I jetted over to Yahoo! Movies and I noticed that everyone's favorite eyebrow, The Rock, is going to be in the next video game movie Doom.
Now there have been some pretty terrible video game movies before. I think they made Street Fighter into a movie. I'm not sure that it actually made it to the theater, but I have seen it on one of the movie channels on the satellite. The biggest problem with that game was that it was a Nintendo game and Nintendo games are generally for the kiddies.
Successful video game movies include Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and I guess the sequel along with Resident Evil and its sequel. I'll be the first to say that a lot of people probably didn't like them and I know that the second Tomb Raider wasn't that great, but to those of us who are game geeks, we were quite entertained.
I have yet to see the original Resident Evil, but I did see the sequel and I really liked it. It's not something I would watch over and over, but it was an action flick and action flicks are kind of like horror movies used to be. They were never made.
Now we had Doom coming out with The Rock and even everyone's favorite here at "the Affect", Transporter 2. I'm not going to say either of these film are going to be that great, but I'll guarantee you that I'll be entertained because if you go in not looking for wall to wall action, you are wasting your time.
Merlin, his wife, Piccu and myself action went to see The Transporter in the theatre. While Merlin and his wife didn't like it, Piccu and I were alright with it. We kind of let on that we thought it was the second coming of The Godfather, but it wasn't bad.
All I know about the Doom movie is that in the synopsis the term "armed to the teeth" was used.
That's what I like to hear.
