Pot to Kettle: Is that Black You’re Wearing?

While surfing the information wave earlier this afternoon I came across this gem at the Register:

George Lucas bitch slaps Spider-Man 3

Apparently once you have millions upon millions of dollars you get to have Titanium Plated Brass Balls….

I love this quote:

Lucas said: “It’s silly. It’s a silly movie. There just isn’t much there. Once you take it all apart, there’s not much story, is there?”

And then this one:

“People thought Star Wars was silly, too,” said Lucas. Heaven forbid. “But it wasn’t,” he added.

You’re right George, Star Wars wasn’t silly. But Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith were downright stupid! He has got A LOT of balls to talk bad about other movies after the atrocities that were those three movies. He single handedly took an exciting story with a great sense of adventure and turned it into a treatise on two things: bad acting and over-use of special effects.

At least the Spider-Man franchise realizes it’s a comic book. Sir George of CrazyLand thinks that the recent editions to the Star Wars saga were epic cinema.

It really proves a theory of mine…..the more money a person has the less they think. They pay people to do it for them.

I cannot wait until I have oodles and oodles of money….this thinking stuff is for the birds!

    I read the same article quoting Mr. “Lost-the-plot” Lucas and couldn;t help thinking that in his criticism he had summed up where he went wrong.

    In the original trilogy, there were good guys and bad guys. Why were the bad guys bad? They just were…liked power and stuff. The good guys were good because they fought for good things….freedom etc. All very “silly” without meaning.

    Watching the new films I had to become more concerned with serious matters….a trade embargo, political unrest, sentors using times of uncertainty to seize power, manipulate the system etc. All “serious” subjects that we as intelligent adults can use to learn about our actual lives.


    I want fricking Storm Troopers, with fricking laser beams shooting fricking people because thats what Storm troopers fricking do, not because “the original motivation behind the situation was….blah blah fricking blah.”

    Yes, most of us gained slight wood at Anakins transformation with the feeling of “so that’s how it happened” – the mask being put on, the music swelling made it all kind of worth it, right up until the point where Vader took it out on the plumbing with his “Padme” screams. Those pipes probably were there for some reason.

    I have no idea what my point was….seemed to have wandered off onto plumbing maintenance….

    See George Lucas, see what happens!!!!!!!
