I think a halo movie would actualy be better than the game.

Though that's not saying much.
Innocent Bystander
oh boo

Let me enjoy my glitzy plasticy shoot-em-up.

Jesus Christ. They're ripping off Doom and doing those retarded first person perspectives.

Not that it wouldn't suck anyway, seeing as all game based movies do. And what the hell do you make a Halo movie about anyway?

(also, the abuse of terrible cgi in this clip makes Spiderman look excusable)
Meatsack Jones
Boo to you as well. Brush the Doritos from your beard and just enjoy the fine fine violence.

You can say what you want about the Halo series as a game, but it's got one of the best stories of any game I can think of... probably too much good plot to cram into a movie.

I'm no neckbeard but I somehow ended up picking up the Halo novels on a lark and they are actually really good. Trust me, that admission shocks me to make: if you told me a year ago I'd be recommending books based on a video game, I'd have torn my own skin off, then and there.

But the Halo universe has an awesome story: the big problem is most of it doesn't really come through in the games.

Seriously, Halo has an absolutely massive sci-fi mythology going on that could easily provide fertile ground for several films, especially if given a Lord of the Rings style treatment where most of the body of work is taken into consideration.

And game movies suck because for the most part they have virtually nothing in common with the source material or are based on games with little or no plot to begin with.

Seconded.
The books are wicked.
I suck for even looking at them let alone reading them.
Take from that what you will.

"Not a neckbeard"?

ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!

I love the game, I love the story and its complex mythology. I like it so much that I too picked up the books. They are just fucking godawful. Regardless of how interesting a story is, one of the requirements for writing a good book is knowing how to write well. The people who wrote the Halo books can't write a Reader's Digest survival story.

You fools. Marathon's story eclipses Halo's by tenfold.

I don't care how long my beard gets, it needed to be said. Besides, Halo's story is literally just an alternate universe take on Marathon.

Name anything from Halo and i'll name it's 'Thon equivalent. Anything.

cool

Sweet production values on that.
Xiphias
Makes you wish Neill Blomkamp had actually gotten to direct a full-length movie.
StanleyPain
Well, he IS doing the Halo film.

Xiphias
financing troubles have basically stopped all work on the film, I don't think they're even doing preproduction

Thatcher Pennywhistle
The acting is terrible. This is the Trailer Park Boys in the Halo universe, and I can't decide whether that is awesome or shit.
coprolalia
I'd pay at least fifty dollars to see that. All riding a Warthog, blasting shitty bass.

Aubrey McFate
Neil's style makes this kind of shit work really well.
Albuquerque Halsey
The Cgi aliens look just realistic enough to apper as if they are people in rubber suits. And i'm fine with that.
Camonk
I like Halo just fine.
Jeff Fries
This is about as good as the Silent Hill movie.
FABIO2
In the future, battles will be fought on rented paintball fields.
gambol
Fair play.

MerryMisanthrope
Wow, that is pretty well done, crappy video notwithstanding--I don't know, maybe the video even helps out with making the CGI look less fake.

That said, it's still just a rehashing of some videogame action, and I can't see how a feature-length story would really add very much beyond filling in the cutscenes from the game.
