    Actually, I thought they did a good job of getting Ender’s story of his training & battles in at just under two hours. (It wouldn’t have been practical to try and shoehorn in his siblings subplot with their online political writings.)

    I actually thought they did a good job also. (Don’t forget to like and star.)

    Oh would be interested in hearing what people who didn’t read the book thought of the movie…

    All caps aside, many people are surprised when they read Frankenstein at how different it is. Not just that the monster talks and becomes quite intelligent, but that the book opens with seemingly endless letters from an arctic explorer to his sister.

    I gave it a 9.75 / 10, with the deduction being for some technical issues concerning the computer graphics.

    Oh, and I’m the movie reviewer for a local newspaper now, so that’s what people will be seeing when my article runs tomorrow morning.

    I take it that you haven’t even come close to reading “Starship Troopers” yet?

    Glad Bob wasn’t around to see what they did to his book

    It’s my understanding that the film was originally an unrelated product titled “Bug Hunt At Outpost Nine”, and that the studio slapped the “Starship Troopers” label on the script so as to get an ST film out the door that much faster.

    Adding insult to injury, Verhoeven hated the book, such that he only made it about halfway through; not only did he not know most of what actually happened, he came away with the notion that the book supported fascism. The end result was that Verhoeven decided to rework the movie in order to fight a shadow puppet that he himself created.

    The film was originally my benchmark for 0 / 10, but I’m debating having “Bad Grandpa” go as the new benchmark.

    My wife never read the book, and she enjoyed it. She asked me to fill a few blanks. But most of that was when she stepped out during the scene when Ender quit the program.

    I thought they did a great job bringing it to the screen. Especially, being able to keep it under two hours.

    Well of course Roy has to go back and see it another 5 times. The theater has the best popcorn in town. They triple the butter on the popcorn and super size the soft drinks if you say “please”.

    It has been a real disappointment to find that the man who wrote such brilliant fiction is also a deeply homophobic mormon.

    I just cannot bring myself to go to the movie, knowing what the money will support.

    I always asked what my my younger brother thought of the Harry Potter films- and how well they conveyed the story for someone who hadn’t read the books. I’ve read them several times over, so I can’t have that viewpoint of not knowing the larger story. I think the movies still do a good job of telling the essence of the story- and they even add things not in the books. But I just like to know if there’s anything unclear in getting the tale that way only.

    I thought sure you’d be making a comment on how today’s comic was actually written well before you actually saw Ender’s Game, unless of course you saw an advance screening.
