Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

Rhymes with 'kaboom'.

I don't know why the dork hordes were so upset about the big-screen treatment of iconic shoot-em-up Doom; this flick really isn't any worse than Ghosts of Mars or any other sci-fi/action schlock. In fact, I actually liked the "twist" (and I use the term verrryyy loosely) and C & I both thought the first-person sequence was pretty well done.

There were a bunch of nods to the original game, nice touchstones for nostalgic gamers, and on the whole it was a fun watch. If you want a low-rent Aliens to numb your brain for an hour, this is it.
