Exactly, I don’t know that perfectly white balancing every scene makes it better when there may be artistic intent behind the grade. That’s not to say you can’t make it better, though.
This is what bothers me so much when I see people complaining about color correcting. I think sometimes people misunderstand the “correcting” part of the phrase. That said, of course it’s fair to have personal opinions on grades.
Something people miss too is sometimes it’s not just the grade. Like the Star destroyers being so blue, that’s the lighting playing a part as well.
Absolutely. Where a blanket sweep “look” or “style” does become an issue, though, is when an entire film in a trilogy doesn’t match the other two films. It makes for a really jarring viewing experience when watching back to back to back. Lord of the Rings is a great example of a trilogy that succeeded at having a consistent aesthetic and color grade across all three films.
