I guess. I'm just tired of getting all excited over these movies when, truth be told, they aren't very good. Not only that, since Lucas spaces these films so far apart, the spoiler factor is just insane. I'll go see the damn thing of course but the magic died a long time ago.
I dunno, I keep hearing all this talk about B&B doing another movie, which is either a prequel prequel to the orginal Star Trek (sigh!); a Starfleet Academy movie (sigh!); or a prequel about a young Kirk and Spock (which I wasn't even aware that they knew each other prior to the Enterprise, but oh well).That is exactly and precisely how I felt when I did finally see "Nemesis" (what sadly might be the last of the Star Trek movies at least for some time).
No I haven't. Jesus, someone needs to stop that man before he destroys another franchise....have you heard that GL is now penning the Indy 4 script himself after firing Darabont and throwing out his script?
According to IMDB, he came up with the "story" for all three films, but whether he actually wrote the screenplays is beyond me. Oh, and he also came up with the "story" for a lot of those forgettable adventures/chronicles of young Indiana Jones as well.
* hmm, looks like Jeffery Boam actually wrote the screenplay for the Last Crusade. Whether Lucas actually penned the other two is a mystery.
How, exactly does that work anyway? If I, for example, brainstorm with some writers and they go off and write a screenplay, would I get "story" credit? Should I? How much of a piece of the pie does the "story" guy get compared to the screeenwriter? If I'm an executive producer and I say, "hey, I want a big mechanical spider in this movie," and, because I'm the executive producer, there is a big mechanical spider in the film, would I get "story" credit as well? What if a friend, who is writing the Green Lantern screenplay, for example, calls me up (because I'm a comic book buff) and I tell him how cool it would be if he incorporated the midget-like blue-skinned Guardians in the movie (for the Yoda factor) and he does it, would I get "story" credit than?Lucas is credited with story on all three.
I don't think anyone here has even suggested that GL didn't have a huge impact on the special effects industry. We're talking about his inability to write and direct a halfway decent film.He is direct responsible of developing the special effect industry. Who denies this fact it is too young to understand the international phenomena that Star Wars movies was.
That's pretty much the point a lot of people miss. Most of the truly rabid-SW fans were children when the first 3 were released. Now that they're older, they want a movie that appeals to them, but still kicks ass like they thought the first 3 did.Well these movies are made for kids... there's a reason Lucas makes them all PG, even the supposely super-dark Revenge of the Sith or whatever it's gonna be called. Of course they are gonna suck to the adult minds.
