Such hate already in this thread.

Speaking of hate, do you think George Lucas hates Harrison Ford for being the one fans always loved more?
I'd like a qui-gon jinn please with an Obi-Wan to go.

Given the type of gift I'm thinking you'd send..........Yeah, I'd say it's illegal.

Poor George! Nothing he's done deserves such hatred. He created this whole thing to begin with.

And then he ruined the whole thing. That's why he deserves this hatred.

George hating Harrison Ford might explain why Ford gets tortured in both The Empire Strikes Back and Indiana Jones & The Temple of Doom.

I know, but I sitll don't hate him personally. I just think he's extremely misguided right now.

Well, I do hate him. He has treated the fans like sh**.

I agree.

And before people start a flame war by saying that he can do whatever he wants, just remember, that we, the fans, made him who he is with our money. He should show us respect. We could just as easily have made SW a huge flop and he'd be some hack studio shill director with no power of his own whatsoever.

I agree that he has treated us very poorly. And that he definitely should release the OOT on DVD. Heck, I HATE the SE's.

But I don't hate George.

With fans like your dumbass, as well as the dumbasses on this board, who the hell can blame him. This board alone shows how pathetic Star Wars fans has become, and how low it's sunk.

he continues to deny his fans


What fans? None of you on this board are fans of George Lucas. Why should George Lucas give a damn about a bunch of dipshits who wish him dead over simple movies, who call him names at every turn. If I was Lucas, I'd look you in your eye and tell you that not only will you not get the originals, you won't get anymore Star Wars period.

Quote

that we, the fans, made him who he is with our money


Please do me a favor and shut up. Neither you nor any of the fans made Lucas. He made himself by starting with nothing and created an iconic series of films. Did any of the fans have a hand in creating Star Wars? Did the fans create any of the characters, worlds, or anything in Star Wars? Did the fans send Lucas money to make Star Wars? Did fans stay up and worry with Lucas during the making of these films? Did fans visit Lucas in the hospital when Star Wars put him there? Did fans help direct or produce the films? The answer to those questions is a big fat NO!

Fans contributed absolutely nothing when he was creating these films. All they did was consume. They spent money of their own free will. If Lucas had created a series of horrible films, there wouldn't be Star Wars fans today. The fact is if it wasn't for Lucas, none of you wouldn't even be here right now. This board wouldn't exist. Fans didn't make shit.

Lucas owes you nothing. What makes Star Wars fans more pathetic than any other film fanbase is this sense of entitlement they think they should have. You own nothing. You deserve nothing.

Um... Warbler. Nearly all of us share the SAME opinion; we just respond differently to the facts. Yeah, Lucas has done some moronic things with Star Wars... But that is no justification for your & JediKev's hate.

Wow , are you his biographer? or a relative? you seem a little angry, the way I see it people are voicing their discord with lucas's decision for not releasing the OT, granted personal attacks are not really a good way to articulate a point of view, but then who is calling who 'dipshits'.

This whole board is about the Original Trilogy, the one thats been available for the last 26 years or so, the one that I watched in the cinema in the late seventies.Call me nostalgic but I like that version I grew up with, the thing that baffles me is the refusal to include it on a dvd release, so many other films have Directors cuts and SE versions, for the 2004 version to be changed a new transfer sans CGI would have to have been done so why not bung it on there and make a old man happy.

I noticed something: The "Lucas" in this thread's title is spelled with two Ss....


So, to Jedikev: Grow up! What are you? Thirteen? As if it were even original anyway. Things like this (and Warbler's seemingly unbridled hate) make this board look bad. How can we get Lucas to respect our opinions calling him names and acting childish? Granted he doesnt seem to respect them anyway, but calling him names and wishing him dead makes us look bad, not him.

Never mind. I'm done with flame wars. Joe_H isn't worth it.

Go home, troll.

I second that motion. Any thirds?

Not to seem cruel, but I'm third. Because of the profanity and personal insults in the first post in an alien board. Rather rude.

This board had at one time a reputation of being very clean and civil pretty much across the board. Let's keep it that way.

P.S. Anger leads to hate, which leads to the Dark Side.
