Angie saved the series?

Yes. Around TR4/TR5 the series was slowly fading, Angelina saved it with the TR1 movie

After the unfairly critically panned Angel of Darkness, Angelina saved the series once again (making everyone forget about how negative AOD was)


Her being in the reboot movie will have everyone in the spirited TR mood.

He's a delusional Angie fanboy who doesn't know what he's talking about. Just ignore him.

The only delusional fanboy here is you! every time Angellah is in discussion, you're quick to chug down that can of coke and post about what you think of her at any time given

Angie didn't save anything. After TR1 movie, the sales were still going lower and lower after each games.

TR2 movie... it is even worst. The film was so bad and unsuccessful that TR2 movie's producer said to Eidos that Angel of Darkness played a role in the failure of the movie.

And for the third movie. The Reboot Series is running well, so nothing has to be saved there.

It is quite obvious Angelina can't be a 21 yo girl, would be even more unrealistic than those 25 yo actors playing teenage highschool students in Pretty Little Liars.

I think angie saved the movie series but IMO TR4-6 were decent games.

I know you must feel SOMETHING for her, since you reprimanded me when I made that no-breasts post about her back a ways.

I'm sorry to disappoint you Sir Launcelot. I can honestly say that I don't find her the least bit attractive, quite the opposite in fact.
So far I've never seen a film with her where I didn't feel the urge to replace her with a different actress. That may come across as harsh to some Angie fanboys here, but I prefer to be upfront and honest about it rather than indulge the delusional fanboys.

That doesn't mean I don't wish her all the best in her personal life (hence my comment directed at you that time). I don't know her personally so she's quite possibly a decent person who I'd even enjoy being around in real life.
My criticism of her is only limited to her (undeserved) public status as sex symbol, her undeserved claim to fame, her obnoxious and obsessive fanboys, and her being wrongfully cast as Lara Croft at the expense of far better suited actresses.
So to put it short; she's a public figure and I criticise her as such (which includes looks as that plays a major part in her claim to fame), but not as a private person (not me nor anyone else here knows her privately anyway).
