George Lucas thinks Spidey 3 is silly.

I am reading news stories on the internet this morning and I read that The Almighty GL thinks that Spider-Man 3 is ""...silly. It's a silly movie," he said. "There just isn't much there. Once you take it all apart, there's not much story, is there?""

Let me break it down...Industrial Light and Magic (owned by GL) did special effects for almost every other movie coming out this summer EXCEPT Spidey3. I think GLs just pissed cause the block-buster of all time didn't have his finger prints on it. Then he goes on to say that there's no depth to the story blah blah blah. It may not be as complex as a galaxy far away but it has was is needed...entertainment. That's why it has done so well. It entertains people without pushing some personal/political/humanitarian agenda in their faces. People go, see some cool fighting, some personal struggles that most have dealt with (love, friendships, work, hate) and can relate to on some level. How do people relate to Wookies and Jar-Jars?! Not as well obviously.
