I was as big a Star Wars fan as anyone else who grew up in the ’80s and I have fond memories of those films, but my enthusiasm for the franchise didn’t survive the first prequel. I honestly felt like George Lucas thought he could get away with spewing garbage across the screen because of how much mileage he got out of the original trilogy, and I could genuinely sense his disdain for his audience. This is why posts like this open letter to Mr. Lucas make me smile inside. He’s a jerk.
