Technically a well put together edit, and everything removed certainly wasn't missing. What I can remember from Canto Bight is that someone is riding an animal, and that doesn't seem to aid the story. Likewise Poe's Coup d'spaceship. It actually became clear how much stuff in this movie is unnecessary; bravo for making that plain to see. There are too many named characters, weak exposition and pointless words. The movie still suffers from this even after DonKamillo's edit, but now it's almost bearable. I think this edit is superior to the original. Watching the original again is out of the question, for me.
Despite having cut 50 minutes, the narrative still feels coherent. (I'm certain more can be cut...) All the visual trims and rearrangements are done with care. Same goes for the audio editing. DonKamillo has crafted something less boring and tedious out of a boring, tedious and ultimately forgettable movie. Well done!
