Now for bonus points, imagine it’s Resident Evil 5 instead of Halo.

Dexter commanding Leonidas to fight with machine guns? I am tempted to actually watch this, but then I realize it will be monumentally stupid.

I can’t wait to the riveting, dramatic scene where Gerald Butler is going to die because the kid got his camera stuck in a corner.

So I take it Flapjacks liked Death Race?

I agree with Lister, this film looks an awful lot like Death Race – which was also turned into a video game with those stupid light up circles in the road.

Even with its mediocre quality and Sylvester Stallone, Death Race 2000 was the superior film.

Strangely enough, if they made Katamari Damacy into a movie it would be about as violent as this is.

plus C:

If they made Katamari Damacy into a movie, everyone in the theater would suffer a psychotic break and swear themselves to a new religion.

The real question: are there enough elephants on death row that little Timmy can directly control an elephant stampede like a scalpel?

Well, Gamer is from the same guys who made the Crank series, so I imagine the final movie is way more nutso than the trailer indicates. In fact, I’ve heard there’s a completely random musical number before the big final action scene.

Have you ever played MMPORGs, NeoKefka? Completely random musical scenes are pretty much standard, from gamers with way too much time on their hands and access to a wide variety of social macros….

I want to know if the game that inevitably comes out based on this movie about a game will take place wholely in this movie’s game universe or if, in fact, you will control another person who subsequently controls Gerard Butler. Will you have to go to school in this game and doodle on your notebook making sketches of your character until you get home to play the game within the game? And what if, inside that game, Gerard Butler challenged another inmate to a game of poker for a pack of smokes? How many nested games can they stack?

And will they go for the cheap joke of some inmate perpetually running in circles because the player went LD or his mom unplugged his PC because he was grounded?

There are so many questions…

Since it’s from the Crank lads, I shall see it and hopefully enjoy it.

MGK: Are you sure you have no use for a goon or goon squad? Not even to serve as a bouncer for your house to keep Flapjacks out as needed?

DistantFred: My thoughts exactly. Why spend the energy cockpunching Flapjacks when goons are “a dime a dozen”. I’d hire a dozen goons if they were offering their services for .008333 a piece.

Wait, “pretend that this is not Halo, but Gears of War instead”? You kill alien monsters in BOTH!

Wait, I’m confused. Basically Gerald Butler is being controlled like a puppet right? So why is everyone so happy to go on about him being a perfect solider, and him doing so well?

Isn’t it the puppet master who’s doing that well?

I was already planning on seeing this stupidly fun movie based on the premise itself, but when I read that the guys behind Crank are involved, I realied this was going to reach astounding levels of insane stupidity.

I look forward to watching it a couple of times until the novelty wears off, and then only when I’m drinking.

@bunnyofdoom,

Logic? Consistancy? A clearly defined backstory?

Are we watching the same trailer?

@bunnyofdoom,

Logic? Consistancy? Were you actually expecting these things?

Clearly you weren’t watching the same trailer as the rest of us.

I have two words for Gerard Butler: new agent.

Take another look at what’s going on at 2:02

I notice Flapjacks chose a particularly significant name for his exemplary Xbox player. SUBTLETY!
