Some people loved it, some people hated it, but The Last Jedi got everyone talking. No matter what camp you're in, today I'm wondering: what changes would you have made to The Last Jedi if you were in the director's chair?
I absolutely adored the most recent installment in the Star Wars saga, but there's always something you see and think "but what if they did it this way?"
For me (and likely many other people) it was the Canto Bight casino scene that was the weakest link in the movie, a bit of an off beat in a movie where time is meant to be of the essence. If it were up to me, I'd change the context of this scene.
Instead of Rose tasering Finn before he can end up in the escape pod, they both end up in the pod when it's jettisoned, which can then take them to Canto Bight. This way more depth can be put into exploring Finn's desire to run/his eventual overcoming of it, and Rose would have a more interesting arc coming to terms with the fact that one of her heroes is not who she thought he was.
The rest of the casino scene could continue from there, with Rose and Finn trying to find a way to join up with the Resistance again, and running into someone who could help their cause along the way. Have I put too much thought into this? Probably, but it's an interesting exercise.
How about you? What changes would you have made in your ideal version of The Last Jedi, big or small?
