    In order of appearance:
    1. the shot of Finn lowering his gun, zoom in on him, i love the way his helmeted head kinda turns down to the ground in sorrow. the "frown" on his stormtrooper helmet adds to the feeling of the scene.
    2. Kylo turns to stare at FN 2187
    3. Rey sliding down the sand dune
    4. Rey fixing bb8's antenna
    5. Finn's expression when he takes out the turret, the surprised look on his face before he shouts in excitement
    6. oops, this is earlier on but when Rey looks at the elderly lady who is cleaning the gear she scavenged. it's Rey realizing shes headed for that same life.
    7. Rey says "oh no" when flying the falcon through the star destroyer, as she realizes the stretch ahead is too straight and will lead to their targeted death if she doesnt figure something out, then she shifts left through an opening quickly
    8. Finn realizing he cant go to the resistance base as they will all discover hes a phony
    9. Rey's face when she realizes Finn decided to come back for her. Its her finally accepting her destiny and realizing the family she longs for is right here.
    10. i love everything

    I always took her saying that as being because the TIE had locked onto them. Innate Force ability. I wonder if that was the moment the Force awakened? Hmm.

    Anyway, nice list. Agree with them all.

    2. Shush! (Rey to BB8)

    6. Rey turning the tables on Kylo and announcing what he is afraid of, during the interrogation scene.
    7. Han to chewie "Oh you are cold?!"
    8. Chewie going berserk and mowing down the troopers.

    My favorite little moment was Rey eating her dinner and wearing the X wing helmet.

    1. Max von Sydow's cameo. Such a great actor.
    2. The Rey "life on Jakku" montage.
    3. Finn saying "stay calm" over and over again, to himself.
    4. Chewie's freak out.
    5. Hux's speech.
    6. Rey's facial expressions, in general.
    7. Rey turning the tables on Kylo, and how she kind of sits up. Almost like she's physically fighting back against him as well.
    8. Daniel Craig's cameo.
    9. Kylo Force pulling the FO officer across the room.
    10. Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley's non-verbal performances in that last shot.

    But really, there are so many to chose from that it's hard to narrow it down to just 10.

    Hey tech, save some for the rest of us! :)

    1 The scene with Maz crawling across the table; cups and things falling on top of BB-8, and the droid's reaction.

    2 The relationship between the nurse and Chewie was amazing. The nurse knew how to 'treat' wookies.

    3 Finn's expression when responding to Han's request for a trash compactor, "Yes, there is."

    1)BB-8 thumbs up....LOL
    2)Han Solo:"That not the way the force works"....LOL
    3)BB-8 Say "YEAP" to Rey....Cute beep sound.
    4)Poe give his brown jacket to Finn.....I like that.

    6)Han Solo give Rey a pistol for protection.......I like that too.
    7)Han Solo pass his hand slowly on Kylo face when Kylo kill him.Han Solo forgive him and show his love for him.......That was DEEP.
    8)When Rey make a piece of bread in water.....Emotional.
    9)Rey said to Finn(he was hurt by Kylo and he was in the hospital asleep)that they will see each other again......It was NOT a goodbye...:)
    10)Rey and Finn telling each other their names.....Just magical.

    1. Kylo says "look how old you've become." But Lor San Tekka burns him right back "you've become something far worse."
    2. Love when Rey cooks her little portion dumpling. How she stirs it with her finger and it rises into a little ball.
    3. Love when she first takes off in the falcon, how i grabbed the arm rests in the theater as the falcon tore through the outpost entrance. Thrilling and cringe enducing.
    4. Love the creak of the lid as Rey opens the box. Love how eery that scene is. And how they slow it down to almost painful degree.
    5. Love how effective the little girl screaming is. "noooooo!!! Come baaaack!!" It's so hard to get genuine emotion on film from a Young child. I don't know how they did it. But i cried like a five year old myself.
    6. I've seen the film 4 times. And i cry each time Rey cries when Maz tells her "the family you're waiting for - they're never coming back." Such incredible performance by Lupita Nyong'o and Daisy Ridley.
    7.the jedi steps score. In a word - mezmerizing.
    8. Kylo force pulls the officer to himself to choke him. Dayum.
    9.when kylo talks to vader. Driver's choices here are stunning. The little twitch of his head upward. His choices to pause at the right moments. When he says "grandfather" and we get the reveal of the mask. Just incredible.

    10. Dang i love this movie!!!

    I love that he sits with his back to the helmet. It's like he cannot face him because he's so ashamed. Fantastic stuff that really adds to the character.

    It's a really impactful scene because I believe NEITHER of them know their actual birth names. We know Finn doesn't, and it seems Rey may have given that name to herself based on the pilots name on the Rebel helmet.

    Your list is GOOD.I can tell you....Number 6 in your list is a GOOD one.It happen to me too.There are a lot of GOOD scenes in this movie that TOUCH our hearts.The one when Kylo kill his father.THAT was a DEEP one.It hit me VERY HARD and every time i watch this i can not believe HOW a son can kill his father.When a movie touch our hearts is a GOOD MOVIE.Between Kylo and Han Solo are something more.I think is personal.We will need to wait SW8 and SW9 to know more...:).

    Ok I forgot a big "little" one for me. When Han tries to jump to light speed from inside the hanger of the freighter, but the Falcon makes the infamous "hyperdrive failure" sound we heard so much in Empire Strikes Back. Then Rey says "compressor", and Han pushes the button. That sound effect is unmistakable and I'm glad they found a way to get it into the movie.

    Here's hoping Lando gets a chance to pilot the Falcon in Episode 8 and yell PUNCH IT!

    Dosmit Raeh was the Pilots name. It's in The Force Awakens Visual Dictionary.

    Just struck me that Rey and Finn both get their names from x-wing pilots.

    Yes!
    also, noteworthy that Kylo never calls Han father.
    he says, "Han Solo. I've waited for this day for a long time."

    he emotionally compartmentalizes.
    there are so many things that just seem right.
    and this is one of them.

    When Finn gets repeatedly shocked by BB-8 and then one for "extra measure"

    Finn having BB-8 dropped onto him inside of The Millenium Falcon

    When Threepio gets his gold arm back (took me until my NINTH viewing to notice that .
