<em>REY NOBODY</em> - The 'Official' Fan-Editing Thread
Time

Uh oh.

We have a code red in this thread!

Better stop the arguing or at least move it to the TROS discussion section before mods get involved. I’m glad you’re all sensible enough people to cool it down a little for the time being, but moving forward, let’s keep this thread open for Rey Nobody related fan editing ideas and experimentations! 👍

The Rise of Skywalker: Ascendant (WIP)
Time

While I agree that something should be done to save the pacing on Pasanna, it’s a huge no from me on cutting Lando’s introduction.

Edit:

I would also argue that having Lando’s first appearance be the next time we see would make that already random moment even more ridiculous. He would literally be appearing completely out of the blue. At least the theatrical sets his role up in some kind of way.

How many good third movies in a trilogy can you name?

If The Lost World had been a faithful adaptation of the novel, I wonder if it would’ve been an excellent film on par with the first.

Yes!

In fact, I’ll take it a step further and say BOTH should’ve been closer to the novels.

That being said, I love the original Jurassic Park as is. If I had to rank it against all the sequels, it would be the order they were released. I believe each is worse than the last.

SOLO - A subtler remaster of 'The Bold One' (a work in progress)

I played around with both the blu-ray and 4K blu-ray, and the 10 bit color of the HDR version definitely has more information that can be recovered, of course it is more demanding on a computer to work with and you have to deal with the HDR to SDR tonemapping as well.

I appreciate you taking at look at it yourself. Let me know if you have anything that can help with this project.

I feel like anyone who can understand that kind of terminology is better suited to this than I am. 😄

I was taking a look back at ‘The Bold One’ and began more and more to notice the inconsistent levels of contrast between scenes. Specifically the entire Mimban portion of the film. It almost, just almost, seems as if the original Reddit user had applied a heavy sharpening filter over that entire section. Can someone confirm this? I certainly hope it isn’t the case, but it would explain why that portion looks overly fake compared to the rest. I might even have to swap it out with the Bluray footage to use as a base.

Not sure if this was already addressed, but why do you want to remove the Order 66 montage?

It has been explicitly stated:

Problem is, you have to take the films on their own, and in that case, the music and the emotion of the whole montage is way out of whack with our investment in these non-characters. Plus, I feel like cutting around to random planets that we’ve never seen before is rather un-Star Wars. Basically, the sequence had to go.

I could probably write an essay with a word count in the thousands as to why I think this is the right change to make for me. Suffice to say, while Star Wars has always been a story with an epic scope, its always been rather grounded and focused in on the main characters and their stories. The Order 66 montage breaks that convention and tries to reach for some (in my opinion unearned) emotion that, in my version of ROTS, I don’t want to have that be a factor at this point in the story.
