"Ender's Game" and post-movie discussion

 

"Ender's Game" - I know I have been waiting for this movie ever since I read the book in high school. And I know lots of you have too. So let's see it together and debate how well it fulfills our visions of what the film should be.

Plan to get tickets for the 7:30 IMAX showing. Please meet outside the theater by 6:45 so we can go in and sit together. Be sure to buy your tickets online in advance.

Then afterwards we will grab some food and drinks at Baby Acapulco across the street, and share our own reviews of the movie. Expect lots of geekish gushing, scathing criticisms, and just plain nit-picking.

See you there!

(PS: Yes, I know lots of people disagree with Orson Scott Card's politics. I do too. Since most of the money from a film go to the studio, the film makers, and the actors, not the book author, I want to support them for filming a good story. Please don't turn our message board into a debate forum on OSC's politics or character.)

    It wasn't the book of course, but I did like it, and I especially enjoyed the discussion after.

    The movie was a much better adaptation than I had expected. But the real fun was with 15 of us around the table at Baby A's debating the issues raised by the story. An awesome geek night out!

      Thanks Thomas and Johann. The movie time shifted a bit so I thought the meetup time may have as well.

    I just bought my ticket online. IMAX tends to sell out quickly.

      Welcome Roxy! Glad you can come. I will be waiting for you with our meetup sign out in front of the theater. See you tomorrow night!

      October 31, 2013

      Roxy, you won't be going alone. You'll be with us!

    Again, let me recommend you buy your tix in advance. That's the 7:30 IMAX screening.

    October 31, 2013

  • Johann

    Hi guys! I just checked Fandango. This time the only showing near 7:30 is the IMAX one. Sorry for the extra couple bucks of ticket expense compared to our usual, but from the look of the trailers I think this one will be worth it.

    October 25, 2013

    • Jodin

      Got my ticket!

      October 25, 2013

  • Jodin

    So looking forward to this!
