Darth Grave and Anakin fight…now, none of my children have ever seen a Star Wars movie, new or old. All of their Star Wars information comes from the Star Wars Lego Gameboy game and friends.
When I asked Enoch if there was really a Darth Grave, he said no, he made it up. But for the record, Darth Grave is a red skeleton. With golden eyes.
I was tempted to ask how the "golden eyes" could possibly stay in the skeleton, but decided to just let my boys play.
Besides, I wanted to take more pictures.
And enjoy the warm sunshine.
Oh, and don't worry about Darth Skeleton. He got his revenge.
Eta: I haven't seen the Star Wars movies since I was a kid, so I couldn't possibly make a judgement call on their morality or anything else. I do remember watching them in the theater with my family. I remember Jabba the Hut, Chewy, and Ewoks. In fact, I clearly remember playing Ewoks in third grade. My children haven't seen the movies, simply because we don't have TV (never have and never will). We have a subscription to Netflix and show our children carefully chosen movies. Like Apollo 13, Titanic and National Treasure. I previewed the movies before showing them, and skipped those scenes in Titanic when they came on. Simple. What is our movie criteria? We don't have one per se. I'm one of those mean moms who believes TV and video games rot my children's brains, so it's limited. Therefore, when we watch a movie, its as a family, and it's an event. Sometimes a child has heard of a movie and asks to watch it…or sometimes it correlates with what we are studying in school (Titanic, Apollo 13). My children are history buffs, so I knew they would love National Treasure. I have nixed certain movies (like Homeward Bound…not only did I find it to be drivel, but the constant b*tt jokes I found to be crude and juvenile. And worse, they were being repeated). For the most part we will choose an adult movie over a "kid's movie".
