Three new edits this week. Two from HAL 9000 and one a long time coming from TM2YC!
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker gets an overhaul to serve as a conclusion to the Star Wars saga. Pacing, character journeys, and story continuity are improved via an unprecedented fan editing collaboration. A layer of polish and care applied to a relentlessly fast-paced film. Subtle character tweaks. And a few new surprises.
I do not consider this a full-blown fan edit, as I am primarily hybridizing existing official versions of the film, keeping changes I can appreciate and excluding those I feel hinder the film. Of course, this is highly subjective, and everyone’s perfect blend would be slightly different.
‘The Penultimate Cut’ is named because it’s supposed to be one step back from ‘The Final Cut’. Ridley Scott’s final/ultimate version of ‘Blade Runner’ but how it used to look and feel.
