Face it folks...thanx to all of us fools who continue to finance his ego he believes that we will buy anything with the SW logo. Thats why the SE's suck, thats why the games suck, thats why the new toys suck, thats why the new films really suck! Star Wars was once a pure joy to behold but now its a just another franchise being used to fill the coffers of all at lucasfilm. It all makes me really sad but we have no one to blame but ourselves.

There are still some nice things coming from LukasArts.

I loved the Biggs Darklighter comics and I have the best hopes for Timothy Zahn's new book.

The difference is: In the beginning until mid of the '90s there was up to 90 % magic and carefully created stuff and about 10 % off bullshit. Today it is more or less fifty-fifty, (maybe a little less than fifty on the good side).

Are you insane? Have you seen the holiday special from 78? I almost put a gun in my mouth before it was over.

If you haven't seen it, all I have to say is, its got a musical number with Bea Arthur in the Mos Eisley Cantina.

I can picture George Lucas sitting back at Skywalker Ranch, looking at this site.

I would truly love to know if GL is aware of this site and what is going through his head if he does know.

Gundark, yes I have seen Slingblade. But it's been years so I forgot the character name. Thanks for the refresher.

I said..
"everything he released pre prequel was a quality product..."
product is something that is purchased in exchange for currency...
i dont remember Lucas releasing the holiday special.. lol in fact i think he wants to do the exact opposite..

im talking about all the toys, games and all that other shit that he makes most of his money on...

Products like the 2 Ewok films and Willow, Radioland Murders and Howard the Duck? Heck, I even hate Return of the Jedi. And the Holiday Special was most certainly a product released by Lucas. It was bought by a TV network.

About the only thiings that were good after Star Wars were The Empire Strikes Back and the Indiana Jones films (which had a lot of creative input from Spielberg).

Essentially there should be no surprise that the SE's and the prequels are of substandard quality. Lucas hasn't made a truly good product in a long time.

Well at least the reversed surround channels have been addressed.

Here it is Attack of the Clones is an amazing movie. All aspects effects, acting, story, effects, action are all perfect. The acting first of all was way overly critized. Hadyn was just fine as Anakin. Many people see his childish behavior as bad acting it is not. It is an important part of Anakins transformation to evil. How such behavior can lead to evil. Natalie Portman was wonderful. Both looks and acting. First of all she is gorgous, hot, sexy, and beautiful. She also acted very well as the girl torn between love and duty. The story works great as well. The story on how a Republic can become an empire over security concerns was great. It has all the same dark aspects that made The Empire Strikes Back so good. It has mystery, suspense, just a great story. By the way I thought having Jar Jar give Palpatine the power was awsome. It was unexpected and gave Jar Jar a purpose in the saga. The effects are fantastic. I thought giving The Two Towers the best effects award was a crime. So much of the movie is photoreal computer animation that it is practically an animated movie with live action elements. The action is the best element of the movie. The end action sequence has everything a Star Wars action sequence can have. Clones, droids, Jedi, monsters, tanks, ships, and a hottie all fighting at once in a huge explosion of action. Its so intense so epic and seeing Yoda fight was the coolest ever. After growing up with this character having so much power and never showing and want to see his power now seeing him kicking ass was awsome. Attack of the Clones was great. No its perfect. Best movie ever in my opinion.

Oh my god .....

*Warbler shakes head in disblief*

I think it would be pointless to say anything further on this subject.

this Holiday special that you've been talking about. I have a vague recollection of seeing some sort of Star Wars special on TV year ago. I am cetain that I saw it before Empire Stikes Back came out. I have never seen it again and could never figure out what it was. Maybe this Holiday special is what I'm remembering. Anybody know where I could get hold of a copy?

No where. George Lucas hates this film. Hes hated it since the beginning. He never released it on video and never allowed it to air again. He said he would burn every copy of that abomination if he could. From what I hear everyone who saw it hates it but I still wish I could see it. I never saw it and it is Star Wars so I would like to see. It also has a cartoon with Boba Fetts first appearence in the Star Wars universe.
