after seeing hollywood pump out resident evil(s), doom, silent hill, max payne, etc. i've been waiting patiently for a half-life adaptation. i mean valve must be holding the rights pretty close, the full half-life (everyone who's played the series knows by "full" i mean "not even close to full") story line is amazing (hl2 was named "the best game ever made" when it finally dropped.) i suppose the fact that there are only fan theories about what has happened in the world between black mesa and when gordon wakes up on the train heading into city 17 (years later) is a pretty big hurtle to jump when adapting the story. i'm not even sure gordon freeman would even make for a good main character of a film (the man never talks, he's just a theoretical physicist who gets shit done.) while at the same time, if i were to shell out $10 for this imaginary half-life movie i'd want it to be the original story (gordon, black mesa, crowbar, head crabs) and have... i don't know... david lynch directing or something. i remember when my brother came home one day with bootleg copy on half-life when i was like 11, i had nightmare about headcrabs for... shit, i still have nightmares about headcrabs.
top 5 things i have my brother to thank for raising me on:
1. wolfenstein 3d
3. british comedy
4. the right amount of pizza grease on the buttons of the street fighter II cabinet
5. mountain dew
anyways, these brothers purchase have taken it upon them selves to make a series of independent shorts. for something that was shot on such a low budget it looks beautiful. city 17 looks awesome, the zombies look terrifying, all the sound effects are spot on, the guards look great. i'm really impressed.
even hitler's down with hl (i feel weird agreeing with hitler on something...)
