So an interesting little tidbit about this moment, Rian Johnson told the visual designers to intentionally make the boulders look cartoony while still keeping them looking realistic. This was to make it as clear as possible that the boulders were the obstacle. Rian Johnson employed this idea (making the obstacles as clear as possible) throughout the movie, but the entire Battle of Crait represents this idea the most.
You say that but an entire solar system was destroyed while she was the protagonist.
I like that this shot starts off as her focusing quite hard on moving the rocks out of the way but then she's shocked she's doing it and forgets that she's focusing so hard and makes it look easy.
Makes me excited to see more of the force in her eventually.
a character that is given immense talent and ability without ever working for it. suddenly all of rey's ability reach fruition, no training, no time, just POOF. No padawan phase, BAM knight.
and ALL in a 48 hour period (last jedi timeline)
Do you even know what a Mary Sue is?
a character that is given immense talent and ability without ever working for it.
No. In fact you just described every fantasy/adventure protagonist ever...
dude.... even YODA had to concentrate to lift the X Wing.... Rey lifts more stones (multiple dozens of stones) and acts like "oh wow look at that!")
she suddenly has the lightsaber skill to face down Kylo? (TLJ made it look like Luke had to at least focus on Kylo).... but Rey (who gets owned by luke is on par with Kylo?
she is able to mind control storm troopers with out EVER trying it before?
she is the very definition of Mary Sue
Eh? So they make the rocks look a bit weird because they were worried people would think she was moving something else offscreen?
yeah but what has she actually done that makes you consider her a Mary Sue?
Overpowered? Sure. Mary Sue? Probably not.
Fairly amazing how much smaller that is.
