TLJ: Favourite Scenes

Post by LesCousinsDangereux on Sat 16 Dec 2017, 3:11 pm

This is for those of us -if any?- that would like to discuss our favourite scenes from TLJ. I know some people did not like the movie much/at all, and others have problems with some aspects of it. This thread is to discuss our favourite scenes, ie from the things we liked, what we liked most. I think some may have not found anything at all to like – which if course is perfectly fine, everyone has their own opinion and feelings – but that does not need to be mentioned here. This is meant to be a positive thread. (And I actually thought there was a separate thread to discuss what people disliked, but I cannot see it now?)

So as for favourite scenes, I know we have too many to chose from which makes it a difficult choice! Nice problem to have! Smile So I think it would be an interesting task to choose one as favourite (else we would all list all the Reylo scenes, and that’s too easy Smile

So for those that are interested to discuss this, what is your favourite scene, and why?

Re: TLJ: Favourite Scenes

Post by LesCousinsDangereux on Sat 16 Dec 2017, 3:19 pm

Before I go into favourite scenes, I should mention I have seen the movie twice, and also watched some clips on reddit before they were removed. I can’t wait for the DVD to be available so I can re-watch endlessly all the good parts Smile

My favourites scenes include what others have mentioned already in other threads, ie the Force-skyping scenes (especially the hand touching one), the throne room fight against the PG were Kylo and Rey work so well together as a team, and the elevator scene of course. And the whole Throne Room scene before Snoke is cut in half.

My personal top favourite is the Throne Room scene (Rey/Kylo/Snoke) up to just before the PG fight starts. The whole scene is quite long and intercut with the resistance and Finn/Rose scenes (unfortunately) so if I had to choose a favourite scene that is only a few seconds long, the final part of this scene –pre PG- would be it (else my favourite would be the whole of the Throne Room scene, having removed the in-between resistance, & Finn/Rose parts).

This scene is very powerful, game changing and perfectly executed in every respect; so much so, that I personally consider it is the highlight of TLJ and the whole ST. Snoke says Rey needs to be killed and tells Kylo to do so. But Kylo has not taken kindly at all to Snoke’s revelation that he manipulated the two of them via the bond and that he [Snoke] knew Kylo’s was weak and that Rey is not wise and would take the bait. You can see from Kylo’s expression that this is not something he will just accept and that this is the moment he finally turns on his master. (As throughout the movie, AD is amazing here). But –unusual for Kylo – he remains calm and focused because he is not dumb and he knows he needs a plan other than just lashing out at Snoke. So he bides his time.

Then Snoke tells him to fulfil his destiny, and mocks Rey that he cannot be betrayed as he can read Kylo’s mind and gives us a live commentary that he feels Kylo’s resolve to turn on the lightsaber and kill his true enemy …

The framing, blocking, lighting, music and of course actor performances are all perfect! When Snoke speaks what will turn out to be his last words, we hear the sound of a lightsaber switching on and Snoke’s face is suddenly bathed in a blue glow. Rey falls to the ground as [dead] Snoke’s hold is released and she turns to look towards the throne to see Snoke skewered like a kebab. Then Kylo closes his fist and the lightsaber travels towards us horizontaly having cut Snoke in half. Rey’s hand reaches up to grab it, as Snoke’s upper half topples over. Rey scrambles to her feet looking upward (to Kylo) as she does so. Then we cut to Kylo’s face as he looks at Rey. Then cut to Rey as she looks at Kylo with her lightsaber held in both hands and raised in preparation. Then back to Kylo as he looks at Rey and the room around them and then his face is illuminated by a red glow as he turns on his lightsaber.

No words are exchanged. None are needed. The actor’s expres​sion(especially Adam Driver’s) says everything we need to know; and more.

It is A-MA-ZING. And for me, the highlight and highpoint of this film (and not Luke vs Kylo at the very end) as this is a major turning point for both characters and the ST trilogy as a whole. It cannot be undone and it will have major repercussions for the story going forward.

My only quibble with this scene, is that when Snoke says “he turns his lightsaber” while Kylo unbeknownst to him is multi-tasking, we see a shot of the blue lightsaber next to the throne turning, and we did not need that. It would be better if we –like Snoke- were unaware, so we have the element of surprise (whereas now it is telegraphed to the audience what will happen). But even with this minor issue, this is my favourite scene in TLJ, my favourite in the ST so far, and my favourite StarWars scene overall. (As I liked the OT, but not as much as TFA/TLJ, and was not as invested in any of the characters).

So for me personally, the major/most important events in each film, like the answer to the question "what is the movie about, in one sentence’" would be:

Ep7- TFA: Kylo kills Han.

Ep8 -TLJ: Kylo is told to kill Rey, but kills Snoke instead.

Ep9 - ? : Kylo and Rey kiss.

That is the [shortest possible] summary of the ST : )

-Luke staring at the sunset on Ahch-To, call back to him on Tatooine in ANH
-the subtle humor in Rey's, Luke's, and Kylo's voices
-The caretakers being upset with Rey
-the porgs nesting in the falcon lol
-Maz fighting the union members hahaha (wish maz was in it more )
-BDT's stutter was great
- Kylo's hair during the fight
-The fight scene against the Praetorian Guards
-kylo & Rey eye contact
- The cinematography (especially Ahch-To)
-The audio intensity (Rey facing the mirror, her snapping, her voiceover)
-the Ahch-To music
- Domnhall Gleeson's performance
- Finn trying to escape and getting caught by Rose
-Rey & Kylo's understanding when they touch fingers...2 lonely, isolated people skin to skin bonding is incredibly important (even without the sexual symbolism)

I've only seen it once, I'll probably have more to add later on lol

Kylo sliding into view during the first skype scene. I'm like, I want to know why. Whose idea it was. Just what the heck in general. I couldn't help but lmao.

The other one is Luke throwing the lightsaber over his shoulder and stomping away. Imagine all the people with rampant Baby Girl headcanons sitting on the edge of their seats in anticipation for this scene and this happens. Hilarious.

On a more serious note, Holdo crashing into the Supremacy was visually stunning, powerful and instantly memorable. Everyone in audience was left awestruck by it during my viewing.

I love a lot of scenes but the one where Luke reunites with Leia and winks at R2D2 as he goes out to face the FO is my favourite by far.... kept thinking how this is the last time we're seeing Luke and Leia together and shed tears Sad

1) Rey feeling the Force -- it reminded me of this scene from Adaptation, another super meta movie that I absolutely love.

2) The mirror scene. It may be confusing at first, but it's a beautiful way to demonstrate Rey facing her true self.

3) The hand scene. I love it. To me, it's almost pornographic in a way. The close up of their fingers, skin on skin, reminds me so much of two bodies moving together. And of course, there's this whole "Adam and Even eating the forbidden fruit" vibe going on, which is just delicious.

4) Power Couple fighting the guards. Amazing, and I love how it's a contrast of their fight in TFA. In TFA, the background was blue, it was snowing and they were fighting against each other. Now, the background is red, fire is falling from the sky and they're a team.

5) Rey telling Kylo to sleep on the couch by end. Ugh, my heart. It's so real and relatable, and he knows he f****d up.

6) Kylo and Rey running after each other in one of their first Force bond sessions and looking like a couple from a period piece running in a forest and laughing.

7) Kylo Force pushing Hux. I laughed so hard.

His wink is at C3PO too, which I thought was adorable.

I'm going to list the weird WTF moments I loved:

- Kylo sliding out a la Tom Cruise in Risky Business. Whose idea was it??
- Luke milking the chicken monster's grotesque... appendages, and guzzling down milk straight after
- Rey clicking her fingers in the Endless Rey scene. I thought I was watching a Twin Peaks episode for a second.

All Reylo scenes were fantastic:

#Handsex

#PowahDuo

#P&P

#Heartbreak

#Beefcake

#RainDrop

#Elevator

Did I forget anything?

Other favorite scenes:

Rey feels the Force  lol!

"Shoot that piece of junk out of the sky!" (most useful line ever, I'm gonna apply it a lot)

"More! More!"

Kylo faces Luke. He's so pretty. Deranged, sweaty Kylo is always my favorite.

"take that ridiculous thing off" Snoke tells it like it is. RIP. It's like losing Hef twice. Sad Sad Sad

Holdo cruiser's lightspeed jump. A thing of beauty.

I LOL'd during the confrontation between Luke and Ben where Ben's all "I'LL DESTROY HER!!!!" and Luke's response is "No, you won't." Which besides the fact that Luke realizes Ben's entire rage fest is because of her, she beat both of their asses.

Also, the entire Battle of Crait was an ugly family get together where Ben shows up pissed because he just got dumped and his girlfriend's cut him off and made the choice instead to take sides with his mother in the dispute he has with her. Except that he shows up on the lawn drunk, yelling, and spoiling for fight (but just embarrassing himself) when his uncle comes out and makes him look even more like a jacka** while mom and ex-girlfriend bail to go someplace more quiet. Meanwhile, you have these armies on both sides standing there completely terrified and mortified at what they're having to witness.

I'll make a full list soon but for now I'll just say that I genuinely loved Luke vs. Ben, from Luke's promise to Leia to Luke also fulfilling Rose's words with Kylo. By giving his life to stall his nephew he simultaneosly protected what he loved in his sister and the remaining Resistance but also Ben by stopping him from doing something else he would regret, something that would have destroyed all hope. It was an intervention of sorts. Kylo was in such a fit of rage that no softer approach would have made a difference. He was not there to save his soul, but he did prevent further fracturing in his own way. Stopping Kylo gave everybody another chance, Ben included.
