you've just been pointing out mis-choices in words like they're a death threat

but really, i thought about it and it's barely fair to compare Lara Croft to Angelina Jolie

first off, Jolie has a lot of the basic features of Lara...but i mean, she's also pretty much American and...Lara's meant to be of "pure" British background...


second off, no offense but an anime picture is hardly a way to prove that point...technically the authors could say anything...they could draw two stick figures the exact same way and say that one's american and one's asian and we'd never know any better...
not to mention that Japanse people don't look asian in the least in anime

and yeah, i forgot...does the "pink" hair actually just look dark in that picture b/c of the way the picture is or is it really that odd red/magenta color?

So get a worse actress who's British just because she's born in Britain...good idea! Where did it say she's of pure British background?

lol @ death threats. Damn people are touchy.

idk but i mean considering it's a video game and the person was said to be of that nation, it's pretty safe to assume that she's of pure background from that nation...not many video game characters are mixes unless they're required to be for a more interesting plot

and yeah, that wasn't the best way to say it...but...idk, whatever

I'm sorry, I have to say this...

Hehe, boobies.

Yeah, Lara was British through and through, but it still doesn't detract from the fact the Angelina Jolie isn't hot... wait, no, let me try again...

Doesn't detract from the fact the Tomb Raider was a good movie? No, that's not right...

Oh, I give up... why are we arguing the point again?

Have you ever seen a redhead? It's that kind of red, but a bit redder. It doesn't look weird at all though.

So? Everyone knows that. Doesn't stop it from being worthy of "Why it is green I may never know for sure.". In fact, you didn't even notice "For sure" which was there so that you wouldn't say this, as it implied that I knew it was normal in anime, but I may never actually know why it's in anime so often. Damn subtleties, why can't I just say "I ALREDDY NO TAT ITZ GREN AN DITS NORMAL"? Oh, that doesn't make any more sense… Dammit.

Well yeah, the other three were ruled out by logic. I was just (*snicker*) "Pointing out" in a "Trying not to be annoying" (*snicker*) way that it wasn't pink.

*Dose the movment for a Rainbow, and two Silicon boobs fall out from hands*

And the Colicedus brings fake boobs, and he saw it was good.
Whoops, These were for another Ocasion. :?

....

Ok...
The actor was a Bad choice, Basicly What Im saying was Jolie got the part Only because she has a foot in Hollywood. There are Better people who I have seen in public who could do the Part better. Example Given by zip.
*whatchs Rack Swing from left to right*

No. She's from an aristocratic british family. And that's why she's very british.
Interestingly enough, she was originally going to be south american, looks like some of her visual design stuck around after they changed her origin.

How is it not a good comparison? Coli is trying to compare a living person to a video game character.

That's my point, you can do that in video games too.

Its the picture itself, she normally has this darker-pink/red hair color.

Hitman. Because they missed the point. Completely.

It makes my mind hurt just how much they managed to ruin it and yet how close they managed to get with certain elements. Its like hand-picking the least important parts out of a plot and then stringing them together with over-the-top, out-of-character gunfights.

Like the 2nd and 3rd Matrix films.

*shudder*

I think the biggest mistake Hitman made was casting Timothy Oliphant.

And they missed the point, I agree.
