Review: Tomb Raider « lancalass

My Sister Pauline, called Home Too Soon.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane , I would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again.

The greatest gift our parents gave us..was each other.

If I had a flower for every memory I have with you, I could forever walk in my garden.

Rest In Peace knowing how much I love you!!

All I ask is that you remember me at the alter of God.


A sundown splendid and serene,
A sister’s kiss upon your cheek,
A timeless moment when you are thanked,
You smile but cannot speak.
Such gifts are rich beyond compare,
And compensate for grief and care.
We lost a very special sister and best friend the day you were called home so suddenly and without warning..
Loved with a love beyond all telling,
Missed with a grief beyond all tears.
Goodnight and God Bless Pauline I love you and miss you so much…xxx

Re-united with her loving parents and brothers Peter and John, sister Patrica. Missed by her loving husband Peter also daughter Susan and Ebony her granddaughter,  son Anthony, and Grandsons.. Not forgetting  Brian and Granddaughter Julie.

All of you Rest In Peace!


Review: Tomb Raider

From a strictly action-hero point of view, Alicia Vikander’s 2018 incarnation of Lara Croft is about as similar to Angelina Jolie’s 2001 original as Postman Pat is to The Terminator.

While Jolie’s gun-toting, high-status Lara opened her movie by annihilating a multi-armed robot while throwing the sort of kung-fu moves that made Bruce Lee look arthritic, Vikander’s begins with her working out in the local gym followed by a rather dull catch-me-if-you-can bicycle game around the not-very-mean streets of London.

Which is not to say the 2018 Tomb Raider reboot is worse than version 2.001. That would be nigh on impossible.

It’s just a different proposition. Less a high-concept video game reimagined for the big screen, more a Gregory’s Girl spin-off with the tiniest hint of Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

oday’s Lara is in her early 20s, broke and scraping a living in London as a bicycle courier. That’s her choice. She could be as rich as>>
