    The original has actually aged incredibly well all things considered. I think the most you could hold against it is it being mostly based upon 3

      I rewatched it a few months ago and it was really lame. Slow, boring, repackaged RE movie

            Idk if you've played DOOM 3, but that's what happens in that game. A lot of the oddities of the movie are just from that.

          so that's it? just nostalgia?

          I still don't get why people fellate DOOM as some god game when its terrible by every fricking metric.

          Just from the top of my head:

          - no minimap or waypoint
          - no mission objective
          - no changing loadout
          - no kill streak perks
          - shitty graphics

          frick your game and frick your nostalgia. DOOM sucks ass.

            I agree completely. There is no reason to play any video game that doesn't have these. Doom is too dated and clunky for evolved modern sensibilities.

        I actually agree with you that the Doom film is slow and a bit boring, but it being a repackaged Resident Evil film is not a bad idea. The ideas the 2005 Doom film has are quite good ones. It's beautifully shot a lot of the time, with really bold and effective lighting and shadows. The Rock is actually acting in it, and he's not just an invincible good guy like he is in most of his movies.

        There is a bit of a Paul W.S. Anderson connection, too. Basically Andrzej Bartkowiak directed Romeo Must Die, and guess who Paul W.S. Anderson's pet cinematographer is? That's right, Romeo Must Die cinematographer Glen MacPherson.

        Paul W.S. Anderson also directed the Xbox Doom 3 commercial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iPzc1MCE1o

          yeah as a kid I liked the Doom movie. I liked the first person part in it. It was a genuine attempt to please fans, and even if it was far from a masterpiece even that is more than we get from most adaptions nowadays

            I think the worst consequence of Doom (2005) is that the modern Doom games have become obsessed with Hell to the point of becoming self-consumed by the idiot "lore" of Hell. Eternal takes place almost entirely in Hell. And it feels like a kneejerk response to people hating Doom 3 and the Doom film for basically being sci-fi first and foremost.

            Now I'm not saying the 2005 film removing the supernatural aspect was the right choice. But at the same time, the modern Doom games have downplayed the supernatural aspect anyway. So... is it just about aesthetics now?

            I look at the new Doom, and it is far more removed from Doom than the 2005 Doom movie was.

      It’s not very good. The camera director is obsessed with dark images where I can’t see stuff. It’s too cheap.

      The dark age doom looks like an attempt to put the popularity of medieval fantasy pc games into doom. But doom is a product of the 90s and contains cyborgs. So it’s not gonna work. It’s more like quake or Hexen. I feel like they just need Doom in the title to make money.

      That’s what the doom movie is. Sort of like a video game for parts of it. Still kind of a Resident evil 00s type movie adaptation. But not memorable story.

        Doom Annihilation was directed by Tony Giglio, who is actually a super nice guy who did his best with the budget he had. He wrote the Death Race sequels and was second unit director on Resident Evil: Afterlife and did some okay horror movies like Timber Falls.
        https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0317638/
        It's easy to bash Annihilation but they clearly had no budget and it wasn't some kind of cash grab. It was very passionate low budget schlock.

    The first was fine but I'll always remember my buddy as a kid being attached to star in the early adaptations of this, something I always thought was bullshit and "my uncle works for Nintendo" until I found out he wasn't bullshitting and it was the truth. That friend is dead now though. Bummer.

    It's about scientists fricking up a teleportation experiment by linking the teleporter to Hell.
    Why everyone keeps fricking up this very simple concept is going to be one of the great mysteries of the human race even 100 years from now.
