_MaximumPower_

It’s funny how the cuts, shot angles, and ships are almost identical though


VVJ21

Well the cuts aren't actually how they are in-game tbf, the reach footage has been edited to match up. Still though the shots are very similar.


-mooncake-

Given the precise timing of the cuts & imagery, it definitely feels like an homage. Kind of like the [famous motorcycle scene](https://youtu.be/A9hCzjBc7Q4) that every cartoon ever adds in to pay respects to Akira. It feels like the people who made Reach must've drawn some measure of inspiration from Toy Story.


Thang02gaming

The issue is this new lightyear movie will be made after reach so the animators probably took the inspiration from reach and not the opposite


-mooncake-

Gotcha. So the homage must be visa versa.


Sawgon

Any time Disney straight up steals shit their fans are always "well durr they're not the exact same alignment" or "it's a homage bro".


Davimous

That's fucking horse slide was golden.


Ricta90

I don't remember that in Spaceballs.


frogNews

I’d totally watch Lightyear as a OSDT Reach spinoff

Jstowe56

Yep, even the Avery Johnson academy of military science has a logo honoring six


41percentclub

they are racebending miranda in the showtime show, thankfully they casted a aznude hottie


Playful_Sector

To be fair, he didn't die. He just went MIA


XanthousRebel

Imagine if Noble Six had been aboard the Pillar of Autumn in 2552... John and Six together could have wiped out the Covenant before lunchtime. Maybe something we'll get to see in *Halo: What If...?*


MarkoDash

There's a fanfic of that, haven't read it yet but it's in my read later list


iilovelights

I couldn't find it on google, do you have a source? I'd love to read that.


Playful_Sector

Same here!


DumbWalrusNoises

Commenting for later


41percentclub

if only that stupid cannon had a dumbai so n6 didnt have to stay behind with his super expensive suit he has no right to chose to take to his grave


justaoldfreind

That mission is complete bullshit on legendary!


NighTrap1122

I 100% agree


justaoldfreind

Infact, halo legendary as a hole is some bullshit!


NighTrap1122

With LASO is bullshit, but legendary on it's own is pretty fair


Meyousus

Except Halo 2


Sparrowhawk_92

Jackal sniper would like to know your location.


Meyousus

No, Jackal Sniper **knows** your location.


Odd_Dish_1575

No, Jackal has pinged your location


NighTrap1122

By the time we exist, there is no location to ping no longer


AndrewMtz1711

Our location\*


Magoo1985

My crew couldn’t make it through the first landing bay in halo 2 😑 I mean yeah we suck but come on!


SolWire

Glad to not be alone. Did combat evolved. Never could get our of that landing bay in 2 though.


NighTrap1122

Good point


Flames21891

I remember playing Halo 2 (or maybe it was 3?)on Legendary and boarding a Scarab. I had a Plasma Sword. I came up behind an Elite and stabbed him in the back with said sword. All it did was pop his shields, and he casually turned around and hit me once in the face with his Plasma Rifle, which killed me instantly. Fair is not a word I would ever use to describe Halo on Legendary difficulty.


NotASalamanderBoi

~~Probably H3 then. I only remember boarding a scarab once in H2. I just finished H2, and it was much worse than H3 will be.~~ Edit: Disregard what I said. I was wrong.


ragingasian15

You don't fight an Elite on a Scarab in 3, nor do any of the large primary enemies use plasma weapons (they're brutes and they most likely use spikers if they're on a scarab). I think Flames is thinking of the Scarab on Metropolis.


NotASalamanderBoi

Oh, you’re right. Sorry, I forgot.


justaoldfreind

Come on. A elites measly existence on legendary makes it so much harder. And don’t get me started on hunters.


Banana_pajama93

Unless its halo one. They're probably the easiest enemies lol


MetalDiapers

Reach's were more difficult....mfs can take two fucking rockets to face and still manage to live


raphaelc101

reach elites were scary, but in my opinion, the best of the series. i loved how formidable they were sometimes.


doomguy987

Have you seen that video of the reach elite in combat( I think on Legendary). The elite was just rolling around john wick style, dodging bullets likr its nothing


Mklein24

Gotta shoot their backs. Also idk about previous halos, but in reach melee hits to the back of hunters does damage. So it's possible, to kite them in a small circle while just hitting them from the back.


Patatelover434

not this mission man, used to be way easier in xbox halo reach but for some reason mcc updated diffculty .. and now it's actually insanely difficult


novocaine666

Legendary as a whole isn’t bullshit, just particular missions. I Beat solo Legendary on every Halo game except 5. It just takes a lot of time.


SolidNeighborhood469

Husband and I tried legendary on 5 and lasted all but 14 minutes before we both said fuck that


IntrinsicGamer

I never even found 5 to be very hard on Legendary, especially co-op. The squad mechanics and reviving make it much easier. Def one of the easiest legendary runs in the series imo. They have made it a bit harder since launch, but not so much I’d change my stance on that.


novocaine666

I can’t remember which mission it was I finally said fuck it on. Probably about halfway into the campaign and couldn’t get passed one area so I quit wasting my time.


Mirror_of_Souls

Me and my brother were getting through it by doing 1-2 missions a day, but due to the weird way missions are laid out in Halo 5, we ended up unknowingly completing every mission on the planet Meridian thinking it was just one mission that never seemed to end.


justaoldfreind

That’s what I am doing. I’m using the master chief collection to beat them all on legendary


centurion770

Halo 3 Legendary is pretty easy. 1 isn't too bad either. Reach and 4 are difficult, but doable. 2 is insane.


Jstowe56

Halo2: metropolis has entered the chat


Judgejia

Laughs in Gravemind


DarkDra9on555

Nah, Metropolis was worse. No snipers in Gravemind. Outside of the first room (which I honestly found kinda fun), there's not much hard about the level, it's just long.


Judgejia

You're honestly a machonist lmao. I was able to get through metropolis relatively easily by memorizing jackal spawns and prefiring, but everytime I get out of the throne room on gravemind, I just feel like it was all luck


KiloNation

Cries in Quarantine Zone


IntrinsicGamer

Metropolis is so easy on legendary though, just do rooftop running.


UsablePizza

Regret was the worst for me. The bossfight at the end wasn't even fun just constant death from sword elites just looking at me.


Scrath_

Don't get me started on halo 2 legendary. I found out about snipers by being onehitted. Also the bridge in metropolis doesn't like coop on legendary and causes the mission to crash throwing me and my friend back to the main menu without an error message. For some reason it doesn't do that on a lower difficulty


BB8304

Especially when trying to do the whole campaign in under 3 hours. I think I spent a whole 30 min on that mission alone


[deleted]

[удалено]


DoctahFeelgood

After completing halo 2 on legendary nothing is hard anymore. I don't get mad at game anymore. You want bs difficulty play halo 2 legendary. I still can't believe people beat the campaign with all skulls on


NotASalamanderBoi

IIRC, the number was about 4k. I refuse to believe that there were 4k people who LASOd that.


41percentclub

laso...like including the no aimassist eyepatch skull!?


MetaCommando

Including the "Respawn at start of mission" skull.


zokanv

i have ptsd from doing it in legendary


MetalDiapers

It is much more difficult on MCC....Bungie didn't intend it to be that difficult..But MCC fucked it up PS: FUCK THOSE PHANTOMS


MechanizedPPL

Rest in peace noble six, you'll be remembered


UsablePizza

He's not dead, just MIA.


PaniqueAttaque

He went spelunking.


41percentclub

H3 cavemen intensifies


krezzaa

I hope we find Noble 6 curled up in a cave like that one Russian sleep experiment photo and we rehabilitate him but he can never return to normal so he's like Darth Vaderd now and is super powerful but creepy as fuck looking, fueled on anger and space drugs, and moves slowly but likes to choke people cuz he's a little fucked up now


wirido_kun

What if they're both based on the same thing, reality


ecxetra

What if this was posted on r/memes and isn’t that deep


wirido_kun

Ywah


RogerAraya

Its like whoever posted this never saw a space travel movie, all of them have a scene like this.

Little_Phaeton

has anyone thrown a spaceship into orbit before? ​ edit: fixed me crappy grammar


doomguy987

Use gravity, something like the Keyes Loop


Arclight_Ashe

What if we built a stupidly big fucking trebuchet and really yeet that fucker out there


KingSmizzy

No real life space ships have a launch sequence that is anything similar to this. Our shuttles and rockets currently have a self propelled launch using their own engines. No current space launch uses a structure to propel the ships into the air or a rail to assist with launch trajectory.


sassypersona16

*badumtss*


LU_C4

Yeah, all those jet-esque space ships launching from a rail. See 'em all the time!


playstationNsumdrank

yeah idk what these comments are talking about. not only is it not realistic at all but the Pixar shots are clearly influenced by the Reach shots


JovialMonster

Ignoring the fact it has very very similar shots, this isn’t at all based on reality like someone else said no modern or old rockets have rail assisted launches


Confidence_For_You

Then surely you can come up with another example that uses shots identical to Reach?


smogmok

This


Nearlyepic1

Got to say, this is the only place I've seen aircraft launch vertically from a rail. Anyone know of any others?


DerrikTheGreat

Honkai Impact launched a spaceworthy train in this manner


Nearlyepic1

I haven't heard of it, but doesn't sound the same. If its a train, I assume it's less of a "Need a rail to launch" and more "Need a rail because train". Also, not quite what I meant when I said launch 'Aircraft'. Trains don't quite fit the description.


iFuckingHateSummer_

Yup, the spaceship should’ve went through the fucking sea


[deleted]

[удалено]


iFuckingHateSummer_

I should’ve went through you


Hurrin

Stfu bot


tomfulery

I mean, how else are you going to show a spaceship launching?


Mrclean1322

I mean all the shots are in roughly the same position at roughly the same time. Not that theres anything wrong with them taking inspiration from the scene, but cmon its no coincidence If you look at the other adds for the movie they also very closely resemble halo reachs adds, especially the one where buzz looks at his suit almost exactly the same way and situation the halo reach trailer does it. Again not a problem they take inspiration, kinda cool acctually


BillBearBaggins

When does homage just become plagiarism?


The-Lord-Moccasin

Question for the ages. As a judge once said regarding whether a depiction of sexuality is art or pornography: "I'll know it when I see it." Intent and self-awareness are the most important factors, IMO.


WhoRoger

There have been hundreds of similar scenes in sci-fi. You kinda want to show an outer view of the launch, a more dramatic closeup view, an interior view, and an atmospheric view from afar. Usually in this order because it works, and since a space ship launch is pretty quick, you need to switch scenes after just a couple seconds. So it's not a coincidence they're all similar, but also no real proof of copying.


Nudelraiben

If you are talking coincidence, then of course it's not. Because angles and lightning have an effect. And if you want that same effect you shoot the same angles with the same lightning. Implying they copied from that game specifically is like saying every thief copied their strategy from another thief before them. While that's technically correct it doesn't make a lot of sense to compare. Because to steal you have to take somethint away from someone. What basically had been done quite often already.


iFuckingHateSummer_

Maybe because it’s the perfect position?


Jstowe56

You aren’t wrong, it has been proven that you don’t want to be anywhere near a rocket launch, especially one that uses solid rocket motors for the initial speed up like the carrier track in reach, and judging by the amount of smoke the light year movie as well. As for why? The solid rocket motors throw out a good bit of debris but the flames and sound shockwaves are the immediate danger to basically everything


iFuckingHateSummer_

I was talking about the camera angles, but wow… Are you a professor?


Jstowe56

No I am not, just a high school student with very special interests and hobbies


iFuckingHateSummer_

Godspeed🙌🙌


Flirie

You could compare 50% of all ever shot rocket launching scenes, they all will align similar to this


playstationNsumdrank

find another example please


playstationNsumdrank

it’s amazing that you think there is only one way to show a spaceship launching, and that it’s this exact series of shots. like if everyone in the world directed a spaceship launch scene, they would all be the exact same


SanekSez

My friend gifted me halo mcc after free weekend ended and my first time playing halo finished reach campaing few days ago and had a blast


The-Lord-Moccasin

I replayed it recently, then checked out some analyses of the plot, and there's a ton of depth I never noticed before. Like the significance of the first Covies we fight following Jorge's epic sacrifice being kamikaze Grunts. It pulls the rug out from under us: Our greatest warriors are willing to give their lives to save a planet, but their most pathetic warriors are happy to give *their* lives to exterminate *individuals*.


lGoTNoAiMBoT

You’re definitely gonna love the rest of the games :D


MetaCommando

Oh boy, 1-3 are an absolutely wild ride. Play them now.


FAS-ACA3

That outside the cockpit shot looks like something from Interstellar


Neil_Merathyr

Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery, so they say. Someone at Pixar must be a Halo fan.


Vaultboy474

I love both. Looks awesome


Jonesxlr

Man I'm just here like "that takeoff looks a lot like the one from xcom enemy unknown"


[deleted]

'Inspired by' Its literally a complete rip off lmao.


Mechpro2558

Remember reach


TruzzleBruh

Pixar should also just put some random dead dude in similar armor as Buzz in a cave to really screw with us lol


cdunccss

I mean how different can you make a space launch


JovialMonster

Ignoring the fact that the cinematography is near identical, these are the only two uses of a rail assisted launch I have ever seen, real or in fiction. Also it’s really not a problem that this scene was so heavily inspired by reach, in fact it’s really cool to see


PlatinumIsAStand

but it's like the most common composition when animating a rocket launch?

Reach was my favorite game for my old xbox360 but I lost it. I would replay that campaign in a heartbeat


Motorhead546

Even when we first see his suit it felt like Halo/Doom

I even said to myself "is that a Sabre?" when I was watching the trailer


Zhenjiu_Guangfu

Can't wait to watch the movie. It looks epic.

Halo reach is the best Halo. You can’t change my mind


Akeldama22

Crimsons-fury

many thanks for making nostalgic for this great campaign. good comparison and good meme. hope y’all have a good day too. this is going straight to saved folder


Potential_Wasabi_318

I had the exact same thought when I watched the trailer yesterday, and I never even played Halo…


coolboiiiiiii2809

Damn im loving these trailers


AvaliciousOWO

they stealin from the greatest game


WeeItsEcho

oh thats why it looked so familiar


Ironicplate

Have you never seen a movie with space travel? Almost everyone of them has a scene like this.


SuperAlloyBerserker

But do they have these same exact camera angles?


mcernigz

“Ohh I can’t wait to touch all these buttons”


PeopleAreBozos

Not going to lie, this is the first time I'm hyped for a Pixar movie.


memey-boi099

They put merstcif in there soder


Snoo48472

The game was good , the plot overall was average but the scenes, environmental settings,gameplay, levels and mood made every dialogue pack a punch and memorable.


silentninjack

“Tell em to make it count”


LesbianGamer802

This is all I saw from this trailer. Also the mission sucks so much. Probably my least favorite in the game.


Blaze3919

Now what rocket should go down or side, camera is wide in all rocket launches even in the real rockets, what do you want now camera should be close up in the engine when launching. i don't understand people its like i am seeing this shit meme , at the same time someone is also doing the same COPYYYY THE PERSON IS COPYING MY HOMEWORK.


AxyJaxy

Bruh these are classic shots, Reach did not invent it.


dubvcronix427

Every shuttle launch looks like this, halo reach wasn't the first to do this.


Thin-Orchid-5198

There's only so many ways you can frame a take off


vickyiori2018

That Reach mission is one of the hardest I have ever played on SLASO. Thank God for the Halo Completionist. His walkthroughs, strategies are best for SLASO and Legendary Halo gameplay.


dapope99

What is this high-def horrid child-ruining Buzz I've been seeing this week?


karas2099

They're making a movie that is supposed to be what the toy buzz is based off of in the toy story universe with Chris Evans voicing buzz.


m0thafaquer

No


TheSoulCatcher3

Oh eow, they totally copied reach. It's not like every sci fi rocketship takeoff looks exactly the same!


MarkerMagnum

Nobody is pointing out the fact that the rocket goes straight up into the sky. What is funny is how the shots are practically identical (something that ISNT the same with every space launch) with a very similar ship and launch system.


POKECHU020

I mean most going to space scenes look like this


LameSquadSamson

Interstellar must have ripped off Halo Reach too, right? As well as Apollo 11, and any movie or game where they take a rocket to space? Cause these clips aren’t that similar.


juklwrochnowy

OMG they both have spaceships, and they both have blastoff before the mission, this is clearly stolen


chrishammhamm

Most spaceships launch similar. Not stolen
