    Prisoner of Azkaban was my least favorite Harry Potter movie growing up, but looking back I feel as though it's one of the better installments in the series. There's only one thing that I don't like about it - the bus sequence. WTF was he thinking?

    Rambling aside, if he's up to it, I think he'd make a great movie about the Force. If they ever want to make a Yoda movie for whatever reason, he's who I'd pick.

    How is that he hasn't made a movie since 2013(Gravity)? Is it that studios are not seeking him or he is taking his time to chose the next project?

    I agree. I never agree with critics ever. It's my opinion that counts for me. Not someone elses thoughts

    Nothing like Star Wars fans to jump off bridges and/or grab pitchforks. A couple of things pointed about by Peter Sciretta from SlashFilm.

    A: The movie's been shot and completed since 2015. Lucasfilm execs saw it then.
    B: He shot the film while basically being in the middle of Jurassic World and then landing Episode IX.
    C: The screenplay (which he didn't write) was originally written in 1998.

    So...no he's not getting fired from the movie.

    Sciretta also pointed out the obvious:

    Also occurs to me that Colon Trevorrow is in a no win situation with Episode 9. If it's good people will credit the lead in from JJ/RJ..

    Peter Sciretta‏Verified account @slashfilm 4h4 hours ago

    Replying to @slashfilm

    ...if it's bad it's CT's fault. It's like the Justice League situation: Whatever's good will be credited to Joss, everything bad to Snyder.

    The mere fact that fans have pitchforks out because of a poorly reviewed movie is incredible disingenuous. They apparently forgot about:

    Attack of the Clones (Lucas), Hook (Spielberg), Kundun (Scorcese), Godfather 3 (Coppola), Exodus: Gods & Kings (Scott), the Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies (Jackson), Alien 3 (Fincher) etc....

    Every great director has made a shitty movie or two or even three. Josh Trank was fired because he was awful to work with. Trevorrow directed one of the biggest movies of all time - did it have problems? Sure. But he reinvigorated an entire franchise.

    Listen, I was never comfortable with Colin, I watched Jurassic World and Safety Not Guaranteed and was disappointed by both. Furthermore, while I allow myself to decide a film's quality, Book Of Henry just never looked good. I don't know if Colin was right for Episode IX, but looking back at 1983, I don't know if Richard Marquand was right for Return of Jedi, and thanks to Lucas' guidance that film was a worthy end to the saga. I honestly don't know if this film will force Colin off of Episode IX, he's all ready turned in a script that Lucasfilm were happy with. Who knows; he may eventually cite wanting to take a break from blockbusters and leave Episode IX, maybe Lucasfilm is looking to replace him right now. I don't know, but I don't see a house burning yet.

    safety not guranteed is good, JW is a response a decades long process to make a profit. Colin will do a great job given what he is within his means.

    Well, it's good to you, and that's fine, but neither film was good. As for Colin, it's very similar to Richard Marquand, and I feel with oversight, Colin can create a serviceable conclusion. Whether or not it will be a good film on its own remains to be see, that will have to wait until 2019.

    Fixed it for you.

    As far as Marquand. Lucas chose him and this article explains why:

    "As opposed to Empire, Lucas was present… a lot. And to get a little wonky about film-making, Kershner didn’t film a master shot – “a single shot that includes the complete scene from its start to the finish.” Meaning the way Kershner filmed each scene was the way Empire was going to look, period. Kershner is the true auteur of the Star Wars universe. This did not please Lucas. A couple of years ago, I asked Joe Johnston (director of Captain America: The First Avenger and the man who created Boba Fett) and he admitted, “I think George was occasionally frustrated with the coverage Kershner shot. He refused to shoot a master, a cardinal sin in George’s book.”

    In response, Lucas forced Marquand to shoot a master shot. So, no matter how Marquand may have wanted a scene to look, Lucas now had the ability to edit it any way he wanted. When reading about Marquand’s experience on Jedi in J.W. Rinzler’s The Making of Return of the Jedi, it’s really a wonder why Lucas didn’t just direct Jedi himself.

    From accounts, it does seem like Marquand was a nice guy (he marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. at Selma) and a capable director (he was an Emmy-winner), but was in over his head with Jedi. Not because of the material or any of the challenges of directing a Star Wars movie, but because Lucas was literally standing right there the whole time. How do you not defer to Lucas when he’s looking over your shoulder and this is so obviously his creation?"

    One thing people have to keep in mind is that the Lucasfilm movie-making process is a collaborative one, not something that solely rests on the shoulders of the director himself. It's been that way since at least A New Hope.

    I didn't make a mistake. While it appears to have gone over your head the other user made a definitive statement and it was only appropriate to follow with my own. Isn't it funny how they contradict? Thanks for trying, though.

    Whether or not he was a good man played no part in his qualifier, just as what work of Colin's I've had the displeasure of watching plays no role in his future, as I've stated.

    There's no house burning here, so Colin doesn't really need any cheerleaders. That won't matter until Episode IX comes out.

    So you are claiming liking SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED is an opinion but disliking it is a fact?

    If someone says it's good without qualifying it as an opinion that's okay? Just because I don't like it I have to qualify it? That's absurd.

    We have contradicting definitives, the irony here speaks for itself.

    And instead of agreeing with Bespin, you proceeded to claim that your opinion is the factual answer.....

    it's also years in the making so letting him go now would be a ridiculously stupid decision.

    I don't agree with his assessment, so no. Adding "to me" defeats the purpose. Ho boy, I had no idea I was going to be teaching while I pooped but here goes:

    -Safety Not Guaranteed is a good movie.
    -Safety Not Guaranteed is a bad movie.

    Someone, don't know who cause I can't be bothered, made a definitive statement and quoted me. Now, I responded, on purpose, with a contradicting definitive, because it was funny.

    I really shouldn't have to explain it further, if you don't get it I guess you never will. Have a good night my clouded friend.

    Lol.
    You can't be bothered to make sure you are interacting with the right person?

    Well that explains a lot about yourself.

    With that attitude I bet it was a mass suicide at the temple not Kylo slaughtering
