I vaguely recall being taken to task in the past over an interview I did regarding one of those direct-to-DVD Halo movie releases. In short, I found the movie entertaining, but a reader responded that -- because I liked it -- I demonstrated my ignorance of the Halo property because the film had very little to do with the game. I explained that -- as a reviewer -- it isn't necessarily my responsibility to know all that is knowable about any particular franchise; rather, I'm tasked with evaluating each and every item independently because, otherwise, how are the uninitiated ever to come to Halo without someone who can see their side of things? Of course it escalated with me being called all kinds of names in the book, and such is the state of fandom these days. Treacherous, indeed.
But my blissful stupidity with all things Halo won't stop me from sharing the trailer that dropped for the TV serial this morning. It looks like this thing will be screening on Paramount+ -- behind that dreaded pay wall that's absconding Star Trek from unleashing its lessons on mankind -- so I'm unlikely to see this one in the near future. It is the kind of thing I'd be inclined to pick up on home video, and that'll be a long way off as this hasn't even streamed for subscribers yet.
Trailer is below. You folks know what to do.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
