Bad puns don't kill, bad actors speaking them do. (Actor) Even in a movie with a good script, a bad actor turn it into a nightmare to watch. The Last thing the movie needs is for the actor playing cortana to do the role in the movie stiffly, and show little emotion in her voice, expecially when she is explaining to MC what Halo actually does.
Revenge (Plot) Hollywood turns the complex story into a private vendetta fantasy.
Halo is about a military operation not the Master Chief getting revenge on the Covenant for personal reasons.
*cough* Punisher *cough*
Cortana = white woman (Scenes) "White woman in trouble! She's always fallin' dooown!"
-from the song 'White Woman', by gspawn
In a holographic scene, Cortana is being pursued by "viruses" that have been "hacked" into her mainframe. Cortana, of course, runs away and trips on nothing at all- being the 'white woman' of the movie. Instead of just getting back up, she turns around and stares at the oncoming horror, screaming. The horror gets closer, and closer, and *oh no*! A bad graphical filter is applied for a frame or two before we cut to a different scene. Oh, woe is she!
Uncalled-for Music Changes (Music) I'm really worried that they will ditch all of the original, unusual and downright brilliant music from the Halo games, and replace it with popular rock/metal music.
I'm worried, for example, that we will end up watching a scene in which Master Chief readies himself for a mission,gathering weapons, slamming a magazine into his Assault Rifle and pulling back the cocking hammer and walk out of his armoury or whatever, with all shots synchronised to the background music of 'Dragula' by Rob Zombie or something. That would not at all fit in with the Halo universe that we know and love.
Cheesy One Liners (Dialogue) Lines in the film spoken by MC:
Worship THIS! (killing prophet)
Stick this up your grav lift and smoke it! (plasma grenade)
Mind if I drop in? (coming out of drop pod)
Belay that marine! (I will KILL if I hear this in the film...)
The Squad (Character Development) Imposing stereotypical characters on a squad of marines. Having 'the cool one', 'the big, dumb one', 'the mean one', 'the funny one', and 'the gets out a photo of the girl he's going to marry when he gets back to earth the scene before he's skewered on a plasma sword one.'
Never let go John... (Romance) Halo get's turned into a cheesy war romance where Master Chief is killed soon after he declares his love for a female Spartan who is accompanying him and the movie ends on a tragic soft note. Don't let this happen!
Prelude to RvB? NOW WITH FAT GUYS! (Comic Relief) Here is a scene which i just wouldnt feel right with.
The battle on Reach continues to rage, when, on accident, 4 red spartans fire on 4 blue spartans, sarge yells, "dammit grif, thats our own team!" this is followed by bickering and insults passed between both the red and blue offenders, until they just start fighting with each other.
Even though this would be a good homage to rvb, I feel it would take away from the story.
Also, Peter Jackson better not make a fat spartan, that just wouldnt look right.
my 10 cents (Scenes from Hell) 1: MC goes through an intense battle where he is fighting a new type of covenent warrior that was created by splicing the DNA of Elites and brutes with his own DNA
2: After the battle with the Hybrid covenent, MC realizes that his shield generators have broken so he returns back to his ship to have it repaired. When he arrives, he is told that a new suit was just ordered for him, and it will arrive in about 30 minutes. He then goes to the Burger King that is on the ship where he orders a large whopper value meal.
3:As he is eating with his mask and armor off, he begins looking at the scars on his arms wich instantly trigger a flashback of how he got it. He remembers holding his 2 month old baby on some planet when the covenent launched a surprise attack. His 2 month old baby was stolen by an elite after it sensed a "strange aura" aropund the child. MC tried to stop it, but the elite beat the crap out of him with a big, heavy object that somehow creates sparks upon impact with human skin.
3:MC is awakened from his day dream by UPS delivering him his new armor, which was made by under armor.
4:MC takes the package to his room and begins to renmove the armor from it's packaging and discovers a bottle of the latest scent in the Axe Deoderant line. He sprays it on him, and then Cortana instantly appears and says something sexy.
5: MC takes his new armor into the battlefield, kicks a lot of covenent butt, and sees the flood in some type of formation charging towards him while one of the flood stays 30 feet away giving the other flood orders. MC decimates them and heads towards the leader. When he gets there, he realizes that it a grown up, flood form version of his son,
Don't you mess with that music... (Music) Hopefully they won't use overplayed songs from the radio.... I am expecting some stuff whipped up by Marty himself or if not, keep the general tone and beat of both Halo games for the music in the movie.
Which armour....hmmmm (Props) So the people making the film may not know about the MC or Halo, so what's the betting he's wearing Halo 2 armour with not a hint of Halo armour, or worse, they cross the suits to;
'....get the best of both worlds, in one film.'
Scary isn't it?
Dumbing the Movie Down for the General Public (Plot) Here's to hoping they don't turn Halo's intricate storyline into Master Chief being a single minded killer who doesn't think. Peter Jackson did an excellent job balancing Lord of the Rings' story for the public and those who were fans, here's to hoping he'll do it for Halo as well.
We're innocent, WE'RE INNOCENT! (Characters) Whatever they do with the covenant, they MUST NOT make them look like repressed slaves e.g. grunts etc. Gotta make the covenant look like over zealous aliens, who would kill every human in existance given the chance!
Master chief falls in love. (Romance) Master chief is torn, he has to take out the Halo power generators but he has fallen in love with (insert either Miranda Keys, female marine, civilian, or Dr. Hasley) and she is in danger. He has a choice... either let his true love die by the hands of the Convenant or complete his mission.
I think some kind of dilema plot will be there. And I am sure PJ and company will pull it off... please don't let it be John in love!!!
