Screenwriter: Halo is "Our Generation's Star Wars"

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Screenwriter: Halo is "Our Generation's Star Wars"

The young (I cannot say 'our') generations Star Wars are episodes I, II and III. They are crap.


I think he chose poor wording.

LOL don't make me laugh...


Halo is nowhere near the international phenomena known as Star Wars...not even close. One is a videogame series which spawned off some novels whereas the other is a premiere movie franchise which also sold several bestseller novels (hard to believe but ok) and actually have their own videogame franchise.


If Halo is to be compared to any movie franchise, it would have to be Rambo. Not known for its story, but hella entertaining.

I am a Pakistani.....my name is Dan....how hard is that? (Don't ask about the 101...apparantely there are more of me out there....)

Our generations Star Wars movies were crap, so its nothing special if halo is the new "star wars".

yes but those prequels r pure garbage 

and im pretty sure he was talking about the original star wars not prequels 

 

no they werent, the issue is they didnt match the first 3. The problem is CGI effects vs old tech. If the old movies were remade using the new CGI effects everything would be fit perfectly well.

Episode one is probably the worst star wars anything ever conceived. Everything was terrible. Then the second movie just had shitty directing, dialogue and CGI, which was a big step up from shitty everything. Then the third movie only had some bad acting holding it back, so it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't on par with the classics.

Personally, I think the CGI effects from the prequels look more dated and bad than the classic effects from the (non-special edition) original trillogy; and I believe that one of the primary reasons why most actors seem so wooden in big-budget blockbusters is because the over-use of CGI effects gives them nothing to focus on and interact with.

With that said, the special effects are not the only things that don't match up between the two series ...

The original movies have an underlying mysteriousness about all of the characters which allows plot twists like Darth Vader being Luke’s father, and Luke and Leia being twins to be a surprise.

Several of the exchanges between characters no longer make any sense, consider the following exchange between Luke and Leia

Princess Leia Organa: Luke, what's wrong?
Luke Skywalker:
Leia, do you remember your mother? Your real mother?
Princess Leia Organa:
Just a little bit. She died when I was very young.
Luke Skywalker: What do you remember?
Princess Leia Organa: Just images, really. Feelings.
Luke Skywalker: Tell me.
Princess Leia Organa:
She was very beautiful. Kind, but sad. Why are you asking me all this?
Luke Skywalker:
I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her.

There is talk in episode 1 about how there will only ever be a master and an aprentice within the sith, yet in episode 5 and 6 the emperor and Darth Vader seem to be looking to recruit Luke Skywalker with no indication that the Emperor or Darth Vader has to be replaced. At the same time, the nature of how someone is turned to the dark side of the force seems to be very different between the prequels and the original movies; in the prequels Anakin is slowly seduced to the darkside and makes (moronic) comments like "From my perspective the Jedi are evil" while in episode 6 Luke Skywalker is forceably put into the position where he embraces the dark side to kill Darth Vader or The Emperor, or he dies.

...

If it was only a couple of things that could be excused, but in every one of the prequels you could list dozens of differences in the style and substance of the characters and the universe as a whole which do not match up well. About the only thing done well in all of the prequels which does match up adequately with the original movies is Ewen Mcgregor's portrail of Obi Wan Kenobi
