WHAT IF “STAR WARS: EPISODE I” WAS GOOD? (Belated Media)
I would have loved that movie.
…Fuck, that would’ve made a goddamn awesome movie.
Lucas has gotten to the point where nobody’s really willing to say “no” to him.
He needs to hire someone whose entire job it is to say “no” at the right time. “No, George, no, no George, no, no, no - yes - no, no George…”
He used to have someone like that. His name was Steven Spielberg.
Such a shame. Such a wasted opportunity. This is why it’s important to listen to other people’s input, George Lucas. There are plenty of writers and producers out there who could have helped you tighten this up into something great, but nooooo.
