Not the first video game to be adapted for the screen and surely not the last, “Doom” might be the worst adaptation yet. Set 200 years into the future, though you wouldn’t know it by the goofy-looking helicopter, something has gone horribly wrong at the Olduvai base on Mars. Apparently there are a bunch of dead scientists and someone has to investigate. Who better than a bunch of hokey big guys playing Marines, none of whom seem to be anything like actual military? We meet Sarge (The Rock), John “Reaper” Grimm (Karl Urban) and your regular, highly stereotypical group of big, beefy guys.

The film follows ne’er-do-well Southerner Daltry Calhoun (Johnny Knoxville) who is run off by his girlfriend’s mother in rural Tennessee and swears to make amends for his boorish ways. After 14 years, Daltry has become the proud owner of a turf and sod business that specializes in supplying grass to golf courses. Though beloved in his adopted Ducktown, U.S.A., Daltry runs into trouble when his former girlfriend Mae (Elizabeth Banks) returns with their 14-year-old daughter June (Sophie Traub).

Based on the novel by Felix Salten, the original film told the story of Bambi, a young deer who was the son of the Prince of the Forest, who would one day take his place as the natural leader and protector of the forest creatures. In the original movie, Bambi’s greatest tragedy was when he lost his mother to hunters. After her death, he was raised by his father, a point that was primarily glossed over quickly in the first movie to move Bambi into the spring when he grew his horns and met Faline, the young deer whom he fell in love with and fought for. “Bambi II” deals ...

Where Superman stands for truth, justice and the American way, where Batman stands against the darkness of the urban world, where Tarzan exhibits the noble savage, Zorro strikes against the iron hand of oppression. In “The Legend of Zorro,” Alejandro de la Vega (Antonio Banderas) champions the statehood of California and takes up sword and whip against those who would destroy the United States.

title: Velvet Redux: Live MCMXCIII function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Sire/Rhino MPAA rating: NR starring: The Velvet Underground (Lou Reed, John Cale, Moe Tucker, Sterling Morrison) DVD release year: 2005 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Dan Macintosh It’s miraculous that this reunion concert happened, and that we now have DVD evidence of it. The Velvet Underground, as a working unit, was just as dysfunctional as the desperate characters in their oftentimes shocking songs. This show was captured in France because the band broke up – again – before that tour even made it to the States. It had been scheduled to open a few dates for U2, which would have been an amazing pairing, especially considering the influence Lou Reed’s music has had upon Bono. But rather than focusing on “the dream that could have been,” we should be thankful to have this fine audio/video document to remember the band by.
