Tomb Raider’s De-Sexified Lara Croft Wasn’t Enough To Win Over Critics

Tomb Raider (2018)

The entertainment industry has been on a sociopolitical binge on trying to forcefully rewire the brains of men so that they don’t find women attractive anymore. They’ve done this by turning many female heroines into more masculine protagonists, or by de-sexifying them by lowering their sex appeal. We’ve seen this time and time again with many reboots, sequels and even new intellectual properties. A prime example of this is how Crystal Dynamics rebooted Tomb Raider in 2013 with a lot of grit, blood, grime and a Lara Croft who was far less sexy than her previous outings. This trend carried over into the rebooted live-action movie of Tomb Raider starring Swedish actress Alicia Vikander.

Review Report: Ghostbusters Isn’t Worth The Price Of Entry

Activision licensed the Ghostbusters property to make a tie-in movie game only loosely related to the 2016 film reboot. Unlike Sony, however, Activision has tried keeping a low profile with promoting the game (or what could barely be considered as promotion), avoiding the shamevertising that Sony and director Paul Feig have used by throwing around “isms” to guilt an audience into seeing the new film. Instead, Activision rolled out the new game silently for $49.99, almost as if they were ashamed of it. Continue reading “Review Report: Ghostbusters Isn’t Worth The Price Of Entry”
