I haven’t got time to watch the whole flick but I watched most of it, including all the changes. It’s a very nice edit, I guess most ideas work fine, even if I must admit that I don’t agree on the most radical (but for people who can’t stand Leia’s spacewalk, this is the best that can be done).
I particularly love the following changes :
Tweaked Music during Luke’s saber toss so it’s not a joke
Brillant 😃 Tell me, is your audio of this scene compliant with the theatrical cut (and Hal9000’s edit as well) ? I’d like to use your audio alteration on Hal9000 edit.
Cut Luke drinking milk (just that shot, not the scene)
I no longer mind the weird Luke’s drinking milk shot but this is a very fine way ot deal with it. I probably like it best than the theatrical cut of the scene.
Cut Maz’s line about having a physical relationship with the codebreaker
The deleted shuttle scene of Finn and Rose heading back “where we belong” was restored here as well. Not only does it give more resolution to Finn and Rose’s now-trimmed escape, it’s also a callback to the restored deleted scene when Poe gives Finn his jacket.
I fully agree. But I guess it would work better if you had kept the final confrontation with Phasma 😕
I like the following reinsertions as well :
Reinsert Kylo’s line about Rey’s parents in the Jakku desert
Added back Poe’s “A what now?” when talking about the battering ram cannon
Yeah, very good call here ! You remove the lame “Death star” reference while keeping a line that bears no issue on itself.
Reinsert Rey’s triple-tie combo
- I like this shot, and while it may be a little “too good” on Rey’s part, it works for me as the Falcon’s entrance to Crait.
I think the same after watching this shot again. Besides the shot looks great.
Reinsert Finn’s full effort to sacrifice himself
I don’t really see the benefits of the previous change so it’s cool to add it back.
(this would be very close to be the cutlist of my “perfect edit” mixing yours and Hal’s that I will likely never do 😄 )
