Nodwick is confused about why Lucas himself…

…is so determined to rewrite history itself and declare that Han did not shoot first  (which, by the way, is in contradiction to the original script).  I suspect that I know the answer, but it’s depressing: George Lucas knows that his only hope for any sort of artistic immortality will be because the Holy Trilogy, and he hates that.  So he tortures his movies because, well, he can.

It’s sad, in its way.  Also: kind of creepy.

    If you wait for the other guy to shoot first your an idiot or you KNOW the the other guys a really bad shot, shooting first is a sign of Respect.

  • Finrod says:

    After all, there’s a good reason for the existence of the saying “That’s the worst idea since Greedo shot first”.

  • Kresh says:

    If you have to wait for the other guy to shoot first, you need to change your watering holes.

    They were sitting ACROSS A TABLE. Greedo would not have to be just a bad shot to miss, he has to be blind and senile. Plus Greedo spends then entire scene with his gun pointed right at Han’s heart…I know this is beating a dead horse, but GEEZ. How old is Lucas? Will his heirs fix this? They Must! Plus, Luke wears white because he is GOOD, Vadar wears black because he is BAD, Han wears both white and black because he is both GOOD and BAD…understand you’re own movie…

    I love how Lucas never even acknowledges the scene in TESB where Han and Leia are brought to Vader – and Han just opens up on him. I shouldn’t give him any ideas like “Vader shot first!”

    PS Alderaan shot first too…. http://chzgifs.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/funny-gifs-alderaan-shot-first.gif

    Too Sucessful to Be Wrong Syndrome. Also known as Too Sucessful To Be Edited syndrome. The same path that leads Lucas from “What a piece of junk!” to, “What’s a midichlorian?” is the same path that led Anne Rice from ‘Vampire Lestat’ to ‘Tale of the Body Thief’, Stephen King from ‘Salem’s Lot’ to ‘Cellular’, or Kevin Smith from ‘Clerks’ to ‘Red State’.
