Well this is certainly convenient. If you’ve always wanted to be a Jedi (or a Sith) but weren’t born with an abundance of Midichlorians, someone has finally bottled the Force and will happily sell it to you for a mere $16.
It’s just a teensy bit goofy to be swinging lightsabers around in the forest dressed as Jedi and Sith but it’s also a helluva lot of fun because these guys are so good at handling the lightsabers that you could totally convince me that they’ve managed to tap into The Force in real life.

Star Wars vs Harry Potter. The Force vs magic. Jedis vs wizards. Light sabers vs wands. People born before 1990 vs the kids who come after. Who would win in this epic battle? In this ridiculously enjoyable video with CGI effects of two friends battling for sci-fi fantasy supremacy, we see a Jedi fight a wizard to end…

Lately, when people ask Lost's producers if they're going to answer our questions, they bring up Star Wars' midichlorians, as proof that some things are better not explained. But like so many people, they're missing the real reason midichlorians sucked.
R2 is squealing at me. Honest-to-God stormtroopers are standing guard nearby. Perfect conditions to prove that I've outgrown my Padawan pants, and can now move a plastic ball with my mind like a real Jedi.
"Wow!" was basically my reaction to this video of the Fly Stick levitating toy in action, followed by the realization that this is about as near as you'll ever get to really playing with magic (or the Force, my inner geek reminded me). Of course the forces it uses are all very real: it's a mini battery-powered Van…
