As much as I enjoyed Bohemian Rhapsody, after seeing Rocketman, I’m inclined to view the Rami Malik Oscar-winning flick as amateur filmmaking — odd, especially since Dexter Fletcher was involved in both movies, although his influence was far more noticeable and impactful on the new Elton John biopic.
Tomb Raider is more about Croft’s bravery, intelligence, and determination. In her first leading role post-Oscar win (for The Danish Girl), Alicia Vikander shines and her months of training for the role clearly paid off. She is almost too pretty for the role and when she was originally cast, many doubted that she could do it physically (no one doubts her talents as an actor). But she definitely proved everyone wrong.
