    George Lucas Donation To Put Him Amongst History's Greatest Philanthropists

    George Lucas' donation of over half the $4 billion from the Disney deal will see him considered amongst the most generous philanthropists of all time. After announcing that he had sold LucasFilm to Disney, a spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter that Lucas has expressed his intention to donate the majority of the proceeds to his philanthropic endeavours.

    Out of order.

    The first three movies released are actually the middle in series of 9 stories

    4. Star Wars - A New Hope
    5. Empire Strikes Back
    6. Return of the Jedi

    were released as the first three so most thought they were Episodes 1, 2 and 3.

    When they talked of the prequels, I thought ok, this could be cool. But after seeing the movies, it wasnt that they were bad, they were handholding storytelling. Part of the intrique of 4,5,6 was not knowing all the details on how things came to be.

    Basically = OVEREXPLAINING

    Now, they are going to jump ahead to episodes 7, 8 and 9.

    To what, avail?


    In summary - 9 episodes released out of order

    4, 5, 6 - - 1, 2, 3 - - 7, 8, 9

    The prequels were very visually appealing. Cool fights, cool lightsaber battles, lots of nice looking CGI.

    Story? Plot? Acting? Character development?

    All missing. Everything involving those categories was so awful it makes me cringe. Such bad storytelling, and some of the worst character development I have seen in a big budget movie. I don't even want to go into Anakin's "Turn" to the darkside. He goes from good to murdering children in the span of like 10 minutes.

    I could go into a very long and detailed review about why all 3 prequels were so bad, but someone has already done it for me.

    If you liked the Star Wars Prequels, you should still enjoy the 3 movie reviews 'cause they are filled with some pretty good humor. If you hated the 3 prequels as movies, you will not only laugh your butt off, but agree with nearly every point made. These reviews dissect the movies amazingly. Pretty much points out near everything that was awful about them.

    No, Lucas wasn't interested in any of that. And it's why I'm glad he's passed the Star Wars universe on to people who will be able to integrate those essential elements into the next trilogy.

    Exactly! A ridiculous rush-job that completely alienates the viewer from having any sort of emotional attachment to the character's fall.

    It happens so quickly and so unbelievably that you simply tune out and resign yourself to 'here it comes'.

    And why? So we can see a child podracing at 500 miles per hour and flying starships while 'accidentally' saving the day. Good lord!

    Thanks for posting these, I'll check them out later when I have the time.

    I am sure EVERYONE reading this DID NOT know that.


    Was that really necessary. So petty.


    Obviously, we both like the movies and the stories. Some people are just obnoxious because it makes them feel good.

    Childish.
