DOOM the game was originally going to be called "It's Green and It's Pissed" untill John Carmack saw the movie 'The Color of Money'

"There is a scene in 'The Color of Money' where Tom Cruise shows up at a pool hall with a custom pool cue in a case. 'What do you have in there?' asks someone. 'Doom.' replied Cruise with a cocky grin. That, and the resulting carnage, was how I viewed us springing the game on the industry."
