Ease up, Snarky Jackasses...



Dammit, you snarky jackasses, cut George Lucas a break.

The prequels are exactly what Lucas always claimed they were: Sci-Fi pulp thrillers along the lines of the serials he grew up watching in the 40s and 50s. Shocker: Flash Gordon was pretty goddamn dumb. It’s not Lucas’ fucking fault if you were too old in 1999 to feel the exact same wonder and excitement at a sci-fi movie that you felt as a pre-adolescent in 1978. The second and third prequels were actually pretty damn good. Just appreciate them for what they are, not the unreal expectations they failed to live up to.
