whatever you say


You know, I’d gradually _lost_  most of the respect I had for George Lucas, that I once had as a kid or teen or early 20s person. The more films I see, like some of the 60s war movies about WW2 and also Akira Kurosawa movies, I see how much Georgey borrowed from them when making the original trilogy. And after seeing the second trilogy I started to wonder if he’d had any hand in writing the screenplays for the originals at all. My theory was that Joseph Campbell wrote them, but I have no proof.

Anyway, it’s interesting to read this news on a film he’s put together all by himself about the African-American pilots in WW2. Good for him. I hope it’s a success. I hope the dialog’s a bit better that when Samuel L Jackson was talking to Yoda. I’ll go see it when I’m back in Australia for the brief visit I’m heading for next week. That is, if it’s released then.
