All due respect, I think I would have wanted Ridley for this.

Maybe but i doubt Ridley would waste time on Gears of War , amidst all potential game franchises (like Halo) .

Hell i dont picture Ridley directing any game adaptation instead of its own stuff and potential sequels of all of his major hits

Only if he didn't butcher the material as he did with Robin Hood.

Either Scott, they would have probably made the movie something worth seeing.

life isn't perfect killing your self is the coward way of life. i don't respect him. end of story.

Try having brain cancer and being in constant pain, maybe you'd like to spare your family the torture of seeing you shrivel away and die slowly and painfully? Seems like it takes more guts to save the people you love from experiencing that. That might just be me though.

Dude, he's dead man. Respect the dead. RIP Tony Scott :C

It's not like he cared about your respect , and it's easy to judge when you have no real issue , health related or otherwise .

We'll care about your input on what's cowardly or not , once you regal us of tales of battling through insane pain and mentaly debilitating illness

RIp Tony Scott , and much respect for his movies .

Normally I'm inclined to agree about suicide being cowardly and disgraceful, but in this case I can kinda see where he was coming from. He didn't want to put his family through months of watching him deteriorate and in constant pain just to suffer from his death in the end anyway.

He didn't kill himself to get away from the cancer; he killed himself to make sure his family didn't see him suffer to reach the same end anyway. Also he was 68 years old. It's not like he cut his life short before his time.

So with all due respect, shut up, remove your hat, and offer the man a moment of silence.

Clearly, you don't know what suffering and agony is.

Reading these comments enlightened me on the subject.

You might not have heard but he had brain cancer and all treatments had been exhausted so he was going to die anyway.

Honestly I have more respect for him after hearing the reasons as to why he did it.

No disrespect to the man, but if your videogame source material is ALREADY SHIT, then how could the movie possibly be any better? Videogame movies always suck as it is.

I mean he was far from being the greatest filmmaker of all time, but still, Gears of War? Really?? I really think that would've tarnished his career.

R.I.P. nevertheless.

Baka-akaB2780d ago

As usual the movie would most likely got little to do with the game . At least it was Tony Scott , his version could and most likely be better in the story department .

Anyway it obviously didnt work out so ...

IWentBrokeForGaming2780d ago

back on topic with the Gears of War film...

does anyone actually expect this thing to be good?

johnsonbat2780d ago
