Aw, hell, here’s a poll. I’ll check it at the end of the day, about 12 hours from now, and we’ll see. I really don’t much care one way or the other.

And for reference, here’s the clip again: https://vimeo.com/523070856

Hal, I love you bud but really? I can’t think of one good reason to include this line, and you already said you don’t want to!

Haha you’re just scared because “yes” is currently winning.

…what? I don’t have a dog in this fight, I have my own edit.

Oh I didn’t realize, sorry. Thought that was just a hypothetical WIP edit.

I guess you could say, “this is your fight”, am I right?

I agree with ThisIsCreation. Great job, MR! I think the line and pacing feels right, but the cutting back and forth to Luke is a bit abrupt. The second cut to Luke feels like it’s clearly the same camera move as the first. Can you hold on Rey instead of cutting back for “This is your fight”? I think it’s better to see Rey for this line, anyway, so we can see her thinking it over.

I’m confused what happened, is the line not being implemented now? I’d be ok with “You’ll take both sabers to exegol” being removed since its better left unsaid until the audience sees what happens later, I feel like the line is basically just an on the nose way of directly telling the audience the other ones for Kylo.

I really like that sequence for the dialogue. Flawless in that regard. However, it is a little weird to cut back and forth and see what was obviously the same shot resume after a cut. But exactly that happens here and there in Star Wars.

I know I’ve made some very poor decisions recently.

I too would love to see the line about the sabers being removed, it makes the kylo taking the saber scene way more powerful.

Y’know, could keyframed zooming remove the slight camera zoom during that second shot of Luke? That might help sell it so that the first shot zooms in and then we merely cut back to that angle again.

It’s not a zoom, it’s a dolly/boom (the camera is moving) so it’d look pretty odd. I think in this scenario it’d be better to just stay on the shot of Rey.

MR, that’s a much better placement of the line. I still feel like it’s a bit unnecessary? But I guess if the idea is to remove “you’ll take both sabers” then it does have some purpose.

MR’s placement of the line is perfect, I say either go with that version or don’t alter it at all.

Ooh okay, I really like that a lot, MR. That’s for sure the best use of this line so far, and I hope we can get this perfected. Probably much better than keeping the “take both sabers” line (that I like for some reason, so I have authority on this!!!1!). This is good.

I’ve played it over and over again and as much as I REALLY wanted to keep the close up on Luke as he says “but this is your fight” I’m gonna ditch it on my next pass and just change the timing on Rey’s close up. That way I can tighten up the audio and seamlessly go into her standing up as if the say “I don’t have the way finder” as her last excuse to be negative. Luke gives her one more reassuring smile and says “You have everything you need”. The emotion seems perfect running it that way.

I’ll see if I can do another pass tomorrow…

Is Nev finished with the colour correction of this scene or is someone else picking up the gauntlet?

I’ll look forward to it. I’d say, too, that it’ll be something like that or not to include the line.

I may have been looking at this for far too many hours but I’m not happy with the timing change on Rey’s close-up. I’ve had to slow parts down to almost 50% just to get the sequence timing right.

I’m open to scrutiny on this one…?

For me, the biggest highlight is the removal of the “take the lightsabers” line. I just really like it.

I agree, great work! It really helps that Rey blinks and moves her eyes like she had been distracted.

There really isn’t anything to disagree with lol.

It literally just gives more agency to Rey’s character at the cost of nothing special.

I guess the argument could be made that some audience members would forget about Leia’s lightsaber and be confused when Rey started using it on Exegol, but now that it’s a more distinctive color I don’t think that’s a problem.

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

^ That’s a good point, too.
