Rian Johnson on what movies influenced "The Last Jedi"

Taken from latest issue of Empire:
”Twelve O’Clock High’ was a big touchstone, for the feel and look of the aerial combat as well as the dynamic between the pilots, ‘Three Outlaw Samurai‘ for the feel of the sword-fighting, and the general sense of pulpy fun. And ‘To Catch A Thief‘ was a great film to rewatch, for the romantic scale and grandeur.”
“I found myself constantly wanting to push modern idioms into the dialogue, and sometimes that can work, but you have to be very careful. If you go too far you can break that ‘Star Wars’ spell. The other challenge is the tech talk, which has to be simultaneously complex enough to sound real and conceptually simple enough to follow. The original films were brilliant at that.”
