Ender's Game might be the perfect example of why sites like Rotten Tomatoes or even simple grading systems should be abolished in film criticism. It's a film that gets just as much right as it does wrong, delighting and maddening in almost equal amount.

Enter for a chance to win one of five pairs of passes to an advance screening of Ender's Game in Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, or Vancouver on Wednesday, October 30th, courtesy of Dork Shelf and eOne Films!
