Doom is Doomed

Post by Mark

the rock doom

The Doom movie is going to come out soon. Its being directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak, the guy who directed the movies Twins, Speed, Dante’s Peak, The Devil’s Advocate, Lethal Weapon 4 and Thirteen Days. The problem though the movie is starring The Rock! Thats why the movie will suck, The Rock sucks. Maybe 12 year olds think he is cool but to adults he is just lame, they might as well have used Hulk Hogan instead. I am trying to think of who would be better then The Rock but sadly I can’t seem to think of anyone else. Van Diesel is more of the extreme sports guy who cares only about himself, not the team leader type. Sylvester Stallone seems like a good option with his past experiences but he’s old now, Woody Harrelson although cool in Natural Born Killers I just can’t seem him leading a group of elite men on a mission to Mars. Who else is left? Wesley Snipes? No, Clive Owen? No, Samuel L. Jackson? No, Colin Farrell? No. There really aren’t that many guys who can fit the part.

Actually, maybe Robert De Niro would fit the part. He was pretty cool in Heat oh and Val Kilmer, he would also fit the part, even Al Pacino. Denis Leary was cool in Judgment Night. Actually if you put these guys together they would make a pretty cool fucking team. That would make Doom a much better movie. Put Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, Al Pacino and Denis Leary on the same team against The Rock, Van Diesel, Collin Farel and Wesley Snipes and I think you would have one fucking amazing movie.

Here are some shots from the upcoming Doom movie. [Link]

Alone in the Theater

Post by Mark

Its amazing how trailers can make movies look so much better then they really are. After watching the trailer for the movie Alone in the Dark me and Nat really wanted to watch it. So I just checked it out on IMDB and it got a score of 2.2 out of 10. The lowest score I have seen on IMDB, even Paris Hilton’s House of Wax scored a 5. As one reviewer put it, a better title for Alone in the Dark would have been Alone in the Theater.

I Saw War of the Worlds

war of the worlds

I watched War of the Worlds yesterday at Fanar. I guess I understand now why all the mixed reviews. Overall the movie was pretty cool, not better then Batman but still pretty cool. I guess the problem people have with the movie is the story. Some people say that its non-existent but its more like the story really isn’t explained. I am not gonna go into too much details since I don’t want to spoil it for anyone but I think I personally would have preferred it if the story was explained more but I also don’t mind the fact that everyone left the movie with a different idea of what the story is.

It’s definitely worth watching though so book your tickets online via KNCC.

The Fast and the Furious 3

Post by Mark

Just yesterday I was watching the Rides episode where they built a car for drifting and I was telling Nat how cool drifting is when today I read that the new Fast and the Furious will be based on drifting. Neither Vin Diesel (who co-starred in the first film, but not the second) nor Paul Walker (who co-starred in both) will appear in the new movie which is scheduled to begin filming this fall. [Link]

On a side note, the show Top Gear is currently showing on the Discovery Channel in the States. Hope they come to Showtime also. At the moment you can watch Top Gear every Sunday at 1PM on BBC.

McDonalds, the Healthy Choice

Post by Mark

McDonalds LogoWhen the movie SuperSize Me came out everyone was like “did you watch it did you watch it?” And I would be like “yeah its bullshit’. No one believed me.

Now a new movie is coming out called “Mickey D’s and Me” that supports my view. The movie is a documentary made by a woman called Soso Whaley who went on a McDonalds diet and ended up losing weight and cholesterol points! Soso believes people are responsible for their weight gain and not the restaurants which I believe is true. Click here to read her interview.

War of the Worlds

Post by Mark

The new Steven Spielberg movie War of the Worlds comes out on Wednesday in the States. In Kuwait its coming out on Tuesday. I love it how recently movies are being released in Kuwait before they hit the theaters in the States. The movie experience has changed a lot since my highschool days in Kuwait. No people talking out loud and shouting, no laser pointers, and no waiting a year after the movie comes out in the States to get to Kuwait. Plus the fact you can order your tickets and seats from the web is really cool.

Batman Begins

Post by Mark

Just booked 2 tickets online for Batman Begins. Its supposed to be the best Batman movie yet. I tried to get tickets for the premier which was yesterday but I couldn’t find decent seats. So, I just booked the best 2 seats for a showing next week. I can’t wait.

Update: Just got the following message: “NBK Credit Card Holders only: Dial-a-movie now for Batman Begins & get a free ticket. Call 803456 or check NBK.com for more details.” So basically buy 1 ticket get the other one for free. Good deal..

Darth Vader Contacts

Post by Mark

Finally you can now get Darth Vader contact lenses! Or, if your tastes run to the Dark Side but not THAT Dark, you can get a pair of Sith contacts. I should have gotten these and worn them to the Star Wars premier.. [Link]
