Liggy, I think the criticisms are short-sighted. For just a few thousand more, we can have orbiting Live-Cam’s, run by Ridley Scott, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg.
Once the Death Star is destroyed, the video will sell KAJILLIONS in ad space on YouTube. Then, over the years, Ridley-Lucas-Spiel can re-edit in new 3D (4D? 5D?) features and characters, create a few Hitler Rants, too, and sell even MORE ad space! We’ll have Directors Cuts, Final Directors Cuts, Original Theatrical releases, Final Ultimate Director Theatrical Special Edit cuts, etc. The popcorn revenue alone could be billions!
For only a few thousand more.
Anyone see what the US Navy’s proposition costs for the latest Coast Guard close-in-shore ship is projected at costing? Over $3 billion a piece. And the Chinese admiral said a motorboat with $1,000 worth of dynamite would blow it in half.
