More Movies


It was good. Not great. But good. I feel much of the book's impact was lost, given the adjustment to Ender's age and the few more violent/psychological scenes which were clearly down-played; though I understand their reason. I don't agree, but I understand. What also didn't help was the fact Harrison Ford seemed to phone-in his performance for much of the movie. Perhaps it would've gone better simply to limit his role in the first place, give more time to the cadets? The climax, when THE MOMENT happens, is worth it though. All-in-all, B- is about how I feel about it.


Alright, so I just (like the weekend it came out, sorry for posting so late) saw this and contrary to a friend's opinion, Malekith, in my humble opinion, is nowhere near the worst Marvel Villain ever. Still, by far, is the horror that was the deconstructed Mandarin. Anyway, the movie and Malekith were great. Lots of fun. It wasn't AMAZING. I think they missed out on a few moments here and there that could've put it into the AMAZING realm, but I don't want to spoil it for those who've not seen it yet. All-in-all, I give it somewhere between B+ and A-.

4th Amazon review!

Thanks NGreen:

"I am not usually one for reading the longer Sci-Fi novels, but Genesis was definitely worth time. Garret really does a great job providing the physical and social landscape of this world. Fantastic imagination went into the different classes of people, especially of the Arete. The characters and relationships in this book are another great strength. I give the book 4 stars because Garret has created a compelling and complex story that will leave you wanting more, but there are some editorial issues that keep it from perfect. I am certainly waiting for the next book in this series."

3rd Amazon review!

Thank you E.W:

"Ok so I have to say I'm not a huge science-fiction/fantasy person, but this book definitely has made me think twice about my reading list. One of the best books I've read in a long time! It took me some time to get thru it because I'm not use to the flow of a fantasy story but I loved the overall story. This writer has a way of making the reader feel very invested in the characters. The heroes you will absolutely love and find yourself shouting out loud when they come upon misfortune and the villains you will love as well with their extreme complexity nothing is quite what it seems. A very involved and in-depth story from start to finish, I was so sad when I reached the end but I'm so excited for the second book to come out. I can't wait to see where this story goes. Not a book for the faint of heart, but I have no doubt that most geeks out there will love this book. I have been converted, so glad I picked this one up!!! Happy reading!"
