George Lucas would happily burn copies of The Hunger, paint over Van Goghs, crack the Pieta in half… anything, as long as he made money… comments?

Yes he would. He represents everything that's wrong with movies today and in the last 25 years.

I don't know off him but he has such a dreadful name I doubt that he could make anything good.

The Force is no longer with George Lucas. I agree that he ruins art. Good thing the Italian government wouldn't let him lay his hands on a pietá.

Lucas is one of the directors I love to hate (along with Spielberg, Bay, and a few others) because, among many other reasons, his films are sterile and because he really makes fantasy films for children, when you think about it.

What about Brannon Braga and Rick Berman? "Raise ratings by making Enterprise sexier" indeed! Never mind raising ratings by improving story quality, that would take too much work. These two richly deserve to be included with Lucas.

Lucas isn't really a filmmaker anyway. He's more like the greatest producer working today. The recent "Star Wars" films aren't directed by anyone at all, but the productions are incredible. He's like Cecil B. Demille before him, a director who's films are not well directed but are well produced. At least Spielberg (the other man responsible for cash cow movies) is a TRUE filmmaker.

To Tyndale: "fantasy films for children"...sure, some of them, but perhaps you haven't heard of "Minority Report" the best Hollywood studio film of 2002 and a masterpiece. Most complex and riveting experience I haven't had since Kubrick.
