It just stole every thought about the whole thing I've had right out of my head. I know everyone else will highly disagree, but I found that lone person out there who seems to view things as I do. lol
I agree with the article as well, almost word by word
I love the PT, for all it's faults, I found them enjoyable, but I don't think they're better than the OT, not close
The first movie I remember watching was Empire and then ROTJ (I must have been around 7 or 8) I love the ewoks back them, It wasn't until I was 12 and heard about the SE (1996) that my love as a fan was truly ignited, that was the first time I saw ANH, I used to rent the movies many times until the next year when the SE came out and I was able to experience it on a big screen... and then I also loved the SE.
It doesn't matter to me that PT sucked, I loved TPM as much as I loved ROTJ...even though I hated the first time I saw AOTC, I hated the thought of watching that movie again, I've since warmed up to it (still it's the worse of all the PT movies), I hate having to watch Hayden instead of Shaw (I cringed everytime I see that) and once I have the BR, I will hate everytime I have to hear Vader shriek.
... but despite all those changes, I still have my memories of me watching the movies on my VCR, and then experience it for the first time in a big screen, my childhood memories are still as I remember (I never understood the "raping memories" expression
... anyways, I can still pop in the O OT on DVD any time
I said it once before, I think this is his work, his property and sadly he can change it the way he sees, just as he can give the guidelines about what could be created by others... and that's the truth
Lucas isn't a good director, I think every actor that worked with him have said that, he doesn't know how to direct people, but he is a visionary... he just need people around him to help him realize that vision... too bad it seems the people around him now are too afraid to tell him when he's going too far... he needs someone like Kershner
