Robservations on everything…

 

A neat detail in Star Wars: The Last Jedi [Coded Spoiler]

We saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi for a second time a while back, mainly because a large group of friends was going and we had most of the theater to ourselves, so it was sort of like a private screening. During my re-watching, I spotted a number of things that I’d missed the first time, but one in particular stood out…

Note: The remainder of this post is hidden behind a spoiler-hiding plug-in, as the subject being discussed is a major—really major—plot spoiler. This should keep it disguised both here on the site, and in the RSS feed. However, commenters may not disguise their comments, which means you may not want to scroll down at all if you haven’t seen the movie yet.

If you don’t want a major plot element revealed, don’t expand the hidden spoiler!

If you comment here, you can hide any revealing details, too—just surround the text with the spoiler-hiding tags, like this:

[spoiler]Secrets to the universe are listed here.[/spoiler]

Anything within the tags (you can use multiple per comment) will be hidden behind a click-to-view banner.

  1. I did notice that, that is one of those things that show a remarkable attention to detail in the movie. Did you notice the dice were in old (Episode IV) Millennium Falcon cockpit shots all along?

    Also, at first I wondered why

    when Kylo lunged at Luke, in the very next scene they were something like 12-15 feet apart. It made for good cinema (widescreen) but also a clue that there was something unusual going on.

    1. Note: If you’re reading this now, things have changed as I stopped using the ROT13 plug-in (it was flooding a database table with millions of entries). The post (including how-to-hide spoiler instructions) and comments have been updated for the new method.

      1. It didn’t work at first, as I provided incorrect instructions. I edited the comment (and the instructions), so now it works.

    1. Good catch—turns out you can’t “double tap” on an iPhone. I changed the setting to “single click,” and now, in testing on my iPad, it seems to be working. Please let me know if it works for you.

        1. Small aside: kinda weird that emoji get turned into question marks. Ideally they’d come thru OK; if that’s for some reason less than feasible… maybe some other glyph. Question marks can look kinda confusing…

          BTW what a nice little feature, that

          rot13 can be embedded within a post like this in the middle of

          otherwise normal text :)
