So, I'm with you on the rights contract, and I don't want to give him more money. I've missed out on several movies that I've REALLY wanted to see, because I refuse to give Tom Cruise money. But none of them were books that I wanted to see made into a movie since I first read it. This looks so well done, that I'm not sure I could stick to that. *sigh* Unfortunately, the thing that people have so much trouble understanding (how Card can write tolerance but be so intolerant), I kind of get. OSC is Mormon. He used Ender's Game. and the subsequent sequels, to promote religious tolerance - to show that Mormons "aren't all that different from other Christians". As a matter of fact, Ender's parents are Catholic and Mormon, to show that "gosh, you guys may think of Mormons as cultists, but look, we're more similar than you think in these ways." He did, in fact, have an agenda in the writing of this book, but the tolerance lesson - obviously - was only meant to help tolerance towards Mormons. I don't think he expected the tolerance lesson to be generalized as much as it was.
You can dance better than that - I've seen it! :) (Nice job on the song though.)

Nicely done. 10 year old's comment was "That's weird", but I have a picture of her completely engrossed in reading it. (The blood-sucking at the end was the part that got to her.) The 10 year old boy loved it. Of course, then he went on to say "You know, I'm not going to be able to get to sleep until midnight, right?" :)
