There was a fine thread of the same title in relation to The Phantom Menace, but found it I have not, nor who started it remember it I do not. But here are the things I took note of while watching The Force Awakens. Yes, 14 months late but still on my mind nevertheless as I've rewatched TFA a few more times recently.
-Poe Dameron as he was led out of the troop carrier in captivity aboard the Star Destroyer looked around him in wide-eyed wonder. He was aboard the enemy ship and was seeing it for the first time from the inside. No doubt he was getting a lay of the land in surprise, and/or wondering how his now inside witness could benefit him in escape and/or future battles.
-I love the scene where Kylo is talking with Snoke without his helmet on, and General Hux walks in unexpectedly. You can see how awkward Ren suddenly becomes, how regretful he is that Hux can now see him without his intimidating helmet covering his face. IMO Hux is both fearful of Ren and not fearful. He knows that Snoke needs him and will not allow Ren to kill him, but at the same time there is that out of control temper of Ren's that he is wary of, which could prove fatal before Snoke's intervention. And in that scene Hux saw him without his mask, saw him for the flesh and blood human that he really was, getting a glimpse of the man behinmd the curtain, so to speak. And indeed, Ren was quite unhappy about that. However, Hux barely gave him a nod of consideration, and if so only for a split second. It was as if Hux already knew who he was under the helmet, as if he wasn't surprised at all, and was humoring Ren all along for his attempts to appear the mysterious and terrifying bigshot that Ren portrayed himself as. Hux knew the truth behind the persona, and to Ren's regrets, that gave him a leg up on the so called Master of the Knights of Ren.
-One of my very favorite but brief scenes of the movie was Rey's change of countenance in literally the blink of an eye. Surely I am not the only one who has noticed this. If not, then watch the scene at the end when she faces Luke for the apparent first time (I believe he had trained her as a child but that's for another discussion). She stretches her hand forward to hand him his own long lost lightsaber and on her face you can see worry and uncertainty in her expression. Then she blinks her eyes and her face changes, to confidence and determination. If you know what I'm talking about then you know...
But if you didn't notice then watch that specific scene again. Doubt and hesitation, then in the blink of an eye, right when she blinks her eyes, she is now more determined than ever.
I love that scene, and what it conveys.
