A Feminist Reviews Tomb Raider's Lara CroftBy Carol Pinchefsky: There’s no getting around it: Lara Croft, the star of the Tomb Raider series, is a genuine action hero with ginormous breasts, which has made her both a symbol of female self-empowerment and an object of sexual desire. But in Tomb Raider (2013), Lara has been rebooted into a younger version of herself. Is New Lara as determined, resourceful, and capable as Mature Lara?

LOS ANGELES TIMES MOVIE REVIEW
WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY OUTSTANDING
"WAR OF THE WORLDS THE TRUE STORY" is an inventive mock sci-fi docudrama with the conceit that H.G. Wells' 'The War of the Worlds' is a true story." by Gary Goldstein
"Hugely inventive and ambitious concoction "War of the Worlds: The True Story," a mock sci-fi docudrama packed with a truly impressive - and clever - mix of editing (a reported 3 1/2 years' worth), special effects, visual artistry and offbeat storytelling." Read Full Review Here--

Thank you all for patiently awaiting my return whilst I dealt with very happy, joyous personal matters! So grateful to be away for positive reasons. Many fan letters wondered if my blog was on hiatus because of a tragedy such as in War of the Worlds The True Story but, alas, I was away for the most wonderful, glorious reason anyone in the world would be away for a short spell. Thank you all for being concerned for my welfare. It was very touching. War of the Worlds The True Story continues its successful unfolding on the world, having just been in consideration for the 85th Academy Awards and having a fun honorary screening at the Boston Sci-Fi Fest. The true Wells and War of the Worlds fans continue to grow. It's wonderful to have finally made a movie version of War of the Worlds that fans and movie-goers enjoy again and again.
