So now that Hicks has officially said "Ridley is senile" comments are not welcome, you just link to videos where people say he's senile rather than saying it out loud yourself. Clever.
Senile? No. I don't believe that it is necessary to start making jokes about a persons mental standing. Out of touch? Possibly. Creatively burned out? I think so, definitely. He can certainly be forgiven his pride, but he has a problem with being stubborn, and frankly his words in that interview, and others, smack of arrogance. Not confidence, arrogance.
RLM's read of that interview just drives home the point. Ridley just seems to be at the point where he will do whatever he wants, even if it doesn't really make any sense.
If Hicks has any issue with my posts, i'm sure he'll let me know.
