The Last Jedi - DVD / BluRay releases

Postby SAVORY100 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 2:15 pm

Just thought it would be a nice idea to start a thread on the DVD BluRay releases that came out a week or so ago.

I know some folk don't like the film as much as others and that some loved the film, can't be arsed with listening to all that prattling on again... so please stick to the Extras on teh releases and if you like, the different jacket/packages that have been released...

I'll kick it off by saying I got my copy from HMV; I opted for the 4k double disc with the extras disc too. Nicely packaged with a slip case. Not cheap, but decided to future proof as my TV will probably finally die in a the 12 months anyway.

EXTRAS

I loved them!
A couple of deleted scenes that I think they absolutely made the right decision to cut (the alternate start jumps out as the correct decision being made), but a few of them I would really like to have seen edited in; the Luke takes a moment scene was fantastic and I think should've been in it, although probably not cutting back to Leia.. who knows.

I really rated the Director and the Jedi, it really brought to life how Rian had developed the film, the characters and why he made the decisions he did. It backed up a lot of what he has delivered with reasoning and made a number of scenes even more powerful.

Showdown on Crait and One night with Andy Serkis were the other two standouts to me; that's not to suggest the rest is filler, it really is not, but these two I have now watched 3 or 4 times and they are still brilliant.

Overall I'm pleased and impressed with the whole package

Yeah, though the extras were usual top form. Id rate The Director and the Jedi just below The Beginning and Empire of Dreams.

I cant believe the exploding wall was a real set. Such a fantastic shot. This really highlights some of the amazing cinematography, a lot of which I didn't realise was on set, and thought it was CGI plates.

I don't like Canto Bight, but am confused as to why they didn't show off the set and creatures more.

Loved this Blu-Ray, Picture Quality is amazing.

Feel like im living in some fantasy Star Wars renaissance paradise.........

Watched most the extras now and without being over critical, I fundamentally desagree with most of the reasons Rian Johnson gives for major plot twists and caractor development. Does not help that I find him really annoying, but thats my problem. I get the impression nothing was really thought out well at all and knowone ever questioned Rian Johnson about anything. Some of the best bits they cut out IMO! I am still looking forward to watching it again, it's Star Wars at the end of the day. :)

I was tempted by that myself, but got suckered into buying it quick and easy in HMV instead of ordering it!
