A keen-eyed Philly Voice reader highlighted this paragraph from a review of the new Tomb Raider film published yesterday. Philly Voice contributor Jerome Maida felt the need to compare Alicia Vikander and Angelina's Jolie's body types to explain why the new Tomb Raider is inferior.

If you click on the link to the review (here's a link that won't give them pageviews), the part of the review highlighted in the tweet has been excised, with a note added to the bottom of the review stating it was removed. The review itself? Actual garbage that summarizes bits of the plot in a dimissive manner, but provides no coherent criticisms of the film.
Sadly, we get a look at what could have been in the after-credits scene, where Croft finally brandishes her trademark guns and confident swagger. @TombRaiderMovie #TombRaider @AliciaVikanderD https://t.co/ivcknRes4u— PhillyVoice (@thephillyvoice) March 14, 2018
People have been dragging the hell out of this dude, obviously:
Only a white dude could swagger up to this movie, take “critical” aim and then so thoroughly humiliate himself as he tries to formulate anything resembling a thought. I tip my hat to you, Jerome Maida. Most men only glimpse the kind of mediocrity you’ve grasped with both hands. https://t.co/w2JzRdTfVw— andrewkarre (@andrewkarre) March 15, 2018

I wasn't checking for this film before I read this tweet, but now I kind of want to go opening day?
