I just finished watching your edit. Thanks for letting me preview it for you. I really enjoyed watching it. At times, I forgot I was watching a fan edit and found myself wrapped up in the story again. I thought many of your edits greatly improved the film. The Rathtar sequence, cutting Rey’s “No” after Finn’s line “You ever fly this thing?”, the Snoke hologram, and ending the film before finding Luke were all great. My first
problem with the edit, however, is that the colors, especially in the first scene, were too dark, and there were a few other scenes in which the colors took me out of the movie. My only other problem with the edit was that there were a few moments of dialogue I thought could have stayed in. For example, Poe’s “so who talks first…” lines, Kylo Ren’s “comfortable?” line, Finn and Poe’s conversation “You need a pilot.”, the Star Trek-esque turret sequence, and a few others. I don’t feel that they detract from the film, and without them, it can be hard to get a feel for the character’s personalities. Hux’s speech and Han talking to his son before his death, I felt were more suspenseful and effective without music. Lastly, there were a few moments where I felt the editing stood out, and it was slightly distracting. Most of these are only personal preferences and I absolutely loved watching the edit as it was.
Thanks DigMod, keep up the great work.
