George Lucas: Brilliant director, or egocentric, over-rated overlord of Evil?

I think it’s “egocentric, over-rated overlord of Evil.”

Discuss. 😀

  2. Then your fiancé is a man of good taste in posts and good taste in women! 😉 (Congrats on the engagement, by the way!)

    Thanks for the post, and feel free to come back and partake of some more of my rants. 😀

  3. Willow, Howard the Duck, The Phantom Menace just to name a few. At first I thought Lucas was on par with Speilberg, Zemeikis, Cameron and other visioneries. Now I think he is a delporable fim maker. You cannot however deny what he a brought to filmaking in terms of techincal advacements. ILM, Skywalker sound and PIXAR ( formely a division of ILM before being sold to disney) Altough he has become a horrible filmaker, hes compaines have added other directors to see their vision through. I cant believe how good American Graffiti and Star Wars are considering he directed them. My vote OVERRATED.

    • Yeah, it’s very telling that for most Star Wars fans, “The Empire Strikes Back” is the best of the series — an installment that Lucas neither wrote nor directed. He’s certainly a visionary in terms of the use of technology, and has a great imagination — it’s the part about realizing his vision, however, that’s perhaps best left to other film makers. Thanks for commenting! 🙂
