DOOM    (added 2/28/06)

Wow. Doom was not the worst movie I ever seen, but there were some things about it that just bugged the hell out of me. Several of the character’s personal tics just seemed thrown in to give them depth, which was completely unnecessary as we didn’t care about those characters. Why they tried to have a love side plot was also a mystery, as it wouldn’t have fooled any female into thinking this was anything but a blood and guts and guns action movie.

Grade: D
