    To be fair, he produced Red Tails and Strange Magic, both of which had long development periods.

    I would like to see him go back to pre-Star Wars avant-gardism. His work seemed most alive in the Prequels when he was goofing around with cross-cutting, montage, concept shots (1:56), and might-as-well-be silent film, which is how he started:



    Forgiving all his errors, I still think that shot earns Williams' pseudo-Wagnerian bombast.
    I'll give George Lucas this. He directed the hell out of that ruminations scene. Strangely, the most affecting piece of that trilogy had no dialog at all.

    These are really good clips but holy moly did I forget how much I dislike CGI Yoda.

    Yoda as a whole I hated. About the same as Jar Jar Binks actually.

    I still remember when there were claims that Lucas envisioned the 7/8/9 trilogy ending with Han and Leia finding and colonizing a planet with their children and calling it “Earth”.

    I've followed Star Wars for years and years and have never heard that.

    I'm pretty sure that was a Battlestar Galactica joke.

    Pretty funny. I lost part of what was happening at around 16 seconds, but most impressive.

    It's remarkable to me how Lucas can have such great taste in one sequence and such abysmal taste elsewhere (e.g. any creature in any film he had anything to do with whatsoever that's CGI animated).

    Has NOBODY pointed out the hilarious irony that Alden Ehrenreich was cast in this upcoming disaster of a major motion picture despite not being able to act a lick, when this was his literally his exact character in the Coen Bros' Hail, Caesar?

    We're just all quietly thinking it and praying we're not reading too much meta into it.

    I mean, in Hail Caesar! when he wasn't supposed to be giving a horrible performance I thought he was rather good. I'm puzzled how he could be truly bad.

    He's not bad. At all. I've seen him in other films as well, and he's a perfectly fine actor. I've found all claims that he's supposedly a terrible actor to be ridiculous and utter nonsense.

    He holds his own against Ralph Fiennes in a comedic scene that's all about nuanced performance.

    The stuff I read didn’t make it sound like he’s BAD.

    It sounded more like he was struggling with Lord and Miller’s tendency to take everything off-scriptnand go with improvisational comedy.

    I finally saw Rogue One.

    Did not like it.

    I'm wracking by brain trying to figure out why people like these new Star Wars movies. They're not good.
