Man Sells Darth Maul Figurine, Pays Last Respect For George Lucas
Sep 03, 2008 02:28
A man is selling his last respect for George Lucas on eBay, in the form of a Darth Maul figure.
Because this Darth Maul represented my faith in George Lucas (it was
bought back in the heady days of 1999 when the words Star and Wars
still brought to mind childhood dreams and wonderment), you are also
bidding on the last morsels of respect I have for the once
all-powerful, formally infallible bearded wonder. If you must know, the
use of the woeful Wookie 'Tarzan' cry in Revenge of the Sith is the
straw that broke the Bantha's back. It was almost unforgivable in
Return of the Jedi, but to have it featured again in Episode 3 was just
ridiculously [expletive] STUPID!
I've made so many excuses for George in the past - even to the
point of suggesting that Jar Jar would be bearable if he spoke in an
alien language with subtitles - but after witnessing the CGI monkeys
and gophers in Indiana Jones and the UFOs, I've got nothing left for
him (except for what this Darth Maul represents)... And to think of the
rabid, blind hope I had towards the end of the 90s before I entered the
cinema to see Episode 1...
Sounds like some serious stress built up from blue balls. Sorry George, but you can't satisfy everybody.
