Hey Squinklebooks Squad,
You’ve heard me talk about how much I love Orson Scott Card’s 1985 novel, Ender’s Game, so I’m super excited about finally seeing the movie adaptation this weekend. Check out this awesome promo shot!
Now, we’ve talked about the reasons why some people think booklovers and moviegoers alike should boycott this film. I’m not here to tell you that you have to watch this movie (lest you incur the twitchy eye of your awesome teacher). That’s completely up to you. But I’ll tell you why I’M going to see it:
It’s a great story.
And for all the controversies that surround the author’s remarks and choices, he still created a pretty fantastic world to get lost in. Ender’s Game is a story replete with action, adventure, and dilemmas. Card’s characters are full of passion, determination, tenacity, optimism, and courage. His is a tale with heart.
So, bring on the popcorn!
Ender’s Game opens in theatres on November 1.
