Geesh, the last thing you want to do is admit that trolls got to you. If I had anymore respect left for this guy, it would be gone.

If I had any respect left for this goiter-necked fuck, it would have evaporated the second I saw this shirt stretched over his corpulence:

What a miserably unaware creature.


How can you be that indifferent to circumstance then whine as quoted?  Also, unless it's genetics, that picture is convinving me that excercise as I get older is clearly the way to go - Ford is still in amazing shape for his age, while Lucas shows us the other end of the spectrum.

LOL, as much as I love Ford, he looks sick in this picture. I mean litterally sick. :B

I'd look like that if Lucas was standing in front of me wearing that T-Shirt.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

That's unreasonable though. You shouldn't let things affect you like that :P And plus, he's wearing a T-Shirt with you on it, can't be that bad! A tad on the geek side, but not sickening! :D



Dangit I love Lucas Film. George did an amazing job with all six StarWars films. Phantom Menace was my least favorite but I still enjoyed it. Starwars was an amazing series arrg I am guessing this means his live action tv series is dead now too awes I was really looking forward to that.

I hope Lucas is just talking about Star Wars when he says leave the business. I like his other work too. Egen though Red Tails wasn't anything to write home about it was still worth the money to watch. George is made for the film industry I have no doubt he is capable of releasing another amazing film.

George appears to have my problem. He can't make his vision short. He already said that Red Tails was the second movie in a three film franchise. He had three movies written a prequel and sequel. So I kept that in mind while watching the film. I think if he was able to just create a single movie maybe a three hour epic adventure he could hit pay dirt again.

I mean when Spielberg creates a movie he doesn't make it three parts right off the bat usually he creates a single mov

THAT SIG IS FUCKING GIGANTIC !!!



First of all, I'd just like to say that the units of Force are clearly Newtons and not Midi-chlorians...

I'm actually slightly sad about this. On the one hand, the prequels had their issues... lots and lots of issues... but on the other hand, I enjoyed watching the movies too. It's like how watching Avatar was for me. I just shut my brain off and stared at the pretty pictures. And it was entertaining.

He can complain all he want, and technically he's right (people insulting him for his work certainly wouldn't encourage him to actually listen to their complaints)... but he fails to recognize that people have legitimate issues with the movies too. Like the acting. It was really bad in the prequels. I don't think that the purpose of the Anakin/Padme scenes in Ep II were to make me cringe and smack my forehead until it was raw. The music made me more emotional than those scenes did.

Speaking of the music, that's definitely my favourite part of the prequels. Duel of the Fates, Anakin's Theme, Across the Stars... I love pretty much every theme John Williams composed for the prequels.

Anyway... I'd like for Lucas to understand that his vision isn't necessarily good, and for fans to understand that insulting and berating the guy for following his vision isn't going to make him more likely to actually listen to the fans. Then, once we all understand this, we can all be happy and make some epic The Old Republic movies!

Well the whole point is he is a well known Director.

Everyone knows him and everyone knows about Star Wars and its easily the biggest Franchise in North America.
Its like the film that everyone has seen and knows about and makes references.
Every country or culture has such a film and in NA its Star Wars.



Are there actually people who want MORE Star War films from Lucas ? It's not even fanboyism at this point, it's more masochism



Somebody doesn't like Pizza Rolls.



Love and tolerate.

The A/P scenes in episode II work out well enough if one views them through the lens of "awkward teenage boy who really hasn't had much time to socialize as he's been jedi training who runs into the hottie from his past," Anakin's conduct seems to work out pretty well. Although he's supposed to be 19, one must think that his social development has been stunted and that he is dealing with a lot of pressure, it's not really conducive to being very smooth with the ladies. It's the scenes between them in Episode III that are inexcusable

It's not that. It's the acting that I have a problem with. And yes, it is quite possibly worse in Ep III. I looked up one of the scenes in the second movie to find what I meant, and the top comment was "I don't like sand... It's so.... Sandy.... But you, you are not sandy, and that is why I love you." Made me laugh.

My point is though, is that I don't care if it's the normal awkward teen stuff. I've been there. It's the acting that gets me. It feels fake and forced. It's painful to watch.
