I'm not sure if this will be long or short. I just need to get it off my chest before I get lazy again. Before I go easy on Lucas again.
I'm not completely void of guilt in this. I mean - I am bound to eventually see everything Star Wars related. It's like that first taste of the
fix. You are never that high again and you crave more. But you see, George Lucas handed out some great stuff with the original Star wars trilogy. I
think allot of us are suffering from the new supply.
Those movies had magic in them. Remember? Real color. The world felt lived in. It felt like something we knew we would see. Something familiar but
still completely foreign. I was very young when I first saw Star wars and I still get flashes of that now. Those movies have magic in them.
Oh "C.G.I." - you are like a screwdriver that’s being shoved into the wrong screws. A great tool but over used. Don't you remember how much
that puppeteer put in to that puppet? Why can't you just make the mouth look better and take the black lines away? You are only a compliment. Why do
you have to be everything? Why do you have to be EVERYTHING? There is a big difference. That little kid in me knows the difference.
I fantasised for twenty years between Jedi and the new trilogy about what might happen next. Star wars was cool. So many possibilities. Star wars was
dirty and lived in. None of the new stuff feels lived in George.
Just For whatever it matters outside all the important stuff going on in the world.
A poem I think fits from one of the masters:
“Many loved before us, I know that we are not new,
in city and in forest they smiled like me and you,
but now it's come to distances and both of us must try,
your eyes are soft with sorrow,
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye.”
