Re: Something's just not quite adding up....

If I'm going to be honest, I expect that absent a good marketing campaign (and a good one wouldn't surprise me, but the movie does need it), the movie will be a commercial flop. It won't do horribly, but it won't be a sequel-generating smash hit (which IMHO is probably good That's about what I expe...

So, should we get "Bugger Off: The Anti-Formic Spray"?

Re: Open Casting Call

New Orleans (hence my Crescent comment...that's the train from New York to New Orleans). It's just sad...had the movie happened the last time the rumors started swirling (around Wolfgang Petersen being attached), I'd have still been young enough. I won't lie...on a certain level, it does sting a bit.

Re: Ender's Game Publicity

Let's also consider that some might-or-might-not-use CGI could be tossed together for something.

Still, I doubt that it would be kept totally under wraps tbh. Abrams was, in both cases, shooting for mystery/horror stuff...something which this definitely isn't.

Re: Open Casting Call

*sighs* Well, I'd have been in the right age bracket when I first joined here (like...eight years ago, when I was 17). And had I been the right age and seen this at the right time, you can bet your bottom dollar that I'd have grabbed a ticket on the Crescent as soon as I'd heard of this. Ah, well......

Concept Art?

Have there been any concept art releases to date? I know they're filming...I'm just wondering if there's been some official art coming out.

Edit: No, this isn't an idle question...I will be using the art somehow.

Re: Shadows in Flight

Taft, while it's true that originally SiF was supposed to be a sort of sequel to both CotM and SotG, somewhere along the way that got dropped and it just became a sequel to SotG which is why there was not mention of the descoladores storyline. There seems to be future plans for a novel called Shado...

Re: Shadows in Flight

Having read SiF...let's just say that my opinion is that it is a very good thing that Card is handing things over to other writers. The biggest disappointment is that there is no clear connection to the Descoladores (the thread that Card was purportedly dealing with in this story). Other than that,...

Re: Teacher suspended because of "pornographic" Ender's Game

From what I have gathered, the issue seems to be more that internal procedures weren't followed in selecting the novels than anything. Had those procedures been followed, the complaint would have been heard (they all are), but this wouldn't be such a big deal. As I noted in a discussion on Ansible, ...

Yeah...I haven't been paying much attention because of the development hell problems, but I saw this today. Good to see that something is happening with this...though I'm naturally nervous about a possible mishandling of it. Given the choice, I'm not sure which I'd prefer from a "make this successfu...

When you have dreams about playing weightless laser tag in the band room.
You just reminded me of when I mentally turned my math classroom 90 degrees on end or upside down some days during class. Come to think of it, I did the same during exams.

Bonzo Madrid. I have a thread in the Enderverse forum with some pictures (I don't want to be redundant with them); hopefully I'll have some post-Halloween pics from the book discussion we're doing on Ender's Game here as well.

Halloween Costume

So...I tried doing an Ender's Game-related costume a couple of years back. It didn't shake out, but I finally got it together this year: http://i675.photobucket.com/albums/vv116/GrayAnderson5/SalamanderPatch.jpg http://i675.photobucket.com/albums/vv116/GrayAnderson5/Salamander.jpg http://i675.photob...

In a sense, Bean is very much the weaker character for this in my mind. Part of it is a feeling that Card went across that "bridge too far" with him (something the Shadow series did a lot) and part of it is the fact that we got a Bond villain as his opponent, but...yeah.

I was at the lake (or at least the closest thing IRL) today. There's a lake just past Lake Brandt that fits the description quite well, truth be told; it's got a whopping three houses on it (and removing two of them over a century would not be hard at all).
