It's okay, I won't tear you apart today...
...it's darkish who's on my list at the moment. *glare*
It doesn't look lame. The original theatrical cut looks a hell of a lot better than these CGI movies today. A model spaceship looks more like a spaceship than a CGI spaceship.
It's just that Star Wars is not the work of an artful director. The non-special effects shots are all very basic. That's not to say that George Lucas isn't a talented director, just that he doesn't partake in creating interesting shots.
It's like when people compare/contrast Lucas and the Hobbit, they're really the same director. Neither knows how to use a camera.
I'm going to VA tomorrowwwww
Im going to miss you guuuuuuuuys
and some of you more! :C
Speaking of which, I just saw the clone wars the other day and all the CGI characters look really really really really fake.
I think it was better when they used puppets in the original ones
