  1. Well, it would have been downgraded, as cameras aren’t exactly the greatest in the dark - it’s far easier to shoot something a bit brighter and downgrade than sacrifice image quality with a tonne of grain. But AUJ is nowhere near ungraded, did you see the first trailer? 😛 That looked more ungraded.
  2. To be honest, it’s not that dark outside with the fathiers at all, and clearly brighter than what actual night would look like. And though that part of the film is utterly pointless to me, I have to say, though I was scrutinising that sequence on my second viewing (as I’d seen your disfavourable comparison to the AUJ warg chase scene beforehand), I thought the vfx on the fathiers was fine, and way more convincing than the wargs from the early scene in AUJ (which itself was not helped by the dreadful overbrightening and bloom-ing of almost every shot in that film, presumably to aid brightness for the 3D viewings. The original vfx shots as seen in WETA’s videos look way better without the grading)
  3. Nah, it was his ESB one, the real version of which had ceased to exist by that point, having just been split in half by Rey and Ren
  4. Perhaps that bit was replaced by the statement of Poe’s Theme in the film.
  5. Made a simple OST/FYC combo playlist based on CGCJ's Analysis, and shamelessly ripped off the formatting from Jay's OST/FYC playlists for TFA and Rogue One (Sorry Jay ) 01) OST 07 The Rebellion is Reborn (Concert Arrangement) 02) FYC 01 Escape 03) OST 02 Ahch-To Island 04) OST 03 Revisiting Snoke 05) OST 04 The Supremacy 06) FYC 04 Admiral Holdo 07) FYC 05 Fun With Finn and Rose 08) OST 06 Old Friends 09) OST 08 Lesson One 10) OST 09 Canto Bight 11) FYC 09 The Master Codebreaker 12) OST 10 Who Are You? 13) OST 11 The Fathiers 14) OST 12 The Cave 15) OST 13 The Sacred Jedi Texts 16) FYC 12 Rey's Journey 17) FYC 13 A New Alliance 18) FYC 14 Holdo's Resolve 19) OST 15 "Chrome Dome" 20) FYC 16 The Battle of Crait 21) FYC 17 The Spark 22) FYC 18 The Last Jedi 23) OST 19 Peace and Purpose 24) FYC Finale Runtime = 1hr 31m
  6. See, I’d randomly come to the conclusion that the map was to the first Jedi Temple, which would make more sense. But in TFA they keep going on about how it’s a map to Skywalker. And yeah, the speeders didn’t seem to do any damage.
  7. Nah, I wasn’t suggesting that the projection and Ren and Rey’s connections were similar. I think Kylo believed that Rey was using the same projection that Luke ended up doing (though she wasn’t) and that that was the setup in the film for what Luke does later. I didn’t really notice that until seeing the film a second time.
  8. Kylo alludes to projection being possible, as he says to Rey the first time their weird connection occurs “You can’t be doing this, the effort would kill you” (paraphrased), and that’s why Kylo asks “can you see my surroundings?”. At least that’s what I thought.
  9. Speaking of walkers, how on earth did they get down there? There were some on Snoke’s cut-in-half ship, so there could have been some on the remaining Star Destroyers I guess, but how were they delivered? 🤔
  10. And then that name will catch on amongst the masses... “Why isn’t the Last Jedi theme in The Last Jedi Theme Song Track??!”
  11. I’ve seen reports on the internet that DC fans have been using bots to lower the score of TLJ, due to Disney’s ownership of both Lucasfilm and Marvel) and raise the score of Justice League (Which is now around 80%). But that does sound ridiculously far-fetched.
  12. Ah I forgot to say, I saw Hoult filming a bit of this in Oxford about a month ago - there was a huge board of war posters put up, and horses and soldiers in the streets, which was pretty cool to see
  13. I’d probably rank it below RoTS but above AotC. There’s some great highlights, but I thought the action music was a bit fragmented, and the force theme a bit too prevalent.
