Like my comic: “Mindy and the Cinema Bums”
I was initially mad at Lucas regarding the “Detours” series, but once I discovered that “Raiders of the Lost Ark” was getting an IMAX treatment this week, I was almost starting to feel forgiveness for the man. He’s partially responsible for my favourite film of all time, so I really shouldn’t be giving him a hard time. Then I discovered that the movie seems to be marketed as “Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark”, something they also did for the last DVD release. That’s not the name of the dang movie, and it’s perfectly in line with Lucas’s obsession with changing details of his flicks and presenting the new version as the “correct” one. I know Spielberg directed “Raiders”, I’m just saying that this behaviour is similar to his repeated modifications of the “Star Wars” trilogy.
I’ll still watch it, but it’s possible that my ticket may be slightly ripped before the usher has had a chance.
Google Led You Here: “Anybody want a peanut” Sure, Internet Searcher, I’ll have one. You can probably put it in a standard letter envelope. Email me for the address.
UPDATE: So… a couple of months later, Lucas actually DID stop. Weird.
