DigModiFicaTion comes through again - You don't even realize the small changes that make a film better. I'm sure studio heads all have their notes and things to add in order to make this work for this more marketable, but DigModiFicaTion isn't constrained by those limits thankfully
Rouge one is perhaps my top 3 star wars movie. It puts the WAR in STAR WARS!
With this edit it is even more focused and exciting! No cringy references or backstories, just pure action adventure with likable characters.
But i think there is more to be cut to make it even more enjoyable.
flawless cuts, flawless audio and video quality!
This is my go to version!
Totally forgot to review your project on R1.
Simply put: i loved it, so much better pacing, no silly jokes or redundant dialogues/scenes. I liked R1 in the original version, but yours is awesome.
Thank you for that!
I loved this edit. I watched it today for the second time and every edited or cut scene makes sense or was redundent or distracting in the first place in the original version. In my very personal opinion, I would have liked it, if the battle of Scarif would have been cut down more, since there is a lot of fighting going on with noone I care about in the scenes and it feels like it's been dragging on for too long. There are some nice effects, but there is also a lot of random shooting, firing and exploding that does not add a lot to the story itself. I lost a bit of patience and care in these scenes. But besides that personal preference, this edit is great and forever another fixture in my star wars saga collection, thank you again!
- 3rd act is the best part of the film, and it is mostly intact from the original.
- The re-scoring! Editor feels the moment, and adjust it as such.
- Color correction is well done. Although some might prefer the original.
- Boring character stories and arcs mostly left intact.
- Saw Gerrera... just his character... ugh!
- The Rebellion/Resistance comes over as a bunch of whiners.
In my honest opinion, the Fan Edit "The Battle of Scarif" is a better fit for this movie. I just can't get through the first 2 acts of this movie. This is not the fault of the Editor, but of the Creators of the movie itself. The characters are bland and boring, the story is to convenient and nonsensical, and last but not least, this movie didn't need to exist. It's a badly explained plot that just derails the Epic Battle in the final act. The editor did his best to make the movie watchable, and for some it has become just that... watchable. That is not enough for me.
