    I’d rather have Lucas. He created it, so at least he has the right to do with it what he wants.

    JJ Abrams should be put in charge of reality shows. they are already crappy anyway.

    You seem to be implying that there’s somebody worse at writing/directing Star Wars than George Lucas. I assure you this is not the case.

    Maybe JJ will steal the idea of a planet-destroying weapon from his “Star Trek” reboot. Oh, wait…

    Dean is young… He never tried watching Star Trek the Next Generation where the dialogue is ‘really’ interchangeable in addition to being inept.

    When Lucas lost Leigh Brackett for his scripts after Empire Strikes Back, that is when his SW universe dialogue started to cave in.

    Hey, I’m no big fan of either of them but I think he said that because George Lucas would have a conniption looking at dialogue he did not create.

    “George, you can type this ****, but you sure as hell can’t say it!” – Harrison Ford, to George Lucas, during the production of the original movie.

    Weird that Lucas’ dialog would get worse with time. Most people improve their skills over time .His first three movies were pretty good. It didn’t get weird until later years. Maybe it was going almost 20 years without attempting anything new that was the problem. Rusty.

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    Lucas only wrote the dialogue for Ep. IV. Irv Kirschner wrote the dialogue for (and directed) V and VI. The dialogue in IV was clunky and forced (no pun intended).

    Irv Kirschner only directed V, The Empire Strikes Back. Lucas apparently didn’t like his technique…
    which is curious, as it is regarded by many, myself included, as the best of the entire six!

    That’s what happens when doing a trio of triads out of order and so far apart. You lose continuity. Writers and directors have no idea where the story was intended to go. Doing the first three second, it didn’t matter what the “vision” was as long as it ended up segueing into Ep 4 (the original). But the odd mix of high-tech to lower-tech, back to high tech ends up looking like Hawaii 5-0 then and now and trying to treat it as a natural progression.

    Excuse me! This is Valentine’s Day! He’s suppose to be writing a Valentine letter!!

    I think Lucas is a capable director, but he can’t write. Jersey Shore has better dialog than the three prequel films.

    Hm. I would rather beg him to pick up some of the eu and read it so he doesn’t mess anything up.

    “…reading these comments I wonder why most of these people ever watched another of the films after seeing the first that they didn’t like.”


    Speaking personally, I disliked “Ani the Menace” enough that I passed on “Send In The Clones,” but I figured I ought to see “Steaming Pile of Sith” just to close the circle, to see how it would segue into the real “Star Wars” (I refuse to call it “A New Hope”).


    (I liked “Empire Strikes Back,” but it’s so clearly a ‘middle chapter’; “Return of the Teddies” should have been a warning sign that the shark was being jumped, but after 20 years I was hoping that it was an anomaly.)

    I fell asleep watching episode IV at the theater. It was pretty unwatchable for me.
