I just saw this movie with my friends and hated it

Pros:
Good special affects
bright color set
vibrant and differing environments

Cons:
Stupid ass plot
Plot inside a plot inside a plot (plot-ception)
then you have these stupid ass moments with this magic thingy that made like mirages of people
This guy died, gues what, that was his fucking mirage that took out a whole army and then died, HES FUCKING ALIVE NOW (this isn't in the movie) but it is an example
This movie was so bad it made me rant in the car for like 10 mins which I don't normally do

DIE THOR!

What?! How does somebody not like Ender's game? Just visualizing the battle station games is amazing.

its widely considered one of the best books ever written redman. the plot is also considered one of the best plots ever. far from cheesy. I can't even begin to understand how you think its cheesy lol. Top three book I have ever read.

Haha, that's what me and serial were saying. "The only people who don't like Ender's Game are people who just don't like reading."

I won't see Ender's Game on principle. I may pirate it, but I won't financially support a property made by a homophobic bigot who uses his fame and influence to destroy the opportunities of others.

If you watched the first Thor/Captain America/Iron Man 2-3/Avengers and expected a decent plot and continuity then you deserve to be disappointed. That is like saying Pacific Rim was garbage because of it's plot. Today, movies like that spit on source material to appease the "bro" crowd with fancy images and hot women in tights. Ender's Game is no exception.
SpoilerShow
In the novel, the main character Ender (a tactical savant by age 6) is selected by an international fleet to defend the earth and the human race from extinction at the hands (or rather, claws) of the insectoid Formics, determined to colonize our world. The book covers his years of training, in which Ender is isolated from family and friends, pitted against fellow child geniuses, and manipulated by his superiors to take drastic and horrific actions without his knowledge, all in the name of the greater good. It’s an intense and stressful book to read.

The film has almost none of these elements. Characters are rewritten to seem silly (the depiction of Bean was a particular outrage), while others have changed dimensions that change the tone of the story. Far from isolated, Ender finds staunch friendship in fellow Battle School trainee Petra. In fact, their relationship worryingly contains overtones that could be construed as prepubescent beginnings of romance.

More devastating is the complete omission of several gut-punching revelations designed to unsettle the reader. By the time you finish the book, you are horrified not just by what the children are forced to do but by what murderous little monsters they seem to have become. None of this is included in the film, and instead we are left with an action-adventure film for teens with poor dialogue. While the cast is mostly very good, with few notable exceptions, they are left with clunky and often cheesy lines to deliver. The ending was given a completely different feel after so many little changes to mitigate the intensity of the novel.

I'd argue that batman isn't a superhero, just a hero. A superhero needs superhuman powers. Spiderman was always my favorite when I was younger. I used to love playing Spider-Man/X-Men: Arcade's Revenge.

nope don't get me started on that. batman is a superhero. I am a freaking comic book nerd. I have owned thousands of comics over the years. Batman's super powers are his mind. He is the greatest detective on earth and literally has the knowledge to beat any and all other super beings. He actually has files on all of them with weaknesses and how to kill them if need be. Even superman. Superman said himself that if anyone were to ever beat him it would be batman and batman alone.

sorry comic book rant.

No, superman would never do that. Even under the influence of magic superman still couldn't kill anything. Now if we were talking about Golden Age superman where he was first introduced, then sure he would kill him. That superman would throw robbers miles into the air only to let them fall, or punch normal humans through walls. These people of course died. Silver age and beyond, would kill himself before harming a human. Even when he killed doomsday it was something he didn't want to do. He knew if he didn't that so many more people would die, but he still struggled with the idea. Superman would inherently lose to batman because of his morals. Batman doesn't want to kill either, but will if that will save lots of other lives. You are right though, if we took morals away from both characters superman would win hands down. There is even a comic where superman is bad and he lobotomizes most of the superheros in the world to make them his controlled minions. However, if we are just simply discussing the characters, then no superman loses every time.
