Doom reviews are kinda funny..
29-10-2005, 13:45 #2
Last night my woman and I saw it. She slept throught just about all of it and on the way home told she woke up to "a big scary monster thing going booga booga because it was big and ugly"
I went in to the movie with low expectations, and even then I was disappointed. I expected there to be maybe half an hour at most of building the story, then doom characters to come flying from everywhere and in first-person blasting them away with various weapons. I was sadly dissappointed. The acting in Doom was.. alright, I didn't care as long as there was blood 'n' guts; which there were, but hardly enough, most of it wasn't spraying, but laying there.
Ah well, I've noticed that most movies as of late fall short of what they could have been and as such have been numbed to it by now.
spoiler spolier spoiler, maybe
there's a scene with a big black guy fighting whatever the monster is, I'm thinking a Death Knight, not 100% on that, but the death knight pops up out of nowhere, smacks away black guy's gun, then punches him into a hole with electrified walls, then proceed to duke it out. best scene in the movie.

I saw that Ebert and Roeper review on TV, and I laughed at all the funny comments they had about how crap this movie is.
"Doom, is what you will face when one watches this movie." :lol: GG pwned kktnx
My friends all think it's such a cool movie because there's shooting and aliens and killing, and.... Aliens....
Frankly I can already picture this as being badly lit and a bunch of flashes going off, and that makes my head hurt.

As much as I hate to admit it, I'd have to agree with Harry Knowles: as long as you go into it realizing the dialog, originality, plot, and everything else that makes a movie "good" is horrible, it can be a lot of fun. At the show I went to, there were obviously many people who had played the games, because people where hooting and hollering at the references. Any movie is better when the whole audience is having a good time, though. Major problems were that the story doesn't follow the game and that there weren't enough monster types.

Does Doom (the game) even HAVE a story that a movie could copy/follow/extend?
I always thought Doom was the direct predecessor of Serious Sam --- lots of monsters. lots of shooting, no story. Except that SS also has some fun; never heard about Doom having fun moments.

Well, as far as I know about SS... its just running backwards the whole game shooting at hoards of poorly programmed AI, who just love running into the volley of bullets your gun spews out.
And well Doom... is pretty much the same thing, but expect the running backwards part... since dim lit hallways don't leave much room for mobility.
Doom does have some nice moments, believe it or not, it acctually has some rather scary moments.... well not exactly... but ummm "shocking"! moments, where your like OMGIGIBBZEDTHOuiT3MSz... yeah you get the picture.

Though the game as a whole has alot of holes in it.
For example the demons world is poorly writen as the demons seem to only be made as bad guys with no purpose.
For example there are no "civilian" demons and they do not seem to have any kind of civilisation. They are all breed for war and fighting is all they do.
Also what is the demons motivation to enter our world? What do they want with us?
Obviously they do not need humans for food because they spent thousands of years in thier own world alone but still they feel the need to disfigure bodies and some even appear to be eating the bodies of dead humans but in all they do not seem to "want" anything. All they do is come over, bring down hell and kill people for thier leader who differs from game to game.
Also the demons seem to have access to advanced Engineering constructions as many of them have machine parts on them from birth but thats the only you see of thier engineering knowledge as thier whole world looks like its from the year 1500 with castles, gates, moats and courtyards.

They should've based the movie on the more popular aspect of Doom - multiplayer. Just have ten The Rocks running around in different coloured clothes mindlessly killing each other. Would've been better.

My only question is does the rock use IDKFA?
