Also, if anyone who’s watched the workprint wants to give feedback on anything that stood out - bad or good - I’d appreciate it! There’s no pressure, if you just want to watch the workprint, but if you do want to give your thoughts on it, then I’m very happy to hear them.
I watched parts of it yesterday, not fully due to unforeseen distraction and whatnot, so I’ll try again and do a combo of your dialogue change script and “see” it on screen. Of course, it’s a work print so its not meant to be a perfect reflection on it be “complete” … even let alone if some things are not “possible” to make it seamless.
I will say though, one spot that I think is a standout is removing the dialogue with Rey in the cave. Personally, it was a mistake to have Rey “explaining” things. It took me out of the scene and had me feel, nothing. No impact before he actually speaking in that scene.
By simply removing the voice over, we are now engaged. It has more impact. It’s just better. Don’t tell us what is going on, let’s feel/see it for ourselves.
Anyway, I’ll do my best to sit down and watch it since I have to be frank, I just don’t like TLJ so it’s hard to motivate myself. (As always, for those reasons, if you like the movie as is, or like it with improvements, please enjoy it and more power to you. I hold nothing against people liking or disliking this movie or this trilogy in general. That’s great, it is! I wish I did, but I can’t. I think I need to add this kind of disclaimer in my signature so I won’t take up too much of people’s time with this. Lol.)
