When Finn first arrives at the Resistance base on D'Qar, six Resistance troopers run towards the camera. A moment later, they pass Finn again, this time moving away from the camera. As Poe gets out of his X-Wing, a long haired young man runs past carrying two boxes. The same man with the boxes runs past Poe once more when Dameron greets BB-8. Immediately after that, two pilots, one of whom has short white hair, run past Finn twice. Finally, a group of three pilots run past Poe before he reunites with Finn, and when the two of them are talking, the same three pilots casually stroll by in the same direction as before. See more »

Well, because of you, now we have a chance. The General's been after this for a long time.
Lor San Tekka:
Oh, the General? To me, she is royalty.
Well, she certainly is that.

The end credits music is slightly different on the Blu-Ray version of the film - we get to hear a bit more of Rey's theme than what we heard in the theatrical version. See more »
The acting is not right in this. The story is so contrived that my suspension of disbelief never got a centimeter off the ground. And neither did the so-called plot, which is cloned (as usual with this director). The acting wasn't bad, it was comically terrible. They were just poorly cast.
