I was looking through the movies on tonight and saw it listed, and watched a short trailer. Anyone recommend it?

According to the other thread, it sucks.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 4:33:37 PM EDT
I rented it tonight; I'll let ya know.

tag for report

I missed the other thread, and don't remember it at the movies.

Guess that should have been enough.

Wasn't *that* bad. Nothing ground breaking or earth shattering to be sure.

Toss out all the assumptions based on the video game (any of them) and just go with it.

I saw it today.

Spending 2 hours cleaning lint out of the dryer would have been more entertaining.

<---Watched it last night. It sucked.

I found it mildly entertaining - if you don't expect much you won't be disappointed.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 5:00:14 PM EDT
LoL..funny I jus saw this thread, Not more than 5 minutes ago I jus watched it on PPV. It is what it is. Ive seen a hella lot worse movies out there. But this one wasnt the greatest. It was way better than FLIGHTPLAN w/ jodi foster, now that movie sucked with horrible story line.

Rented it last night as there wasn't much interesting at the ol' mom and pop video store. Boy, did it ever SUCK!
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 5:00:26 PM EDT
Intoxication didnt even make it good.

doom without demons from hell inst doom.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 6:20:29 PM EDT
I enjoyed it. But then again, I never was into the games that much.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 6:21:34 PM EDT
Ranked right up there with Stealth.

Besides, Doom was about demons not genetic defects. They had it all wrong.

NO!
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 6:25:06 PM EDT
Very cheesey, IMHO. The final kill scene turned the screen into first-person shooter mode.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 6:52:41 PM EDT
Was OK.

My life isn't that terribly exciting. That I couldn't waste an hour and half watching it.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:46:27 PM EDT
If you have to pay to rent, it sucked.
If you can get it for free, it wasn't that bad.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:51:54 PM EDT
Sucked ass.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:55:58 PM EDT
I did not know it was physically possible for something to suck and blow at the same time.

Then I saw DOOM.

A FEW MINOR SPOILERS BELOW, IN RED:

If you totally forget the premise of the game, it's a pretty entertaining movie. There are no demons, it's merely a special gene that makes you very strong and regenerate quickly, but if you happen to have the evil gene when you are injected with the gene you turn into an imp or some such creature. It's not very badly written, though the story has been done many times before. The FPS sequence near the end (inspired by the game, of course) makes the price worth it alone. If you rent the movie hoping for awesome weapons like the plasma gun, rocket launcher or chaingun, you'll be disappointed, because they do not show up. The BFG has two or three throw-away uses.

EDITED TO ADD: In the special features, Wayne Johnson (The Rock), during training, strongly praises the military, and though I can't remember exactly what he said, he basically said that the military was much better and braver than he. I thought that was cool.

Ya'll have high standards.

It did have boobies.

Haven't seen it, especially after I heard that they changed the plot around. I figured it would be another cool premise ruined like the way hollywierd screwed up Starship Troopers

Yeah. The Rock's character was pretty bad-ass overall. He needs to do more roles like that. I mean he was kinda cool in The Rundown and Walking Tall, but not like in Doom.

My verdict is to save your money unless you run out of options for a free rental selection.
