    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and The Color Purple. Lucas is neither Peter Jackson or Uwe Boll, so his name next to a movie can mean a great, thoroughly entertaining film or a thoroughly mediocre, hammy film.

    He likes classic cinema tropes, so the classic war movie narrative was no surprise. Critics getting bent out-of-shape over Redtails narrative style are, typically, getting hamstrung with their own hidden cultural expectations and basis, which is why discerning movie goer should choose their trusted critics carefully.

    As for the Star Wars whining, I can understand the people who gripe about the dilution of their childhood, but after hearing it a while, you start to wonder when they will actually enter adulthood.
