People often overlook that documentary-style filmmaking was a significant element in the original Star Wars, which helped give a sense of reality to the fantastical world.
With TFA nearly every shot has dramatic camera movement, the shots cut for the fleeting emotion of the scene and the scenes existing within a fragile web of movie logic that begins to dissolve upon any closer inspection.
Though TLJ is better in this regard, it still feels like the director is driving the focus of the scenes with singleminded intention.
IMO, a stationary camera on a tripod is sometimes the best answer.
The Prequels as well. Overall though I agree. Of the films in its trilogy I think The Last Jedi does the best job. Not neccessary in the sense of connecting to the first six but the look established by The Force Awakens. It’s more grounded and focused.
