What I'd like him to say:

"I'm sorry for all the childhoods I wrecked with The Phantom Menace and subsequent 5 years of crap that has come out of the Star Wars Franchise.

I've decided to hire some good writers to help me write the next film and I won't be directing it either, I'm thinking of maybe given Daron Aronofsky or Guillermo Del Toro a shot at it, David Fincher is also in the running. In fact I think I'm retiring, spend some time with my kids, lose some weight, take some Community College writing courses.

Except for some storyboard approvals I'll probably be removing myself from the whole thing.

Oh, and Han shot first. I don't know what the hell was I thinking..."

Re:What I would like him to say (5, Funny)

Deraj DeZine (726641) | more than 10 years ago | (#8740536)

From this interview [somethingawful.com] :
  • Lucas realized that fans simply couldn't get enough of the Jedi, so the Super Special Edition is guaranteed to have at least one Jedi in every frame of the film. "We want to just totally Jedi the fuck out of the audience." he says. "There will be Ewok Jedi, bantha Jedi, shark Jedi, and even a Jedi knight who that's made up of other, smaller Jedi."
  • The obvious love triangle between C-3PO, R2D2, and Jawa #2 will be more thoroughly explored.
  • The famous cantina has been changed into a barber shop which is run by several quirky and humorous black men. "I realize that Star Wars hasn't appealed to negroids in the past," Lucas explains, "and I blame myself. I mean there was Lando, and that's it. While Billy Dee Williams was probably the smoothest man alive, it simply wasn't enough. Before settling on the barber shop, I had considered cranking the brightness of the film down dramatically to make everyone darker, but the guys in the editing room don't let me touch the controls anymore."

    At this point, he once again waved off my concerns about the scene in question ripping off of another film, and he threatened to have my "memory banks erased" if I brought up the subject one more time.
  • Han Solo never shoots. Ever. In the original release of the first Star Wars film, Han distracted a bounty hunter that was after him and then shot the bounty hunter dead before he could even make a move. In the Special Edition, however, the bounty hunter shot at Han first, making it look like Solo killed the bounty hunter purely in self defense. This seemingly small change belittled one of the core qualities that made Han cool in the first place in many fans' minds, but Lucas feels otherwise. "I think the greatest quality of Han's character is actually his striped pants. Every time he shoots or talks, it takes the moviegoer's focus away from the pants. Removing every single blaster shot that Han fired is such an obvious decision that I'm embarassed I didn't think of it sooner."
  • Stormtroopers no longer close their eyes when firing their blasters. The trilogy is now a single thirty-seven minute film.

joke (1)

fireduck (197000) | more than 10 years ago | (#8740426)

here are some paraphrased comments "lucas" makes:

re han shooting first: steven and i haven't had time to go back and fix the unheroic actions of indiana jones yet

re luke's death star run: one way to improve the scene is to include gungan pilots. and my daughters alerted me to the fact that at college they desconstructed this scene and found it to be very much like the "oedipal abortion of his father's dark creation"

can you actually imagine the same person who wrote and directed the last 2 pieces of star wars crap using the phrase "oedipal abortion"? ok, perhaps thats the wrong question. On second thought, I think that particular line is a clear reference to Lucas aborting his movies in the prequel before they were even metaphorically born.

All you ever wanted to know about a dog's dick (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#8740226)

Looks

What you see between a dog's legs and under his belly is not the dog's penis but what is called a sheath. The sheath is a fold of skin that forms a covering around the penis. It is basically an enlongated version of the foreskin in humans. The sheath can be covered with fur or can be bare skin depending on the breed of the dog. Inside the sheath is the dog's penis. Its shape is basically cylindrical with a cone tip and its color is somewhere between pink and red. The opening of the penis (i.e. peehole) is cylindrical, unlike a man's which is a slit. Inside the penis is a bone that runs the length of the penis. When a dog's penis is erect, near the base of a dog's penis (near his balls) is the knot. It is a fist-size enlargenment near the base of the shaft that is used to hold the dog's penis in the female's vagina during copulation to increase rates of fertility.

Taste

To get an idea of what it tastes like to suck a dog's dick, after taking a shower lick your wrist or your hand or some part of your body you'd consider clean (and not a part you'd consider filthy like a dog's penis). A dog's dick tastes about the same, but the texture is much smoother. Actually smooth is an understatement.. it is very slick much like a popsicle and as much fun to suck. But, be careful! The entire penis is very sensitive, as sensitive as a man's glans.

Now that was some free speech.

ackthpt (218170) | more than 10 years ago | (#8740227)

To my surprise I've found I frequently go through these Directors/Producers commentaries. Some are worthless, but a few have stood out as gems:

Mel Brooks on Blazing Saddles

(?) Animal House (regarding the addition to the cast of Donald Sutherland)

(?) Il Postino (regarding the poestry of Pablo Neruda and the sacrifice of Massimo Troisi)

I'm not sure I'll care anymore for Lucas' comments than those of Star Wars "Fans" whinging about how bad the other episodes are (1. Saw it 2. Complained about how awful it was 3. Bought the DVD anyway), but good to know it's there, should I have nothing better to watch.

Don't forget David Fincher's deluxe editions of Se7en and Fight Club. Not only does he include a cast/director commentary, but a craft-ortiented commentary with the cinematographer, audio mixers, etc.

Roger Ebert's commentaries on Dark City and Citizen Kane are essentials as well.

And finally, the Lord of the Rings commentaries are all great.

When moderators are given access, they are given a number of points of influence to play with. Each comment they moderate deducts a point. When they run out of points, they are done serving until next time it is their turn.

Moderation takes place by selecting an adjective from a drop down list that appears next to comments containing descriptive words like "Flamebait" or "Informative." Bad words will reduce the comment's score by a single point, and good words increase a comment's score by a single point. All comments are scored on an absolute scale from -1 to 5.

8. If you look real close in this sky car scene in "Phantom Menace", you will see Bruce Willis, and his girlfriend who wears only duct tape.
7. Here's a little secret: that 5th movie I made was supposed to be "The Clown Wars". Damn secretary didn't type it in right. I was so looking foward to Bozo vs Pennywise!
6. ..and the film series will have its big climax scene at a volcano! It's my original idea, I tell you!
5. "Phantom Edit", my ass
4. This battle with giant elephant-like things. No one has ever written or thought about it before. Just watch!
3. The hot grits scene with Natalie Portman will be on the director's cut

For those who are thinking about getting these clips, don't!!! It's all a ploy -- the media's way of testing their Omniscience Protocol. Once you play it, something in the background will find your list of mp3's and BAM, you and your machine are toast.

Besides, I've checked it for the evil bit and sure enough, it's got Palpatine written all over it. If that doesn't stop you, maybe this will: that thing's got a subliminal message within asking you to vote Jar-Jar into office this coming election. That and ask you to mail-order some skywalker ranch wine.

Background? (2, Funny)

Can you hear the Doritos that he's shoving into his face as he watches, or do they edit that out? What about the $100 bills he's wiping his ass with? Any of that? I'm just curious.

On the main page of starwars.com under the movies section subtitle of "The Creeping Fear" has been entered for Episode III.

...Don't even know what this is, or if it's real. But I already don't like it. I'm sure that if it's good, Lucas'll redo it in a few years with uber cool VR technology, and it'll suck. *sigh*

"Jar Jar? Ah, yes. We first met during auditions, and our eyes met and it was like sparks were flying, but only we could see them. I met up with him after the auditions were over and asked him out for coffee. We really hit it off, you know? There is just something about how his ears flow in the wind and his accent is so charming...I just can't help myself. We really haven't figured out sex, yet, but I haven't been happier than during these wonderful years so I don't mind. Jar Jar is the best."

The guy doing Lucas on the voice over sounds like a total 15 year old geek, it's not even vaguely adult. But his cadence and comments are pretty funny, although it attempts realism a little too much. The whole "my daughter learned this was an oedipal conflict at Columbia" thing was funny, as was the line "We'd like to remaster Indiana Jones swordfight scene, because we didn't want to show Harrison hiding behind a gun." was pretty funny.

Nothing really classic, like the guys who did a spoof on Cops with Stormtrooper outfits. Anybody know if those videos can be found?

Go check out the fanfilms section of theforce.net. The Cops parody is called Troops. Classic.

The stormtrooper spoof can be found under the fan film section on theforce.net.

Really is a great spoof.

Step 1: www.google.com [google.com]

Step 2: Type: "Troops star wars"

Step 3: Click "I'm Feeling Lucky"

(there's a reason people like to say "google is your friend"...)

Summary of the three clips (3, Informative)

BRSQUIRRL (69271) | more than 10 years ago | (#8740480)

(1) The Han vs. Greedo scene in Episode IV: Han didn't shoot first...no hero would hide behind his blaster like that. The original scene will never be seen again as long as Lucas is alive.

(2) The Death Star trench attack in IV: Lucas goes off on some bizarre tangent about the symbolism in this scene, claiming that it actually represented an Oedipal desire by Luke to distance himself from his father by attacking the trench, which represents his mother's birth canal. The act of destroying the Death Star via the port in the trench was a figurative "abortion" of his father's evil plans. I swear I'm not making this up.

(3) The "I am your father" scene from Episode V: Mark Hamill's scream was too girly and had to be dubbed. The harness he had to wear while hanging from the bridge was very uncomfortable.

What he should really say is ... (1)

Augusto (12068) | more than 10 years ago | (#8740518)

... how he ignores the incessant whining of all the "fans" who are always complaining about his movies yet keep paying him for everything that he produces.

Truly, I'd like to know the trick, because goodness gracious it's so annoying to have every other moron out there come up with the "original" idea to post how much they hate the prequels and how they have spoilt their life and childhood memories. Or how about those geniouses with their Jar Jar jokes, we can never have enough Jar Jar jokes, can't we?

He probably loves these type of people, after all, they make him rich even though they don't like what he does! Maybe he should share the secret, how to make money off of morons who hate your product. I'd buy that book.

vonklempt01 (767577) | more than 10 years ago | (#8740641)

George Lucas has lost his mind. I cannot believe what he says. Baby freedom? Daikini babies? He talks about willow, his daughters and a bunch more nonsense. I say I was swearing off Star Wars, but I already have Episode 3 tix pre-ordered.

Commentary (0)

Some of Lucas' comments are pretty out there. Still, he remains the godfather of greatness!

Re: Obviously Not Lucas's Voice (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#8740708)

For those of you who really listened closely to those clips, the commentator's voice is way too young to be Lucas... not to mention the drole comments that are being made. Rip on Lucas all you want, but at least recognize when the man is actually putting his foot in his mouth or not... Someone had way too much free time on their hands to record that dreck!

This is like saying that 5 minutes of DVD commentary from the Simpsons DVD Season 4 has been released.....anyone who shows a vested interest in George Lucas bragging about his "space" movie truely has stepped over to the "Dark Side"
