I'm broken on the first film. I enjoyed it because the atmosphere of the town was great, Yamaoka did the sound design and brought back some great tracks for the score, Sean Bean was in it, and Avery tried to throw in some nods to the game while crafting something new... But I hated how they almost 'industrialized' Pyramid Head, I didn't enjoy the little girl's performance, and the story WAS weak. Gans' direction wasn't horrible, but it wasn't anything amazing either.
I'm not excited for this film at all. Originally I heard that Avery was writing and directing the second film, but that obviously fell through. I've heard decent enough things about Solomon Kane, but that doesn't do anything for me. Now that we get that cosplay shot of Heather, I'd just say
Also, this was posted on /film in the comments section, which could be part of the script or just some random fan script. If it's the real deal, the writing already looks pretty amateur.
As for hating Homecoming, 0rigins, and not fully liking Shattered Memories, there's a few reasons. First, of course, is being that Team Silent had nothing to do with them. I would give anything to have them come back together and wrap up the series. It won't be the same and will never be the same.
Homecoming pissed me off so much because it pretty much felt like the developers didn't even play the games prior; they just watched the film and did their thing. It's pretty much like the original Resident Evil games vs. 4 and 5. Sure, I liked 4, and 5 was fun, but the original games still are much more enjoyable for me.
For Shattered Memories, they could have decided to not make it a Silent Hill game, fudge a little bit of the details and go their way and have a pretty damn awesome stand-alone game, but of course they wanted to make it a Silent Hill game for sales. A new third person horror game on the Wii and PS2 at that point of the generation wouldn't have done much for sales.
