Hi FGR, thanks for sharing your fantastic edit.
I’ve been through many edits now, Fallen Knight, Ivan O’s, Hals etc looking for the one that is closest to my tastes and is a version that I can bear to watch in the future, and this is it.
The editing is excellent and the cuts, although major, improve the movie for me and keep it more focused.

The only (subjective)things remaining that still bug me are:
When Hux says “fire” I’d like to see ships actually fire at Poes Xwing. It takes quite a while after the order before the first blasts are fired, but I realise this would have to be added rather than use existing footage.
I would love to see the end to Hux puppy faces.
Remove Hux repeating Kylos command, doesn’t feel the right time for a gag.
When Leia calls Poe over to explain about the base they are heading to, he looks up from an awkward position, almost like he has been caught masturbating or having a pee.
I’d like to cut Poe’s “she pulled them off” line, TLJ does a lot of telling the audience what is happening.
Maybe reinstate Finns attempted sacrifice as he has almost no meaning now which is a shame. Maybe not have Rose save him though to avoid the “saving those we love” cheese.

Other things I’d like to mention is Luke saving Leia. I don’t like what the director has done with force powers, especially the Ar Skype calls, but the damage is now done. Luke saving Leia remotely fits perfectly and is very powerful.
Also, lightsaber guards, fantastic.

Great work, loved it, thank you. Only need now a Hi Res version with higher quality sound 😃

Thanks for the constructive feedback! I appreciate it and I’ll keep it in mind if I ever revisit this edit - I’m glad you enjoyed it!

I am currently in the process of uploading what I hope will be the final version of this cut. This time, nothing is dropped in and has been worked over to flow with the rest of the movie. I also added my own cut of the SC 38 footage. I will make a cut/change list and post it in the future.

On a personal note, I got a reminder that in a month, my annual subscription for my editing software is due. So that means that next month I will have been editing for 1 year. I have never done it before then. I was inspired by some fan edits of The Force Awakens. So I gave it a try and taught myself how to use the software and how to do different editing tricks. My edit; The Last Jedi: A Spark of Hope, was the result of everything I have learned up to this point.

I hope you will enjoy my work. Let me know what you all think, and yes I’m always open to constructive criticism. I don’t know everything and other people have great ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of.

I’d like a link to this - would love to check out the new ideas

Hey Force,

This is my 2nd favorite TLJ edit. But one thing always bothered in this edit me was the introduction of Rose. She just suddenly appears out of nowhere in the old rebel base wearing a weird jacket. Because there is no backstory for this character it just seems strange that this new character is kind of just there and then she disappears. Would you ever do an edit that shows more of Finn and Rose story? Also, it’s been confirmed Rose will be in Ep9 so it would good to have the consistency of Rose being shown on the MF. I’m not criticizing your edit just wondering if you have considered it.

What’s your first favorite? I’d love to check it out!

How about going the other way and completely cutting her out of TLJ? Sure she’s in TROS but there’s a very good chance she can be edited out of that as well 😉

If I were to go back and do anything, it would be to take Rose out completely. BUT… the thing is… we already know Rose, so when we see her, we know her story and we are assessing how much or how little we see of her… but try to view it with fresh eyes like you’ve never seen the original. For example, what if the guy who tasted the salt had a whole story to him in the original… and all we see in the edit is that one part… would we be saying ‘having him in that one scene is jarring because we don’t know his whole story… he just pops in and tastes the salt out of nowhere’ … no. lol My reasoning for briefly seeing Rose is just that… enough to satisfy her being in Ep.9 but a small enough role to minimize her cringe-impact in the original. Hope that makes sense

OK, quick update on V3. I had a hard time finding the line I needed to re-dub a spot, so I recorded it myself. I then ran it through a few filters to smooth it out and fit with the rest of the audio. So now I’m working on the score and then she is done. Score takes me some time because I’m very picky about setting the right mood. Those who have seen my cut of TLJ know this.

I definitely wanna check this out when it’s ready!

I watched the regraded version last night and the colors are just sooo much better than the original… wayy darker tone - it gives the movie a totally different feel imo. My only gripe is how the sun seems to come out in the middle of the opening scene (due to the TFA segment being overcast and TLJ segment being sunny)… even color correction can’t fix this because the sunny TLJ portion has totally different lighting/stronger shadows, so we’ll just have to suspend disbelief for this part… other than that, I strongly suggest check out the new regrade if you liked the Purist version of the Clean cut.
