DOOM Movie Reboot

Screenrant reports that Universal Studios is planning a new movie based on DOOM, id Software's seminal first-person shooter. The first DOOM motion picture was not very well-received, and even its star Dwayne Johnson recently threw it under the bus. But word is the studio is willing to step back into the slipgate to do battle with the video game curse, as actress Nina Bergman tweets that she's taken a part in the movie, and that it will feature a much better script.

Well, good luck to them, but somehow I suspect this movie will turn out to be borderline terrible.

Now that you mention it though, it may be time to replay the most recent Doom game. I just finished Prey, and did that pretty stealthily almost the entire way through... really feeling the urge to just chaingun/rocket launcher everything in sight in a game.

Wasn't there a hugely popular new Doom in 2016?

Doom? That is SOOOO 2016.

No there wasn't and if there was no one played it.

If DOOM 2016 wasn't popular it's because the majority of the populus are idiots. DOOM 2016 was fucking awesome. LALALALALALALALALALALALA to anyone who is dumb enough to disagree.

Furthering Cutters insight, the #1 movie right now absolutely isn't based on a 30 year old game that no one under 18 has played.

I liked the Doom movie. It was really dumb, but it was very entertaining and I really liked the first person part.

I suspect the new movie will be more like Event Horizon and have a greater emphasis on horror.

That would be great. event horizon has always been my pretend Doom prequel.

Literally this.

Doom : Let's invent teleportation. OOPS! We make a portal to hell.

Event horizon : Let's invent teleportation. OOPS! We make a portal to hell.

It was The Doom movie is quite horrible.

But i had fun watching it with friends, drinking and laughing, together with Emmerich's "Godzilla" and "Pacific Rim". Senselees, dumb action flicks, great for a movie night with beer and barbecue.
Yeah, I actually enjoy such movies sometimes. Apart of really senseless movies like Pacific Rim or Transformers.

It really wasnt that bad. I recently saw it again and I was still entertained. Had it been released last year, it would have even made that year better in terms of movies. Unbelievable how many turds they made 2017.

My main issue with the Doom movie is that it's just quite dull and boring apart from the FPS bit which was great.

We already had a great "Doom" movie. It was called Aliens.

I didn't find the Doom movie to be terrible, but it was disappointing that it wasn't about Hell and demons. It was cool they named one of the scientists after John Carmack though. And that dude named Pinky. I hope this new one will be more like the recent game somehow.
