A subject about which I've felt quite strongly for the longest time, watching this documentary made me realize how hard being George Lucas must be. The term "Heavy is the Head That Wears the Crown" ran through my head several times as I realized Star Wars was a juggernaut that completely steamrolled Lucas' life as well as any potential his career may have had. For as geeky as it gets, it tells both sides well.
I am firmly in the category of people who find the special editions and prequels a betrayal (HAN SHOT FIRST!!!!), so this film is preaching to the converted but Star Wars fans love to rant about this subject over all others. I am genuinely interested how Lucas moved from a fresh and respected director in the 70s to a billgerent old man today.
I was a really fan of Star Wars but i was a poor guy so i escape to the goodies stuff. The film is interesting but too short to explain sort of things. I was not of this generation who had seen born Star Wars but i understand some fans. I think this documentary is not finish so i put 2 stars
I too have that unfortunate habit of turning into a curmudgeon when anything I loved as a kid gets rebooted (that god awful attempt at updating Thundercats for example) but sometimes you just gotta shut your stupid fucking mouth and move on with your life, these people are a prime example of that.
It's my house and if I want to paint my house green but everyone thinks I should paint it red, it's still my house and I'm going to paint it Jar Jar.
Loved that line. But it's a great movie starts off explaining why we all hate Lucas so much but then transitions into why we love him. We hate him so much but if it wasn't for him we would have nothing that we love so much.
