Star Wars: Clone Wars

Today we went to see an advanced screening of the movie Star Wars: Clone Wars. I'm not a huge Star Wars fan, but I enjoy watching the movies. When we got there, they were taking up cell phones so no one would take pictures or film bits of the movie. They also had one of the Storm Troopers and Bobofet in costume taking pictures with people. The people attending were primarily employees of Time Warner and their families. We were all treated to the movie, popcorn, drinks, and a chance to win prizes. I didn't win any of the prizes, but we had a good time. One of my coworkers brought his family and we were talking to his son who is 9. I asked his son if he had gotten his picture taken with the Storm Trooper and his response was - "How? He doesn't have a cell phone either." We all cracked up. I guess kids today don't use cameras that aren't part of their cell phones.

I know a lot of people aren't interested because it is animated, but I actually thought is was pretty good. It was 3D animation which is not like the typical cartoonish animation. In comparison to Transformers, Star Wars is much better - hands down. The movie had a good story line and was interesting to watch. Don't listen to the critics - get out an go see the movie. My favorite characters were the Padawan and Stinky.
