    I loved reading that book and it's being made into a movie :shock:. Harrison Ford is in it also.

      I did not realize they were making a movie....Ender's Game is an amazing book, I just hope they don't screw it up.

          This is my favorite book. Am definitely excited they are making a movie!

          I"m wondering how the hell they're going to put in so much internal monologue into the film.
          Plus the trailer kind of gives away key points about the storyline /:

          As I've been told that I was a derp to not have read the book, even though I am a huge Sci Fi buff. Also I've been told that the trailer gives the ending (as @iProbie knows I hate spoilers but eh).

          It's Sci Fi and I am dedicated to watch it. But here's something weird I noticed and this is my uninformed opinion (as in I never read the book and just got it as of 1hr ago). The kids are enrolled in this schools to be trained and harness their powers to use in the fight for mankind -> This is seen in ME3 where the same ideology is being followed. Also the same thing is in Halo 4 : Forward Unto Dawn a prequel movie to Halo 4. So I can now see where these games pulled some of their inspirations.

          Bender I'm sorry but you can not call yourself a "huge Sci Fi buff" if you havn't read Ender's Game.

            Can't wait to see it! Loved this book in highschool

            I have hopes, but the book is so damn good that the movie almost has no chance to compare.

            Not my favorite book, but definitely top5 xD

            Yeah, that's my one reservation as well. Although, the fighting/training scenes have promise to be pretty cool, so maybe that'll save the movie. But it's good that they are attempting it with Ender's Game and not, oh, Xenocide or another one of his Ender books.

            Orson Scott Card is one of the best modern authors, in any genre. He is incredibly creative as well as an amazingly captivating writer. Read Children of the Mind, Xenocide, and his other Ender book (I'm blanking on the 4th's name.. also, there are 4-6 more about Bean also written by Card that are well worth reading, that are considered part of the "Enderverse")

            BTW - if you havn't started Ender's Game, and you can make yourself wait, don't read it until after you see the movie. I don't think there's any way the movie will be better, and it could be a letdown :/

            edit - uh, just reread what you wrote and seems like you've started it lol. Nevermind.

            i hate books.
          • Nov 11, 2011
            Same, but I liked Of Mice and Men and there was some other book way back in highschool about a family restaurant or something. And of course, can't forget:

              That's a pretty useful commentary on the movie. Indiana Jones with a bunch of kids. Plus Sad Kid = Sadmovie

                Now I know there's a film; thanks. Usually when you say something following a series, or preceding it's an episode name. Alternatively there's a reference in the show, which is why you'd say that in relation to Helix (what aired when you messaged me with that).

                  Helix is good as well so far.
