Doom Annihilation — How a Movie Became Bullied by the Internet | Anatomy Of A Failure

by Filmento

Video game movie Doom Annihilation rose out of nowhere to become this year’s cinematic punching bag, getting dunked on by not only fans but also the owners of franchise itself. And it’s not difficult to see why — laughable CGI, cheap aesthetic, no connection to the source material, the list goes on. But even more so, perhaps the biggest reason for all the negative attention is the fact that the film doesn’t know how not to commit the most basic moviemaking sins. In today’s pg family friendly episode of Anatomy of a Failure, let’s see what movie-storytelling sins Doom Annihilation commits and how to avoid them.
