I just re-watched the original ANH:R. Loved it again. The way the scene in Ben’s hut plays is so much better. It feels so natural. It would be good to get rid of some of that flat lighting on the Death Star. Compared to Rogue One the beautiful sets look very uniform and a bit lacking in appropriate gravitas. Vader also seems a lot less menacing, sandwiched between Rogue One and ESB. JEJ hadn’t quite found the character yet. The thing that confuses me in every version is what the rebel pilots are actually doing in the trench run.
You have each pass of three fighters. A leader and two wingmen. The wingmen are doing something to give the leader time for his one shot. While turbo lasers fire you can imagine (though we see little evidence) that they are picking guns off to reduce risk. But when the fighters come in they sway too and fro which present a bit of a challenge for Vader and the boys but it does take them a while to take down the fighters. Maybe adding a rear facing weapon or having the fighters blast chunks off the trench to act as an obstacle would make that sequence make a bit more sense. Alternatively have rebels enter the trench behind the ties and have them fail to pick them off. It’s always kind of bugged me but much more this time. Good fortune with the continued work. Hope we have a change of regime tomorrow. As soon as my ship comes in I will send a donation. Money is really tight at the moment.
