I personally think the direction Lucas applies to his stories now is invalid, one of my main examples being that he went back and redid ET to remove the shotguns and replace them with walkie-talkies. When he originally made ET, his personality, his views, were all fine with using shotguns. Now he wants walkie-talkies instead. For me that just shows that who he is has changed quite a bit from who he used to be (it all seems mostly politically motivated to me) and that his view is now inconsistent.
Um, that was Spielberg.
But I know what you mean. It’s like when Oliver Stone took the Donald Duck scene out of Popeye, I mean, damn, dude, what a dick.
