wraith808:
Are those your ratings?  It's quite interesting to see how different people rate different movies.

IainB:
I edited my comment above to reflect that the Stars are my personal ratings.

Shades:
The movie Upgrade was very entertaining indeed. Still, 5 stars (out of a maximum of of five) is in my point of view too much. 3.5 to 4 stars would be better. Story line and acting was solid, but not great. However, how the movie was shot, that was very well done. Which is why I'm hovering between 3.5 to 4 stars.

Having said the above, as a SciFi fan, you definitely should see Upgrade. It won't disappoint.

Shades:
Tomb Raider (2018) is nothing special, story-wise. Acting is solid, but not great. Yet it has decent production value. The reason why I became much more positive about Tomb Raider (2018) was that I saw the latest Tomb Raider movie with Angelina Jolie afterwards. Then you realize very quickly that Tomb Raider (2018) is a much better movie reboot than the previous garbage that Jolie starred in.

Before Tomb Raider (2018) I had never seen any of the Tomb Raider movies. Only played the first installment of the game series on PlayStation 1 (yes, I'm old) and attending a press meeting about the game, organized by the European distributor in a range of caves about 150 km from home, including a model with all the "features" of the character in the first game, dressed in similar fashion.

Tomb Raider as a game series didn't catch my fancy after playing through the first installment. And the movies did not peek an interest either. Angelina Jolie is not that good an actress or that pretty in my book.

As I have some free time as I am recovering from a motorcycle accident that busted up my left leg quite seriously, I thought to see the Tomb Raider movies. Not the best of ideas. But Tomb Raider (2018) is not nearly as bad as its previous movie.
