Synopsis:
This cut removes the whole side plot on Canto Bight and focuses on the journey of our main heroes. It further changes the fate of some key characters as well as their motivations and lets them shine in a new light, providing some surprises for viewers of the original film along the way.
Intention:
This movie was a mess! It managed to subvert fan expectations in the worst way and was riddled with plot holes and pointless twists and turns. With it's unnecessary side plots, some ridiculous character moments and cringe-worthy dialogue at points, it quickly buried my faith in the new STAR WARS franchise. But Episode VIII was not all bad so a spark of hope remained... Maybe with some changes here and there, it could be possible to redeem this movie. So I did exactly that and proudly present my first Anti-Cringe-Cut.
Additional Notes:
This edit comes with two audio tracks: Stereo Sound (default track) and 5.1 Surround Sound

- Deleted scene where Poe explains to Finn what happened while he was in a coma
- Deleted scene showing Luke's third lesson to Rey
- Two aerial shots from a documentary of Skellige island (Ahch-To island) that serve as transitions between scenes
- Two Kylo Ren flashback sequences from TFA
- Some classic Star Wars scene transitions here and there
- New background music in some scenes and scene transitions (only Star Wars OST was used)
- There can be no Star Wars without a Wilhelm Scream somewhere in the movie

CHANGED:
- Color grading of the whole movie (greenish/yellow tint removed and more color vibrance)
- The intro crawl text changed slightly to include that Snoke has been training "his apprentice Kylo Ren" and that the rebels are certain that "young Rey will find Luke Skywalker and with his help restore a spark of hope to the fight".
- The first battle against the Dreadnought is much more fluid and intense now and not broken up by silly jokes
- Moved the scene where Leia tells C3PO to "whipe that nervous expression off his face" to right after the Dreadnought cannons move to point at the rebel cruiser making it a better fit
- Although General Hux is still not the most intimidating bad guy, at least now he is spared the humiliation by his superiors in front of his fellow officers, restoring some of his dignity and the appearance of him being a respected General.
- The first time we see Luke and Rey, he is already holding the light saber in his hands, showing us that at least some time has gone by since the ending of TFA.
- Instead of throwing away the light saber, Luke gives it back to Rey and tells her that he's sorry before walking off, making her confused expression right after, more believable.
- Leia dies in the second assault of the First Order
- Luke has a vision of Leia floating in space after he reconnects with the force
- Teleportation of matter like water via force call is not possible anymore (shown when Kylo wipes his face to reveal that water from Ahch- To island was transported to him). Now it looks like he's wiping away some sweat after his intense conversation with Rey.
- Luke now seems more skilled in the fight with Rey. He doesn't fall down, after she hits him on the head the first time but immediately turns around to stop her second strike at which point he has a force vision of Rey tempted by the dark side and hears Master Yoda's warning voice telling him not to attack her. This results in him just dodging her hits and staying on the defensive. The one time he falls down now, he breaks his fall with the force, showing us that he could have easily beaten her if he wanted to. This changed scene now also implies that if he had attacked her, he would have probably driven her away even further, thus serving as a good callback later when she refuses to join Kylo.
- The final flashback featuring Luke and Kylo has been defused to the point where Luke acts not completely out of character anymore. The following lines have been removed: "He would bring destruction, pain, death, and the end of everything I love because of what he will become. And for the briefest moment of pure instinct, I thought I could stop it. It passed like a fleeting shadow. And I was left with shame and with consequence."
Instead after he says "Snoke had already turned his heart..." we see flashes of Kylo (from Rey's lightsaber-vision in TFA) already wearing his mask, walking towards us and killing someone with his red lightsaber. We return to a shocked Luke who continues with "...and the last thing I saw were the eyes of a frightened young boy who's master had failed him". This changes the meaning of the whole scene. Luke failed Kylo because he allowed Snoke to turn his apprentice while he was under his care and not because he tried to kill him in his sleep. Also Luke does not turn on his light saber except to block Kylo's strike after he consequently attacks Luke.
- When Poe asks Admiral Holdo, if she has a plan and notices that she is fueling up the transport ships, it now seems like she gives in an tells him what the mission is. When they leave her alone on the cruiser and Poe leaves with the transport ships, it looks like they are working together.
- To showcase that there is a montage with Commander D'Acy explaining their escape plan to the rebel base on Crait to Poe (and the audience).
- The reveal that Rose is Paige's sister comes much later in the last act on Crait when she touches the second half of the medallion as she is flying towards the large cannon, creating a better connection/contrast to the beginning of the movie. Her sister died in battle, she survives it.
- The Millennium Falcon enters the battle on Crait gracefully and with style. The first thing we see is it's shadow and not an exaggerated triple kill shot
- When Poe gives up on attacking the big laser cannon on Crait and tells Finn to pull back, it now looks like he is following his order
Luke makes his last stand with a green lightsaber instead of the blue one making the reveal, that he is a force projection, more surprising
- Rey does not appear to be jealous of Rose anymore. Instead she seems to be happy for Finn.
- We get another good look at the broken lightsaber before the Millennium Falcon enters hyperspace for the last time. The kyber crystal of the saber starts glowing faintly...
- There is a cut to black instead of a fade to white before the last scene starts
- The movie ends with Luke pulling himself up and looking out at the sunset (small black dot in front of the sun removed), coming full circle. He looked at it as an infant in "Revenge of the Sith", as a young man in "A New Hope" and finally as an old Jedi Master. Hope fills his eyes. He is alive after all...

I am absolutely anti the Disney Trilogy and TLJ was the worst one in my opinion. We’re in an age of deconstructing our heroes, but this was ridiculous. Now, with that being said of my views.....

Wow! There was a lot of time and effort and thought put into this edit. Without having watched the movie since opening night in theaters, I went into this completely fresh. Outside of 1 or 2 minor nitpicks, this was a HUGE improvement over the original cut. Canto Bight plot is not missed, but I missed seeing Finn. Here, with his reduced screen time, it does drive home what the DT ended up doing with him as having him a side character in the background.

Without all of the excess fat, the 2 major plot lines are more focused and surprisingly, Poe became likable for me since the mutiny plot is gone. I love that Luke lives and I love that ending leading into the next movie. The ending didn’t quite feel “Star Wars-y” as the scene felt like a mid-credits scene, but overall the DT doesn’t feel “Star Wars-y” either in general.

2 minor nitpicks

1. The emotional scene of Luke in front of his jedi robe in the trunk could’ve been used perfectly as him sensing Leia’s demise and his conflict with returning to action.

2. Since the narrative was altered to have more scenes take place at once on Acho-To (I think I spelled it right), it felt like it had been edited it didn’t quite have a natural flow. This isn’t a slight against Don, it just has to do with the material he had to work with.

Oh yeah! That one additional shot of the island from overhead was clearly slowed down and that bothered me surprisingly, but you work with what you have.

Overall, this was an excellent edit and Don didn’t try to reinvent the wheel, he fixed it for a much smoother ride through a bumpy road for Star Wars fans.

Applause all around for you, sir!

[Disclaimer: this review no longer reflects my tastes whatsoever]

A solid edit of TLJ that makes it a lot less unlikable to me.

I enjoyed the narrative changes (mainly regarding Luke), but did feel that some things were cut inconsistently, which detracted from the rest of the narrative. Also unfortunate that this edit isn't able to be watched in succession with The Rise of Skywalker. I also felt that some of the editing of what was deemed "cringe" dialogue screwed with the audio at some points, and messed with the pacing as conversations appeared to end or escalate too quickly.

If you're not a fan of TLJ for the reasons outlined in this edit, you'll probably be more satisfied with it this way. But, I don't think this will become my "definitive" way to watch the film, although it is very close to how I would imagine it.

I hated The Last Jedi. The whole thing was a mess. I was hoping for a fanedit that fixed it and this is it. I loved all the narrative choices - the movie is improved tenfold. It does get a little clunky during the final battle, but the editor did a good job with what he had. The only additional thing I was hoping for was a removal of Hologram Luke, but you can't have it all.

I was happy to see it had a 5.1 audio track, but there are a lot of issues with it. There are about a half dozen spots where the dialogue randomly jumps into the front left and rear left channels for no apparent reason. It's too bad, because it really takes you out of the experience.

That said, it's not a fatal flaw this easily replaces the original for me. Recommended for anyone who was disappointed with the original.

Thanks for the kind words adabisi!
If I find the time, I'll take another look at the 5.1 track.

Let me start by saying, for me, any edit of TLJ must exclude Canto Bight. So this edit works for me, but obviously will not work for anyone who wants the Canto Bight sideplot. Overall this is a good edit and it comes close to my imagined perfect cut. But there are a few things I had trouble with and I'll list them below.

- The lightsaber exchange just didn’t work for me. I think I’d be happier with the toss.

- The cut between Luke with the fish and the beacon didn’t work for me.

- I don’t like the half truth Luke tells Rey in the temple by the reflecting pool. I’d rather the whole story be omitted with just Luke saying it was too late to save Ben.

- I’m not sure of the reason for the clip of the future Rey/Kylo interaction during the Rey/Luke fight. If you can explain why that's there I'd appreciate it. But it felt odd and unnecessary to me.

- The sound was off at the end of the Luke/Kylo standoff. I had to convert the file using Handbrake to be able to play on my AppleTV. So if this sound sync issue is a result of that, let me know and I'll amend my rating.

- The only big thing I miss is the final Luke/Leia scene.

- Of course, Leia dying on camera and Luke surviving could have serious continuity issues. This is a narrative issue, in my opinion, and is what really makes it hard for me to get with this edit.

Overall, the edit works and shows that there’s a good movie in there. Unfortunately, I feel like too much continuity is lost with the overall trilogy (I'm assuming). It’s not far off from my perfect edit, but it has some deal breakers for me. Between this and the Fallen Knight edit, I think I may be able to piece together my ideal version. I didn't hate TLJ and so far I've seen some edits that make it enjoyable. It's still not a great movie, but if you can live with the continuity issues, this is a vast improvement over the theatrical.

I walked out of my first viewing of The Last Jedi, which was an early preview showing, absolutely shell shocked. What just happened? What was that? I went back for showings with my wife and friends in the theater, and dutifully purchased the blu ray upon release, but the only time I've watched my copy was in preparation for The Rise of Skywalker.

However, this edit did the impossible: it gave me a way to enjoy this film. Honestly, this is not hyperbole. This is now my go-to way to revisit the film and favorite fan edit of the material. I cannot recommend this highly enough! Thank you Don!

Blown away by this. I am not the biggest hater of The Last Jedi (I love its themes of internal conflict and how the Jedi spun the Force as their own tool), but the lows of the film have always been incredibly low (Leia Poppins and the Casino Planet). The Anti-Cringe Cut fixes almost all of my qualms about the film, cutting out the pointless subplots and awkward jokes. As with any fan edit there are a few noticeable moments where clips jump or continuity of a scene is off, but you take those with a grain of (red) salt. Not kidding when I say, this would make TLJ jump from bottom 3 to top 3 in my Star Wars rankings; really impressed by the work Dom did here.

DomKamillo managed to polish a turd. What was once an unpalatable experience now feels like a proper Star Wars narrative. The edit lives up to its name, and even had some unexpected touching moments. Bravo!
