How dare someone else earn lots of money!

ignite ice: How dare someone else earn lots of money!


It doesn't bother me that he earned lots of money - heck, for the original trilogy I say more power to him. However, I for one was really surprised at just how much it was. Also, just how much of it came from the horrible, horrible prequels.

Movies, toys (eventually 20 - 25% interest in Kenner-Hasbro, yes George makes money when your little brother buys GI Joe) anything/everything that has Star Wars in it's name. Even that Ipecac substitute Disney musical. And the Tauntaun sleeping bag. If it says it is an officially licensed Star Wars product, then George gets his cut. Col. Sanders had the right idea.

You know, I'd just like to point out... and I may be the only person on this site who's willing to say this- George Lucas did not rape my childhood. At all.
Yes, I actually enjoyed the prequel trilogy. It wasn't as good as the original, sure, but still enjoyable.

Complaints, statements about my manhood, and threats against my life may be directed to your nearest brick wall.

He makes way too much. He should turn over 90%, to the Federal Government, for redistribution.

Stalking people is wrong. Call me down in a thread fine, follow me around is illegal. It's called "stalking".

I don't understand the hate at all. I liked all of the franchise although I really did not care for Darth Maul for some reason.

As for LUcas, he has done what every one of us has dreamed of.... made enough money that he can wipe his ass with $1,000 bills.
 
2010-09-20 9:53:29 PM  
The guy made one incredibly awesome movie, and a few others that I liked a lot...I've got no problem with him.

They hate it when their rich liberals icons are exposed..:) Let's see what Sean Penn makes. I swear, he's related to Vladimir Lenin.

He has pledged to give the majority of his wealth to educational charities, along with 37 other billionaires.

Good for him, he gave me entertainment and cherished childhood memories at a reasonable price.

He did it millions of times.

The only thing he raped was Indiana Jones. The newer Star Wars movies were just mediocre.

I agree. He dun goofed. Consequences will never be the same.

You can call my buddy, he's a Lt. at the 35th precinct for the Regional Cyber Police... just tell them Cubansaltyballs said "Blue Horseshoe said you dun goofed"

We never bought the Star Wars toys.

Instead we built a somewhat-full-size Millenium Falcon + Rebel Base combo in an entire back yard and played in it all summer.

We didn't have jack squat to build it with so we used scrap lumber from new houses and dug part of it into the ground.

Endless fun.

total cost $0.0

/we did have a lightsaber duel that ended up with one PISSED OFF dad who was less than Jedi that day. Boom, headshot :)

//that's kind of where we had to start thinking about taking it down

There needs to be a rule of the Internet that stipulates the fact that in every Star Wars thread over 15 posts, there will be a cry babby fight about something.

You enjoyed watching child rape. There are laws about such things.
 
2010-09-20 10:09:37 PM  
Star Wars does very little for me so I don't give a fark.

The prequels were crap.

crab66: The only thing he raped was Indiana Jones. The newer Star Wars movies were just mediocre.


The new Indiana Jones movie was a Indiana Jones movie. You may of not liked the story but the acting and the direction was excellent. A good popcorn throwaway movie - which is what one expects from it.

There was just so much technically bad about the prequels. Its like it was written and directed by a first year film student.

Well, there are at least two of us, then. I enjoyed and continue to enjoy the Star Wars universe, and hope to do so for the rest of my life.

I do find the Internet's irrational hatred of the man amusing, though.

"A New Hope" rocked the hizzy
"The Empire Strikes Back" was pretty good though we'd seen most of it before.

Everything else was 100% cashing in on previous success.

/really, Luke and Vader should have both died at the Death Star but they were needed alive for the sequels.
