Doom

Recommended Posts

Trailer for the Doom movie is out:

 

http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/doom.html

 

 

Looks pretty stupid to me, particularly because they are actually doing first-person camera shots from what it seems. I didn't have much hope in the first place, especially since the director, Andrzej Bartkowiak, has these movies credited to him:

 

# Cradle 2 the Grave (2003)

# Exit Wounds (2001)

# Romeo Must Die (2000)

 

The Rock is a pretty good choice for the Sarge, but seriously the movie looks fucking retarded. The graphics in Doom 3 are better then the ones in this game.

 

And 50 bucks says "The Kid" is the first one to die.

It's funny because there are all sorts of idiots defending this movie on the IMDB boards and saying that the FPS scenes are made for the hardcore Doom fans. Well I've been a hardcore Doom fan since it came out in 1993 and I think it looks like crap. Of course, I also enjoy good cinema and have a brain.

On a completely random note, I just figured out that Prodigy's "Voodoo People" from Music for the Jilted Generation (Feb 27th 1995) samples the opening riff from Nirvana's "Very Ape" on In Utero (Sept. 31, 1993). Pretty ballsy of them.

I saw this before, and laughed. Those fps scenes - haha.

 

Isn't the rule that the black dude dies first? The kid ain't black.

That's true. I know I'm going to be seeing this in the theaters. Maybe my super-low expectations will make me think it's awesome. Or by saying that I have super low expectations that will make me think it's awesome, am I actually having high expectations? Hmmmm....ParadoX (points to anyone that actually gets that capitalization reference on ParadoX).

This movie is going to suck. Those fps scenes really kill it, i mean if they were really doing this for the fans then they would not have put out a movie to begin with. Ive been playing the doom series of games ever since i got my hands on doom2 in 95. Its really sad for them to exploit something like this and not even make it decent.

But im not surprised.

No, but good guess. ParadoX the Doom-player turned Quake-player turned mini-celebrity turned developor for Ritual, who put out the first Quake add-on and the failed game, SiN. The LAN I went to in NYC, this dude had a posse following him around.
