One of my favorite things in the world is watching a movie. Whether it’s in the theater or in the comfort of my own home, nothing is better than kicking my feet up and watching a good movie.

But, how do you ever know if it’s going to be good? Sure, there’s the trailer, but that never fully captures the brilliance of a film. So, you go to the next best thing, a review, from someone who makes it their job to know a good movie from a bad one.Julianna Ruiz

Ender’s Game doesn’t have much of a following, and that’s a darn shame. This movie came about thanks to Orson Scott Card, the author of the Ender’s Game series.

This movie has everything you could want: the bond between siblings, the hardships of training for war, and even explosive action. This movie is well made and captivating.

Ender’s Game is a story about Andrew Wiggin, nicknamed Ender, and his journey to save the world. The world has been invaded by creatures from another planet and Ender is chosen as commander, to help fight on behalf of Earth.

A good movie needs characters you can connect with and these characters are smart, engaging and you can’t help but cheer for them.

The visuals of this movie are incredible. The futuristic technology used in the movie, make for exciting and eye catching effects. They take the movie to a new level and entice the watcher further than they could have hoped.

Like any book lover, I also recommend reading the book first, but the movie can definitely hold its own. I highly recommend this movie.
