Hmm... yeah, that is an interesting point. I think it might have a lot to do with the fact that most of the directors that they get to direct videogame adaptations are mediocre at best. Paul WS Anderson, Uwe Boll 'o' Shit.. (they're the only two that come to mind right away). Perhaps the writers are of similar quality. I actually rather like the Silent Hill movie, but not because it's an incredibly well-told narrative, but because I think the atmosphere, visuals, and performances are really strong. I dunno... I like it. *shrug*


Silent Hill makes me chuckle, just because it was shot in my hometown of Brantford. You want an abandoned ghost town setting, go someplace that won Worst Downtown Core In Canada for a few straight years (yes, actual award. We also won awards for best parks & gardens, located in our suburbs.) My friend & I play spot the location watching it, grinning and laughing. The waterfall scene early on? It's called The Devil's Punchbowl (great name), just outside Hamilton. Anyway...I liked Pyramid Head. You knew serious s*** was going to happen when he came on screen.

So - so Jerry Bruckheimer figures out how to make a theme park ride into a movie, but goes straight to a videogame (Prince Of Persia) and largely whiffs the ball. Did all he need was Johnny Depp mugging on screen as the crazy uncle type?

Is that what it would take to make Halo? Have Johnny Depp camping it up in there? God knows worldwide audiences can't seem to get enough of him chewing the scenery.

Yeah, seriously. Tim Burton has discovered that people would probably pay to go see Johnny Depp pick his nose. He's not the only interesting/quirky actor out there. Brad Pitt is capable of such goofiness. Willem Dafoe. Sam Rockwell... Sacha Baron Cohen.. (okay, so there's not necessarily a whole lot of other people who can do it, heh, but you get the idea.)

The more important question is whether Halo: The Movie: The Game will be released.

A new book coming out puts more of the blame on Microsoft and their demands, actually.

Nice find, rider. I never have been a fan of the game, so I'm probably not going to cry too hard that it'll never get a film adaptation, but that footage was kind of cool. It did have a similar feel to District 9.

My friend said the Halo books are really good.. was the movie going to follow the books or the game?
