George Lucas is a jack ass (IMO)

George Lucas is wayyyy overrated...

Sure the first Star Wars movies were good, but he didn't even direct them all!

But let's look at the new movies.....TPM and AOTC.

They both IMO really sucked! Nothing interesting about them. AOTC was complete garbage, and Lucas in no way handled 24p well.

His movies are so childish and ridiculous...it sucks that his name rules more than say John Milius.

Yup. But how could you start a Lucas bashing thread without mentioning that the punk weasel isn't ever going to release the original trilogy in it's unbastardized form? To me, that's his worst travesty, moreso than - dare I say it? - JarJar.

Bashing George Lucas in this forum? How daring. Nobody's thought to do that before!

Thank you Parcher! You're a big man!


(No offence, this kind of thing just pisses me off to no end.)

What's a criterion? And why are they expensive?

I bought a copy of star wars on ebay and it said nothing about it being a bootleg. I guess It's a rare find

That is the oddest criticism I've ever heard

Last week Lucas vs. Jackson, this week Lucas vs. Milus...

If Gandalf, Conan the Barbarian, and Chewbacca were put together in a pit, who would come out alive?

Well since we're on the subject of George Luca$ bashing. In AOTC, did you think the diner scene was stupid? I was expecting Richie and the Fronz to show up. I tell ya, George has lost it. Don't get me started on Jar Jar Binks either :/
