Hopefully it's not another one of those movies that ruins a good book:P

If you haven't read the book you should, was really good!

I really hope it doesn't ruin the book, the preview looks promising though!

I've long come to accept that I'm a lot happier if I judge movies independent of the book they were based on.

Ender's Game is an awesome book and the trailer looks pretty exciting, but right off the bat you have to accept that the children are going to be older than they were in the book. There aren't enough child actors ages 6-8 with the acting chops of Dakota Fanning out there to be able to follow the book exactly. Plus, how much controversy would it cause to have 6- to 8-year-olds beating the crap out of each other?

Plus a lot of the book was Ender's own inward thinking about his journey. That kind of thing is hard to convey in a movie.

So I'm going to try my best to judge the movie on its own merits with an open mind and forget about the book version while watching it, hehe.

Not to mention the fact that a decent part of the plot involved two naked boys climbing through ventilation shafts. Murdering one another, oh and then an 8 year old becoming suicidal due to Committing the universes worst Atrocity yet.

But honestly, it looks pretty sweet, Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham? Harrison Ford as the gruff Graff. The easiest part for them to mess up, The battle room, looks awesome, and pretty close to what I'd imagined whilst reading the book.


I plan on watching it, and I hope it's as good an adaptation as the LOTR series
minor omissions are fine, just try to not change too much.
