Review: The Walking Dead 134: From Whispers to Screams

Ender’s Game: Geektrum Movie Review

Posted: November 17, 2013

First off, let me say that I am not going to touch on the controversy surrounding the author of the book, Ender’s Game, which the film is based on. It doesn’t have any influence on how I felt about the film itself. Honestly I enjoyed Ender’s Game, it was an intelligent Sci-Fi film that didn’t
