The Force Awakens was by far my favorite of the Sequel Trilogy, but even my terrible taste in movies (I still think Captain Marvel's a decent movie) can point out the film's faults. This edit really goes the extra mile in alleviating those faults when possible, and softening the blow in cases where the problem is unavoidable. Kylo Ren is far more intimidating, the buildup to his past and face reveal are much better handled, and the added audio cues add some weight to the scenes in question. There was one scene in particular, however, that I don't quite get. In one scene, BB-8 has a moment with R2-D2 that I don't quite understand. Was BB-8 trying to communicate with R2, who was too busy piecing together a map to Luke's whereabouts? I'm not sure. Yes, Rey is still something of a Mary Sue, but I feel this edit manages to make her OP-ness just a little less jarring. Either that, or my suspension of disbelief for sci-fi fantasies is just a little too broad for me to have a valid opinion. Regardless, I recommend that people not only watch this edit, but accept it as their headcanon, because all Disney cares about is Woke Twitter.
Thank you, DigModiFicaTion. I watched this movie in the cinema and while I felt entertained, I felt a bit betrayed since I had such high hopes and was really excited, however I felt like watching a rip off of Episode IV, like many watchers did. This edit, however, made me care about the characters and what happens to them, I had to watch it all the way through. I love when an edit exposed what the makers of a movie wanted to achieve in the first place. To me, this edit makes the movie worth of being Star Wars.
