After decades of hype, more than half a dozen attempts, and a controversy that might just lead to a boycott, Ender's Game is finally coming to the big screen. The film adaptation of Orson Scott Card's classic YA sci-fi novel hits theaters on Nov. 1, and if reviews are to judge, both fans of the book and filmgoing newcomers will be more than pleased with the result.

For those of you who have been waiting years for Ender's Game to get its big-screen adaptation, choosing to see the fantasy film, which takes place in a post-alien attack future where young children are trained for combat, is a no-brainer.
