Look Out Below... (Corny twists) An elite and the MC get into a pitched battle while fighting somewhere on Earth. After trading shots for a while the Elite charges the MC and pushes him down, after a tough scuffle the MC shoves the Elite back and manages to pick up his pistol (which just happens to have landed right next to him) He goes to take aim at the Elite. The only problem is, is that he only has 1 bullet left in the clip.
The Elite picks up on this and laughs in an alien tounge. However, the Master Chief gets an idea. With a wry smile on his face he points far above the elite and fires off a shot. For almost a minute nothing happens...the Elite laughs uncontrolably, he manages to eke out something in human like "You missed you dirty ape".
But then...far above the elite we hear a chain breaking and a slow creaking sound. Before being crushed by a massive cargo container the Elite manages to let out an audible gulp, Looney Tunes style.
Overpowered Pistol (Weapons) The makers of the movie will decide to "follow the fans" and put in a part with the Halo 1 pistol. Master Chief will say something along the lines of "EAT THIS!" and shoot one shot from the pistol. They will show it coming out of the barrel and flying into a Wraith tank, and killing the driver, and then the tank explodes in a huge explosion. Then he tries to blow off t
the trickster (A wink to us fanbois) Well the Master Chief is driving a warthog along the beach and see's an arch, Sargent Johnson (whos supposed to be with keyes)looks at him, winks and says punch it while he takes a grenade out and throws it into a pile of dead grunts. Slowmo of the grenade droping into dead grunts and the truck running over them as it explodes, and carries the warthog over the arch. They land safely while crushing the unsuspecting elites that didnt see or hear the explosion that happend twenty yards away.
The whole thing! (You're freaking me out) I think the movie is ganna rock, its ganna explian everything. There si going to be endless action/information entering the heads of who watches it. Some only understandable to the halo veterans. But the movie is ganna b a must own for any one. It will revolutionize movies how halo1 did games! the humans are ganna take sides with the elites and eta. And own the rest of the covie's. Then we will turn against the elites and crush the rest of the covies. And we will OWN the flood. Cortana will go rampant. Master chief may or may not b slian, and if he isnt he will live happily ever after with the rest of his spartans, maybe kelly, depends how she is doin! But no matter what he will kill the arbiter first. Arbiter will die! 2401 and 363 will have kids? Johnson will end up with miranda and they will have crazy green flood babies? IDK its impossible to tell whats in store....BUT ITS GANNA OWN!
The Final Countdown (Music) If they filmed the maw part, all in slow mo as a montage, like warthog avoiding explosions, flying over jumps, into access tunnels, into flood, etc. And here comes the really bad part-if they played chariots of fire in the background!!! Yech!
No Movie (You're freaking me out) If seargant Johnson doesn't have a cigar then the movies pointless If there's a movie the games and storyline might disappear plus the special effects will probably be lame the grunts,elites,brutes,etc. will probably look lame Master Chiefs costume will probably be lame they'll probably have some millionare actress be Master Chief if the movie doesn't ruin the games then it's fine but if the games get ruined then this movie better be #1 in the boxoffice or whatever they call that thing if Halo games and Halo itself doesn't get ruined then you can make all of the movies you want and in the last Halo you make Johnson or someone should die or get injured but after that last Halo please somehow come up with even more Halo games after they destroy that 7nth Halo ring make them find another Halo ring or something because I don't want Halo games to disappear Halo RULES It's the BEST series ever I want to be able to play it until I die and I want my children to play it when I get older LONG LIVE MASTER CHIEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Marine description (Characters) A marine is wearing a redish beret and when he is first seen you hear Prince in the back. He shows up in a Warthog with blood stains and calls it his little red corvette. After he survives a near death expirence or is holding another marine who is dying he say "So this is what it's like when Doves cry."
A love for all time (Romance) Master chief and some random woman (possilbly another spartan but if it was then it wouldn't have the 'sexy leading lady' thing hollywood wants as female spartans are more imposing them smoulderingly beautiful.)Fight through all the adversity of the human-covenant wars TOGETHER. Love conquers all and they hug alot. Possibly have a long dramatic kiss with cheesy music in the background every so often. Have the requisite scene where master chief is ashamed of his scars or his freakish gigantism and the woman says 'I love you just the way you are'. If this DID happen the other cliche of the love intrest dieing at one point in the movie to give him 'revenge' motivation may HAVE to happen just to spare us all the out of character lovey dovey. The halo storyline seems to have been built for this to NOT happen (master chief is probably rather frightfully unattractive and has a heavily supressed sex drive. The closest he gets is his camraderie with female spartans and I haven't seen any of them kiss or say 'i'll be there for you' yet.) Still hollywood has a way of worming in anything into a storyline. I personally don't remember the part of Doom where you had to constantly escort around your freaking sister either.
The first half of your entry is spot-on. The second half started to lose me, but it's all cool. :)
whiny hollywood music and abuse of patriotism (Music) It has ruined many an acceptable film, and while popular with the more gullible of the masses it definately has no place in a halo movie. imagine the scene, its after halo has been destroyed, the stars and stripes are unfurled behind the Master Cheif's head and then the whiny, predictable sound of the Hollywood violin orchestra kicks in while cortana gives Chief a rallying speech about 'doing the right thing' the music builds to a despicabley whingy crechendo and the audience are left with the credits and a sour taste in their mouth.
The Flood Encounter (Scenes) I was thinking about interesting things to put in a Halo Movie (if I were making it). One thing I was thinking would be that for when the Master Cheif first encounters the food, there's a period of suspence after the Cheif first finds out about them in Jenkin's helmet (think that's his name?) Anyway, I was thining that the sound of water droplets slowly dropping would kinda add suspence. And a way to re-inforce that sence of "something's wrong" in the audience for the water dropping sound would be to earlier in the film, say the Master Cheif (or anyone really, marine, civilian, actualy, I think it would be better to use the Master Cheif to hint at more of a connection to the audience, and put it at the Pillar of Autum, let's say).
Anyway, he walks through a room where the covenant a have already struck, and it's quite, all you can hear while he walks through the room, ready incase any more are left over, is a water dripping sound. The room is quite dark because many lights were shot out. The Cheif opens the a door leading to a hallway that's rather bright. When the door opens and spews bright light in the room, it illuminates the side of the wall on frame right (in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio), which is all messed up from the plasma fire recently and you can see red blood trickling down the wall in a tight, steady stream. The doorway is frame left in the back pale, and rather far away from the camera (enough space in order to make him seem small, and insignificant from the camera's perspective (he's a lone spartan on the Pillar of Autum overrun by covenant)) and the wall on frame right is close to the camera. As the Cheif walks through the door, into the hall, the camera "tilts" down (meaning it moves along a verticle axis towad the floor) but keeps focused on the door with the bright hallway through it (note, the hallway is traveling perpendicular to the door) as you see the MC's silouett cautiously walking through the doorway. Before the MC gets far enough though the doorway that we can see him fully lit up (he's still in darkness), the camera stops close to the ground, and on frame right we can see that the dripping sound is the blood trickling down the wall, and off a piece of the metal wall that's twisted out or whatever, causing the blood to drip off it into a puddle on the ground (when the camera stops traveling downard we can see the bottom tip of that metal at the top right of the frame, and the blood dripping into a pool at the bootom of the right frame.
Cut to: the camera at the end of the hallway the MC just walked into, he is pretty far down (acutaly, just use a wide angle lens). The MC is fully light in the light hallway (contrast going from a dark room to a brightly light hallway), and as the door automaticaly shuts behind him, it completely drowns out the "dripping sound" and the MC walks down the hall toward the camera, which makes him grow in size (camera is also positioned close to the ground for a low-angle shot of MC when he's close to the camera.
Now, back to the Flood encounter. When the audience hears that same "dripping" sound as the audience is waiting for the Flood to finaly show themselves, and it all becomes clear:
1) the dripping sound from the first scene represents the Flood (hence you hear it when the flood are revealed). Maybe later on in the movie, a dripping sound could just be used to induce suspence? Although that might just kill the whole idea by over-use...
2) The small MC silouette represents how the Flood nearly overcome him.
3) then as the MC walks into the light of the hallway and the suffocation of teh "dripping sound" and walks toward the camera represent how later on in the film the MC conquors over the Flood (and covenant too, maybe luring them into encountering eachother, while the lone soulder does what is needed, while they are concentrating on fighting eachother.
Of course, this is a hypothetical scene for a hypothetical Halo Movie script. I think those two shots would be subtle enough to not slap people in the face, but enough to be an interesting foreshadowing device.
This is clearly 'rejected entry' material because you've missed the whole point of the database, BUT your cleverly detailed scene saves it from vanishing into the ether! Now if only you could spell and grammar-check it, it'd be perfect! :)
Cortana's super ability (You're freaking me out) After disabling the entire Covenant defense network, Cortana searches for the "answers" to the entire plot using MSN Search, just like in The Island. Because, of course, MSN Search is stronger than Groogle.
Then she uploads a virus to destroy the Covenant battle-fleet and, by some mysterious stroke of luck, a wormhole
appears and a message from the future arrives and then...whoa, crossover time!
