Hollywood South Film Review: Ender's Game
The novel Ender’s Game was mana for many of us who had troubled middle schools, but Gavin Hood’s adaptation succeeds as a slick, competent actioner any dull bob can enjoy.

Still, the movie's commercial chances were immediately thrown into question as filmmakers Bill and Turner Ross chose to the name the piece after that street that no tourist can pronounce: Tchoupitoulas. The LA Times saw the film. So did Unicorn Booty.

With epics long enough to make a second large bag of ultra-butter popcorn sound good, the American movie industry seems to have lost its knack for brevity. But short films are still out there, and some are even well-crafted enough to catch the attention of the academy. For its second year, the Prytania Theater will screen the Live Action and Animated short films that were nominated for Oscars. Screenings run today through Thursday, Feb. 17.
