if you're still doing the unpop opinion meme: george lucas?
I think “I was just making kids’ movies!” is bullshit. He was making movies that would be accessible to kids, which is something very different.
(I think he deserves a lot of respect for what he’s done as a filmmaker, and he seems to be a pretty good person. At the same time, he can be immensely self-serving when not outright deceptive in his accounts of the past, which I find irritating.)
