    I just got back from seeing the new Doom movie, and I liked it a lot. One thing I noticed, is that the rock used proper trigger control all the times I way paying attention to where his hand was. I can't say that about everyone else in the movie though. It looked like they had some sort of 1911 pistol as well, they didn't show it long enough to identify for sure. Over all a good movie if you like futuristic firearms :D

    I have not seen the movie, but I played the game! I have read the "Rock" is a gun owner, hunter and has plenty of practice with real weapons.

    On the plus side for the movie. Muzzle control was ok. Trigger discipline was ok. It was rated R like it should have been...........that's about it.

    Has nothing to do with the game really. Wasn't really creepy at all and generally wasn't very good at all. Now it had it's fun moments but all in all I was very dissappointed.

    Towards the end there are some internal conflicts that are pretty good and the Rock is fun and I thought Karl Urban did a pretty good job but that is about it.

    One thing though. I am by no means a prude and I am known to cuss like a sailer but the Rock simply cannot pull off the F-Bomb. It just doesn't suit him. He is imposing enough without it and it just made me chuckle everytime he dropped the F word.

    Make this one a matinee or a rental if you want to go see it.

    Be advised. If you go with the hopes of seeing the story being told during the Doom game, you will be dissapointed and upset.

    Otherwise, its a decent movie in its own right.

    I saw two types of pistols in this movie. At least two Marines carry USPs, and The Rock carries a Desert Eagle.

    Yep desert eagle is for sure, but I saw a black gun that looked to be steel, I don't think it was a USP, more like a 1911, but I could be wrong.

    Fear is good, I have it. I like a lot about it, but doom 3 still has a creepier atmosphere (then again I haven't played a lot of fear). I can say that I would love to have the rifle in fear, that turns people into just skeletons. If that was real, it would certainly be a one hit stop :what:. Now to just make it pocket sized :D

    HB, I am a hardcore gaming, and can promise you, your average video game has a better story than most movies. If you do not believe me, play something like Area 51 (or kill.switch, kill.switch is friggen awesome). Some games let you create your own story, Fallout 1 and 2 are perfect examples (and immensely fun). Castle Wolfenstien also had a nice story to it. (Or, if you like strategy a lot, go into the Starcraft and Warcraft series from Blizzard.)

    Personally, any of the previously mentioned would make a killer movie. Just to add to the list, Max Payne (1 and 2), MechWarrior (any, but especially 2 and 3, all xpaks included), MechCommander, would all make movies worth seeing. Yes, I am a gamer.

    Fact is, the best and most creative minds aren't in Leftyworld, err Hollywood anymore.

    ....story....?
    Let me all remind you that Doom was originally a very simple first person shooter "back in the day."
    The story was little more than "Demons on Mars want to get to Earth, kill them!"
    =p
    (Yea, I know about Doom 3, which is actually around the 5th game...pretty cool in itself.)

    Anyone else ever notice that little Junior, who's been diagnosed by his frenzied teacher with ADHD, has absolutely no problem concentrating on video games for hours? Or in trying to get a skateboard to do some sort of strange flippie? For hours?

    Just a random observation...

    I shall openly admit that I was (am?) a DOOM and DOOM II fanatic, and have spent many, many hours playing the game. The DOOM movie isn't exactly Masterpiece Theater--it's pure eye candy that will probably only be appreciated by die-hard DOOM aficionados and fanatics.

    Apparently, there's a segment towards the end of the movie that's done in the classic FPS perspective. A friend who's also a DOOM fanatic suggested that we each sneak a keyboard and mouse into the cinema, and when the movie gets to the FPS segment, we break them out and make like we're playing DOOM on a huge screen, and have someone take a picture of us.

    Think we'll get thrown out of the cinema for doing that? :D

    Remember your WASD! Only hellbound schoolgirl marines use the keypad layout!

    But yeah, DOOM looks like a pretty stupid movie, but DOOM III actually has a fairly good plot, for what it is. At least they tried, and the delivery of it (I think) was great. It's kind of crazy to be receiving the backstory in those little chunks through eMails and Audio Logs and stuff.

    "And he.. uh.. backed into the particle beam. It was - heh - it was not a pretty sight, as the beam took off most of the back of his head and..." ~Audio Log found in the Elemental Phase Deconstructor control room.

    I haven't seen the movie, and probably won't, but I did hear an audio clip of an interview with The Rock. He was saying how much he enjoyed shooting the BFG and how much fun he had during the weapons training prior to the film.

    The Rock is a very articulate and educated man, which is surprising to me considering his chosen line of work.:D
