    Neil Blomkamp, director of District 9, was originally slated to be the director of a Halo movie with Peter Jackson producing. This is actually a commercial, and two internet shorts cut together to make an absolutely amazing short film that takes place in the Halo universe.

    Saving Private Ryan was a little bit (and sorry for using this term) of a game-changer as far as war-reality went in film. I mention that because this compiled series of shorts is the Saving Private Ryan of video game trailers/commercials.

    Nothing got us more pumped to buy Halo 3 than this awesome freaking commercial. Sure, the new ones are great, but they're a little THX1138... this is the Halo universe in realistic, raw form, like we'd never seen before. As a collection, this is the best live-action commercial for a video game ever made.
