Listening In On A Genius Now Gone Mad...


Want to see the inner workings of how "Raiders of the Lost Ark" got made?

Then go here to download the 125 page transcript of the story conference between George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Lawrence Kasdan. Very cool, very interesting stuff.

A wonderful time when the man could do no wrong and hadn't started on the destructive path which tarnished his image.

No, I'm not talking about Eisner...

This is OLD news. That transcript has been floating around the web now for years. Slow news day at It Ain't Cool and Bluesky...

Just goes to show how out of touch with reality Lucas has become. If only Crystal Dud was even a fraction of the film that Raiders was...

Mola Ram, you keep this up and I'm gonna have to start charging you rent...

Hehe.

Mola Ram said...

Honor, you keep posting stories about Lucas and he's gonna start charging you licensing fees.

Honor Hunter said...

I'll just pass the cost on to you...

Yeah, let's see:

20+ stories in the first week of March and he finally post an article about something with Lucas in it and he expresses how he doesn't trust Lucas' instincts so some of you say he hates Lucas. Sigh. He could go weeks and not say anything and you guys would be upset. Just because he doesn't lick George's boots doesn't mean he hates him. Heck, I don't think he hates Eisner. Now Pressler, that might be another matter.

But lighten up, people.

I hate what Lucas has done to Star Wars. He's still hooked on the gee-whiz technology available today and totally overlooks the importance of characters and story. I for one COULD NOT CARE LESS about Anakin Skywalker. He's gonna be Darth Vader! Why the frick should I care what he does prior to that transformation, especially since he's far far FAR more interesting as a villian than as the bland cardboard hero Lucas has crafted? I will never watch Lucas' SW stuff until he brings back Luke, Leia, Han and Chewbacca, even if it means more CGI. Until then he just go kiss a wookiee.

I am a huge fan of the whole Indiana series. I am excited to read the transcript. If anyone wants to give a bad review of the newer movies,(Indiana and Star Wars) I totally agree.
