and Angelia Jolie. What more could you ask for?

    oh yeah, hackers was pretty good too.. Crash and Burn baby..

    I like Nic Cage - what a fascinating actor.

    I was surprised to hear that Angelina had an oscar (Best Supporting Actress, Girl Interrupted, 2000).

    She's the daughter of Jon Voight. "Jolie" was originally her middle name

    I haven't seen anything that she is in (I heard that Gone In 60 Seconds wasn't too good).

    mmj.. plot wise, Gone in 60 Seconds wasnt too good. Basically its just a movie about fast cars. It has some good chase seens and such. But the plot in itself is very basic, Retired car thief, must come out of retirement and steal 50 cars in one night or this guy is going to kill his brother. Basically i like it because it has my favorite car in it. a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT 500.. it is one pretty car, i want one so bad..but back on topic, if you want to see something that she was in where she is in top form, Try Girls Interupted or Gia, both good movies.
