I kinda liked the 05 one.

Sorry, I'll get my coat.
I like the 05 one as a generic action-horror flick, it's got a lot going for it.

As a Doom movie it's pretty bad, though.

As it's own thing, the old Doom isn't terrible.

Also, lol >> Doom: Annihilation's debut trailer is so bad, Bethesda has officially disavowed it

Maybe they'd approve if it came in a nylon bag.
Daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn.

Its sad that people are blaming the quality of the movie on the lead actress rather than that the production is just piss poor. Like her acting sucks sure but it ain't all down on her either.

Shame. Its like a universal rule that game-movies are destined to fail. I always feel like its because people who make these movies never touched the game or only had very surface leveled experience with said games. Hell, sometimes it won't always be 100% good if the series creators themselves had a hand on it such as Ubisoft's hand in Assassin's Creed. The tone and feeling was down but the script and pacing was terrible at drawing in newcomers.

Is it because that whatever movie is delivered it won't be the movie that people had in their head of it should have been?

Resident Evil is the most (in)famous example of this, I think - fans of the game hate it, but it has made so much money on the Alice premise ... and she was never a character in the game. That said, she could be now -  I've never played the games but I love the movies.

You're right in that it does seem to be a particular thing with games, though. Book adaptations seem to fare pretty well (by and large) but game adaptations are nearly always lambasted - even though the "book in your head" is always going to be different to whatever they've put on screen. (In some cases the film is only vaguely the book it came from - "The Running Man" springs to mind. I'll confess to never having read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" - but I think the book is quite different to "Blade Runner").

I don't know about the movie people playing the games, though - apparently Anderson was totally obsessed with Resident Evil and his impassioned pitch to CapCom was what got him the gig - and Cap-Com themselves seemed to be happy with what he's done (given it has five sequels).

On the other hand, I'm sure Uwe never played any of the games that he's adapted.

It's an interesting question, man - I just don't know why they're so received so poorly all the time.

Yeah....I'm good on that. It looks slightly better produced than something from SyFy.

Yeah, I quite liked the looks of that too. I'm not expecting anything amazing from this, but I'm planning on giving it a fair shot.



Never say no to Panda!

"For those of you disappointed in 2005’s DOOM and its lack of video game-inspired baddies, I think you’ll be very pleased with what’s on display here" ha ha haaaaa  :D

I do not trust those words.
I was mad that the original DOOM for not having more of a horror feel like Doom 3 (the only Doom I had played at the time).

Now that I've played all of them, and most recently DOOM 2016, anything that isn't a live action, gory action romp like DOOM 2016 will fall short.
