{{Quote|A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, people made movies with people in them, and some of those movies made sense. Then something happened, and the people started to vanish from the movies, along with most of the sense. For a while, the spectacle was fun to observe, but slowly the pictures tipped into insanity, or, at any rate, into the hypnotically bad. The joke was that the number of viewers willing to submit to such hypnosis went not down but through the roof. Historians of this phenomenon are now agreed that the change became irrevocable shortly before the end of the second millennium, with a George Lucas film entitled ''Star Wars: Episode I&mdash;The Phantom Menace''. [&hellip;] ''The Phantom Menace'' is at once childishly unknowing and rotten with cynicism.

{{Quote|The general opinion of ''Revenge of the Sith'' seems to be that it marks a distinct improvement on the last two episodes.... True, but only in the same way that dying from natural causes is preferable to crucifixion.

Brendan I. Koerner (+2)Edit

"If fashion is any indicator, the Rebels are right to be afraid. Has any Star Wars character ever exuded more presence than Darth Vader, with his knee-high boots and unapologetically massive codpiece? And then there's Darth Maul and his spiky, body-mod tattoo chic. The typical Jedi, by contrast, sports a bland brown robe and a blank expression. You can guess who had better luck with the ladies on Jabba's pleasure barge."

"Eight million dollars will either bring to life the greatest comic-book fantasy of all-time or slide oozily down the cistern of commercial miscalculations...."

"A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, people made movies with people in them, and some of those movies made sense. Then something happened, and the people started to vanish from the movies, along with most of the sense. For a while, the spectacle was fun to observe, but slowly the pictures tipped into insanity, or, at any rate, into the hypnotically bad. The joke was that the number of viewers willing to submit to such hypnosis went not down but through the roof. Historians of this phenomenon are now agreed that the change became irrevocable shortly before the end of the second millennium, with a George Lucas film entitled Star Wars: Episode I—The Phantom Menace. […] The Phantom Menace is at once childishly unknowing and rotten with cynicism. I would call it the disappointment of the decade except that, along with many other people, I had a sneaking fear that it would turn out this way. What is this? Crap. Say it out loud: Crap. And will it make the magic billion dollars? You bet."

Anthony Lane (+2)Edit

"The general opinion of Revenge of the Sith seems to be that it marks a distinct improvement on the last two episodes.... True, but only in the same way that dying from natural causes is preferable to crucifixion. So much here is guaranteed to cause either offense or pain, starting with the 1920s leather football helmet that Natalie Portman suddenly dons for no reason, and rising to the continual horror of Ewan McGregor's accent. 'Another happy landing'—or, to be precise, 'anothah heppy lending'—he remarks, as Anakin parks the front half of a burning starcruiser on a convenient airstrip. […] It takes a vulgarian genius such as Lucas to create a landscape in which actions can carry vast importance but no discernible meaning, in which style is strangled at birth by design, and in which the intimate and the ironic, not the Sith, are the principal foes to be suppressed. […] I keep thinking of the rueful Obi-Wan Kenobi, as he surveys the holographic evidence of Anakin's betrayal. 'I can't watch anymore,' he says. Wise words, Obi-Wan, and I shall carry them in my heart."

"There's an old story that the only direction George Lucas would give was 'Faster, more intense.' So, one day on set, I was giving Carrie this long, drawn-out, pretentious direction. She just nodded and nodded and I came to an end. She just looked at me for a second, and with perfect timing she said, 'So, faster and more intense?'""

"George Lucas is completely focused on what he is doing, and so am I. He is also meticulous with his work and his films clearly convey that. He has created and has become a recognized brand name, and so have I. Being a developer means I have to be thorough, but that can also apply to film. Our respective fields are different, but the foundations for success are the same."
