“Ender’s Game” by my favourite author, Orson Scott Card, is coming to a theatre near you. As with most book-to-film adaptations, I am cautiously optimistic, hesitant, excited, and hoping for the best.
Today, the first look at Ender’s Game left my heart hammering in my ribcage.
In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them…. I destroy them.
I am ridiculously excited for this. They cast the battleschool children a little old, but that might be a necessity of having more capable actors to do justice to the complexities of the rolls.
And Ford as Graff… oh man oh man.
Can you feel my heart pounding?
