It's one of the reasons why Halo will translate well into a film, because it's already like one.

Nothing shitty like Resident Evil, Doom, or the classic Super Mario Bros.

Halo 2 was marginally disappointing though. Lance, how was the gameplay of the Halo 3 Beta?

Let me just say this.

Halo 2 is a shitty unbalanced, wonky mess compared to Halo 3.

Take everything out of Halo 2 that didn't work, or was even mildly subpar, add in two dozen amazing new tweaks and features, and take everything that was great about Halo 2 and makes it twice as good.

Then you might have something close to the awesomeness of Halo 3.

Hehe.

All hyperbolishizznizzism* aside, Halo 3's gameplay really is a step up in practically every way from its predecessors.


*hyperbolishizznizzism: [noun] - The excessive use of hyperbole in describing something that has reached or gone beyond the level of being the Snizz-Nizz.

The scary thing is, this is how most conversations I have turn out. Linking vaguely to others as it rolls into something involving Star Wars.

Good to hear about Halo 3, especially that The Arbiter is a non-playable character. While the Arbiter-playable parts of H2 were interesting and some of the better gameplay bits of the entire game, the story's about The Master Chief.

Maybe we should have a thread just for Star Wars-- general discussions, film reviews (or re-reviews), favorite lines, pictures, etc. This would obviously include any SW game stuff.

And maybe we should have a separate thread for games as well (hint, hint).

So who else is going to see Eastern Promises tomorrow?

And another possible topic starter, is anyone familiar with the horror films of Dario Argento? I found a used copy of Suspiria (his most famous) for $5 and watched it for the first time. Crazy, crazy shit. Can anyone recommend a follow up film?

Hopefully I'll be seeing Eastern Promises this weekend, since I never got to last weekend, and since The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford isn't opening around here this week.

And LMP, The Aribter is playable in Halo 3 by the second player in co-op mode. They're also introducing two new Elite characters that would be played by the third or fourth player in co-op. But you're right. The campaign is all completely playable as the Chief.

Now that's cool for co-op.

I've bumped the Star Wars thread for you guys.

Inferno. Argento viewed it as a second part of a trilogy after Suspiria. So it would only make sense to watch that one next.

Oh how I love artistic horror.

Thanks for the tip, Screwtape. I know they rereleased Bird With the Crystal Plumage not too long ago. Know anything about that one?

It is a little different than Suspiria and far more intense. It is an erotic thriller wrapped in the classic 'in the house with a killer' formula. The added benefit is that the music is done by Ennio Morricone who scored the Leone films including Once Upon A Time In The West which was co-written by Argento. Bird is great film but perhaps too pyschological a film for someone just getting into Argento.

I will see anything Morricone scored. He's by far my favorite film composer, and Once Upon a Time in the West is prob in my Top 10 favorite films (it often alternates with Once Upon a Time in America).

I've done a little more research and also need to see Deep Red and Tenebre, apparently.

Too bad there's not a boxed set...
