oldfarthenry: Who else is waiting for Shia LaBeouf to pop out of nowhere and lay a 15" steamer on this?


I'm not going to say that Shia is a great actor, but he's better than most people give him credit for.  Also, Shia is better than Anakin in BOTH kid forms and Jar Jar Binks.  So any steamer laying is going to be from actor/character choices like that and not from Shia, if he even appears anywhere.

mikefinch: He WAS a hero. Lance Armstrong did tons of great stuff too but hes a big freaking douchebag now. Jerry sandusky was thought of as a great coach at one time. Now he's a child molesting dirtbag.

Being awesome at one time doesn't armour you from turning into a giant farkup.


And this is why people hate whiny FARK fanboys.

Comparing George Lucas to a PED abuser and a child abuser.

Newsflash: making changes to movies or making movies you personally don't like doesn't compare to clearly illegal or immoral activities. Sandusky actually raped childhoods. To compare Lucas to that is the height of fanboy dickery.

Christ on a crutch, get out of the basement and get a farking life.

I didnt compare him to those people. I used those cases to illustrate a point that someones past success doesn't mean they cant be crapped on for crappy things they do later.

But way to distort everything and obfuscate my real argument.

Jack off to GL if you wan't but just because he made star wars doesn't mean can't be a complete tool later in his career.

You ARE comparing them. Just read what you wrote. Why mention Sandusky or Armstrong at all then? It was a stupid statement to make, period. Compare him to missteps other filmmakers have made, not criminals and rapists.

He's donated millions to charity (some tool), kept ILM and Skywalker Sound running, and like it or not a whole generation of new SW fans are out there because of the prequels which made $400 million each domestic. Just because you and some whiny fanwanks on the internet don't like what he's done in the past 15 years doesn't make him a bad person.

What have YOU accomplished?

Just because he made star wars doesnt mean people should ignore the fact that he is a shiatty film maker now.

It wasnt stupid - you are just a psycho who cant hear the name of a pedo in a conversation without acting like i made a direct comparison to someone else farking kids.

I cant think of a single film maker who made films as good as Lucas back in the day and who ended up being as bad at it now. You want me to compare other film makers? Sorry, cant think of any who i can use as comparison. I wanted to use 2 people who had great PR at the start of their career and crappy PR at the end of their career to illustrate that being awesome doesn't armour you against crappy stuff you do later in life.

It was stupid to mention them in your post, as if it compared. Again: why mention them at all? There are plenty of filmmakers who started off incredibly strong and stumbled: Francis Ford Coppola, M. Night Shyamalan, Robert Zemeckis, Sylvester Stallone...and that's just off the top of my head. Then again, I'm a film lover, not a psychotic internet fanwank who can't tell the difference between actual evil and making movies you don't like.

Tommy Lee Jones also finds your posts stupid.

Basically any of the books and/or video games. My biggest point of contention with the prequel trilogy, in addition to its horrible suckiness, was that it rewrote a lot of EU material that Lucas had to explicitly approve for it to be published/created. Frankly, the material was a lot better than the shiat which replaced it.

None of them slid as far as George Lucas has. But here is the thing you trolling fart, I never implied he was evil.

I suggested he shouldn't get away scot free because he pulled a few good hands back in the day. Hes film poison now and i can biatch about him all i want. Fanwanks were the ones crying shame in the first place.

You're right. None of them "slid" into making $400 million domestic for each prequel. "Film Poison" indeed. $4 billion for his company to Disney.

I just love how his continued success drives you losers batshiat crazy.

Crazy enough to make stupid posts where mentioning people like Jerry Sandusky in the hopes that people will think the same of Lucas.
