  DOOM Movie Preview Screening - First Impressions! - Hollywood News

The DOOM picture got previewed at San Francisco Metreon yesterday. GameSpot was there on the spot, both before and after the screening to collect impressions from the seemingly numbered and heterogeneous audience. The article reporting about the event includes some of them and as you'll see, expectations and opinions about DOOM are quite contrasting!

When asked what she thought on her way out of the theater, E.T. said she'd gotten what she came for ("Action. Entertainment. Loud.") and was generally pleased with the film. A random audience member overhearing the question interjected with an emphatic one-word review: "Terrible!"

David Chau was similarly unhappy with the film. "I didn't like it," he said. "I went in expecting nothing, expecting the worst. And I guess I pretty much got the worst." In particular, Chau took issue with the film's dialogue ("corny") and the much-ballyhooed part of the movie filmed to mimic the first-person perspective of the Doom games.

"That was horrible," Chau said. "It made me sick. I knew that was going to happen, but it still made me sick."

There were enthusiastic points of view in favor of the movie as well. Howard Kwong, a self-described "huge gamer," said he expected the worst going in to the movie, but came out really pleased, especially with the first-person section of the film.

"I was one of the people yelling if you heard me," Kwong admits. "Because that was Doom. And that's really the only time you get that real Doom feel. All the other times, you're looking from on top of people. That wasn't Doom."

    Aww you ****, that first person part was badass, i could'nt stop watching it, and that guy probably thought it was bad becuase it said he went in expecting the worse and you know how it is going to school. You go in expecting the worse, and you get the worse, but when you go in expecting the best, you get the best. So that guy went in there feeling sick about the movie, paid no attentiion to the cool things and stayed concentrated on the bad things, that's why it was terrible *****. As for me, i going to see it this weekend to end all this suspicion and critisism on it.

    And I strongly believe that Doom movie is pure crap. A person I know who has been playing doom very much said that the movie is total bull*****.

    I saw the movie. Opening night! Ok, in the terms of any Oscar winning performance, this movie sucked, but in the terms OF JUST COMPLETELY KICKING ASS, this movie excels!! Go see it, not for a good film, but just to see some good assbeatings!

    It doesn't matter if you go in thinking a certain way, it's still going to be the same no matter what. That analogy about going to school feeling sick about it and getting that and then going with a good attitude and getting that makes no sense. I have found that going in with the best attitude most of the time leads to the worst situation ever. I think this movie is just another glam hollywood masterpiece. All action, all effects, no substance, completely opposite of what us Doom fans wanted in the first place.
    BAH! It's no use talking about it, everyone has their own opinion.
