I'm getting sick of hearing about Halo, although it's me favorite series on the xbox.

I think it wont live up to the game and dissapoint a lot of people and it may be a flop in the box office.

Never heard of him, but i'm sure that doesn't mean he's crap. Still, only time will tell. Maybe this could really be the first good videogame movie.

No offence to the dude but hes a virtual no name to the mainstream. I was thinking MS would shell out a few extra bucks to hook a more recognised director to help endorse their film. By the way did anyone else watch that "halo-like" vid in the story cause it was anything but.

The budget for this movie is actually really high and the script is supposed to rock - so if Peter does his magic with the effects and helps out a lot ---- then maybe this new director will pull it off :)

Hope so, ...for Earths sake!
