    I agree. I'm a believer that pretty much ANY director in Hollywood can make a better movie that George Lucas did with those last three. Hayden Christenson was god awful. What a jumbled ugly mess.

    Disney overpaid for a dying franchise, and they'll overpay to have JJA attempt any resuscitation - can you say John Carter 2 (apologies to the late Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote the excellent original John Carter of Mars)? We can say one thing about Lucas: he cashed out at the right time. In any case, Hollywood cannot make a real sci-fi movie, that is clear. Perhaps someone should hire Larry Niven.

    Guess that John Carter thing is a past memory.

     

    Long Disney and enjoying the beat.
