George Lucas Talks "Red Tails," Describes It As "Patriotic, Old-Fashioned, Corny... For Teenage Boys"

An 8-minute conversation here with George Lucas on The Daily Show with John Stewart, in which he talks about, what else, Red Tails, the struggles he had in getting the film made (it took him 23 years to get it to theaters), Hollywood’s less than lovable *habits* (especially when it comes to stories centered around the lives of non-whites) and more.

I should be posting my review of it early next week – the week of the film’s release.
