I’ve been a bit busy with life and all and wouldn’t be able to do anything new, but if you two are interested, I can send you the two versions I came up with. My “Standard” and then me playing with the “No Vader Until the Corridor.” Rouge and Hal you can DM if interested!
I don’t have any threads, just person edits I’ve made based on other edits. I wanted to try the Less Vader idea an see how it works out. I personally like the idea that you don’t see him until the corridor scene, kind of like an unexpected surprise first time watching it.
I personally didn’t have a problem with the God Speed Rebels line regardless. Also, the idea of “opening a can of worms” is irrelevant because of Han’s line in Empire Strikes back anyway as Tammer5 brought up.
Oh man, been awhile since I’ve looked at this. I did complete an edit with all the mentions and views of Vader will the end. I can certainly use your suggestions Hal.
To make sure I understand your suggestion, which I totally will try if I got the time, would be to keep all the lines via Tarkin talking about Vader, but the only “visual” of Vader is him getting out of the bath (But remove the rest of the Krennic stuff) and the hallway scene? I’ve also have NOT touched the floppy disk scene, it keeps the tension which I like.
I admit it is hard to look at it in the eyes of a newbie, since a lot of the changes you’ve made are good and help improve on the movie.
The hardest part is the whole Palpatine deform thing. We can logically say he is “unleashing” his dark side … or his “true” form in a sense. But when you watch it, I understand it does feel kind of random. I think I am kinda ok with it, but I do understand that is a bit harder to logically explain it, since originally he was getting deformed by his own lightning …
Also, I get the confusion maybe from the jump of Anakin has the dream, gets up and walks out and then goes to Palpatine and basically says “You summoned me?” I kind of pause at that too and say “wait … what?”
Granted Hal, that is some minor critiques from me because over all, I love it.
Work Poppa Work! 😉 To me, personally, I would like those two added things you’ve been talking about to complete the TLJ edit for me! Haha!
I agree with RogueLeader on that reasoning. Also, logically, their planet killer has been destroyed in TFA. They have plenty of big ole ships that could lay waste to an island. Heck, a Dreadnaught would do it as it was implied being a “fleet killer.”
I am fine with the line personally. Yoda has a sense of humor even in the OT.
Gabe, I appreciate the any effort to remove Space Walk Leia, but it is a bit too rushed as Poppa brought up, we lose the impact on the timing of the events/scenes that have been swapped around.
At one time I was dabbing around some of the scenes that have leia at the door with her hand out to show she was conscience and all for a bit and survived the attack … but it was hard to time right music wise and visually too.
Time will tell huh? The new Star Wars trilogy seems to love on space horses.
Same thought Chain, I’m a bit confused too.
The line is fine … If anything that could be trimmed, is the dialogue where Vader said “yes master” a half dozen times in a short scene. It’s like … really over done to be honest.
I dunno, the whole hugs thing is fine as it’s been trimmed down a bit. The moma joke was too much. Recall that Poe is a pretty cocky guy. The whole point is he is trying to distract Hux to gain some time. Admittedly, Hux is the kind of guy to be caught off since he is so into himself and demands such awe inspiring respect/attention … but isn’t wise enough to catch on to such things.
I like this, I’ll be happy to take a look at this!
No chainsaw! I got a Star Wars marathon on the thanksgiving break, so it’s all about me!
I saw that on his thread and it’s so seamless. How he does that stuff…
Been awhile since I’ve checked out your thread and I like the whole Phasma thing! Very nice touch! Can you send me a link for your latest version.
Also, to kind of continue the topic about Jedi Boi. On Hal’s thread, we were tinkering with extending Canto Bite(s) scene that includes the balcony scene where you first see the kids. By trimming things up a little bit and removing Rose’s line about wanting to punch a hole or whatever she says about Canto, it helps connect the kids without too much more baggage from Canto. … here’s what it does: A.) We see Jedi Boi and the kids where he tries to stand up to whip dude and B.) Finn sees the ugly with Canto and the Galaxy (remember how “sheltered” he is).
I like this approach since although I applaud the heavy trimming of canto, especially the removal of the chase scene, it does feel rush as is. By reinserting these scenes, we achieve the necessary connection with the necessary trimming intact.
Here is what Hal came up with after we played around.
Personally I wouldn’t go the flashback route, as interesting of a concept as it is.
Also, I didn’t get to comment on your earlier clip with the Luke/Dream sequence. Wow! I like the direction on this. I was just imagining what kind of pain you are going to go through painting Rey out on some of those scenes. Perfect music transitions by the way.
I just finished watching the recent edit and I like the movie overall with all your choices!
The only “issue” i had is the scene we first see Yoda on Kashyyk in which Chewbacca was painted out. Once Yoda gets intel and is talking with Gree you hear two different wookie sounds essentially having a conversation in the background. I remember some pages back it wasn’t possible to isolate and remove some of that, but it does stick out to me.
Other than that, once again a fabulous and high quality edit that I enjoyed all your decisions and the work that was done! It is pretty much impossible to watch the vanilla prequels when we have these fantastic edits!
Very nice Neverar, I like this more than the first attempt.
I like the more “dark” side feel of it since I think that was kind of implied in the movie but instead made it feel like her focusing.
I thought the transitions is good as is actually, but as always, curious to see alternative ways to see if it is an improvement.
Lastly, I too would like to hear Finn’s call out to be the last thing you hear. It would work as both a reminder of the pain Kylo has called and almost a plead for help/save me kind of thing.
All in all, I like this direction a whole lot!
Still get errors …
Anyone else getting a “download quota exceeded for this file” message when downloading V6 on Google Chrome? How do I get around this issue? Anyone?
Got the same issue, we’ll just need to wait since lots of people are downloading the file.
I agree with ziggy’s comments about 66 over 67.
All in all I like the concept very much!
Looking great as usually adywan. Really looking forward to seeing this once it is live!
