    Awesome. Now we pretty much really know what Lucas thinks of the people that gave him all that money to fund his Ranch and films.

    Am I the only one that got the point?

    He's saying that because of how long people have been waiting for this, he knows it can't possibly be as good as they're hoping for, so he's not going to worry about it.

    I Think the thing that article missed was that Lucas has always had a fairly so-so reception from movie critics, and has had "old school" fans on his back ever since the internet became a mass-market means of comunicating. So he predicts he's goiung to get flak from these two groups.... well guess what? he pretty much ALWAYS gets flak from these two groups.. and yet his films still make millions

    OTOH "Indiana Jones and the Missplaced Priapism" made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to fall off my chair....

    Go a little deeper. And there's no point in me restating what was already stated quite well.



    And to reiterate, it's a big middle finger to all his fans.

    Um..yeah. I think you're overreacting a bit. The only thing on that page that matters is what's in green. All the blathering in white is indistinguishable from any online fanboy rant trying to dissect the bit in green that, if anything can really be gleaned at all, Gryph came closest...

    It has already been longer since Last Crusade than it was from RotJ to TPM. IF this movie ever actually gets made, it's going to be 19-20 years after the last installment. No way in hell is it ever going to meet expectations. There's an entire online cottage industry waiting to tear Lucas a third asshole over this...hell, it's already started based on one cryptic comment posted out of context.

    I thought the Indian Jones movies where ok but even if they do a new one that stinks I’m not going to feel like my childhood has been raped or anything.
