Please don’t suck, please don’t suck, please don’t suck.
Ender’s Game is an awesome novel. At this point, I am really hoping that the director and producers haven’t screwed up the adaption.
My nightmare is that they would do to Ender’s Game what Paul Verhoeven did to Heinlein’s Starship Troopers. Fortunately, the trailer gives me some hope that this is not the case.
Meanwhile, Andrew DeYoung has a post (“Orson Scott Card’s life is at odds with his art”) on the mechanics of separating Orson Scott Card’s political views (with which I disagree rather strongly on several points) from the content of his novels.
FWIW, despite my disagreements with Card, I don’t think a boycott of the movie is warranted, or likely to be especially effective.
