Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Ho Yay: Hillary spends the better part of The Cradle of Life living in Bryce's trailer. At the end of the film, Lara meets up with the two of them as they are being groomed by a group of tribeswomen. For their wedding. They beat a hasty retreat, but one must wonder what gave the women that impression. It's possible they were being dressed up to marry women in the tribe, but that's sure not the impression you get when you watch it — and if they're running away from being married to women, doesn't that make it even more suspect?
Video Game Movies Suck: An Averted Trope. Although there's a fair bit of Critical Dissonance, (scores of 19% for the first and 24% for Cradle of Life on Rotten Tomatoes) most viewers tended to find the movies to actually be pretty good (about 60% for both among viewers on Rotten Tomatoes). If nothing else, they're considered far better than the average video game movie, and even after 13 years worth of inflation, the first film is still the highest grossing game-to-movie by far.
