I will never like this trilogy, but at least your making it less painful to watch. While it is a massive improvement on the original, there is a few problems:

-It felt a bit quick in places, mostly where you cut out Leia's parts.
-Luke was too transparent to be convincing (not your fault, you did your best).

Overall, short of a mash-up of all 3 movies, this is the best we're going to get.

I really enjoyed this over the original. This is what I consider my favorite changes:

The whole scene with Kylo and the Emperor (moved to my Definitive ACC of TLJ). (This was awesome and really completed the ACC of TLJ).
Luke is still alive (much better way to end this character)
Wayfinder be gone (Stupid! Glad this is gone)
Lando is introduced much later (This made his introduction so much cooler)
Kylo dies on the Death Star (Much better way to redeem/kill his character)
Rey does not die after her battle with the Emperor

Nice touches:
Light-speed skipping cut
The Emperor's broadcast is heard at the beginning of the movie
There's no force healing
No magic coin to get into Star Destroyers (sooooo dumb)
There's no hidden mechanism in the dagger (glad this is gone)
Rey has not magically learned how to steer skimmers through storms (I enjoyed this entire part of the move from the time they land to the time Rey leaves, including all characters and death of Kylo)
Instead of Leia calling out to Kylo on the Death Star, Luke is
There's no ground invasion (aka horses on a space ship) in the battle of Exagol (This was stupid)

Things that I felt empty on:
Hux goes away (I wanted his character to have closure, but I don't think there was much material to work with here)
Knights of Ren (Small loose end)

Things that I was okay with, but could use some improvements:
The transparent look of Luke :(

Overall this cut along with the DACC of TLJ are really good. I enjoy watching these now.

Very enjoyable, Delivered on its promise and removed, the elements holding it back.
A huge improvement, on the source material. Helping to make the series very watchable again.
Thank you.

SO I really hated this movie originally.
I still don't like it too much, but the edit really helped the pacing and story. The Luke force ghost an Kylo's ship (after it originally had crashed but didn't in your edit) looked a bit whacky, but the best you can do with this kind of already finished product ig. I think you could have also destroyed the "every ship can destroy a planet" part. Other than these minor complains the edit is really almost perfect, thanks for the great work don!

I wasn't expecting much. I mean the originals are such utter rubbish.

I was delightfully surprised. I actually watched TRoS anti-cringe first as I couldn't bare to believe a good cut of TLJ can exist. But TRoS was so well done that I went back and watched TLJ too.

Together these movies do so much better than a "best of what's left." They actually salvage the movies. No need to retcon anything in TRoS because it's not there in the first place. Nothing stupid in TRoS anymore... 'cept the bare minimum Emperor.

I'd love to see version 2+ of these as I still think there's more that can be done to improve.

Top work! I've actually put these in my Star Wars collection to show my daughter, who will now never have to go through the pain of the theatrical releases.
