Cat claws out: George Lucas hits back at movie industry

Some say that George Lucas changed movies forever with his original STAR WARS films.
Others say that his incarnations in the early 2000s were some of the worst pieces of film crap every displayed on screen, besides Natalie Portman of course..

But George Lucas is hitting back, calling out his critics and even slamming people's pop cultural preferences..

Among the many quotables that you can find in the VARIETY article penned by Brent Lang, the HORROR REPORT picks its favorites:
 If you go into ‘Star Wars’ and see what’s going on there, there’s a lot more substance than circus

...

All art is technology. That’s the one thing that separates us from animals.

...

All of us in film school hated the establishment. It was the sixties.

...

Studio executives generally are not the most sophisticated people in the world…you do not want to be oppressed by people who are not as smart as you are and I’m dumb

...

But perhaps the one that will cut the deepest: Lucas scratches his head at pop culture:
I would never guess people would watch cats do stupid things all day long

George.. this one's for you:

Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
