  1. Funny you should bring this up. Due to some upcoming travel, I’m completely free tomorrow, and I’m thinking of watching both of these back-to-back 🙂

  2. I’m going to see Thor, but I’ve seen Ender’s Game, and it’s good. Not great. Good. Thor will probably be the same. So, six of one, half a dozen of the other.

  3. Ender’s Game is a horrible adaptation of the book, particularly with how it treats the characters. It probably would have worked better as an HBO miniseries where they could have actually done the book justice and still kept all the dark stuff.

    See Thor 2. I’m pretty sure it’ll be more of the same from the first movie, which is fine by me.

  4. For me this would be easy.

    Comic book movies rarely grab me. In fact I only saw Captain America because I was having a really bad day that day, and I needed to get away from it all and detach for a bit. Fortunately it wasn’t Captain Anti-America.

    Ender’s game though on one hand I didn’t enjoy as a book, but on the other hand is apparently per above a horrible adaptation.

    So I’d go with Ender’s Game.

    1. Suggestion: Pick a day and read Ender’s Game in one sitting. Make you are dead tired by the time you come to the end. This is how I read the book the first time. I guarantee you will, at the very least, identify with Ender more.

  5. Go to Benjies Drive In up on Eastern Boulevard north of B-more and see the triple feature with the kids: Thor 2, Free Birds, Gravity.
