She's a pretty little thing, but beyond that I'm neither here nor there about her in regards to Tomb Raider.

Just a bit of a tangent here. I recall your picture from your trip to Florida, and I think you look just fine, ladylinnycroft. :)

She's a pretty one for sure. But she just doesn't have the personality of Lara. Maybe looks, but that's different.

'Tis just my humble opinion though.

Lol I like the way you put that.

I meant to say before that I wish I looked more like Kurtis. Not exactly like Kurtis, but I wish I had more bulk and special abilities like "farsee". Oh well, one must make the most of what one's got, and discover one's hidden potential (ohhh, that was deep).

Kurtis is another reason, why I think, that "AoD" is a disappointment. To my mind, Core shouldn't have introduced a male character to a game, where the main character is a female. It only works the other way around - example: "Max Payne 2". Whoops, I strayed away from the topic.

Karima is a fine looking woman. I think her body type fits the "Lara Croft" look perfectly, her accent is sexy (but then, I'm a sucker for woman with English or Australian accents) and she has that glint in her eyes which completely fits into the "Lara Croft" personality.

That being said, I think the real question is, would you like to date Karima? If the answer is yes, then she's obviously perfect for the role of Lara Croft. If the answer is no, then you are obviously one of the following:

1) Blind :cool:
2) Stupid :nut:
3) Gay ;) (not that gay people are blind and stupid, I make no inference to this, all I'm saying is that a gay guy would probably not date Karima seeing that she's not a man). That being said, a lesbian might :-)
4) Toddler :scratch: ... Well actually a toddler might be attracted to her breasts, :eek: but for entirely different reasons that grown man are attracted to breasts...

I personally vote for yes on the question.

I love her:p

THANK YOU KARIMA:D;)

I was a big fan of Rhona Mitra when she was doing, Nell McAndrew didnt really seem the part.

Karima Adebibe pulls it off rather well to be fair, I mean when you look at the TR: Legend game, she does actually look like Lara, the only problem is that at no point do Eidos stick with a model it tends to skip and jump around a bit.

If they settled on one model it would probably help TR promotion a lot. Would be more consistant. Karima Adebibe it's first class and a good choice. :)

Which doesn't matter; Karima isn't Lara, and there are a million girls who look just as good or better in LC's outfit, and that's real life for ya.

She does have that not-quite-classic-beauty to her, and she's very athletic. I like her a lot as Lara. Eidos obviously changes a lot to further that James Bond-esque vibe Lara has going on.

I'm so going to get flamed here. :whistle:

I'm assuming she isn't British (Tell me I'm wrong, please!), and she has a pot belly, not the wasp-like waistline of our favourite gal. Hope she can do the accent and act at the same time.

I always thought Kate Beckinsale might make a good Lara. She can act and she can do the posh English girl accent without even trying...plus (very big plus) she looks great in a catsuit, judging by her look in 'Underworld'.

Hi macstu23. Let's see here. Hmm. Well, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but "pot belly"? You're refering to Karima, right? C'mon man, don't you think you're exaggerating just a bit?

There's a relief.

Okay perhaps I was being mean with 'pot-bellied'. A little wide in the hips maybe ?, judging by the early photo-shoots. Then again, she has time to work out.

Karima, I sincerely hope you dont read this post, but just in case you do, please dont take my comment too harshly. I'd still date you, if you're into slightly bald guys in their late 30's. ;)

... karima is very nice. personally, i like lara's look from AoD. there's an actress, patricia velasquez (from the mummy, etc.) who would have been great, but i think she's older than angelina. in any case, she's got the look: athletic, incredibly attractive, menacing yet serene, etc. but she probably couldn't get the accent.

angelina is the highest-profile, most marketable lara. IMHO, she's not the best ...

IMO, actress Kari Wuhrer fits more then Angelina, but I can't say anything bad about AJ...she did a good job as Lara.

however, I hope that there wouldn't be a 3rd TR movie, because both previous TR movies only damaged the TR brand. IMO, AJ was the only good thing about it.

Was reading some article that purported to study beauty and the researcher mentioned that the current idea of beauty was to have trout lips. Cracked me up...:lmao:

The only constant across all cultures and times was a relatively thin waist -- even when plump was more "in" (due to thin being associated with death and disease), a _comparatively_ thin waist was still desired...

Someone (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=63884) did up some Lara-look-alikes between Ms. trout-lips and Catherine Zeta-Jones in the Anniversary forum:

Angelina was great in the role and would be a hard act for anyone to follow. I'm sure Karima will be equally as stunning if not more so, and bring something of her own to the part. But, (without sounding too prejudiced I hope) I would really like to see an English actress play the part, some day at least.

We British (A term I dont often use since I'm a Scotsman) kind of feel like we own Lara, almost in the same way that we own James Bond. God forbid, if the James Bond role ever went to an American actor there'd be a national outcry. No joke! Okay George Lazemby wasn't British but at least he belonged to a Commonwealth country, so we let him off just that once. Pierce Brosnan was of course an Irishman but at least the Irish Republic is still a part of the British Isles if not the United Kingdom, and he was good as 007 so we forgave him. I guess Hollywood wasn't going to let such unashamed bias happen with our Miss Croft...Ah well.

Best of luck in the role Karima. I have come to realise that I was of course gravely mistaken when I thought you had a pot belly and wider than normal hips, and have re-adjusted my monitor settings accordingly. :)
