Satisfied with a Book-to-Movie Adaptation

We saw the Ender's Game movie. A few months ago I expressed some hesitation about this story becoming a movie, but I have no large complaints! Of course there are parts of the story that get left behind, but I honestly think they did about as good as they could in about 2 hours. I missed the character development, I missed how young Ender is really supposed to be at the beginning and how long he trains, and I missed how involved his brother and sister really are with the entire plot. These points that I miss so much were not necessary in the version of the story the movie told, and therefore I am not upset.

If anything, watching the movie just made me want to read the book again, but not in frustration, but rather in renewed excitement.

And of course I loved the date night!


  1. Blaine really liked it too... he sees movies without me. :( But he said the same things about the book-to-movie plot.
    I like you.

  2. We also liked the movie. Thanks for having me read the book first-- so glad I did. By the way, this picture of you and Brett on the park bench MUST be made into a Christmas card. It is fantastic!

  3. I really wanted more Battle Room games! But still good. :)


I love to hear from you! Leave me a comment so we can get in touch.
