The shot where Ben Solo arrives on Exogol and the camera reveals an Imperial TIE next to a Rebel X-wing.

One of these has a hyperdrive

I guess I’m just a miserable killjoy who sees a short range fighter without a Hyperdrive and wonders how the hell it got halfway across the galaxy.

Should have been a later model. Also the markings on the X-Wing don’t match the OT and the helmet Rey wears looks weird.

Uhhhh on topic… I enjoy the Kimiji sequences both the way it all looks, the John Williams cameo, and the Force Link Duel.

When Rey discovers the extent of her force strength as she destroys the ship. I loved that moment in the cinema.

I mostly edit and mix sound, mostly.

Similar to TLJ, the cinematography was incredible. It didn’t make up for the poor plotting, but it was very nice to look at.

Well, outside of the Sith Seizure planet.

The ‘friendship’ theme is wonderful.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

The movie has an overarching theme of the importance of heroes, and the power that one selfless act has to inspire others.

After Rey force-heals the serpent, she says to BB-8 “I just transferred a bit of life from me to him. You would have done the same.” Then, when BB-8 finds D-0, he transfers him a bit of energy, allowing D-0 to power up and, later, to provide key information about Exegol. So Rey’s good deed inspires another good deed, which leads to an even greater good being done for the galaxy.

Also, just as Anakin sacrificed himself to save someone, all of his descendants ended up doing the same:

  • Luke sacrificed himself to save the Resistance
  • Leia sacrificed herself to save Ben
  • Ben sacrificed himself to save Rey
  • Threepio sacrificed his memories to save the galaxy.

That’s why I love Hal’s “For Skywalker” scene: It takes that idea even further.

You’ve got to ask yourself one question: “Am I making Carrie Fisher’s ghost proud?”
Well, are ya, punk?

Did they force heal Luke’s X-wing?
I just had to suspend disbelief and not think about stuff like the ship being under water for 30 years. Or his door being made out of parts of the X-wing. The door Chewie tears off its hinges.
Or Anakin’s Saber magically being made whole again.

I still really enjoyed the movie.

It was probably underwater for something like 6 years, I think.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.
