    Wow, no more scintillating Lucas dialog? No more artfully crafted romantic scenes? No more long shots of people slowly discussing that they have little time and must move quickly, while strolling a short distance very slowly?

    One of the best producers, but sorry not such a great writer or director in my personal view.
    The guy deserves credit for how he got in the business, and for bringing us such fantastic ideas that never would have happened without him.
    I also wanted to add, as a pioneer in the business he had few peers.
    For Lucas to remake the film about the Tuskegee Airmen and retire in protest over the studios unwillingness to finance it he shows some true grit.

    True, I can't imagine what movies or the industry would look like without him.

    Hollywood deserves to lose him.

    From what i saw in his last interview with Jon Stewart is looked a bit fed up with the industry/market side of thing just and wanted to do his thing, period.

    Lord knows he has more than enough money to fund his own projects.

    Lucas "assumes too much" when he says it's because of the all black cast.

    They don't know how to market the movie because they've forgotten how to market a movie with quality content.

    I fail to find a slap in the face. I don't get why any fans would be upset at Star Wars characters appearing in adds. I liked them personally.

    Well that sucks. I know he must have a load of cash but still if film making is in your blood, it's going to hurt him .
