Ender's Game, The Movie

Whoda thunk? Everyone.

Any sci-fi nut worth his whuffie has read Ender's Game. I read it just a couple years ago because I got sick of science fiction. No I don't want to explain why right now. But as it stands, this is a classic which is not to be missed, and soon enough it won't be, even by the less literate. This is a good thing.

There will be a movie. According to these guys, the folks who wrote the screenplay to X Men 2 will be adapting Card's work to the screen. Anyway, this is big news and all the geeks who made LOTR a smash will be back for a big hunking helping. Word is there will be videogames too.

Two key terms to keep in mind. Ansible and Battle Room. The movie hinges on its ability to make these two concepts look ultra cool as realized for the big screen. OK enough, I'm starting to sound Hollywood.

I will see the ENDER'S GAME movie, but to be honest I've soured on the book. It seemed better when I was a teenager.

Now I feel icky about the whole plot. Kids incinerating planets, and then saying "I was framed!" makes me uneasy. You can't have your xenocide and eat it, so to speak. I wrote an essay that touches upon this (see website).

I love this book. I hope they actually do make a movie of it, and a good one at that.

i think that they should make the movie Ender's Game but i think IF they do make it they should be carful making it not to leave the key points of the movie that made it what it was.I have read i twice and im now reading it for the third time in my science fiction class at my high school.Ender's game is one of the best books i've read in a long time.

Look, everyone can get as excited as they like about this project, but the fact is that I was 13 when they first started touting the script on Orson's old webpage. Let's see, that was 12 years ago, so if I'd held my breath I'd be quite dead by now. I will agree with the comment regarding the impact of the book--it gets less as the years go on. I will pick it up occasionally to have a quick read on a plane, but it and its sequals leave much to be desired.

On the other hand, The Hitchiker's Guide is definitely coming out this summer. Gotta love it.

I really think they should make the movie really long and try to include as much as posssible about the book, Try not to leave out too much.

I LOVED the book! I read it 3 times! After the first time I read the book, I said that this should be a movie. well i hope they make as good as the book

I read Ender's Game for and extra credit assignment and fell in love. and i've read "Speaker for the Dead" and "Ender's Shadow". from what i heard, it seems like they're combining Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow which is fine by me. I love Bean. i was hoping they would make some kind of movie or TV thing or even a cartoon! So when it comes out i'll be first in line at the theaters!
