They gave him their love, their money, and their online parodies. He gave them the prequels. The passion the original Star wars trilogy inspires in its fans is unparalleled, but when it comes to George Lucas himself, many have found their ardor has cooled into a complicated love-hate relationship. This hilarious, heartfelt documentary delves deep into Lucas's cultural legacy.
DVD, widescreen presentation; 5.1 Dolby Digital.
This video is mostly about those creepy fans who hate Lucas with a passion because he didn't make the movies the way they thought they should be. There are a few moderate, reasonable people in the video, too, but it's those other psychotics that make this video worth watching. It's like watching a trainwreck. It's like "Honey Boo Boo", but with science fiction nerds in place of rednecks. This video makes me feel grateful that I didn't fall into their way of thinking.
The best example of the extremist stupidity shown in this video is a song written by a fan titled, "George Lucas Raped My Childhood". (If you're feeling masochistic, watch the complete video for this song, which is included in the video's special features.)
One part not to be missed is also found in the special features. An interview with Gary Kurtz, producer of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back. Kurtz speaks candidly about working with Lucas and gives opinions on the path Lucas took with his franchise in the later years.
Whether you agree with the psychotic fans or not, you will find something you like in this video.
