I downloaded TFK the other day. Based on the changes I've read, sounds like a huge improvement, but since Luke is still a grumpy old bitch, it can never truly be fixed. Rose is just another Resistance fighter, not featured at all. Fynn role significantly downgraded. Holdo becomes friend of Leia, not an Admiral. No running out of gas. No Phasma or DJ. No Casino or parking tickets. No SWJ agendas.
This cut just makes it barely tolerable, and boils it down to a focused Luke/Rey/Kylo/Snoke story, bookended by a Resistance escape. Curious how it plays onscreen.
1) Cut the awful Poe jokes at the beginning
2) Cut Finn/Rose/DJ/Phasma side arc altogether, including Maz
3) Cut the "Low on Fuel" arc completely
4) Cut Leia being blown into space
5) Cut Ach-To alien nuns scene
6) Cut Luke/Rey joke about “reaching out” and slapping on the hand
7) Cut Finn joking about how the first order “hates that ship” in the Crait battle
8) Cut Holdo/Leia awkward joking about “may the force be with you”
9) Cut Finn trying to crash into the battering ram and Rose saving him.
10) Cut broom boy ending
11) Luke drops the lightsaber, instead of tossing it
12) Added the deleted beach attack scene on Ach-To
13) Added custom end “close out” circle to fit the end of the movie
