http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIu5aIrLsE8&mode=related&search= Dear lord, this video was hillarious. This one guy plays: The interviewer, the weather guy, Ender, Peter, and Valentine. I actually laughed out loud [Wall Bash] .

Wow, in Ender: the fan film, they actually have an outtake about the debate on which way to mispronounce Demosthenes. The outtake of the fight with Stilson was mildly funny. I think the used some forced perspective work there. I think Ender's Game in 8 dayswas the funniest so far.

I have to wonder if the maker of "Ender's Game Newscast" was intending the irony of including in their report "footage" from, well, video games.

I'm pretending I don't know any of these exist.

Of course, they can't be funnier than some of the things I've heard from Hollywood people about how Ender's Game should be filmed - and they weren't joking.

And does Ender have a lisp? He reminds me of Kip from Napolean Dynamite.

I really like gansta-style Peter and dimwitted Valentine. I hope this was for a project, though. If this kid's a real fan, then OSC should be very afraid.

I agree that Ender is channeling Kip.

They all seem to be school projects that have found their way to the internet. There are an awful lot of Ender student-made films. Some are screamingly funny. Most of them seem to be built around a kind of "show X number of scenes from Ender's Game" or "show what would have happened after the events in the novel to a character of your choosing" assignments.

There's one guy who has an interview with Mazer Rackham after the war is over - I laughed so hard at that one, I almost tinkled in my britches. "This is my fort. No girls. No girls! My mom can come in, but no girls!" I don't know what kind of grade that guy would have gotten, but it was at least creative.

Oh, yeah. That's another great moment.
