the PT was probably the single biggest disaster in film history This is an utterly ludricrous and ridiculous lie. Sorry but I'm not gonna mince words. There is not a single fact to back this up. If anyone honestly thinks the PT was the biggest bomb in film history then you are completely ignorant of film history and have apparently never heard of such true disasters as Cleopatra, Hudson Hawk, Heaven's Gate, and the recent remake of Around the World in 80 Days. Mars Attacks! anyone? The PT was not even remotely a disaster. That's some desperate or wishful thinking on someone's part. All three films made HUGE profits, sold millions and millions of DVDs and VHS copies, and continued to make Lucasfilm the most successful independent film company on planet Earth. That means, duh, it wasn't a disaster. People can debate the artistic merits all they want to, acting, writing, blah, blah, blah, that's fine and that's open for debate. But a disaster in the film business is when you spend gargantuan amounts of money creating a movie and nobody shows up to buy tickets. Sorry, but that just didn't happen with the PT. Look up the stats on Box Office Mojo. They were all big hits, by any reasonable definition of the word. Does money equal quality? (Someone will inevitably bring up that tired old debate.) No, not necessarily. But it does tell you what people want to spend their entertainment dollars on, and by that standard, the PT was a raging success. It sold BILLIONS of dollars worth of tickets. Unlike Serenity. Now THAT was a disaster. I can guarantee you, there won't be a Serenity II and there won't be any Serenity prequels. That's because nobody bought tickets to see it. It's box office future is as dead as dead can be. Now THAT'S a disaster. It would be nice if ROTS could win a couple of technical Oscars. But if it doesn't, that's not a disaster.
