Ender nu se joaca. Si nici Valentine.

Azi am văzut trailer-ul pentru “Ender’s Game” şi mi-am amintit de cărţile din Saga lui Ender.

Nu-s cărţi pentru copii şi nici pentru toţi oamenii mari. Sunt poveşti cu personaje “fucked up” care-şi cer iertare frumos, după ce au provocat sfârşitul lumii.

Apoi mai spun o răutate în timp ce decolează cu o navă spaţială bine întreţinută. Totul foarte deştept, totul foarte gândit.

Oscilează între sadic, cinic şi amuzant cam aşa:

“Human beings didn’t evolve brains in order to lie around on lakes. Killing’s the first thing we learned.  And a good thing we did, or we’d be dead, and the tigers would own the earth.”

“- Another oral exam, huh?, Peter said.
– Shut up, Peter, said Valentine.
– You should relax and enjoy it, said Peter. It could be worse.
– I don’t know how.
– It could be an anal exam.”

 “We’re like the wicked witch. We promise gingerbread, then eat the little brats alive.”

“That was great. They’re calling him Buttwatcher now. Just “Watcher” in front of the teachers, but everybody knows what he’s watching.”

“In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them…. I destroy them.”

Noi toţi suntem acolo. Mă aștept la un film bun.
