Doom

Review by Michael Jaffe

I have mixed feelings. I love the game, and like the game the plot in the movie is worthless and pointless. In the movie, people die on mars, so an elite group of marines, each with their own personalities go and kill monsters. The film is two halves. The first half, a sneaky thriller with nary a shot to be seen, while the second half is bloody brilliance. A variety of awesome decapitations and fights that come en masse. For fans of shit exploding, the 2nd half is perfect. The first half is too good for the movie, with two much The Rock is charismatic for the first 75% of the movie, but at one point his character loses continuity and becomes good, then bad, then good until you have no idea about what the character is anymore. Karl Urban, a character baddy from such films as Chronicles of Riddick and The Bourne Supremacy, plays the emotionally torn Reaper. But really, who cares about the plot or the acting? I like the 2nd half, but a great half doesn’t make a good whole. 5/10

I love subselects / subqueries
I spent so long in MySQL without the option of subselects - that I got so used to JOINing tables as the only way of doing things.
