Lah Di Dah

I have realised that for a very long time now my post have been studded with "Oh I'm so sick" whinges.
Well today, despite the fact that I've only had about 3 and a half hours sleep, I've not going to whine.
Instead, I'm going to discuss something far far daggier - Star Wars.
I am a big fan of DVD commentaries and over the last few days I've been listening to the commentaries on the 3 old school Star Wars movies.
I shall make my comments in dot point:
1) George Lucas is clearly an astonishing fellow.
2) George Lucas speaks a great deal of crap. He is completely contradictory throughout the entirety of the 3 movies. I cannot be arsed going into detail.
3) He mispronounces the name of Lando Calrissian incorrectly 2 times.
4) Irvin Kerschner clearly had a great deal more to do with The Empire SB than I would have imagined. He says a great many useful and important things about basic film making that Lucas clearly decided were not worth remembering when he made his new films.
5) It's delightful to hear the old school Kersch chatter on about droids and Yoda.
6) Frank Oz as Yoda is the best thing in the movie.
7) Darth Vader comes across as a bit of a saddie, especially after the prequels.
8) George Lucas is actually pretty funny but laughs at the wrong things and provides very poor explanation for a lot of the things he has done. Well, he mostly gives excuses rather than explanation. Kind of like accidently making a wonderful chocolate cake and then giving sagely advice about what kind of chocolate cake you deliberately made.
9) Anything Ben Burtt, Sound Designer, says is complete 100% geeksville and utterly fascinating.
10) George Lucas has a big throat pouch like one of the silly aliens in the prequels.
That is all I shall be saying about Star Wars for now.
I'm not promising that I wont bring it up again in the future, but for now, that's it.Posted by Hello

Oh. My. God.

However, number 9 is the only one that makes any sense to me, and I completely agree with it.
