TTWA Assignment: A friend of yours at the NSA calls. She says that for just one hour, she will let you listen to the conversations of any two people in the world. You accept. Whose conversations do you listen to and what do they say? Transcribe the conversation.
Okay, I’m going to get my inner geek on and say George Lucas and Peter Jackson. Ironically enough, both created epic sci-fi and fantasy trilogies, beloved the world over, and both followed up these wonderful movies with prequels that heavily relied upon CGI instead of old-school props and set-design. These secondary trilogies are relatively less beloved.
I often wonder if the two men every phoned one another and compared notes.
PJ: CGI gophers, man? Seriously? Didn’t you learn anything from Jar Jar?
GL: Your one to talk. The Five Armies was basically one long Pixar film, man. Where’s the models? The orc costumes? Hell, I’d settle for a real horse.
