Ender's Game

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVlgzbuqsn0

It's been a looooooooooong time since I read Ender's Game. I usually don't read Sci-Fi, but I heard a lot of good stuff about it.

So it's freezing outdoors, and I invite my son to go with me. He read my book. I know the premise, but there sure was a lot of stuff I had forgotten about. But as the movie moved along, some things slowly came back to me. From what I remember and understand, Ender's Game is very faithful to the book... and it shows. This is truly a gritty, realistic (for sci-fi) large scope entertainment piece. To think this was written in 1985, it translates very well to current times. I am so glad they did not hollywood this up with sappy relationships. Kill or be killed. And these are 12-13 year old kids defending our world.

You can probably tell, I was very impressed with everything about it. The pace, the editing, the storytelling, the characters all fleshed out very well. I just saw Moises Arias a couple months back in The Kings of Summer and he stood on his own in a very different and unique way. He does it again here. A 180 if you will.

I highly recommend Ender's Game. It's thinking man's sci-fi. This I would consider my Star Wars. I hope they continue with a lot more.
