Halo game set for silver screen

This is a bad idea. Movies based on video games always, without exception, suck. And before anyone says, "What about..." whatever movie you might have liked that was based on a video game, I didn't forget that one, it sucked too.

God help us if Uwe Boll is directing.

Believe it or not, I enjoyed the JC Van Damme/Raul Julia version of Street Fighter. It wasn't really good, but I definitely thought it was enjoyable. It also starred the Program's Lattimer and Kylie Minogue.

But...you're right.

Why do you have an ad for "Meet Republican Singles" on your page? (I know you don't chose them; it's rhetorical.) Who the heck's gonna click on that?!

Street Fighter...sucked.

I don't approve the ads or anything, I don't know if it's something I could do or not, but if there's no possibility of anyone clicking on it, that only decreases the chances of someone clicking on it by a tiny bit, based on how often anyone click any of them. Only another $95 worth of clicks or so and I get my first check from Google.

It might be the...

No, you're right. It'll suck.

But wait, we've got DOOM coming out soon! (Check out the trailer!) Maybe that will be the one...

Halo will suck, DOOM will suck, they will all suck. If they ever make a movie out of NES Pro Wrestling starring Starman or Excitebike, I may be willing to reserve judgement until I've at least seen them, but those are the only exceptions.

I would totally go watch an Excitebike movie.

Me too, but only if I could build my own track.
