The Sam Fischer. It's going to be a flop. First, it's going to be a PG-13 movie where they're gonna get their money back. Second, after Hitman, I know many people including myself who aren't going to see it unless it's receiving stellar reviews And strangers are grabbing you on the street, yelling in your face to see this movie lol. It seems like the movie makers have realized that games based on movies are amongst the worst. So, Movies based off good games must be amongst the best! That's genius equations right thar.
Loved one an two of the series. One was groundbreaking. Anybody know if the series continued to get better after 2? My brother said Blacklist went COD style with the running and the shooting and the climbing and the glayvin.
Blacklist is pretty intense, if you decide to stay stealth. I would say it went similar to how Hitman plays. You can run and gun (in areas) or stealth it up. If you are hardcore into the stealth, it can be just as good as the originals. I think the game is still a bit linear (like the originals) but new engines should fix that (not current but new additions hopefully).
As far as the actor goes for the rest of you, the actor plays a small roll honestly. If he can act well, which I think he can, then you get a good sam fisher. DEPENDING on how sam is written, so we really should look at who's directing/writing before we make major decisions. I think the previous movies, especially those named, the man should do the job well. Lets just hope they stick with the stealth aspect, although the movie itself in true fashion would be a bit dry. So expect some hollywood jazz and a bit of flash, even then it should come out nice.
You guys act if you know nothing about movies. Which looking back (not really) doesn't surprise me. This is a tech forum where games play a huge role, I expect many "to be" movie buffs but not really be huge "movie buffs" (if you know what I'm talkin bout). For those that say "SIIIIIIIIGH" or some other crap, what's your favorite movie? Once you answer that, I can almost guarantee to predict how well you know the outcome.
I'm a huge movie buff, scene, setting, how well they put scenes together (technique) as well as story, acting, scripting, all come into play for me. I've seen more movies than most on here could probably give me credit for.
My favorite movie? It's a toss between Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas, Requiem for a Dream, or the original Bram Stokers Dracula taken to film. I chose those because in all the directing is superb, the acting (I know claymation is one) is wonderful, as well as the story falls into place (a mix of directing, acting, and writing). I know Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind is pretty up there with Carrey, as well as Trainspotting for heroin movies and also two other cult classics. Those two would be The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Pulp Fiction.
I chose my favorites because they are more recent (visual) and are pretty solid all around. I also give a shout to Clockwork Orange, while it has some tastes I find a bit off it is utterly amazing as a film. It incorporates part of humanity that many of us try to ignore. So wait for trailers, sneak peaks, but ultimately wait for the movie to come out.
