Hi there bloggies, I’ve been seeing some post warning me of an A – Z Challenge and I was curious. I’ve seen this around before but have never participated, for some mad reason I thought I would give it a go.
So here I am.
My theme is the A-Z of Scifi moves, I’ve not given this a great deal of thought and I know of a number but I won’t lie there’s some I will struggle with. I hope you enjoy them!
Z is for Ender’s Game
There’s a Z in this I promise – just don’t look for it!
Hostile aliens called Formics attach the Earth and only when legend Mazer (See there’s a Z!) Rackham can Earth take a victory. To find the next Mazer Col Graff (Harrison Ford) starts a military program – training young recruit in the tactics of war. One boy stands out – Ender Wiggin and Mazer Rackham take him on as his protege to prepare him take the war to the Formics.
This is a great film! I was being silly to include in Z but I had to have it in the list somewhere! Like any great Sci-Fi story it covers not just spaceships and blazing battles but some big ethical issues as well and like the greats there’s a big twist in the tale with another twist at the end.
The conclusion is not what you expect and leaves Ender with a huge responsibility.
With Y done that means Z is next… This is the last one!!!!
