If Transformers 2 and GI Joe are any sign of the direction popular-topic movies are going, they might as well quit while they're ahead.

I don't think that Transformers was bad BECAUSE of Steven Spielberg's involvement, so I see no reason Halo doesn't have a fair chance.

Considering the only Halo I was excited about died when Microsoft bought Bungie, let them do whatever they want with the franchise. Steven Spielberg can't do a worse job than Uwe Boll will if he gets his hands on those movie rights.

I don't care WHO makes it, so long as it becomes the one game movie that doesn't suck!

The last few years have been bleak as far as movies go. I'm not sure if it's the funding, the piracy issues, or what. But, I haven't gone to a movie and been floored by the experience in a very long time.

We need more Iron Mans, and less GI Joe, Iron Man and Transformer 1 gives me hope that they CAN be done right, if the effort is put into it.

Even if it's bad, Halo fans will flock to see it just so they can complain how bad it is. I hope they do a good job making this movie, but we'll just have to wait and see.

If Spielberg does to Halo what he did to the last Indiana Jones movie we're all in for a craptastic film.

JJ Abrams would be the best director. Star Trek was incredible.

Because based on those movies you think they are ahead?

dont have high expectations, that way you wont be disappointed. judging by the way other games-movies went, the bar isnt set too high though. and yeah halo fans will still flock to see it. hope there are few cheesy moments, like 117 going 'finishing this fight' at the end of halo 2. you know, that was TOTALLY unpredictable. /sarcasm (they work ok in games but are WAYYYYYY overused in crummy films. too many to list of course)

I'll watch this movie after I finish reading Moby Dick, Heart of Darkness, Count of Monte Cristo, and War And Peace. Pride and Prejudice was in the list, but, after finishing Sense and Sensitivity, I figured out that chick novels aren't really my thing.

I think JJ Abrams, Jackson are the type of people who can make griddy SCIFI movies that don't suck... something different, tell a story etc.

Yeah, Shatner is always THE Captain Kirk. But JJ Abrams did a great job of making Star Trek, caught the spirit of the characters and then some. The ship is still a bit goofy looking... if the engines were just a bit further apart... and the inside of the ship looks like a beer factor (oh, it is) - far bigger than the outside.

Honestly, Peter Jackson is the man I want to see making the Halo movie. Hell, I wouldn't be sad if he started making ALL action movies.

Him or JJ Abrams. Spielberg is becoming one of the "bad" ones.

This is disheartening. Jackson, with the right budget, could have brought life to the entire franchise, what with all the Nylund and other back story novels out there. Spielberg will go for the CGI over plot development and poison the well. While I may watch it just to confirm my lingering doubt, like Transformers II and GI Joe, I will not waste credibility recommending it others nor money buying the DVD, I suspect.

Oh well.

I hate Spielberg. After what happened to Indiana Jones and Star Wars....I lost ALL faith in him. Indiana Jones 4 could have been GREAT. Ford had the talent if the movie was built right and for him (and his age). But no, instead they put him in with aliens, greasers adn the kid from Transformers...my god I couldn't have thought of a more stupid plot and cast if I tried. Who the F wrote that script? Shoot them in the head.
