I agree. Hopefully it won't suck!

From an interview with Peter Jackson;
Question: You're still producing Halo?
Jackson: Yeah.
Question: What attracted you to Halo?
Jackson: I'm a fan of the game.
Question: But video game movies suck.
Jackson: They do.
Question: So what will be different?
Jackson: Hopefully it won't suck.
Brutally honest, you have to admire him for that. To his credit, he is picking a game that has a solid universe, a decent backstory, and a character that is rarely, if ever, alone (/wave Cortana).
Halo is more like a good action flick, there is a central character, a key problem, and a lot of explosives. Toss into a blender and hit puree. Makes you wonder which will happen first; Will the Halo movie finish up where Halo 2 left off? Will Halo 3 make it out and finally put an end to the story of Halo 2?

Or will they both require recalls for overheating and BSODs? *evil smile*
