Ender's Game

Essentially adding a comment to this: Ender's Game

Finally saw the movie Ender's Game, bought the DVD at Wally World. It was awesome in it's attempt to cram a book with a lot of ideas and inner dialogue into an hour and a half sci-fi action movie. It did a fair job of it, with some decent acting of cliche tropes and good visuals/effects. If you didn't read the book when you were 13 (or as an adult) I doubt the movie makes much sense beyond the facade of imagery and action composed of compressed highlights from the book. It lacked the depth and breadth of the book.

Overall, I liked it because I was in the mood for that kind of movie, and will probably watch it again.
