Tom's Games: "There's no shortage of video game movies in Hollywood today. From "Doom" and "Hitman" to the more successful "Resident Evil" and "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" series, there have been plenty of high-profile adaptations of best-selling video games. Yet more often than not, video game movies turn out to be disasters, full of excessive special effects, bad acting and cheap scripts.
Think Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo in "Super Mario Bros." Think Scott Wolf and Marc Decascos in "Double Dragon." Think of every film Uwe Boll has made ("BloodRayne," "Alone in the Dark," "Far Cry"...dear lord, please make him stop).
And there's more coming, to be sure. Classic games like "Max Payne" and "The Prince of Persia" are currently being made for the silver screen, while everything from "Gears of War" to "Kane & Lynch: Dead Men" are in the works. Yet there's one project currently that has the potential to be a true blockbuster and achieve the kind of quality that both movie and video game fans have longed for: Halo."
