George Lucas

Lucas' works are oddly spotted with strokes of brilliance and questionable taste. It's amazing how revolutionary his ideas are, and yet, it's equally amazing how greatly a few bungled details can detract from the larger work. The general problem is inappropriate-silliness. We see it in the Star Wars prequels, a few of the Young Indiana Jones prequels, Howard the Duck, and the Ewoks. For the love of God, why? Just cut that crap out and make a serious film! For whatever reason, Lucas has glaring moments of bad taste like few other directors.
