Star Wars Clone Wars and Robot Chicken both rock

image  and 

This weekend I finally got to see Star Wars The Clone Wars and while my Star Wars sensibilities were offended for the 1st 5 minutes (the voices are different and my eyes had to get used to the new visuals), but once I had done so both Molly and I really enjoyed the film.

If you like simple fun, then you should also look at the Clones Vs Droids Game at http://www.clonesvdroids.com/.  It is very simple, move your troops around, plan your shots and then see if your shots work, assuming your opponent moves too.  I have to say it took a few goes to master when playing against real opponents as first they moved than I had expected and then they actually jumped onto my “side” – something I was not prepared for!  Have a go, it is fun!

Finally, on my Star Wars-tastic adventure there is Robot Chicken.  This short DVD is based on the former works of Robot Chicken – the stop motion animation group take their normal themes and apply them to Star Wars.  I really, really enjoyed the scene where George Bush battles Lincoln with light-saber or where the Emperor is shouting at Vader on the phone for not being able to “protect a little 2 meter exhaust port” until he makes him cry.  Anyway, have a look by clicking the picture below.

Enjoy!

I took Jeevan and Avneet to see Clone Wars and I have to agree with you, that once you get used to the animation it is pretty good and action packed. We all enjoyed it :-)
