    I saw the trailer on TV last night, and my first thought was.."wow..looks totally lame and stupid" (and im generally a big fan of science fiction) what are you guys seeing that looks cool?
    I guess for me, probably everything you think is lame and stupid about it is what I find cool and interesting...

    I like shoot 'em up space operas on occasion too (Warhammer novels for instance) but this touches on deeper, more socially relevant issues. As good fiction should, in my opinion. D-9 should be a good story and if the effects are good that's a plus too.

    I saw those Halo clips on You Tube, that looks like it would be pretty cool as a straight up sci-fi movie. This should be a good ultra-violence humans VS aliens type movie which would be good for the effects but I wouldn't be holding out for an actual "story".

    About the Halo movie, it continues to be revived only to die again shortly after. It's possible that instead of the Halo movie, the guy was the director of the liveaction clips that were made to promote the third game.

    Anyone else getting a Half-Life 2 vibe off of it?

    It looks pretty good from the commercial, like they're not going the usual "Oh no, mindless killing machine aliens are invading and we have to fight for our lives!" route.

    Sorry Jason, but what else comes out of not so holy Hollywood?

    I was fairly interested it in seeing the film, it seems to have a Half Life 2 vibe to it (like JRF mentioned). But I've read on several forums now that a lot of people are thinking the same thing as you, that it will be a racism/prejudice allegory. Unless it gets really amazing reviews I'll wait til it hits DVD.
