what drove me NUTS is how he passive-aggressively included the real movie as a "special feature" on the dvd release but not the anamorphic version. SUCH a bitch move.

I don't think we can accurately judge Lucas' output without individual building meter data!

i thought it was some obscure nugget about lucasfilm's data output and how that proved the originals didn't exist any more or something

does anyone have a cite to the real individual building meter data from Ep. 2? is that on the DVD?

no matter how much i do like spielberg, i downgrade him for pulling a few of these lucas-style moves in his career, too.

oh no I mean: the prequels had maybe a bit much of sorta ethnic-typed aliens, which I think we've discussed plenty before

lucas and spielberg represent a lot of people in hollywood who apparently think the audience just can't handle moderately edgy shit anymore.

let us not split hairs and have this dumb argument, everyone knows what i meant. can we just keep laughing about the meter thing

Cowardly G. Soundgarden (s1ocki), Wednesday, 15 July 2009 17:56 (5 years ago) Permalink

i have GONE OFF about this before, but what really drives me nuts is that the basic scenario laid out in the prequels is really interesting! but they are still horrible. it's like someone made three really horrible movies out a great novel about a despot's rise to power. except there's no such novel. it's the weirdest thing.

xp yes wtf how can u introduce the idea of SLAVERY in the universe and then not address it ever again

nb I am usually less morally "offended" by ethnic-type aliens (though there's maybe a bit of that with Watto or JarJar) and more just aesthetically offended, like ... please actually make up a fucking alien from your head and not just animate some CGI Central Casting Stock Mildly Offense Ethnic Archetype shit

nabisco, Wednesday, 15 July 2009 17:58 (5 years ago) Permalink

knowing what little i do know about producers via my limited interaction w/them, i can say that they're mostly total retards who get bored by difficult films like 'heat' and 'the departed'

to be fair, swinging close-up IMAX testicles would be marginally funny for 30 seconds or so, and will probably feature in a Baron-Cohen movie at some point

http://kotaku.com/how-lucasarts-fell-apart-1401731043

Kind of enlightening story about how LucasArts the game company fell apart and had multiple amazing-sounding projects fail, mainly due to GL constantly changing his mind.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Friday, 27 September 2013 15:11 (10 months ago) Permalink

Take the case of "Star Wars GTA," for example. During the early days of the 1313 project, some top staff at LucasArts wanted it to be an open-world, Grand Theft Auto-style Star Wars game set on Coruscant, according to two people familiar with that project. It was a fantasy for many on the team, and the thought is enticing—who wouldn’t want to explore and cause mayhem in a world full of seedy bounty hunters and Star Wars crime families?

Looking at their contemporaries at Rockstar and Ubisoft, LucasArts staffers plotted out how many people it would take to build a game like that—hundreds—and how much money it’d cost—millions. That was too much of a risk for the executives at LucasFilm, sources say.

but during a meeting with Star Wars creator George Lucas, he presented a new vision for the Darth Maul title. According to Game Informer, Lucas wanted a "buddy cop-like experience" with Darth Maul and Darth Talon — a Sith Lady separated by more than 170 years of Star Wars fiction from Maul — teaming up as friends.
