  1. I think the music straight after the crawl in AotC was lifted from TPM
  2. This is totally what I expected to happen.. I thought it would be a nice parallel to ESB when he was young and naive and said doing so would be impossible
  3. Someone has to think up how the shot will be framed and how the (virtual) camera moves around the environment. The job of the DP and cinematographer might be slightly different between live action and animated pictures but id think they are largely the same
  4. basically it is lukes scene on crait I wrote about above, then resistance and co. is able to sneak out the back of the base because rey used the force to move a bunch of rocks out of the way (that was blocking the exit). whats left of the resistance gathers in the falcon and takes off while leia gives a little 'the resistance is reborn' speech. huge rebel fanfare blast as the falcon takes off into hyperspace. then there are a bunch of kids telling stories in a barn when their boss (for lack of a better term) tells them to get back to work (paraphrasing here). one kid goes outside and uses the force to pick up a broom.. he has a ring with the resistance symbol on it and he starts swinging the broom like a lightsaber
  5. not disagreeing with you but fan service or not this was one of the moments that the audience in my theater laaughed the most at. also at the start when chewie is about to eat a porg but a whole bunch of other porgs look sad at him
  6. Whenever a major character or thing appeared, it was teased a little bit right before it actually appeared. for instance when yoda appears you just see the corner of his ear before the camera pans over and he is revealed. when the falcon appears on crait you see its shadow on the ground before it comes in to frame and the rebel fanfare blasts. when luke walks in to the base on crait all you see is his figure behind some smoke before he steps out and he is revealed
  7. I didnt mind that as much as I did the emperors theme being used for no real reason other then rey was being tortured by snoke and it was similar to the emperor torturing luke
  8. I kind of like the Luke projection/death scene.. him confronting Kylo Ren on crait is a very badass moment (some might say more so than the Vader hallway scene from R1). He doesnt really slump over and die like others have said.. There is a very cool moment where Kylo tries to strike luke but luke dodges matrix-style. After toying with kylo for a bit, luke gives kylo the old "if you strike me down ill become more powerful then you can imagine' spiel and allows kylo to strike him. however kylos lightsaber goes straight through luke and does not affect luke at all. kylo is confused and slowly inserts the tip of his lightsaber into luke. then it is revealed he is actually on Ach To all along and not on Crait, he is meditating floating above this rock. He is very exhausted, then he disappears and his cloak floats away in the wind.
  9. I think I wouldve preferred if she had an actual death scene. In the movie Holdo sacrifices her and pilots the resistance ship into the first order ship (a la Star Trek 2009), crippling it. In the movie it is a very dramatic moment, it is also the point where the plotline with Rey/Kylo reach a climax and where the Finn/Rose plotline reaches its climax. If it were up to me I'd have made Leia sacrifice herself instead of Holdo
  10. I was kind of expecting this to be her death scene. The camera lingers on her before she finally twitches her fingers and her eyes open.. then she reaches her arm out and floats back to the ship
  11. One cool part that stuck with me is Rey pushed Luke back and he falls backwards, but he uses the force to save himself from falling on the rocks
  12. I mean, it makes sense to be both. The main title shows up a couple times, once even I think when BB8 does something cool. cant really remember. Just saw the movie at 12:00 am on the 14th in Melbourne Australia. going again tomorrow afternoon. I tried paying attention to the soundtrack but I ended up just enjoying the movie. Tomorrow I will try and take more mental notes
  13. the short flute segment right at the start of ANH is also right at the start of this movie the bouncing Finn/action motif returns for about 20 seconds in the beginning March of the Resistance has a really cool and impressive at the start when all the resistance bombers appear (this shot is in a trailer) Jedi Steps is pretty much the Ach To theme There is no real theme for Snoke, just that quiet male choir from TFA It was nice hearing Yodas theme again but I think it might just be lifted from the ESB suite. Luke and Leia is back with (from what I can tell) a new performance Overall the soundtrack seems like an 'upgrade' to that of TFA. TFA seems more basic while TLJ develops the themes and twists them in new ways
