Tomb Raider (2018, dir. Roar Uthaug)

A bike courier/heiress follows clues left by her missing father to a forbidden tomb. OK series reboot with plenty of action, chases and the usual set-piece puzzle lair supernatural finale. Nothing new, but competently done, with a good central performance.

Another perspective required? Here’s Xussia’s review.

The Day of the Jackal (1973, dir. Fred Zinnemann)

1963. An international hitman is hired to assassinate Charles de Gaulle; a manhunt ensues. A meticulous and clinical film, almost documentary in its approach, which expertly captures Рand in some areas improves on Рthe bestseller its based upon. Highly recommended.
