“I have a bad feeling about this,” George Lucas.
I have to blow off some steam. I saw Episode III in the theaters and was swept up in the effects: an opiate that blocks out dialogue and story. Now that I watched the DVD plus the extras I have to say Lucas’ power issues piss me off. The whole damn saga is about not giving into the darkside yet that’s what he’s done.
For one, some dialogue was recycled from Episode IV, V, VI. That’s just shit slop lazy slop shit.
Second, why did he have to have his hands in every detail? Everything from stunts, makeup, hair, food, bathroom chorography, rash removal, and pissing green blood drug test. Couldn’t he have focused on the script and story allowing his crew some breathing space? You’d think he was Vader the way they all nod their heads and tip toe around him.
My biggest grumble is with the script. If all he wanted to do was play around with digital effects why couldn’t he allow a writer to write the damn thing? I know that would never happen so at least have enough humility to allow someone to look over your shoulder and say, “George, you used those lines in episode V,” or “stop using cliches!” If he had I’m certain we would have less wooden performances and plotting.
The only one that really takes a dig at the production in Ewan McGregor, Yoda blesses him.
