    My favorite are:

    Han Solo
    Transport fight showdown (with the lightning, etc)
    All Ben / Rey interactions (except Ben dying/so suddenly)
    All Poe / Zorii interactions
    The Rule of Two concept and execution

    That's probably it for me.

    Han/Ben redemption scene. Best scene in the movie, as it makes me look at the TFA scene between them so much differently now.

    The Beginning with Kylo and The Emperor. Great music, great atmosphere, creepy, creepy, creepy!

    Any scene with Leia. The fact that she was able to have a major role in the movie after she had passed and it came off as totally believable is such an underrated achievement by JJ.

    Luke lifting the X-Wing fighter. There is good nostalgia, and bad nostalgia, this is GOOD nostalgia.

    Rey/Kylo fight on the remains of Death Star 2, as the atmosphere was great.

    The ending where Rey goes back to Luke's home on Tatooine (I had no problem with Rey Skywalker response). It was a metaphor that we all came home to where we began in 1977.

    That's just a few, but that's just off the top of my head.

    I got a real kick out of the ending, and it's not just "Tatooine nostalgia", or whatever. I was actually kind of hoping that Rey at some point would take on the Skywalker name in the movie, and had no problems with how it played out. I know it's controversial, but for me the ending wasn't bad at all. It's bittersweet and emotional. The music also cemented the "finality" of it all in a wonderful way. I would also like to mention the first scene on the Falcon. The dialogue and editing felt very OT to me in a way I can't really describe, but I noticed it on every viewing and liked it.

    Other favorites: The return to Ach-To, Han and Ben-scene and when Lando and Poe talked about how the heroes won last time. A lot of the scenes toward the end feel like the last parts of Return of the Jedi, and I kind of loved it, despite not making for a very original movie.

    I have quite a few, but the big one for me is Ben and Han on the ruins of the Death Star.

    I really didn't expect that one. Even as someone who really doesn't consider himself a Han fan... that scene was good.

    I actually like the opening sequence the best. I’m very happy in how it was cut. Probably the very few that like it. I know many wanted more of Mustafar

    I really enjoyed it.

    I would've liked way more of it (as well as an in-movie affirmation of where they were somehow) but it was a really neat intro.

    I absolutely HATE that they have hell-bent on redeeming Kylo Ren, which was apparent from about the middle of the 2nd movie - I hate the way this series excuses mass murder -but the scene between Ben and Han was fantastic. Incredibly well-done.

    The light saber fights were also extremely well-done in this movie. Glad they got away from the silly overly choreographed bad CGI stuff from Episodes II and III.

    I loved the saber fights in TROS, especially the final battle on the ruins of the Death Star - thought they were fantastic. And also loved the pivot to the Han Solo scene with Ben. I thought that entire sequence alongside the death of Leia was really well done. Just a great emotional stretch in the movie.

    Also loved scenes with C-3PO in this movie - after the “humor” of TLJ totally fell flat for me, 3PO made me laugh multiple times and delivered some nice emotional moments as well. Unheralded MVP of the movie imo.

    There are a few scenes that I really love:

    - The opening scene with Kylo, discovering Exegol through his eyes really set the mood for the film
    - Rey's training course, it's a shame that the music isn't on the OST
    - Basically everything on Kijimi, Babu Frik is great and it ends with the force skype call that I found really inventive; once again great music, especially the rendition of Kylo's theme when he lands in the city
    - Rey vs the Sith Troopers & Ben vs the Knights of Ren, I get chills when Palpatine yells "The Jedi are dead" and the camera dollies in on Rey's face as she hands the lightsaber to Ben through the force bond
    - The return to Ajan Kloss at the end of the film, I love the warm cinematography

    3PO was fantastic. Back to his OT form, aand really allowed to let it shine in this movie, after being ridiculously unfunny in the prequels. JJ is significantly better at comedy than Johnson. The humor in 7 and 9 is great!

    We didn't go through months of quarantine using Zoom for people to still refer to it as a "Skype" call! ;)

    Really though, that was a great scene. Definitely appreciated it during my watch last night. In fact, it was kind of the moment that the movie finally started "working" for me this time.

    Han Solo, definitely.

    Also the moment where Lando shows up for the final battle with a zillion allies.
