Welcome to my blog!
I'm surprised at myself for not ranting about this much earlier!
Am I the only one that thought the Star Wars "prequel" Trilogy was a bunch of bullshit? And that Lucas' continuing attempts at modifying the original Trilogy each time they are released is bullshit? I can't wait to read about his changes for the inevitable Blu Ray release - and when I say 'read about' I mean it as I won't be buying the films on Blu Ray.
He butchers the original Trilogy with new SFX and changes sequences for whatever warped reason he has THEN has the gall to release the original films (untouched AND un-remastered for DVD) on yet another DVD release. All of this after saying he wouldn't even release the Star Wars series on DVD in the first place! My, what buckets of money does to change one's mind!
I waited 28 years to see the final installment of Star Wars and what do I get? Crap. Layers and layers of it. It wasn't as bad as the first two prequels that Lucas foisted upon us, but still crap nevertheless. I think it was a HUGE mistake on Lucas' part for waiting 20 years to create the first prequel. One doesn't have the same mindset two decades removed from his creation. And the lame excuse that he was waiting for SFX to get better so he could really make the films he wanted is bullshit! Every time I think about these films, it makes my blood boil! I can't even write a coherent blog entry about it, I'm so pissed off!
That little boy in Phantom Menace. Padme Amidala? Jimmy Smits? I loved Smits in L.A. Law, but in the Star Wars saga?? Trying to connect the original Trilogy with the prequel Trilogy was nonsense! I didn't get it.
The new SFX completely ruined the movies for me. They were too far out - too overused. And speaking of bullshit - was making Darth Vader Luke's father (and Leia his sister) something Lucas pulled out of his ass? Or was it there when he first wrote Star Wars - A New Hope all those many years ago?
And does anyone remember that Star Wars was supposed to be a Trilogy of Trilogy movies? Or am I the only one?
I best stop now - I'm foaming at the mouth and becoming more incoherent as time moves on.
Share your thoughts below! I can't be the only one out there that's this pissed off!
