George Lucas promises never to make another Star Wars movie

Because you dissed the Star Wars prequels, George Lucas has sworn he won't ever make another movie about that faraway galaxy. He says, "Why would I make any more, when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?"

In an interview with the New York Times, he also seemed stung by criticism that he changed the original Star Wars trilogy too much for the various re-releases:

On the internet, all those same guys that are complaining I made a change are completely changing the movie. I'm saying: 'Fine. But my movie, with my name on it, that says I did it, needs to be the way I want it.'

Yes, you have scared off Lucas from making Star Wars: Episode VII. I hope you're proud of yourself. Lucas said Red Tails, in theaters this weekend, would be his last blockbuster movie. Although he wouldn't rule out making one last Indiana Jones film, as his swansong.

And Lucas claimed that the "nuke the fridge" scene in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was his idea, even though Steven Spielberg took the blame for it in an interview a while back. Spielberg was "just trying to protect me," said Lucas. But he also said that scene was totally fine, and "the odds of surviving that refrigerator – from a lot of scientists – are about 50-50."

I kind of am siding with him on this. Why should he makes anything when people are just going to rag on him and accuse him of trying to make a buck? He doesn't need the money. I may not like the prequels (mainly because I didn't like the actors who played anakin), but they are his movies. If some one walked in and told me they hate my front yard or they didn't like the job I was doing at work I would politely remind them that they don't have to look at my yard or buy the product.

Also...I liked the frig scene. I know just how absurd it was, but it was funny. Like the three stooges or any other kind of slap stick comedy.
