I really wasn’t expecting to see Ford as Han again and it was a really beautiful scene. At first I thought it was gonna be Luke who talks to Ben.
I also might be the only one who recognized John Williams. The audience was dead - cons of seeing a screen too early or too late I guess.
Ford and Driver were so fucking good in that scene. I think it's the best scene of the film. They convey so much emotion with so little. The dramatic scenery helps of course but dammit. Ford is such a pro, his performance in 2049 is also some of his best work. I just love Driver in these three films. He has such a screen presence and it seems that he has such knowledge of what is going on and of his character. I loved how he turned more into Han Solo in the third act of the film, after his redemption. that little shrug after receiving the lightsaber from Rey, that's just pure Han. There might be a lot to criticize in these films but Ford and Driver don't belong in any of that.
yeah, this a thousand times, Driver carries everything and that whole fight scene and his turn are utter perfection the more I think about it, easily the best thing about this film
Something about it is just so solid that Im assuming it has probably been the one constant between most versions of the script or perhaps just the way it connects to the best scenes Revenge, Empire, Return and Awakens that makes it feel like the whole saga has been building up to this (more than the ending itself really)
