Re: George Lucas: Star Wars stood on the shoulders of Star Trek
I tend to agree with Christopher as well. Out of the six SW films episodes V and VI had a co-writer credit if memory serves and dialouge wise they are the best of the bunch. What I think the prequel triology needed was another writer to help tighten up the dialouge. Like Chrisopher said from a visual point of view he knows what he wants but perhaps isn't always to tell the actor exactly what he wants. As for FX perhaps he finds that a more comfortable medium.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
