game to movie...I don't know about this =(
It could be a sucking issue, especially when they are going for Gears.

Well I watch movies with open minded...so if they make it at leats good, then I am happy.

I want the movie to be like Riddick but with soldier squads.

Not confident in a Gears Movie. Totally confident about Halo.

as long as it keeps me entertained, I'm fine.


Halo I expect to get back on track once Halo 3 is released. Hollywood isn't stupid, some studio or studios will bite when they see the potential profit. Or better yet, MS should just fund it themselves. Then again I don't know a lot about the business aspects of the movie business, so maybe it's easier said than done.

The story couldn't be worse than the game's story. Infact, I bet it'd be miles better.

Yea just wait till Halo 3 releases and show Fox and Universal what they ended up passing on.

I liked the gears story, but of course I'm well aware it isn't exactly lord of the rings :)

Advent Children? Um no, that would never work.

It will be pretty much be like Doom the movie sort of. The game itself was already like a cliche Hollywood blockbuster.

Doesn't matter, the movie is going to feature live actors, of course that change I suppose.

Summer 2009 is a long ways away, no point in thinking about it.
