Default The Doom movie - The Marine has a name...

...and a decent actor to play him.

You know, there wasn't a chance in any hell, anywhere, that my wife would have gone to see the Doom movie with me. I wouldn't have seen it if they'd cast The Rock.

Now, however, it's a different story. If the script comes off half decent, the movie'll probably be pretty good. Karl Urban's a talented guy.

as long as it's directed as a horror movie, and not some crappy shoot em up action (like resident evil, house of the dead, etc) then i'll consider watching it. so far, hollywood has a really bad record of converting video games into good movies.

Yeah, I was real disappointed in Wing Commander. I hope this one manages to not suck ass.

Did you not see Chronicles of Riddick? Karl Urban's acting was horrific! To top it off, he's really weird looking and he talks funny too, like something's jammed up his ass. Actually, his acting sucked in Lord of the Rings too, now that I think about it. And sorry, the "forced to deal with corporation responsible for parents' deaths" spin on "marine fights invading demons from hell on Mars" doesn't really do anything for me, either. This movie sounds like it'll be as good as House of the Dead, at best. Geez, why won't people stop making video game movies?!

And the director you mentioned?! Cradle 2 the Grave? Come on!! It's got DMX as one of the lead characters! Andrzej Bartkowiak directed ONE good movie, The Devil's Advocate, and that was only good because of good writing. Things are looking bleak indeed for the Doom movie. Oh well, my expectation's weren't at all high anyway.

sigh, i hate how the studio execs automatically choose the worst director, writer and actor. WTF!

Woah, man - calm down. I do occassionlly go see bad movies on purpose - the whole 'watching a trainwreck' thing. I probably should have clarified; I meant "pretty good" in the sense that I'd spend $7, be amused for 2 hours and have done. It isn't going to be worth owning when it hits DVD. I didn't mention the director, and I haven't seen Chronicles of Riddick - I don't like Vin Diesel. I will grant you that the only thing I've seen Karl Urban in was LOTR, but I thought he did a decent job of portraying Eomer. IMO, he's a damn sight better at acting than Dwayne Johnson ever will be.

I'll go see it I think. Only $7 an 2 hours of my life, how bad can it be? I can always leave early if it completely sucks.

Speaking of Wing Commander the damn game movies had better actors and acting overall than the theatrical movie - Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell, John Rhys-Davies, and Tom Wilson were better than those dorks in the movie.
