then went and saw the flick downtown @ the sj pavilion, and in the context of a popcorn-munching action flick, it was good. in the context of a video-game adaptation, it was the best i've seen yet.
wish i'd played doom 3 though, because from what screenshots i've seen that was what the movie was truest to. but honestly, i'm not about to lay out the four figures worth of cash it takes to get a machine to run that game decently. maybe in a year or so when moore's law has caught up with it.
only thing i thought lacking was the absence of a shotgun (my weapon of choice in-game, esp. the double-barrel from doom 2), and i wish they'd given us a little more time with the chainsaw in the FPS segment.
overall, no regrets on paying theatre price for admission & munchies. recommended, if you're in the mood for it.
