Not much to say about this one. I suppose I could go into a rant about how Orson Scott Card is a complete piece of homophobic human garbage that deserves to be throttled with spiked dongs for the rest of eternity. Or I could do my usual “this is an average movie” thing. Or I could compare this to Starship Troopers. I wish this movie had made me mad or something. I hate giving average reviews to completely middle-of-the-road movies. The ones that really shine are the glowing reviews and the lowest of the low.
Alright. Ender’s Game. Little kid named Ender is chosen by – oh my God, Orson Scott Card is trash. Just total trash. Hold on, let me find some quotes from this asshole.
· “The dark secret of homosexual society — the one that dares not speak its name — is how many homosexuals first entered into that world through a disturbing seduction or rape or molestation or abuse, and how many of them yearn to get out of the homosexual community and live normally.”
· “There is a myth that homosexuals are ‘born that way,’ and we are pounded with this idea so thoroughly that many people think that somebody, somewhere, must have proved it.”
· “No matter how sexually attracted a man might be toward other men, or a woman toward other women, and no matter how close the bonds of affection and friendship might be within same-sex couples, there is no act of court or Congress that can make these relationships the same as the coupling between a man and a woman.”
Oh and there are more. Waaaaay more. That’s a special kind of douchebag there. If you seriously hold those beliefs, then just go kill yourself and do the rest of the progressive world a favor.

Oh yeah, this is a movie review. It’s whatever. Nobody cares. Just go watch Starship Troopers instead. It’s got a similar human VS. bug concept, but injects everything with incredible levels of satire and over-the-top jingoism. Everyone is having a great time and it’s actually nothing like this, I guess. Starship Troopers is fun.
No one here is enjoying themselves. Harrison Ford still gives a good performance, but this role doesn’t exactly give him that much to do. Literally everyone else is unmemorable and I didn’t care about any of them. I guess the main kid looks like a young Rivers Cuomo, so that’s kind of cool. Let me know when he busts out a verse from Say It Ain’t – I’m sorry, I can’t get over how awful Orson Scott Card is.
Don’t support Orson Scott Card in any way. This movie is alright, but don’t watch it.
