With much talk about Ready: Player One, it got me kind of interested in the sci-fi genre. And, it reminded me of Ender’s Game.
Ender’s Game was a novel written by Orson Scott Card and made into a movie feature in 2013. Much drama came across for this movie to be made, taking about 3 decades for the novelist to finally give away his creative control to Gavin Hood, the screenwriter and the eventual director of the film.
Despite not reaching much of the critical success as Ready: Player One, Ender’s Game is a note-worthy film to watch. That is, if you haven’t already. For this, we must not give way to our biases and compare it to its novel counterpart. If we do that, we will not enjoy the movie as much because let’s face it, the novel was breathtaking.
What I liked about it the most is its character-driven portrayal in the film.
