Default Ender's Game

From what I gather, this book was pretty popular amongst Heretics. And now there's a film (with Ben Kingsley and Harrison Ford, no less!). I read it a few years back, but I remember thoroughly enjoying it. Whilst I am most certainly excited for the film, I'm hesitant as to whether it'll live up to expectations.

Thoughts?

Is this a trailer? It takes me about an hour to load up a 2 minute youtube clip so debating on spending the time

Yeh, trailer. For some reason, when I post YouTube links on Heresy, it doesn't host the video anymore, only provides a link.

I want to watch it because I've read the book quite a few times and enjoyed it a bunch, but I also don't want to watch it because Orson Scott Card is an insane fundo-nut. So... I don't think I'll buy tickets, and I hope it'll be a commercial flop, but hey, who knows, it may "somehow" end up on my computer to be watched.

Looking forward to seeing this, it looks good. Although I will have to make sure I read the book before I see it, its one of those classics that has slipped through the cracks.

One thing I'm not looking forward to though (and its already happening) is the fucking morons in my news feed on FB raging about Ben Kingsley's moko and todays habit of culturally insensitive commercialisation of Maori culture... from a book that was written in 80's? Every time this stuff crops up bleeding heart leftists and money grubbing cuzzies from some shithole town in the boonies start getting all pissy because they never got a cheque. Never hear squat from them when it's somebody else's national identity being procured.

I have mixed feelings - I loved the book to death (regardless of how fucked up the author was) but am afraid they'll annihilate it.

I don't think they'll annihilate it. If I recall correctly, Orson Scott card wrote the screenplay.
