Aw hell ... for a second there I thought I was in the AST. My apologies. I'd like to amend my suggestion: Uwe Boll.

Is this what it's like to be a troll? If so ... I can't believe what I've missed out on all these years ... [face_whistle]

The scary thing is that GL has enough Disney shares to make it possible.

Whoever it is for the love of F'ing God please.....pretty please....reign in the CGI. Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD.

Also don't make the F'ing lightsabers so goddamn bright that I can't see what the F is going on during the scene, everyone talks about the ObiWan/Anakin fight in ROTS and how kick ass it was, and I'm like "what fight, all I saw was one big blur?"

Jeff Goldblum would be proud! But I completely agree. Watch the opening sequence of ROTS again ... the CGI is so excessive that it's almost impossible to understand exactly what is going on (as compared, say, to the Death Star II battle of ROTJ). Still, the all-CGI Clone Wars series has brilliantly done a number of space battles - to the point where I'd say they easily surpassed the PT and certainly rival the OT. The key is focus - keeping things clear enough for the audience to see and understand what is happening. GL's use of CGI was too indulgent - which is why the models of the OT are so much more visceral.

If the new films can match the immediacy of the TV series, we'll be in great shape.

What is weird is that movie makers and other cinephiles talk about how brilliant Michael Bay is as a cinematographer. His story's may suck, but his shots, use of lighting, etc are all supposedly superb and innovative and all that jazz (hands).

Well, Bay's films certainly look exciting and shiny. But Lucas was always pretty good at that, too. The whole storytelling thing tends to be a sticking point, though. :p

To be fair, I wouldn't say storytelling is Lucas' sticking point. Lucas has great stories. It's the execution of said story that's Lucas' problem.

I still can't believe the man responsible for American Graffitti made the PT. How the F did that happen, or more to the point "what" happened???

I would like to see a no-name newbie direct one of these sequels. Get some fresh blood. How about right out of film school.

Wait, how about a twilight director? *vomit*
