  • Doom

    Just got back from weatching Doom in the theaters and found it amusing to say the least. I was however dissapointed they used the "genetics turned monsters" plot. . . I would rather have had the original storyline - Demon infested Mars! Oh well. . . :(

    Good point. I saw Doom on Sunday night. I had a great seat so I enjoyed it. :D I would had liked to have seen the floating eyeball "Beholder" type creature that was in the old Doom 1 game,haha. I'm a big fan in seeing monsters in those types of movies, so I would have liked to seen a larger variety of beasties,but other than that, it was very cool.

        :lol: haha, that was a great line. I am glad that turned out the way it did. Now when I watch future "Rock" movies I'll know that he might not always be the big hero and win the day. 8)

          Yeah, I was pleased with that, and it was a good choice. Its seldom we see the big name actors play a character who dies, so its good to see that for a change. It's like Charlton Heston, never knew he'd live or die w/ films like Omega Man and Planet of the Apes, he was a suprise what wwould be is fate

            Watch out for Steven Seagel's character in the Kurt Russell movie Executive Decision then. :)

            _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
            _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
            _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

              Hi demos, that was also a surprise. Many were disappoined with Executive Decision as it seemed it was previewed as a Steven Seagal movie. He was still popular when that movie came out, it was just a few years after Under Siege. He dies a little too early though. :lol: if he had to die, it would have been better later. That was one of Hale Berry's first roles btw. haha.

                He dies! Thats a change.

                Call it payback for his awefull movies.

                I think it should have been demons on mars , not genetics.

                It would have lifted it into the original.

                I havent seen it , but i suspect i will at at some point.

                  Ya, it was the most original twist in the film! And him saying "I'm not suppose to die!" before getting dragged off was classic self-parody. :D
