I don’t know why Disney is so allergic to the episode numbers for the films. You would think that would make it easier for someone to navigate these menus.

They do seem to be pretty good about putting them in chronological order on Disney+'s interface, though, instead of in alphabetical order. That’s nice to see.

Episode VIII : The Last Jedi - Discussion * <strong><em>SPOILER THREAD</em></strong> *

For me it is similar to having the PT end with Anakin the hero, and then introduce him as Darth Vader in the next movie

That’s…exactly what I wanted the PT to do.

Well, one of two ways (the second being you end episode II presuming that he’s dead, then Vader is a mysterious masked figure in episode III about whom you don’t get answers until Empire).

The ending reveal in The Last Jedi was very easy to predict.

I think the topic title is interesting “the ending was very easy to predict.” Sure, all the clues were right out there in front of you to predict… but did you? I knew something was up the moment we saw him (the hair) but I wasn’t able to figure out what exactly until the film revealed itself. The closest I got was when Kylo finally sliced through him (my thought - did he die already and now he’s a force ghost?), but when the real trick was revealed it was definitely a “holy shit” moment. And of course that’s what it was, a magic trick, and like the best magic tricks it occurred in plain sight.

Maybe try experimenting a little with CRF encoding values instead of targeting a bitrate? Quality will be more consistent that way, but file sizes will vary some.

I can’t recommend a CRF value for h265 though, that’s out of my area of expertise. I’d suggest 18 for h264 with slower/slowest encoding settings, but I honestly have no idea how h265 behaves with encoding as I never really use it.

I think Luke’s mere presence (as well as Luke intentionally riling Ben up with little gestures like wiping the dust off his shoulder) has Ben seeing red. He’s not thinking rationally, which is the same reason why he ignores Hux’s tactical advice. Luke used Kylo’s own emotions to his advantage.

Yep, exactly this.

Up until the lightsaber I honestly just thought that Luke cleaned himself up and came through the back door.

Yep, this. I knew something was up when the lightsaber came out, but I didn’t know what, and when the “what” was revealed I let out an internal “Holy shit.”

So no, I don’t think it was easy to predict.

Who suggested the two films objectively clash with each other, or suggested that anyone who disagrees is doing so in bad faith?

The post that started this round of debate, maybe? At least, that’s 100% the read I had on it:

I applaud that article writer for acknowledging the obviousness of Abrams & Johnson’s clashing ideas, rather than trying to rationalize it away

Does anyone have any ideas for an alternate, non-gungan way to reveal Amidala’s queenship before this scene?

You mean instead of the shot of the ship landing (The one in the clip you just posted)? So, like just showing it parked in the forest or something?

No, the reveal that Padme is the Queen and not just a handmaiden.
