    So I just put this post under "All Things Gay" for everyone to see it.Today my friend and I went to the threater to watch a movie.From all of them,there are THOR 2,Carrie and Ender's Game,and I let my friend pick his favourite,so he pick this lousy movie.

    This movie is so boring that with all those training of ender's plots that made you think that a huge battle at the end,but unfortunately,it finish in 3 minutes.OMG,my friend says:"that's it?".I dont know!!!The ending is so anti-climax and shitty that I don't know why this story can be made into film in the first place.Also,Harrison Ford looks like a pedo who lust on the child actor,so fucking creepy.

    Uh,I wish I would stop my friend and pick carrie instead.Further more,this is only the beginning,there are more books of this ender boy from the author Orson Scott Card,u have been warned.

    There are three more books by Orson Scott Card in which Ender is one of the main characters:

    Speaker for the Dead
    Xenocide
    Children of the Mind


    All three of these books feature Ender as an adult -- grown up and traveling the universe -- never seeming to age because of the effects of space travel and relativity.

    In the subsequent books, the attitude toward the Formic species (the Buggers) has vastly changed. Ender, using the pseudonym "Speaker for the Dead" has authored a book, The Hive Queen, written from the perspective of the Formic. It has become a cult classic, and the war has become unpopular, Ender has become hated, known as a "Xenocide", murderer of an entire species.

    I felt the movie was fairly true to the book, and I enjoyed it, as did the person I attended the movie with. He'd not read the book, and had no problems following the movie.

    Those who found Ender's Game boring will have real problems with Speaker for the Dead. It's a much more cerebral, set on a Brazilian Catholic planetary colony, and it has a heavy focus on morality and ethics. It's very good, but a difficult novel for those who prefer action.

    The author, Orson Scott Card, resides in Utah. He's traditionally Mormon and quite homophobic. Despite this, however, he's created a series that's insightful and thought provoking. Wagner's Ring Cycle stands on it's own despite Wagner's anti-Semitism and despite the admiration expressed for his work by Nazi Germany. I take a similar attitude toward Card.

    If one can get past Card's personal bigotry, his fictional works are pretty good.

    Right there with you; actually apologized to my man for making him set threw it.
    He said it wasn't that bad, but it was the first movie in a long time, I asked him if he wanted to leave, to sneak into something else--really zero gravity paint ball?

    I'm a little disappointed Harrison Ford is in this one. Is he no longer an A-List actor?

    Well, I disagree. I felt the movie did an excellent job of conveying the overall story of Ender's education and training. The special effects and overall visual artistry were awesome. I would easily recommend this movie to anyone who is into SciFi.

    I actually liked this movie. Granted, I've never read the book so I assume just like all book to movie adaptations; that the book is better.

    I think he peaked out with the Indiana Jones movies .
