Documentary film. SHould be interesting and stir up quite a bit of trouble for everyone involved.
wow, dont get me started on the 1,2,3 episodes of star wars some of it was good some was bad. sad to say but if darth maul wasn't in episode I i wouldn't even own the dvd or memorabilia for that episode. but im waiting to see what comes of this.
There were prequels? ell oh ell.
ok. some people like the prequals, and some people hate them. yet isn't this just getting a little silly?

The prequels are part of Star Wars, accept it. They are easy to make fun of, though.
It's like an epic case of beating a dead horse. Sheesh, people need to let it go and enjoy Star Wars for being Star Wars.
I'm not into the endless campaign against George Lucas as if he was evil incarnate but I am looking forward to seeing Gary Kurtz talk about Star Wars, you just don't see enough of him. I think he's a big reason Star Wars and Empire were as good as they were.
There was a special " something ", a magical quality that was present in the original trilogy that was absent in the prequels. I don't think they're bad movies (being gracious), it's just that "something" is missing. I feel that strangely the same thing has happened to Spielberg's work. Compare Close Encounters and Raiders of the Lost Ark with War of the Worlds. Maybe somebody should do a documentary on him too.
The problem with many films in the sci-fi/super hero genre today is that they focus too much on the special effects and less on the characters. The CGI is usually too over the top and it detracts from the story somewhat. I also think the producers feel that if they have all this great CGI, then people don't care as much about the story. That is why they fall short in their offering. One movie (and sequal) that has done a good job of balance in that regard is Batman Returns.
