    ...and with that, George Lucas decided: "Alright-- that's it. I'm done with this artsy, thinky sci-fi crap. Let's just do some space...war...cowboy adventure or some shit. I dunno...
    With lasers. See where that goes. And space monkeys".

    ***SPOILER ALERT***

    Basically what would happen if the teen soap opera bits of second season Twin Peaks were written and directed with the filmbro sensibility that the sustained intensity, viscera and bleakness of Oldboy was operatic genius but could have used circa-Kill-Bill-era Tarantino slick style, infused with Japanese adolescent melodrama taken to extremes and led by the unhinged, self-destructive drive of Harvey Keitel's antihero character in Bad Lieutenant.

    ...but without the cleverness, craft, talent, or vision of the aforementioned source material. Instead, at best, superficial, derivative hollow reproduction. Raperaperape. Stabstabstab. Crycrycry.
