theforce said:I read somewhere on this site that the Reveal of Rens face should be when he reveals himself to Han at the end of the film...it would add more suspense to the film.
That's certainly my own preference, and it's also something that has been suggested once or twice here by others and during discussions over at the likes of originaltrilogy(.)com too. Although TFA was a successful enough return to the franchise in many ways, there are lots of things throughout it that I'd rather remove/alter for my own preference in future - and keeping Kylo's face a mystery for longer is one of them.
While many have no problem whatsover with the existing reveal of Kylo's face mid-way through the movie, I'm definately one of those who'd prefer to keep the reveal of what he LOOKS LIKE as a mystery until the point where Han finally confronts him nearer the end of the movie. I've weighed this up against losing a lot of the dialogue during Rey's 'interrogation' scene, and having to alter the 'Snoke' scenes quite a bit, but I'm very content with how I intend to let things play out for the sake of a later reveal. Now I just need to find the time to actually cut the damn thing in the way that I want, someday.
As has been pointed out, Hal9000's intention for this edit was to mainly alter the movie to just make the 'starkiller' fire later in the movie. But there are other edits such as DigModiFicaTion's which aim to include Kylo keeping his helmet on longer.
