On the one hand; the idea of Microsoft getting into the movie business makes me nervous:
On the other hand; I have no love of the Hollywood studio system.
On someone else’s hand; the idea of a Halo movie makes me feel like picking up a sniper rifle and running riot, in a good way.

  1. Don’t worry about Microsoft getting into the movie business. It’ll be just like Microsoft’s ventures into print journalism with Slate and Sidewalk.com: they’ll walk in without a clue as to what the hell they’re doing, and promptly drive themselves into the ground by declaring that “we do business differently”. Of course, that phrase means “we won’t listen to anyone who tells us that we’re wasting money or time on building a story by database, because we’re so smart and you’re so stupid.” I give it a year before someone pulls the plug: six months if the company stock goes into the toilet after this notice hits the general news.

  2. An Alex Garland script is a good starting point.

  3. Maybe they’ll find a way to leverage their Windows OS’s to force everyone to watch their movie.
    Their could be a code at the end of the credits that’ll prevent all applications from stealing focus.
    I’d pay $9.50 for that.
