    Feb 9, 2012, 8:54 PM - George Lucas says Han never shot first, you were just confused #1

    Okay, of ALL the things George Lucas has done, to me, NOW he's gone too far! He might as well say we, the public, are stupid and we just saw what we wanted to see!???

    Is he really this out of touch?

    Between the Blu-Rays themselves and the recent string of "announcements" Lucas has made, it kind of baffles me how...odd...he really is.

    I thought the same thing. If this isn't a joke, he's gone senile and totally lost it. Someone should really pull SW away from him if this is the case.

    He must be really bored if he has nothing better than do than make statements like this and I wonder how many fans this ticks off.

    Jesus.... What a complete nut. I think he has some kind of parasite in his head or something. He's becoming the Michael Jackson of the film world. Gets ****ing crazier as he gets older.

    It almost sounds like he believes the Special Editions are the only SW, cause of his statement that he was just fixing up the part where Greedo shoots first but it wasn't that good and you couldn't tell he was firing first.

    Marcia Lucas. It was really that George became Darth Vader about the time he built that ranch. Insulated ever since.

    The Secret History of Star Wars

    And yes, I just read that interview also. George is trying to make us believe what he said. He knows he's gotta wave his hands around like some Jedi to get us to believe it, right?!

    So...does this count as "Jedifyfing" since his link is based on, and links to, the HR article posted by Alienscollection.com?

    That's a great little piece of writing there. "Indeed, it was only the audience’s own bloodlust that led them astray and left them so confused for so many years—a bloodlust that festered into their ravenous need to set jaws upon George Lucas every time he tries to make his work a little more innocent and magical. Fortunately, all it took was a wider shot and a grafted-on cartoon laser beam to save future generations from wandering down that same dark path, which leads only to anger, hatred, and in forthcoming editions, a nice periwinkle garden." - haw!

    Let's see a diehard defend Lucas for this. Oh please let's.

    He lives outside of San Francisco, I guess it shouldn't be a surprise.

    Oh boy was I ever confused as a seven year old!

    Han never shot first at all! They both must have shot at the exact same time (which of course produced the sparky explosion through the table) and for a wee second we "thought" that Han may have bought the farm...

    But he got off a shot a split second after Greedo fired his blaster! The sparky explosion was actually produced by both Greedo and Han firing their blasters!

    Man! 35 years later and I finally get it now! Boy do I feel stupid!

    Thank you Uncle George!

    You know that scene in "Raiders" where the carload of Nazi's goes careening over that very high cliff and they tumble out one by one as they plummet? That's now the perfect metaphore for George Lucas's mind.

    The person writing this thing looks like a Lucas Film spin doctor.

    And yes, I just read that interview also. George is trying to make us believe what he said. He knows he's gotta wave his hands around like some Jedi to get us to believe it, right?!
    So she made him, and she got the Oscar.
    For editing Star Wars no less.
    No wonder he is trying to change everything about SW. When he looks at that film he sees his ex wife.

    Thanks for posting that on Marcia, it explains just about everything.
    Imagine what the prequels would have been like if she was involved.

    So, basically, Lucas has ruined his movies in later edits because he's can't deal with the fact that he's emotionally stunted, which also resulted in his wife leaving him? I guess that explains that scene between Padme and Anakin in Revenge of the Sith where he damn near killed her and their children because he thought she betrayed him. But it doesn't make up for the changes, though.
