Ender's game movie vs book. Spoilers.
So I finally got around to watching the enders game movie, I've heard allot of people say it sucked before watching it so I chose to ignore them and I watched it anyways.
I really don't mind the changes made in the movie from the book.
For example having ender played as older than he was in the book makes sense, after all kids capable of acting like ender are rare. Besides IMO ender acts older than he was in the books.
I like that they didn't focus on the peter business too much. When the book was written the internet didn't exist so what he did makes sense from the books viewpoint.
As we know it doesn't work like that so not having it in makes sense. However they focused on him and valentine enough to show their differences, she cares and he's ruthless.
The giant game part was interesting while it took a few minutes I'm starting to wonder if those minutes were really hours. We didn't need to see him fail hundreds of times, three attempts was all that was needed.
The entire battle school condensing was a good choice, they covered the important points and didn't go into the detail a book needs.
Overall I liked it.
The movie was meant to appeal to a larger crowd that much is obvious, it portrayed the book good and didn't deviate far from it.
