George Lucas Enjoys Being Hated

Screenwriter Blames George Lucas for 'Indiana Jones' Delay

George LucasScreenwriter Frank Darabont has blasted George Lucas for the delays behind the fourth Indiana Jones movie. The highly anticipated sequel was ready for filming back in 2004, but despite a script from Darabont that impressed director Steven Spielberg, the film's producer Lucas blocked the impending shoot - citing problems with the screenplay.

Speaking to, director Frank Darabont says, "That was terrifically frustrating. I worked for over a year on that. I worked very close with Steven Spielberg. He was ecstatic with the result and was ready to shoot it two years ago. He was very, very happy with the script and said it was the best draft of anything since Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

"Lucas read it and said, 'Yeah, I don't think so, I don't like it.' And then he resets it to zero when Spielberg is ready to shoot it that coming year, (which) is a real kick to the nuts. You can only waste so much time and so many years of your life on experiences like that, you can only get so emotionally invested and have the rug pulled out from under you before you say enough of that."


Keep up the good work George.

How to Ruin a Costume: Take 2

Several years ago Spider-Man debuted with the Norman Osborne the Green Goblin as the villain. As you can see, the Green Goblin has a very simple and effective character design:It's an evil goblin with pumpkin bombs on a bat glider. That simple. So they go ahead and brilliantly cast Willem Dafoe, who without even the help of make-up looks like an evil goblin. But the powers behind the movie were able to translate the above design into this Power Ranger looking mess of a costume, officially deemed the WORST costume in film history:
But unknown to the general public is that the Green Goblin returns in the form of Norman Osborne's son Harry. The film team is given a second chance to improve the costume and redeem themselves. What have they done to "improve" the costume for the upcoming Spider-Man 3?
Yep, that's right, a snowboarder. A FREAKING SNOWBOARDER! Sam Raimi has officially achieved the impossible. He has surpassed himself, broken his own record, and created the WORST WORST costume of all time. He now owns the top two slots bumping Ben Affleck's Daredevil down to a comfortable 3.
