Name Something You Unreservedly Love About TROS (SPOILERS) — Page 4

Many little things…

Rey’s new saber being the top of her old staff from The Force Awakens.
That Kylo points in the same manner as his dad when he wants someone to be quiet! (Han to C3PO usually!)
Rey referring to Leia as ‘Master’ - and just the fact that Leia was now training Rey.
Chewie’s emotional greieving scene upon finding out Leia had passed, that ‘got’ me.
Luke’s final lesson to Rey on Ach-To - the reminder that confronting fear is the destiny of a Jedi (a message that resonates foreveryone in today’s political climate, or where people just accept things they know to be wrong or they don’t agree with).
C3PO’s humor - it was both funny and on the ‘mark’.
 

Jedit: a few more…

Rey now piloting an X-Wing instead of dreaming of piloting of one whilst wearing the helmet back on Jakku in TFA.
Luke reaching out to lift his X-Wing was just like he did in Empire on Dagobah.
Ben’s shrug - just like his dad.
Kylo’s ‘be quiet’ gesture - again, just like his dad.
Kylo and Han’s conversation.
Ben holding Rey like Han held Leia in ROTJ when she was injured.

I don’t want to clog up this thread with off topic discussion but since this is where most of the lightspeed skipping thoughts are I wanted to follow up with just a few more of my own. I think the concept is self explanatory, it doesn’t actually need any extra setup, what I find missing is the payoff.

I don’t understand why they needed to jump more than once though, it just seemed like a random Guardians of the Galaxy scene they wanted to copy.

The lightspeed skipping discussion has got to stop. I regret even bringing it up.

Anyway, in honor of the master John Williams’s Oscar nom today, one thing I love wholeheartedly about the film is Williams’s renditions of Kylo Ren’s theme, post redemption, in particular when Ben Solo arrives on Exegol:

I’ve listened to this almost everyday since the film came out. It’s a brief piece, but it’s probably my favorite musical moment of the film, and possibly my favorite moment of the film on the whole.

They had to jump more than once, because the TIEs forgot they can’t jump into hyperspace.

I liked Chewie loosing it over Leia’s death.
This was probably the best movie for 3P0.
The chemistry between Rey, Poe and Finn.
Keri Russell’s eyes.

No one is going to agree with me on this, but I absolutely love the lightspeed skipping.

I love this too. And I don’t mind lightspeed tracking either. The idea that people complained about those things in TLJ and TROS kind of flies over my head. It’s such a minor and fun thing. Like, get over it, man.

Han’s return was maybe one of my favorite scenes this year. It was the emotional crux of the entire second half of the film working for me.

My mother, who hasn’t cried at any movie I’ve ever watched with her, sniffled during that part.

I’m just here because I’m driving tonight.

The end line from Han…

(where have all these chopped onions suddenly appeared from?)

No fate but what we make - apart from force dyads, of course!

I don’t know about love, but I’m so glad they used a new recording of the opening fanfare and not the same tinny one that they used for both TFA and TLJ.

I don’t think I’ll ever understand why they used the same one for TLJ. They recorded a new one, and even Johnson seemed to be under the impression it was used in the final film.

IIRC, the version in the film and on the isolated score is slightly different than the one on the soundtrack. Someone matched the waveforms up and the iso score was different than the TLJ and TFA soundtracks (which were identical)

There were two things I liked:

  1. The festival on Passana. Basically the only few minutes JJ dedicated to world building, showing that it is a big galaxy full of diverse life forms with their own culture and traditions.

  2. C3PO’s role.

+1 to these!
