Well, here’s an interesting little slice of pie for all of you kids. A new teaser trailer has surfaced, and it’s for a movie that’s called The People vs. George Lucas.
Basically what we have here is a documentary that talks to a wide array of people. These people stand on two sides of a sharp line — on one side stands the people who love and will always love Mr. George Lucas; on the other side stands the people who hate him with a refined passion. Some of the people who hate him seem to have loved him at one point, but have been so severely let down by the newest three Star Wars movies that they developed this hatred. Other people on this negative side of the line seem to see how much making money and being an evil marketing genius means to Georgie over concentrating on the quality and quantity of all these films people so desperately want, or NEED, to see, and that is what causes the hate. Then there’s surely the people who fit under all of these descriptions.
Even better is the collection of people that are on these two sides of the line. Some of them aren’t just fanboys looking to whine, they’re actually names that are known or people who are associated with names that we know and their love or hatred for the mastermind himself.
