Am not sure how good writing could save the fundamental premise from sucking. Granted, I never liked Indiana Jones either.
You are dead to me.
indiana jones and lara croft is a bit different... though we has always thought that lucas didn't genuine understand the appeal of indiana jones. honest. lucas seemed to believe that indiana jones were camp. the character and movies were intended as a tongue-in-cheek homage to the b-movie adventure flicks o' a bygone era. am s'posing that is why so much o' the sequel movie content went over poorly with fans. stuff that lucas thought were campy fun, such as short round and aliens in south america, typical didn't go over quite as well with audiences. raiders of the lost ark were 'posed to be camp. for Gromnir, it wasn't. oh sure, there were moments o' humor in indiana jones, but perhaps we were too young to realize that we weren't s'posed to take indiana jones and nazis searching for magical treasures in the deserts o' north africa with any degree o' seriousness.
we don't know lara croft as we has never actual played the games, but to an outsider, the appeal o' the character would seem to be different. to us, lara croft were not so much trying to replicate the appeal o' indiana jones so much as it were trying to one-up pitfall harry.
as to daisy being too soft for the role, we will observe that linda hamilton were far more soft before the second terminator film.
am s'posing that the actress transformations o' linda hamilton and jessica biel from too soft is why we is so disappointed with gal gadot's wonder woman efforts. even so, is no reason to believe daisy can't be hard... if that is the direction intended for the character.
HA! Good Fun!
