    I was paraphrasing the guy doing it. In an interview he did - I think it was with Geeks and Gamers, that was the exact turn of phrase he used.

    Recently watched TLJ for a second time. Definitely not aging like a fine wine and is aging worse than TFA. But the lightspeed kamikaze attack on Snoke's ship remains priceless and the best scene in the film.

    So you mean it's aging like milk?

    I saw it once at the cinema at midnight then a 2nd time on blu-ray. I definitely appreciated it more the 2nd time, after the hubbub and things settled down and seeing some articles. I will watch it again for sure though as well.
    I have no gripes with Luke's portrayal or anything like that. I think some of the execution of ideas just may not have been that great.

    As I said under the Solo thread; it's aging like a limburger but milk will do.

    I'm a big advocate of fan edits in general. The gold standard has to be the Star Wars Revisisted project - I prefer the adywan versions of ANH and ESB over the current Lucasfilm approved cuts.

    The Force theme was originally Luke's theme, but ended up so overused that it became the theme for the force. It's probably my favourite piece out of the lot, but I'll be damned if they haven't run it into the ground.

    Originally there was the Emperor's theme but after it was used as Darth Maul's/Darth Sidious' theme in TPM it became the theme of the dark side of the force from that point onwards.
    On one hand it would help if John William's could be more creative but on the other hand taking risks could blow up in John's face if the new theme is substandard.
