Sadly I think it’s safe to say that Lucas is now well into his “fat Elvis” period of creative output (i.e.: repackaging the same stuff to cash in but with creeping lameness). Nonetheless, Star Wars, was a fixture of my childhood.
For all the ill that one might argue that Star Wars has done (and you can construct a pretty damning case these days) these movies, taken by themselves, with Han shooting first, were awesome.
Happy 30th Star Wars. Oh, and George Lucas, please give all your fans a birthday present, retire.
