    Honestly, just goes to show the randomness of a small sample size. I have seen TROS 4x in the theater...opening night there were cheers and claps from the minute the Lucasfilm Logo appeared and throughout the movie. The next 2 showings just an average quiet theater experience, and then on the 4th showing the audience was like the first night with lots of clapping. Opening night I expect that sort of thing, but was very surprised on my 4th viewing as the movie had been out for almost a month.

    And fwiw, the one time I saw Endgame (which was a lot of fun and opening week) the theater was silent the entire time and one woman in front of me fell asleep. Go figure.

    I really like the forced perspective of that shot:

    This technique was used quite often in the LOTR films.

    Love to look at the BTS photos. Makes me wish I talented enough to work on something like it.

    These are WONDERFUL!

    Holy cow, these sets are simply amazing!
    I've read some say "they" were just phoning it in with TROS, and I can NOT fathom that perspective when looking at these.
    This is absolute devotion out of love. There was no reason they needed to do a lot of these.

    Like this? Normal movies would just whip this up in VFX, not make a full scale ship and set, and lift it with a crane, and THEN have VFX go back through it and remove all of the crane harness and cabling.

    Even though I think the CGI of TLJ and R1 was better than TROS, I have to say the amount of work is quite astonishing:

    Especially considering they had 812 people doing VFX on this thing and about 100 people working on special effects, inside of that crazy Post schedule of editing and posting on the fly (not always in that order).

    Keeping things straight in terms of where a shot is at ... who's got it, what stage is it at, where is it heading next, when do I get it, etc... and that all of this is happening non-linearly with hundreds to thousands of shots simultaneously because of the edit-on-the-fly method...Jesus!

    I hope someone bought the VFX crews a party at the very least because I guarantee this one saw a ton of people falling asleep at the keyboard, and under their desks.

    There's going to be a lot of production baby's from this film. lol

    -----

    I also REALLY appreciate that this film REALLY took rotoscoping to an absolutely insane level, because the VFX legacy of the originals was the advancement and pushing the boundaries of rotoscoping - it totally went for the fences in the originals, and this one did that again.

    Cheers,
    Jayson

    Maclunkey shame to see the Star Wars' Skywalker saga end on such a sour note. This ST has been a mess. What a missed opportunity to have these last 3 movies be something really unique and special. Rise of Skywalker had some good things about it, but it was just a matter of too little, too late.
