BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

You have perfectly said everything I was about to say. Then you argued against the silly people who somehow thought the acting was good. Basically, you've made all my posts for me.
Thanks!

Fact; Acting was CRAP. Script appeared CRAP. The whole scene was CRAP.

Now, using my ultra detective skills and the fact that a 'promo' clip usually shows what the producers consider to be one of the better parts of the film, I think I can safely and justifiably assume that the film will be CRAP.

And yes, I also enjoyed the first film (up until the whole cult stuff kicked in)

snip snip snip

Yup everyone thinks its a movie critic these days bleh , i'll wait for the trailer and only if the movie seems to be REAAAAALLY bad i wont see it, i enjoyed the first one a lot, i'm not a silent hill fan boy but i do have played the games and after seeing this little clip i can say without doubt it can't be as bad as any resident evil movie XD

Wait, that was supposed to be Vincent? Fuck. This. Movie.

I don't see how the nurses are different from the first movie. Could you explain, if you don't mind?

Proverbial Jon:
It's supposed to be Vincent.

Oh?
Oh!
Oh. -_-

Maybe in other scenes he at least has glasses on or something...?

But in Silent Hill 3 it was heavily implied that Vincent didn't even see the otherworld as Heather did.

Yes, I remember that. Actually, I always wondered what he saw it (and the monsters) as. Was there any more info on that which I may have missed in the game?
See, he talks about the monsters, but he never gives an indication what they look like to him (animals, humans, angels, what). Additionally, he claims he was just joking and messing with her. Huh.

(oh and the worst of all PYRAMID HEAD showing up even though neither character had any emotional problems stemming from held back aggression goddamnit)

So, what you are saying is that you are ignoring the fact that the "Silent Hill" in the first movie was the creation of Alessa, who I am sure has plenty of pent up and held-back aggression among the rest of her problems?
And the fact that several silent hill game stories have revolved around cults?
Or not to mention that there is a "fatherless baby" (though there is technically 2) in the original Silent Hill, who goes on to be in Silent Hill 3?

Not saying that the movie wasn't bad. The father character was force-fed down the directors throat because the moneybags thought that the movie wouldn't be good unless you had some main men in there too. Yet for some of its issues, I overlooked them because I felt the atmosphere was its biggest point, and in the end made me forget about some of the dumber or silly things in the movie.

And like others have said, the scene itself just feels awkward because there is zero context, zero idea of who and what and why its all really happening, and just the fact that its a scene ripped out and being tossed around like a trailer when its clearly not.

I agree with most of this, except the fact that the "Father character" is the original player character and the mother character had no real presence in the game. So technically the strong female presence was the one that was forced into the story and not the other way around.

That being said, did I love this scene? No.But your right, without context its hard to really judge what I'm seeing; and although there were elements of this that felt cheesy there were parts that I did find interesting.So I'll prob give it a shot though I'm hoping there's a non 3D version cause I'm not so huge on 3D.

When the script was finished, a studio memo was sent to Gans and Avary that voiced concerns about the lack of a male presence in the film, since the original story contained a nearly all female cast. Gans and Avary added Christopher's character (named after Gans) and subplot and the script was approved

The father in the movie isn't the main character of the game. He was added in after the script was finalized. Which is why Sean Bean's character is largely minor in importance besides some small fleshing out of the story. Studio pressure led to him being in more than just the beginning of the film.
It was stated elsewhere as well, that they felt it would work better to make the "Harry Mason" character female for the movie, because of the rather strong maternal instincts depicted.

Rumors are though that, for Revelation, Sean's character changes his name and falls into line with the games at silent hill 3, which of course was the sequel to 1.

And I wouldn't worry about the 3D for the most part. Theaters should have both versions showing, since that is at least the norm for where I live.

Funny, that was exactly my reaction when I first heard.

Yes, I remember that. Actually, I always wondered what he saw it (and the monsters) as. Was there any more info on that which I may have missed in the game?

I'm going to spoiler this simply because it might spoil the film for those who haven't played the game... if the film's anything like the game of course!

Oh and the Vincent in the film? Yeah, he's billed as being Heather's boyfriend *Cue fanboy rage*

I'm usually not into horror movies because I easily get startled over suspense if not the atmosphere of the movie. However this scene didn't scare me, in fact it made me curious if the guy was going to make it out or not. Movies based on horror stories, games, or other movies- should not make the viewer feel curious. They should creep, disturb, and scare the crap out of the viewers.

Also why are the nurses in this modeled to be sexier then the originals? I don't like staring but I noticed an 'increase' in the nurses breasts and they seem more 'polished' then griddy or scary looking. Not very excited for this film, but I shall see it anyways for it has potential. However with that "Grab the knife!" part made me chuckle. Scary movies, don't have you chuckling >_>

I Never stated that the father "in the movie" was the same father, I'm stating that the original game had Harry Mason,a male character, as the lead role not the mother.And changing Harry into a mom due to the "maternal instincts" seems cheap. A father can't have the love and drive to seek out his missing daughter?That sounds just as equally as bad as "The father character was force-fed down the directors throat because the moneybags thought that the movie wouldn't be good unless you had some main men in there too."

I keep seeing posts above regarding the nurses as being "sexy." Really? So your idea of sexy is anything with some semblance of mammary glands and legs? I don't see much about them as sexy. When I think of "sexy" it starts with a great face and goes on to other factors. Without the face--it might as well be a mannequin or a blow-up doll...oh, now I see. Some of you need to get out more.
