I watched TLJ again tonight, and my wife and I had a funny moment during the film.
To give some backstory to this moment, my wife and I have watched the recent My Little Pony:FiM cartoons with our daughter several times. During one of the Halloween episodes, there is a character in the episode wearing a silly clown costume who attempts to talk to the little kids in a scary and spooky way, but another character turns and says “ugh. The rainbow wig just kills it for me.”
I had previously had a discussion with my wife about how I didn’t really like the Holdo character because her appearance made me think she would have looked more at home in The Hunger Games rather than in Star Wars. Well, during the film this time, after Holdo first appeared on screen, my wife turns to me and says “The purple hair just kills it for me.”
I laughed. I will always remember her saying that whenever I see Holdo in the film from now on.
It’s like it’s quite possible that Picasso would have loved to use Photoshop for some of his paintings if it was available back then, but if you take a picture from Picasso and recreate it in Photoshop, it’s not going to be the same picture and it can hardly be used to demonstrate Picasso’s brush techniques.
