Orson Scott Card, probably best known to you guys as the dialogue writer for the LucasArts graphic adventure The Dig
, has gone on record to say that he hated Attack of the Clones
. Mr. Card writes a weekly review column for The Rhinoceros Times, and in his July edition, he discusses the difference between Men in Black II
and Episode II
. Here's a quote:
... Attack of the Clones is a wretched waste of time and money - the filmmakers' and ours - while MIIB pays off exactly as well as it should. And it doesn't try to give us a bogus religion in the process.
Why the difference? MIIB has a good script and a director who knows how to get the best out of his actors."
Hear that? That's the sound of Orson Scott Card being blacklisted from all future Lucas projects! Just kidding... ?
