Saw Ender's Game
yesterday and really enjoyed it. The young actors in its large ensemble cast were remarkable. I saw it in a perfect frame of mind because I had recently read Card's sequel to Ender's Game
, Speaker for the Dead
, and thought it was wonderful. Thus it was fun to see Ender, his sister Valentine, and a bunch of others in the film whose later lives (way later
) I had just read about.
The picture looked great but the audio was world class. I saw it 2D in a large Cinemark theater, which didn't advertise anything extra in the way of audio technology but this film's audiotrack was nothing less than awe inspiring anyway.
