  1. Lucas thinks Empire is the worst? Proof he's an idiot when it comes to movies. I'm sure Cameron thought he could do better. (And he did!)
    Some really interesting facts there, Jeremy.

  2. LOL thanks for the link Bob. I needed a laugh. A lot of these are surprising especially that it inspired Cameron to become a director. Good job Lucas.

  3. These facts were really interesting. I wonder if Harrison looks a Carrie and still thinks of "hubba-hubba" with her:) Lucas thought Jar Jar Binks was a good character so I don't think much about him disliking The Empire Strikes Back.
