Yeah I've seen all of them and they are spot on AND very funny. What gets me with Lucas is that after that initial view they had of the final edit of TPM, didnt he think hold on a minute, maybe I've bitten of more than I can chew here. It was clear to see it was terrible. Just as a film,above all else, it was terrible. He's not an idiot, he's an intelligent man. He should've said,"right, there's nothing we can do now because the film is done. But I'm going to go all out to get people in to help me with the next 2." It was a pivotal moment because the trilogy was still salvageable at that point.
