Brightness and saturation look really good there. One thing I noticed was the blues look a bit too bright, especially in the shadows. I like the grainy nature of this, no sharpening required IMO.

Yes I tried to tone the blues down a bit but it kept throwing off the skintones, which I was trying to get as close as I could to the Technicolor screening still/a film cell still. I got more correct/real balances overall but somehow theres something more exciting to getting just the skintone lifelike, even if its within a bit of a blue haze if that makes sense. 

Like I did this still to match a film cell, and although its not a correct balance overall - the skintone just carries it somehow (for me):

I agree about the sharpening I only added it to the 3P0 clip because it seems to help push the reflective gold effect. The downside is it makes it look artificial.
