Of course I know what you mean. And really you're not wrong.

The amount of people including Star Wars podcasts that totally missed the broomstick lad using the force to pull the broom to him is astounding.

I didn’t catch it on my first viewing but totally did and gasped on the second.

I'm reading and hearing a lot of people who didn't even notice that she had the torn-apart light saber on the Falcon, and that was far more obvious than the books in the drawer.

I didn’t notice that either. It’s the exact moment the Radduss hits Snokes ship and breaks it up.
Just thought that caused the explosion
I thought she had two different lightsabers at the end and didn’t catch that it was the Same one

All of those things are really obvious. What movie were you guys watching?

Exactly my thought. And you've seen it how many times...?

Wait a minute. Just one God damn minute. Why is there fan-fiction in my Star Wars? This thing with Tarkin picking up a random twink (not even random, it's TK 421!) is so weird. And it just keeps going!

For anyone thinking of getting the Art of the Last Jedi book. Be aware. This is much much more a Making the Last Jedi book than an art of book. Sure the art is in there but pretty much the entire majority of the text is on the day to day making of the film. I LOVE Rinzlers making of Star Wars books. I’d call them essentials for any serious fans collections. This book would and should sit happily among them although not as detailed as them. I have to go back and read the TFA art of book to see if it’s done the same way, but I don’t think it is. There’s footnotes in here about the art included but the main body of the text is all about the mechanics of making the film. It’s thrown me a little bit and I now have a feeling we’re never gonna see the making of books for this new trilogy. At least for a long time. But let’s see. Wait for it to pop up on amazon or eBay cheaper. I got mine for £24 new from amazon. But a worthy addition to your collection for sure.
