Of DOOM and Movies

Why? Why in the name of good taste would you take a cool game like DOOM and attempt to make a second rate movie out of it? Some of you may think that I am jumping the gun a bit, but I seriously doubt that any movie created around the DOOM storyline is going to be a real tearjerker.

HomeLAN Fed has an interview with Doom movie scriptwriter Dave Callaham, which is currently in production over in Prague and set for a Fall 2005 release. It’s interesting that a movie based onDoom, the seminal first-person shooter that ushered in the age of network gaming, has already started generating heat in the player community. After all, its creator John Carmack has repeatedly expressed his contempt for any plotlines in his game.
