Hmmm, it being directed by Guillermo del Toro, one of my favorite directors. Might be pretty decent.

Unfortunately, Hollyweird has a bad way of turning good movie ideas/good games into shit spectaculary movies.

I fear Halo will end up in the same fashion, even with Bungie watching closely.

It was ok. They fucked up the entire plot though. It wasn't about hell or demons. It was about a virus or extra chromosome that mutated people. Think Resident Evil.

My biggest question is... WHY in the flying fuck does hollywood have to fuck up and change the story of a book or game so much when they translate it to the big screen. I understand minor changes, but when you change the entire freaking premise, it's not really the same thing now is it?

It reminds me of the movie Starship Troopers. They had a script and idea for a film called "Bug Hunt." When they realized the similarities between Starship Troopers, they bought the rights to the name for a movie and altered "Bug Hunt" to make it slightly resemble the ST universe, even though the entire freaking premise changed (no powered suits, no high tech intelligent bugs, no other aliens).

Granted, there's no telling how HALO will turn out yet, but I think everybody should just assume that they'll fuck it up (as usual).

Joaquin: Way too early for any trailers. The movie is scheduled for 2007 release, and they are in the preliminary stages of making this movie. You probably won't get any trailer material until the movie is finish shooting and in post-production.

Hmm. Resident Evil without Milla Jovovovich? I think I'll pass.

But will it suck harder than the game? I say yes.

Proof that there is one in every crowd.

You are the only person I've ever heard that said that Halo sucked.

Sorry, with the exception of the Resident Evil series I only like games that are half-way believable.
