Why’s It So Gosh Darn Hard to Make a Good DOOM Movie? – UnderDeveloped


Doom is a video game about a lone Marine fighting demons from Hell.

Doom: Annihilation is a movie about a group of Marines fighting zombies.

Jack Packard is me, fighting to stay awake while watching it.

Annihilation is another cheap, boring, cash grab video game adaptation that is instantly forgettable and inexcusably deaf to the source material.

This is UnderDeveloped.
