[ENTERTAINMENT] - Dissing George Lucas

[ENTERTAINMENT] - Dissing George Lucas - Salon has an article which takes every possible potshot at Mr. Lucas. Particularly interesting to me is the second page of the article which concerns the possible sources of many of the imporatnt elements of the Star Wars universe. I had heard the criticisms concerning that Japanese movie (the name escapes me now - someone leave an appropriate comment?) but this is all new to me. The "Lensmen?" Read it and let me know what you think.

[UPDATE] - Oh yeah, now I remember. The movie was Kurosawa's "The Hidden Fortress".
