    Ben/Kylo holds up a finger to shush Hux just like Han held up a finger to shush 3PO in TESB.

    I just realized one today when I was walking around doing last minute dinner supplies shopping.

    D-O is a mirror character of DJ.
    Firstly...the names. Secondly, they both stutter, and seem to be one thing at first sight, but are in fact another.
    And while DJ is the key breaker and believes in nothing, though he could, D-O is the key holder who chooses to "believe" in the cause, though he shouldn't be able to.
    "Never underestimate a droid."

    Cheers,
    Jayson

    I've got a moment of 'visual poetry' from within TRoS itself:
    Literal possession of strength and power (Palpatine and the Sith) versus Symbolic/Metaphorical possession of strength and power (Rey and the Jedi)

    There's also a parallel in Anakin and Ben women they love that are either dying or dead (Shmi and Rey, respectively).

    The prequel and sequels function as nice bookends to the OT featuring a Skywalkers and Palpatine’s joining the other and changing their names.

    Leia not becoming 1 with the Force until Ben becomes 1 with the Force. So many people misinterpret that this was poetry right in the film. A little artistic license for dramatic effect that I loved.

    Anakin's doom beginning with the death of his mother.

    Ben being redeemed by his mother's death.

    There is a scenes of Ben Solo in TROS shooting at some guard (or one of the KOR?) in Exogol. He shoots without looking to his target like Han did in TFA. I didn't find the the pic...

    Rey telling Poe and Finn to take out the cameras on Ren's ship when looking for a prisoner... mirroring Han, Chewie and Luke taking out the cameras on the detention block when looking for a certain "prisoner". :)

    I don't know if this counts, but at the end, before the "looking into the twin sunset" shot, the double suns of Tatooine overlap slightly to form a distinct BB-8 shape on the horizon :)

    Oh, it was definitely intentional! :) Since the twin suns are fake they had to make the choice to line the suns up that way. I guess it was a in-studio homage to BB-8 who was a huge reason TFA did as well as it did (not that TFA wouldn't've done well anyway, but still).

    More power to BB-8 :)

    There's a scene where Kylo Ren holds up his finger just like Han did in ESB with the same manner, wish I can find the screen grab of it in ROS.

    When Ben faces the KoR

    Ben fights like Anakin. Similar lightsaber spin and moves. In fact people were cheering all three times I seen the movie when he fought them. And someone yelled out he looks like Anakin.

    But Ben still has that signature bad a.s.s Kylo stabbing through the heart move
