We took SS10 to go and see Star Wars – Revenge of the Sith… and what a great flick!!!
We had to drop DH off at the airport within seconds of it finishing, and had a great conversation with Josh about which battles were the easiest and hardest… he has such an imagination. We decided that the battle between Annikin/Obi-Wan Kenobi and Count Dooku was the most difficult… as it took two Jedis to overcome the Sith Count Dooku. We also decided that General Grievous wasn’t in it as long as we thought… and that Josh expected him to have collected more light-sabers.
It’s great talking about movies with kids… it reminds me that even though I thought that Hayden Christensen didn’t quite pull off the turning of Anakin, Star Wars has always been a bit hammy – and that’s the beauty of it. It was real in Josh’s mind and he and I spent an hour dissecting the battles and the characters afterwards – totally cool!
