The thread being back on the front page, I take this opportunity to ask if the audio track in glorious uncompressed bluray format is now corrected ?

Sorry Mala. Life has not allowed for this. I will let you know.

Also, the link should be working again.

  • Cut “You can’t talk your way around this” " I don’t have to" in order to end the conversation in a stronger place “Some of us just decided to do something about it” Next scene we see of Jyn is her ‘doing something about it’

Well, to me she isn’t. She’s just getting her father. She still isn’t sold on the rebellion until after he is killed…by rebel bombs…yeah I’ve never understood that part.

Replacing Jar Jar in Episode II

How difficult would it be to replace one computer-generated alien with another computer-generated alien? Can it be done?

It wouldn’t be too hard to replace. Now, making it movie quality in terms of textures, animations, etc…that would be extremely difficult, to put it lightly. Dubbing is a more efficient approach. Change his voice and dialogue and suddenly he’s not Jar Jar anymore.

Somebody had the idea of opening the movie with canto bight. Finn is simply awake. You cut maz Kanata explanation. Cut the drippy Finn scene. Cut scene with rose and him in the escape pod and she zaps him. The last scenes (minus the ring) could set the stage as part of the canto bight sequence either at the front or at the end of it. Truncate this sequence a lot overall. Cut the chase. Cut the beach landing. They find DJ in jail and get on the stolen ship back to the fleet. Then cut to TFA chewie and Rey landing on achto.

I like he idea of Finn already being awake. That would imply time has passed. I’ll have to think about this one. The crawl would need to set these scenes up but I’m not sure we have a reason for this to happen without he opening scenes.
I suppose this movie could start with the implications that the Resistance is going to cut off the snakes head so to speak. Finn could be locating a slicer that will allow him to infiltrate the flag ship of the First Order and destroy it from within. That could go wrong and they could trace the Resistance base through the band Finn is wearing leading to the opening scenes. Hmmm, I’ll have to think about this one more. Thanks for spurring on this thought. 😃

Maybe you can consider ending tfa with the falcon leaving and start tlj with the end of tfa then you can have a larger space of time pass instead of it seeming immediately after tfa

I appreciate that constructive feedback 😃

If you’ve seen Heir to the Force, that’s exactly what I did. Luke was never seen in that edit as he last scene was the Falcon entering hyperspace.

Star Wars: Legacy of the Jedi (A The Last JediT) - <strong>SPOILERS INSIDE</strong>
Time

These are my edit ideas for The Last Jedi

Edit list (so far):
-Color Correct entire movie to remove yellowish green tint
-Add custom Walt Disney 20th Century Fox intro
-Add custom crawl (draft: https://brorlandi.github.io/StarWarsIntr...6df5XXuDMe)
-Add Rey arriving at Ahch-To
-Remove the artsy shots throughout the movie
-Remove Poe’s single fighter assault on that incompetent dreadnought and all of the ridiculous dialogue in the scene
-Retain the Resistance fleeing, but remove the opening bombing scenes and place them later in the movie
-Remove Finn’s leaking suit scenes. We’ll just see him wake up
-Remove the Finn Rose subplot distraction in its entirety
-Remove Leia’s space force fairy scene. We’ll see the bridge get hit, but no one will go flying out in space.
-Remove Luke throwing the saber, remove quippy dialogue on the island.
-Remove as much of the porgs including the Chewbacca scene
-Remove the native island nuns
-Remove Luke milking the creature (at least we know where blue milk comes from now)
-Remove Luke’s ridiculous fish spear scene
-Remove Rey’s finger snaps during her force vision in the dark side cave
-Lessen Kylo Ren’s tantrum in the turbo lift
-Remove the Yoda scene (I get the message that was intended, but the scene was terribly executed imho)
-Remove Luke’s matrix bullet time movements
-Remove distant ship in the sun as Luke becomes one with the Force
-Add iris out to credits

Slight color correction that isn’t quite there. I’ll wait for the official release before putting a ton of time into correcting the color.

It’s a pretty fantastic job NeverarGreat! Any ideas to do the same treatment to the Falcon deleted scene? I know someone else did it already, but your work is near flawless.

I love the opening crawl except for one word: defected. Galen escaped, he didn’t defect to another cause, so “deserter” or “escaped scientist” would be accurate and fit better I think.

Interesting interpretation. Yes, I would agree with you if the crawl were presented as if through the view of the Empire. This crawl approaches a grey space in this regard. It’s not necessarily pro Empire or Rebellion.
Based on flashbacks where Erso was part of the Empire, I’d have to stick with the use of defected. Deserting would imply that he ran away or abandoned his post (pro Empire view), but we see that he’s connected and stays connected with Saw who is an antagonist to the Empire. That makes me think that he isn’t just disserting, he’s defecting (pro Rebellion view). This interpretation fits the definition below. I also like that it is synonymous to Rebel, which is the core idea of this movie. It also serves as a narrative strength for Jyn. Her father defected and now she rebels.

defect:
abandon one’s country or cause in favor of an opposing one.
"he defected to the Soviet Union after the war"
synonyms: desert, change sides, turn traitor, rebel, renege;

To quote Obi-Wan, “many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.”

I appreciate the feedback and think it is totally valid, based on the view of Erso’s character you have.

The shot of Rey standing over Kylo when she beats him. Look at the falling snow and it’s clearly in slow mo. There isn’t a way to retime that, is there? It stands out to me every time and bugs the crap out of me.

Well, I know lots of people have a problem with the fact that Rey bests Kylo Ren. Perhaps she really didn’t and that was all a force vision/dream ala Luke’s slowed down scene in Empire. Of course, that isn’t the case here. Have YOU tried to fix the timing?

Fair enough 😃

It is quite theatrical, I’d argue not any more than this paragraph though:

Pursued by the Empire’s
sinister agents, Princess
Leia races home aboard her
starship, custodian of the
stolen plans that can save
her people and restore
freedom to the galaxy…

You’re totally right about that 😃

NeverarGreat said:

The galaxy is in peril.
Far from the worlds
of the New Republic,
a sinister FIRST ORDER
is building a weapon that
can devour an entire star.

Haunted by visions of
this devastating weapon,
the disgraced General
Leia Organa mobilizes
a covert Resistance in
an attempt to stave off
this impending disaster.

While on a daring mission,
her most trusted pilot has
found a clue to the location
of Leia’s long-lost brother,
the last of the Jedi Knights
and their only hope against
the evil First Order…

Nice! Now that is Star Wars 😃
Stave off might be difficult for some to understand, but I think comprehension would come without frustration. Excellent mix of simplistic and poetic language!

I can be the yin to your yang 😃

I think that crawl is a bit too theatrical in it’s word choice. Far from the complacent; devour the very stars; this impossible weapon; forestall this impending doom; ancient fear ( the way this reads is confusing as if Luke is their ancient fear). It just feels like it’s trying to be academic. Star Wars flirts with dramatic but never becomes polarizing to those who struggle with reading. The lexile score of this crawl is a bit steep for the general population. Remember, the crawls should be able to be read and understood by children. I’m a bit exhausted after reading this and perhaps frustrated because it is flying by and I’m wanting to rewind in order to understand.

How’d I do for disagreeing in a productive manner?
