That’s right. A while back, they made a Doom movie. That’s right, the old Doom game got the “movie” treatment. I put movie in quotes, because it’s terrible. It’s horrible. It’s cliche.

And yet…

In recent times, I’ve found myself enjoying its crappiness.

It stars The Rock, Karl Urban, and Rosamund Pike. If that sounds like a good cast to you, but you aren’t familiar with the movie, you might be wondering what happened.

I’ll admit I’m a sucker for Karl Urban and am starting to become one for Rosamund Pike, despite that I always feel she’s kinda awkward. Like a deer in a headlight awkward.

But back to the movie. It’s crap. I know. A horrible blend of Resident Evil movies type horror and action. But worse. But it manages to tickle my fancy in the “I kinda like crappy movies” department.

I have the extended/unrated cut and enjoy the extra amount of cheese they’ve afforded me with it.

If you haven’t seen it, I recommend watching it with popcorn and maybe some friends for some laughs. If you have and you feel cheated by it, because you saw it in theatre and paid a lot of money hoping it would be amazing, I’m sorry. Because it isn’t. Not by a long shot.

I give it…
