In the end, our hero learns the encouraging lesson that alien races are worth trying to understand. Is it naïve of me to hope that watching this movie and revisiting this story might inspire Card to try doing the same — but toward other humans?

Alan Scherstuhl ,RFT reviewer did not review the movie, he reviewed the book author's homophobic tendencies and expanded that into formulating possible racial posturing within the movie. Hate the author= hate the movie ? GTFU Alan ! Why don't you just say "I think the author is a homophobe racist and avoid the movie at all costs !" ? I have been reading many other reviews with yours being the only one focusing on the author and not the movie. Here's everything wrong with the RFT review of Ender's Game ---> Alan Scherstuhl I'll go see the movie and make up my own opinion.

I don't feel the need to see this in a theater. When it shows up on Netflix, I'll watch it. But I don't want to deal with theater audiences and I don't want to give any money to the looney author.

I fell in love with a book in sixth grade, finding out the authors regrettable politics, twenty years later, didn't make me love the book any less and I certainly don't feel bad about buying a ticket to the movie...which, yes, could certainly have been better.
