Hi Bryan Here…..
It might be to hype up the 3D release of one of the worst films ever made, or may be the anger of an old man finally getting back at his fans. But I’d like to think once upon a time, George Lucas liked making movies. Sadly that hasn’t been the case in over 20 years. Lucas recently said he was done with making big blockbuster movies. He said, “Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?” Now he has gone the way of the internet in trying to get a rise out of his most rabid of fans.
Lucas said this week, “The controversy over who shot first, Greedo or Han Solo, in Episode IV, what I did was try to clean up the confusion, but obviously it upset people because they wanted Solo to be a cold-blooded killer, but he actually isn’t. … Greedo is the one who shot first.”
When Lucas says “Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?”, he has to know the reasons. Deep down he has to know that he is terrible and hates his loyal fans. Terrible to his extremely rabid loyal fans who buy anything and everything comes out that has the Star Wars logo on it.
And the whole Greedo shooting first comment is entirely bullshit. Don’t you think by now, over 30 years later, he would have said something. And that every single Star Wars fan is wrong and confused, but he is right. Doesn’t make sense.
And why does Lucas feel the need to change his beloved films every few years? And not just change them, he makes them worth. From Vader yelling “Noooooooooooo” in Jedi to the Ewoks blinking, to adding silly characters and a music video in Jaba’s palace, Lucas should be stripped of his duties on Star Wars and just be allowed to collect money.
Also, another reason he seems to not know why his fans hate him, is that he has never given a proper release of the original films. His constant reply is that it is too expensive and would take tons of time. Lucas, you alone personally, have over $2 billion dollars. You own ILM, Skywalker Sound, and have money from Pixar. We know you have the money from every penny you steal from our fans from putting out the most minor of characters from the Star Wars universe out in every form of merchandising. Secondly, I know you have more than a willing team to go through the original films with a fine tooth comb and clean up the originals and unaltered versions to please your fans.
The fact that you have never done this, and most likely will never do this, and constantly avoid the topic will result in me not ever purchasing anything from you again. Did I purchase the bluray Star Wars set? No. Did I go to the theatre and see the worst movie ever made in 3D? No. Will I ever? Most likely not.
Lucas is a boob. And Star Trek is better.
