Movie Lovers: New, Classic, and Foreign Films Meetup Message Board › Meetup details changed: Adventure/Sci Fi Based on Great Novel, Ender's Game
I've changed date and time for this Meetup. For more details, see the full listing:
When: Saturday, November 9, 2013 4:00 PM
Date and time change: 11/9 Saturday; hoping for 4:00-ish
Based on the phenomenally popular, excellent novel by Orson Scott Card, "Ender's Game" tells the story of the experiences of 'an unusually gifted boy who is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion 70 years after a horrific alien invasion.'
****Cast includes Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley, Oscar nominee Viola Davis; Asa Butterfield stars as Ender.*****
"An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, “Ender’s Game” frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth’s fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven’t even hit puberty yet."
"At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario — that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours — while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure."-Variety
Food Jonathan's Grille after the movie if people are interested.
Where: Regal Cinemas Green Hills Stadium 16
