Yeah, yeah. I'm sure the book is better. They almost always are. But film is a much different experience, and even though I'm not familiar with the source material, I can tell they did a fantastic job with it. I intend to read the book at some point.

I read the book after I saw the movie.

They were both good.

Film was at best just okay. Was expecting a lot since I've heard nothing except high remarks from the book people. Didn't make me care much for any of the characters expect the little wannabe alpha midget, was happy when he got his. Kid who played Ender was rather bland and boring. Harrison Ford seemed to be there just for the paycheck.

Still plan on reading the book, but the film did nothing to make me want to pick it up sooner.

Ditto. It was a forgettable film. Decent visuals, but that was about all it had going for it. I never take it as a good sign when I reflexively roll my eyes while watching a movie, and it happened a good few times with this one.

Could not disagree more strongly. I think what might be mistaken as "bland" or "boring" was actually the character's unique ability to be calm and collected in stressful situations that required strategic and calculated decisions. But besides that I thought the kid did a fantastic job of showing emotion bubbling up behind his calm demeanor. There was definitely a subtle intensity there.

Everyone who has a different opinion than me is wrong and stupid.

Nah, he's just not a very good actor for his age and he came off both bland and boring throughout the entire film. Poor casting happens.

I liked the movie. It could have been... longer? More character development. I didn't read the book, but maybe I should.
