I've watched afew of those interviews with Hamil and his concerns regarding Luke's role. I understand for the ending Luke needed to be on the island but i think that's one of the reasons I didn't enjoy it. I always felt Luke would have took the fight to the First Order in physical presence to inspire those around him. That's the Luke I always knew. I think I would have enjoyed it more if Luke Skywalker had gone out on his shield like the true warrior he always was.

1) Copy the link.

2) Cut the bit before the equals sign and any gubbins after the code, leaving you with "EIY-PsHrj9A"

3) Press the Youtube button above this text box to give you.....

4) Buck the EIY-PsHRj9A in the middle of double brackets and hey presto.

One other small point is that I've seen some complaining about the way the CG Yoda looked but if you look at this I think they did their best to recapture the ESB one 8)

Rebelforce Radio made a good point on Yoda

No-one has successfully recreated Yoda or Jabba since ROTJ.

A really good point and a testament to those original puppet makers.

Scott I thought your summing up was really good, and in answer to Grants question (and Gus’s post), I would find many flaws with the originals if I watched them fresh today but as that is impossible nostalgia wins out.

I love ESB but Dagobah drags and ROTJ is full
of holes. 3PO on Endor always bugged me, what was the point of everyone else’s camo gear?

Doesn’t mean I can’t criticise things now.

Looking forward to a second Last Jedi viewing but suspect I’ll still share Scott’s views. Despite my misgivings, Star Wars transcends normal film critiques and the films are more than the sum of their parts.

I thought Blade Runner was film of the year but I’m not rushing out to spend tons of cash on collectibles.

A good bit for f making of information is that Nick Maley who helped Stuart Freeborn make the original Yoda made this one. They even tracked down the woman who originally painted Yoda eyes for this model.

A friend of mine's Grand father was Stuart Freeborn and she remembered seeing bits and pieces of Yoda and Chewbacca in his shed up until he passed away (as well as being on set whilst they were shooting Empire as a child). I haven't spoken to her in years as she went to live in NZ but I wonder if they managed to get hold of anything to help with this latest version in TLJ.

Just had my second viewing. Absolutely loved it. All the annoying things were still there but much more to the background of a cracking action film

I agree! I think this is one of the main reasons why some of us are disappointed by it. Instead we get an inbalanced old Jedi Master, not the Luke we used to know. It is part of letting elements of the OT behind us. Nothing wrong with it, but why reinstall Han, Luke and Leia in the first place? Guess they were afraid of the prequel effect or something like that. And of course trying to bind old and new fans of the franchise...
