Ender's Game IMax Movie Night

This classic book--required reading at the U.S. Army Command & Staff college--has been made into a film. No idea how good it will be, but there is promise. There is an 8pm showing at Ward Cinemas; since IMax tickets are assigned, if we're going as a group (followed by beer, maybe?) we need to purchase them together. There is much to be learned about the psychology of fighting and war--at least there was in the book!

    Excellent company! It was great to see Todd, Sam, Colin, Jesse, Bianca, and even Russell! Plus was great to meet Colin's friend John. We should do more of this kinds of mixers! Sam's "costume" looked great; Jesse came ready to play with the "toy" sword; and Bianca looked Steampunk Dashing.

    wonderful costumes by Bianca, jesse, and sam.

    ender never asked rackham, "you beat them the first time; why can't you a second time?"
    if I were ender, I'd've let petra tag along after she followed me out with the oxygen tanks.

    that's not to say I didn't enjoy the movie very much

      Watched the video. Now this look descent! They could do more with animation but that may have been youtube's and my phone's fault.

    So since we are doing this on Halloween, the question is, are we going to do this in a costume or as regular people?

    1 · October 29, 2013

  • Jesse M.

    Ok, so either we meet at 7:15 to get our seats, or we meet a, couple hours earlier for dinner. I'm okay with either; whats the consensus? Also, yes, i will be in costume (i cheat by wearing what i always wear at practice :p

      I have daddy duty for some of Halloween night at least. I'll be there likely around 715 or 730.

    Yeah so based on the tickets I took a picture of we are doing this 31 October. I'm still there. Bought the ticket just now.

    October 28, 2013

  • Brian R. P.

    So Sam, the general consensus is to meet over at Ward tonight to purchase a block of tickets together. But if you and Christina have plans, we can purchase yours for you. Same goes for Russell, although both of you would certainly be invited tonight for ticket-purchase!

      Just let me know time and place. It looks the wife will be bowing out. I'll still come out and by tickets.

      October 25, 2013

  • Jesse M.

    Buying tickets tomorrow. Need a final head count on whos going please.

    October 24, 2013

    • Sam F.

      The wife and I are still planning on it.

    I have just added my +1. Christina will be joining us. For those who have not read this book, it is outstanding. I recommend reading the book first as it is an easy read so you can (hopefully) see your imagination realized on screen.

      Excellent! It will be a pleasure to meet her. If folks want, bring the book with you and we'll kick it around at dinner beer afterwards?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
