Yeah, I haven't been able to look at her the same way since she started moving all our threads.

She could have sent a bomb to Microsoft, and I would have been okay.
But Batman Begins...

So, there's a few things to keep in mind....

For people complaining about Microsoft not making the movie, since they have ungodly tons of money, here's the reason:it wouldn't fit their MO. Microsoft doesn't EARN their money, they extort and manipulate it with others. To produce it themselves would put THEIR money at risk. By doing it this way, they get the license fee, credit if it succeeds for their tight control, someone to blame if it bombs, and whether it's a hit or a miss, they still get a percentage. There IS no losing money situation for Microsoft if they have someone else do it-only profits to be had.

BUT, if the movie is so surefire gangbusters success that there's no way it'd lose money, WHY don't they make it? Why does no studio want to make it? Why does Variety report that people involved have basically laughed off the entire concept? Clearly, something reeks if no one wants to handle it.

You can't please everyone with this movie-there's nothing original or catching, as has been pointed out, but Hollywood has thrived despite a lack of originality-so it's not so much the source that's the problem, it's marketing. It's hard to market another generic sci fi flick...that's based on a video game....especially when fans will surely be whining loudly about how "wrong" it is because it's not what THEY would have done, or "oh no, you can see Master Cheif's face". If it's not a literal %100 translation, most fans will whine. Halo made record (XBox) console sales, but....selling a million $50 games makes more profit than a million $8 tickets. The audience isn't big enough for such a huge, niche specific movie....and Peter Jackson has definitely lost some power with the King Kong fiasco.

As much as I have apathy towards Halo, I really WOULD love to see a great Halo movie. Space Marines never get old, and video game movies need their XMen equivalent.

I don't see how you're going to like TDK if you hate BB.

The Joker killing Rachel.

That scene alone would guarantee my ass in theaters at least five times.

Be pissy if you like....video game sales don't translate to box office sales. A couple million fans are gold to the gaming industry, but a couple million are nothing to the movie industry. You're what are called "gimmies"-people that will be bled regardless. As a fan, even if the movie is clearly "wrong" or horrid, you'll shell out your money.....so why should they bother with giving you what YOU want? They need to worry about people who ARENT Halo fans-THEY are what will make or break a Halo film.

Any well-done eye-popping-big-effects summer blockbuster that is actually a great film will do well in theatres. Period. Add to that a well-known property that already enjoys brand recognition and popularity amongst the general populace and it's a sure-fire recipe for success. Everything else the skeptics say is garbage.

Not liked by some people? Sure, that's just a matter of taste, even if it's still largely considered a great movie overall (even by comicbook haters) .

But to say it's not high quality, with that director and cast, and the amazing practical (non-CGI) effects, and that music score and the mind blowing action set pieces? Jesus Christ

That's just the 1up-like "Go against what everyone says, not because we think like that, but just to appear cool!" style of thinking.
You tell' em Gams.

Gammy, just because a film is well made, doesn't mean it's entertaining.

BB for the most part was well made, I just found it boring and too stretched out. It tried to fit too much in. I didn't think Bale was a particulalry great Bruce, and his growly batman voice was laughable, and I didnt give a crap about Katie homes. The things I did like were:

Alfred was awesome

The Scarecrow



I felt for the most part, it was pretty dull. It didn't have many characters I cared about, save alfred, and the coolest villain was kinda pushed to the side. I enjoyed the game much more to be honest.

It wasn't a terrible movie, just kinda drab and dull imo.
