. . . I don’t view Lucas in a such a harsh light anymore as I come to understand him
I’m on the same page. I more feel sorry for the guy, actually. I mean, he did make some terrible moves with the PT, but it occurs to me that the bones of a good story are there, if only the scripts had been tweaked a bit, a couple different casting choices, and most importantly a different director(s).
Yeah, those movies were almost good… well, except for the writing, the acting, the directing, and the plot. He really had something there, such a shame that it didn’t work out.
