I love the image Jordan posted (three times?) but I'm not a fan of that South Park episode. While I know they were upset with how the new Indy movie was handled I think they took things a little too far. It was definitely the episode that started turning me off of South Park.

I dunno, Mike, my big brother and I thought that episode was hilarious! At first, we were confused when Kyle said, "Our friend was raped, Stan!" Did we miss something? But the moment they had that first flashback of the kids running from the theater, we got the joke. It was just too funny!

Even the rape scenes were hilarious, over-the-top as they were (and the movies they borrowed them from).

Hey, I was in Howard the Duck!

Besides the over-hammed acting it actually has a very Lovecraftian plot and excellently animated space monsters at the end.

my honest opinion of lucas is that he is one of the more imaginative minds in the business and very creative, but he is a TERRIBLE director who couldn't coax a good performance out of even the best of actors and when he's hampered with less than stellar stars, his movie become borderline unwatchable (his recent work)

he had some early awesomeness clearly. But his success and money making have made him shielded from a lot of common sense. He doesn't have to answer to anybody and in his case thats NOT good. He's more Ford Coppola than Spielberg

I think this is a great way to sum up Lucas.

I can agree with this...he'd make a good initial script guy...write a fantastic idea and then have someone else execute it after a another draft by someone who has more of a flare towards dialogue...

Even Lucas himself has admited he doesn't really enjoy directing all that much...

That is really cool! What did you do? Where in the film are you? What do you recall about it.

Honestly, I really like this film. Sure, it could have been better, but if you just go along with it it's fun. And the creature at the end is really amazing.

I was just an extra in the punk bar scenes and am actually visible a few times. But due to people I met on the set it was my fateful "in" into the effects and animation world.
