    No doubt Hollywood gets it wrong alot when it comes to casting, but this is Lara Croft - Tomb Raider. It's perfectly acceptably to cast the bombshell of the month. It's not like you're casting Ignatius J. Reilly with Will Smith..

    Her movies have not gotten good reviews, but her movies are on average getting better and better, grossing money, and she has won and been nominated for several big time awards. So she's moving up the ladder.

    I personally liked Mr and Mrs. Smith a lot, but nobody else liked it.

    Her best movie was probably wanted. And that's not saying much right now, but her last few movies have gotten into the watchable category.

    I'm with BigTitan on this one..
    I wanted to like Wanted, because I really dig the Daywatch/Nightwatch movies that Russian made, but this time it felt like the Hollywood powers than be limited him to making that yawner which was just another spin on The Matrix and Fight Club...

    I'm not very critical of movies with lots of T&A, especially if they're loaded down with automatic weapons. Jolie, Fox, Beckensale, Jovovich, whoever... if she's hot and packin' heat, then get your *** in the kitchen and make me some popcorn.
