I'd still like to see a movie based in the Halo universe. I stumbled across a web series that was live action and it was pretty interesting. Would love to see that world come alive with a big budget behind it.
"The only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community, against his will, is to prevent harm to others. His own good is not sufficient warrant." --John Stuart Mill
"The rule of law is to be preferred to the rule of man. We do not permit a man to rule but the law because a man rules in his own interest, and becomes a tyrant but the function of a rule is to be the guardian of the justice and, if justice then of equality." --Aristotle

I want to see some sports Biographies.
For example :
Thanks for the sig LCSF
NFL Films does great biographies.. they are an hour each, and are called "A Football Life" on NFL Network.
They've chosen some interesting subjects.. this week is Jimmy Johnson.
IMO NFL Films does some of the most consistently excellent work in all of the film industry, and in sports they are unparallelled.
How about movies we'd like to see re-made?
Dune, for example,, such awesome potential, such a horrible movie.
Ben Hur could be really cool, even though there's nothing wrong with the Heston version.
(Trivia.. Ben Hur was written by civil war union General Lew Wallace, who commanded Grant's 3rd division at Shiloh, among other actions.)
Speaking of the Civil War, Gods and Generals is a GREAT book, and REALLY STUPID and slow dull movie.
And in the same vein, but not a remake, I'd like to see "The Killer Angels" done,, one of my favorite books, and it's a great account of the battle of Gettysburg.
"The War of the Rats" was a good book that is about the same story as "Enemy at the Gates", but told in much more detail from the perspective of the other Russian sniper teams. The duel is happening, but the story of the other snipers around it, and how the Germans tried to cope with it.. good story.
"The 13th Valley" is the best novel about the Vietnam war I ever read, very good story.
"The Terror" was a particularly cool book i readafew years ago.. it's about the HMS Terror and it's sister ship Erebus in their search for the Northwest Passage in the 1830s.. the story is true,,sort of,, the expedition is real.. the Ships became trapped in the ice for two years and were eventually abandoned..long walk across the Arctic ocean ... some cannibalism.. no survivors,, that's the real part.
The book however, centers around their disturbing of an Inuit God,, the Tuunbaq.. a monstrous polar bear spirit... and all sorts of mayhem ensues.. it's all at once ghost story-creepy, demonically scary, and tense. It's a big book, like 600 pages or so, but I thought it was a hell of a good read. It would make a good movie. Very atmospheric.
I wanna see another shark movie like Jaws. A shark or two or twenty going up and down the California coast devouring every human being in sight. Kids and adults being shred to bloody pieces.

And another thing, I hate how movies are so predictable. How about a movie where the protagonist dies within the first 30 minutes. And some character who wasn't featured prominently in the previews takes over. Or a movie where the bad guy wins. And sorry to be morbid but is there a rule that says kids can't die in movies? Like Jurassic Park....when that kid fell of the cliff in that Jeep. Totally dead, they should've found his body bleeding in the front seat. Now that would heighten the intensity!
No country for old men did that.
They spent the first thirty minutes of the movie building up the films hero then they capped his ass. Moviegoers complained
The soldiers gave three cheers as they urged their tired horses north across the uneven hills. Some of the mounts, exhausted after a week of almost continual marching, began to lag behind; others, spurred on by their enthusiastic riders, began to edge past the regiment's commander. "Boys, hold your horses," Custer cautioned; "there are plenty of them down there for us all."
The only thing good about "Smokin' Aces" was they killed Ben Affleck in the first 15 or so minutes.
I know he wasn't the main protagonist, but still, watching him get murdered at a rest stop was worth the rent.
I've wanted a real big budget live action Legend of Zelda movie ever since I was a little kid.
