Movie review: Doom

I (Tim) rented Doom for $1 at the McDonald’s Redbox on Saturday night. When you rent a movie based on a video game, you do not expect Shakespeare. However, I did expect it to be better than it was. Doom is dumb and boring. Most of the movie was spent having underdeveloped characters (Marines) wandering around in the dark with a blond woman giving pseudo-scientific answers to why everyone is turning into an evil monster. The audience of this movie wanted to see one thing: monsters being blown apart by big guns. There was one sequence where they showed the first person shooter perspective and that was super cool. Unfortunately, it was three minutes long and was about the only cool part of the movie. Otherwise, there was hardly any action in this action movie. Do not bother with Doom.

A Packer fan was enjoying himself at the game in a packed Lambeau Field, until he noticed an empty seat down in front.

He went down and asked the guy next to it if he knew whose seat it was.

The guy said, “Yes, that’s my wife’s seat. We have never missed a game since the Lombardi days, but now my wife is dead.”

The fan offered his sympathy and said it was really too bad he couldn’t find some relative to give the ticket to and enjoy the game together.

“Oh no,” the guy said, “They’re all at the funeral.”

Dude I wasn't sure of your email addy so here is a joke for you.

As you get older more and more movies appear not only dumb, but become a waste of time. There is much more fun to communicate on the computer, or on the telephone,or, heaven forbid, face to face. And if you do not feel like talking, there is always a good book, which you can put down and not waste time on after you begin, and find out what it is about.
