5. George Lucas may not be in everyone’s good books – but I like the guy. Having said that, as a life long Star Wars fan I have no intention of going to see The Clone Wars. It’s not due to the fact I hated the prequels (I didn’t) I just don’t like kids and I’m not a big fan of animation.
However, I will be able to watch Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull from the comfort of my own living room when it hits DVD and Blu-ray on October 14th.
There’s a gazillion special features available on the two disc versions (with Blu-ray getting the most).
