My verdict: Exile in Dagobah. Or failing that, Albuquerque. Plus a remake and rewrite of the prequels, Indy 4, and Return of the Jedi-to get rid of the fraking Ewoks. And let JJ Abrams do this, or Jon Favreau, or Zack Snyder.

What do you think? What's your verdict? And who should re-write and redirect the damn trilogy and ROTJ? Tell us in the comments. [io9]

DISCUSSION

I think Lucas became as a director, much like what Darth Vader became. More man than machine. Lucas relied way too heavily on CG in the prequels and IJ4 (the ants were a joke). He needs to get back to his roots when he couldn't rely on computers to do the great effects. I say: "Bailiff, whack his peepee!"
