    Disney makes quality space movies. Remember that classic, The Black Hole.

    The Black Hole is one of those "so bad it's good" classics.

    Mara Jade and Grand Admiral Thrawn? Life isn't fair enough to allow that to happen.
    Right you are.

    I don't know. I tried re-watching it a couple years ago and it was more like "so boring I'm falling asleep."

    Ouch. The man only created the most popular movie series ever -- movies that captured the imagination of generations of filmgoers, ingrained themselves into popular culture worldwide and changed how Hollywood worked, from financing to special effects to marketing.

    Star Wars, which Lucas directed, was the 8th largest grossing movie -- in 1997!

    True, but he works better when someone can help mold his story, it's not a coincidence that Empire, considered the best of the lot, was directed by someone else with others helping write it.

    Lucas brought us this great romantic line:
    "I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything's soft, and smooth"

    Lucas is a brilliant dude, but he's big-idea and visual guy that really doesn't have a sense for the written or spoken word. Empire is night-and-day better than even the original Star Wars in terms of pacing and dialogue, and it's like comparing Picasso to finger-painting when you compare Empire to the prequels.

    Really the only thing that saved the prequels from being complete, unmitigated disasters is that Lucas called in Tom Stoppard to do an uncredited re-write of the script for Revenge of the Sith.

    My mother gave me a Black Hole action figure for Christmas one year. It was Harry Booth, played by Ernest Borgnine.

    She thought I could play along with my Star Wars figures.

    I used him as the experiment doll, putting him in the freezer and blowong him up with firecrackers.

    That was the worst figure ever.

    I hope Disney can bring in some writers and actors who can make the next films enjoyable. Part of the charm of the original trilogy was the interplay of the characters. Han, Luke, Leia, Obi Wan, Chewbacca, and Yoda were great and Harrison Ford, Mark Hammill, Carrie Fisher, and Alex Guinness were perfect for their roles. Even Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian was great. Meanwhile, the writing for Episodes I-III was so bad, not even Samuel L. Jackson seemed able to breath life into his character.

    I'm optimistic because I like what Disney did with the Pirates of the Caribbean and the Marvel films.

    I saw the other day that Lawrence Kasdan s rumored to co-write. That's very good news -- and not just because he's from WV and directed Mumford (although I loved Mumford.)

    The worst ever Bond movies were Diamonds Are Forever (1971), A View To A Kill (1985) and Die Another Day (2003).
    I loved Star Wars, I liked Empire Strikes Back, I thought Return of the Jedi was okay--and there hasn't been a decent Star Wars movie since. There hasn't been a George Lucas movie of any kind worth watching in over 20 years IMHO.
