The Force Awakens - The Starlight Project
Time

Since you plan to add a day dream scene, I think you could have some kind of pattern here to better explain the awakening of the force through Rey:
1- Day dream
2- Force vision
3- Unlocked mind by Ren
4- Jedi mind trick
5- Anakin’s lightsaber that goes into Rey’s hand after Finn vs Ren

Then would you consider adding material as well within points 3 and 4 in order to smoother Rey’s “evolution” ? Especially during the jedi mind trick sequence which doesn’t work and does seem forced in its theatrical version. Something like adding Ben’s voice-over from ANH about weak minded, as if Rey was “guided” through the Force, for example ?

F8 certainly doesn’t deserve the record but at least it’s a good movie.

Good ? Well, if you think so… TFOTF (aka FF8) is so dumb it gets unwatchable (the opening scene is fun though). Even Theron is a very terrible vilain (who wrote her endless stupid monologues ?). The rip off of Hard Boiled was quite confusing as well. Fast Five is way better and still is the best of the series. At least FF8 is not as arrogant as FF6.

I have seen plenty of movies that are far worse (lately The fate of the furious). At least AOTC has a solid score, very interesting visual ideas, and was a unique experimental flick at its time. Some scenes are even quite good.

Is there concrete info on why the Attack of The Clones BD got the Fellowship of The Ring treatment?

Are you sure they just didn’t forget to replace the green screens with cgi for the bluray version ?

4K restoration on Star Wars

It just occurred to me that if Lucasfilm put out the OOT in 2020 it would be the second time they put it out on the current format the year after the conclusion of a main saga movie trilogy.

Would they also rehash that ?

From my point of view it might be better if you started your own edit based on Hal’s restructure to implement all these additional small changes. But in the end it’s Hal’s call of course 😃

I agree, but I still think it’s nice that there’s a place for all kinds of ideas in this thread, and then HAL can decide which ones work for his edit.

I’ll be using most of these ideas for my own edit which I’ll complete at some point after Restructured v2 is done.

You get me hyped. I would suggest you to check DigMod edit which has plenty of good ideas to give consistency to Finn.

Rogue One: The Battle of Scarif Fanedit
Time

I still need to watch R1 a second time to be sure if I really don’t like it or if I can change my mind. In any case, your edit seems very appropriate to deliver the real transition I was looking for between Episode III and Episode IV without losing time with boring characters escaped from a Resident Evil/Underworld flick and lame daddy/boyfriend/mentor/teenage issues (yep, R1 really is a Prequel movie era…). Your Hobbit edit was very fun and professional (albeit you may have cut a little bit too more here and there), so good luck with this one, I’ll be sure to get a copy of it when available 😃

There is something very poetic about that dream sequence, something… very Dune-esque. Very good call.
