Re: “Ender's Game

It amazes me that, as i read the reviews on rotten tomatoes, almost no one who is reviewing this movie has actually read the book. I'm not saying it's a good movie, but I certainly don't agree with most of the reasons these reviewers quote as to why its a bad movie. Some how I think reviewers forgot that to be able to have a voice that anyone will listen to, you have to be able to validate yourself. If you haven't read the book why should anyone give you the time of day to listen to your (obviously) false opinion. And at least 3 of them, including this guy, commented on the fact that there's no comedic relief in the movie. There is a very good reason that there is no comedic relief. And you would know that if you had READ THE BOOK. I mean, come on. No, the movie isn't good for so many reasons. But these reviewers have yet to hit the nail on the head as to why. They can't even find the board.
