Bbghost takes on the monumental task of melding three very distinct, very flawed films. The result is something surprisingly special. By stripping down the ST to just a story about two individuals and their ying-yang relationship, bbghost is able to present a character driven epilogue to the OT.

I'm someone who emotionally connected with some of the more mythic character arcs of the ST, conceptually. Ben is someone who feels shackled by his identity. Rey is someone who is in search of identity. Unfortunately, this dual narrative was complicated by haphazard plotting and fan service (especially in the third film). The biggest problem in this edit is still that third film. That strong character focus is still jarringly swept aside in favor of a out there plot. Bbghost does do a great job in making that transition feel less jarring here though. The focus is on the characters. Overall, probably my favorite way to view three movies that I'm very conflicted about.
