I don't really want to babble on about this but here is what I see in the Bobba fett scene.
1. The Falcon fires it's engines and flys through the junk.
2. Slave 1 fires it's engines and follows the falcon in close pursuit through the junk but with no intention to attack.
3. We are shown another shot of the falcon being pursued in close proximity by Slave 1 and both ships are now exiting the junk.
4. We are now inside the cockpit of Slave 1 Boba fett is looking through a periscope of sorts. We then see Boba fett swivel in his cockpit chair while the falcon gets further away suggesting he is no longer following them.
now on point 4... is the periscope forward facing or is it off to the side as in are we seeing a side shot of Boba fett facing forward in the cockpit of slave 1 or are we behind Boba fetts chair and he has turned 90 degrees to the right only to swivel back to forward facing?
In my mind the periscope is forward facing for ergonomics.. Meaning he has cut off pursuit and this is a side view of the cockpit.
No offense, but I think you're creating a problem where there is none. We know that Boba Fett is a bounty hunter, we know his job is to track and capture Han, we see him lay in wait, and then begin to pursue the MF, and then later on Cloud City, we see the Empire has laid a trap. The Empire could only have discovered where Solo was headed thanks to Boba Fett tracking them, and then we see Boba in the carbon freezing chamber there to claim his prize.
This is one of those cases where the movie expects the audience to be smart enough to take these pieces and assemble them into a coherent whole without needing to be spoon-fed.
You see to be trying to find holes so that they can be plugged up by new shots and changes, but this isn't a case of holes, it's breathing room for the story to come alive in the viewer's imagination.
Is the periscope forward-facing or off to the side? What does it matter, we know that Fett is a bounty hunter hunting Solo and we see that set-up paid off at Cloud City.
I'm not trying to be pedantic, I just think this is not the issue that it's being made out to be.
