MC Movie-How Should It Start
« on: April 28, 2006, 04:25:03 AM »
Ignoring reality and how they are going to do the movie, if they were doing one truer to the MC universe, how would you like to see it start?

Ex.  I'd like it to start as the RPG does, with a narrator explaining the basics with scenes depicting the exodus, the four corps, the coming of the darkness, etc.  The scenes should not be more than 2-5 seconds, enough to get the picture (kind of like the start of Serenity) but not drag down the moment.

They should  include the fluff about how the guy gave up his seat on the spaceship to stay with his love and it turned out that she had lied and was onboard. I've always assumed she was his alternate, found out that if he stayed she could go and used love to get his seat on the bus. Classic.

It's one of my favourite fluff stories.

they oughta skip the fluff narration entirely and tell the story of the first invasion of the Dark legion, with a suitable leadup.  in an Ideal world, it'd be rather inclusive, kinda like the eighteen hour Dune movie.
