I kind of thought the book sucked. A rip off of Starship Troopers.

Wasn't the book released years before starship troopers?
It must have been about 20 years ago when I read Enders Game.

Starship troopers was a book released in the 60s. a movie was made in 1997 with the same name. Was it a rip off? No. Some concepts were the same yes but the basics are far off. Both are great reads.

I've read about all forms of sci-fi out there and I love Heinlien but I don't like the whole insect invasion thing.

Just my taste I get.

Enders Game doesn't excite me.

Heinlein's "Starship Troopers" was published in the mid-1970s.

I've read the "Ender" books.

They start off good, then turn into boring shit.

Actually, the "Ender" series is pretty gay, and Mormon.

Know what I mean?

The first Ender book was a light read, interesting enough. After that they became hard reading. There are lots of better books out there.

As for the movie? It sounds like something I could take the kids to, and enjoy myself. Hope they make a good job of it.

Re: Harrison Ford to star in ENDERS GAME movie
Is it really so hard to do a quick fact check.

Starship Troopers is from back when Heinlein wrote what is nowadays called young adult fiction.
It was published in 1959.

Re: Harrison Ford to star in ENDERS GAME movie
I thought ENDER"S GAME was a great novel. The sequels were not all that great. But this first book in the series should make a really good movie. I probably won't go see it, but I'll buy the dvd!

There is no way Hollywood is going to he able to depict the epicness of this novel. There is simply too much depth.

I will still waste my money tho *sigh*

Re: Harrison Ford to star in ENDERS GAME movie
This movie is supposed to be a mash up of Enders Game and Enders Shadow. The books do coincide and share many of the same scenes. I am MOST looking forward to seeing Bean personally, and I will be first in line at the theater to see this one. Filming in Feb-June 2012, release date in 2013. That's the last I heard.

In truth I only saw Starship Troopers and read Ender's Game. Found it very militaristic. Just not my taste is all.


Just feels like it's been done before.
