The Revenge of George Lucas

I think he makes the movies crappy on purpose, because, really, who's going to stop him, or even tell him to his face? He'll pay a guy to dress like Boba Fett and come get medievil on your ass, literally.

So, yeah, I saw the trailer for Episode III, and you know what I think? I think he's having a ball destroying everything he ever built. Really. He's created this cult/religion that practically hold a society together, and in this next movie he gets to dismantle it. It will be fun to watch, though it may not be a great movie. Plus, we already know everyone except Yoda and Ben are gonna die. I can't wait to see how Sam Jackson bites it. Get it?

(See, he was in this movie where he got killed by a shark biting him in half. Funny, no?)

It looks exciting, and given Episode II was better than Episode I, I can say without a doubt Episode III will be better than Episode II. Really, it couldn't be any worse, because if nothing else you get to see a load of crappy characters die.

But, if he'd taken my advice, not only would he have pissed off every loyal follower, he'd have had an actual brilliant plot twist.

What was my advice?

Well, since you asked, Ben should have turned out to be Luke & Lea's father, Anakin finds out she's been cheating, which send him spinning into the Dark Side and puts him on a quest to destroy all the Jedi. See, it makes sense, AND it pisses people off, it's a two-for-one deal!

Also watched Cellular yesterday. Not a great movie by any means, the plot is standard and the acting is par, BUT it's action from beginning to end, it really doesn't ever stop, and that's a good thing. It's easy to get caught up in and it doesn't take a genius to understand it. Good popcorn flik, probably the best in quite awhile. Recommended for anyone looking to kill a few hours in an entertaining and exciting way.
