Re: Ender's Game (2013 Film)

I viewed the water thing as they were looking for habitable planets with plenty of water to settle a colony on.
Any other interpretation is silly.
I wish Hollywood wasn't so silly...
And besides, how would we know they were looking for water anyway. We hadn't been able to communicate so much as a basic idea with the Formics yet somehow we know they were looking for water! No, you see Graff saw this old show called V, or maybe W, or even VW, where aliens came to take the water. When Ender asked why they came he just threw that out there to scare the poor kid.

And why send a 78 billion dollar weapon, when you could have sent 78 billion dollars of bottled water? The weapon is way cooler...
