Returning

I was here a few years ago when I first got hooked onto the novels (and got everyone other friend of mine to read EG too), and now I'm coming back for the movie experience with you guys. First I think I should reread the novels though haha.

Re: Movie will be Ender's Game + Ender's Shadow?

In my opinion, Ender's Game movie is a one shot, there can't really be a sequel unless they include some part of Ender's Shadow. Even then, SftD and ES (or SotG) don't make good sequels because the conflict is different.

Who is behind Bean on the cover of Shadow?

I think I might've asked this before (if there was an answer I completely forgot), and I'm sure more than one person is confused. Who is that person standing behind Bean on the kid version of the book? I'm thinking it can be from Ender to Petra to Nikolai. Heck, it might even be Poke. Ender is very ...

I very much enjoyed BONE, but probably my absolute favourite series is NAUSICAA OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND by Hayao Miyazaki. It's the only print story he's done, I think, and it's only seven volumes, but it's absolutely spectacular. I thought that Nausicaa only came in graphic adaptation of the mov...

Oh please. Children are just easy to manipulate. Once you know their behavioural patterns, it's not hard to make them go in a direction you want.

Say that they're both crazy. Okay then the difference between Peter and Achilles is that Peter's craziness is born from jealousy. He liked Ender when he was born, and he was jealous when he clearly favoured Val. As a result, he treats Ender harshly. But then his baby brother SAVES THE WORLD. Theresa...

I think Bean was right. ("Be a man, do the right thing.") He was unselfish, but Pet was too selfish to forgive him for it. Leaving her I mean. I'm pretty sure that if Bean had to leave Pet for her good, without children in the equation, he'd do it too. It's not just their children, it's Be...

It is not world peace if it is under someone's rule.

(I don't know if this is a good reason but) Achilles doesn't want world peace because he would have all that he could ever want and he would not have to work for anything. He would get bored. He would do killin's.
