jezon2000 Posted May 1, 2009 Report Share Posted May 1, 2009 THIS IS NOT FOR ANY KIND OF OFFICIAL METROID MOVIE: I'M JUST LOOKING FOR OPINIONS ON A "WHAT IF" SCENARIO I've always thought Metroid had more potential than most games to be a film. The problem is, I've always been afraid the people who make it would fuck it up. One problem is kind of how Metroid might actually play out on screen if a director doesn't have a proper vision for it. Usually when I listen to Relics of the Chozo or the Metroid Orchestral Concert, I get to thinking a Metroid movie done right could be the coolest shit ever. But of all the stupid shit you can get into an argument about, I got to talking to my friend about Samus' 'chanonical' backstory--where her parents are killed by Space Pirates and she is "raised by Chozo", more or less. I thought that if Metroid was ever made into a movie this backstory would need tweaking for coolness. It's cool if Samus' parents get killed by Space Pirates I guess (though it's still kind of cliche--If you've read anything from the Metroid comic and Samus' parents on K-2L, I think you might agree something like that would be the cheesiest thing in the history of cinema), but one thing I thought was ABSOLUTELY LAME is Samus being raised by Chozo. I cannot seriously imagine Samus growing up with fucking alien parents. I always thought the Chozo were cool, but that's partly because they're always statues, and they're a super-advanced alien race that humans know almost nothing about who have abandoned the galaxy and have left only derelict ruins. No doubt, the Chozo having some role in Samus' past, infusing her with DNA, etc, could be cool--but as parent/teacher figures? I am wondering what other Metroid fans think. 1) Do you think Samus being raised by Chozo is essentially a lame sci-fi rip off of the backstory for Jungle Book with aliens instead of wolves, and a Metroid movie would need a cooler/less cliche backstory? or 2) Do you think Samus Aran being raised by Chozo is awesome? I would post a poll, but... they're disabled. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
