I find it interesting that during his introduction, Kylo Ren steps out of a surprisingly brightly lit shuttle into a very dark night.
Like, I know logically you wouldn’t want to be flying around the galaxy in a dark ship, but that’s quite a lot of bright lights staring us in the face. His personal shuttle seems to be keep quite a bit brighter on the inside than pretty much all of Starkiller Base.
Conversely, when Rey is introduced, she emerges from a vast place of darkness, and steps out into an extremely bright day.
Obviously the Star Destroyer isn’t “hers” per se, but it’s likely provided her livelihood for long enough that later on, she has become so familiar with these dark mazes of ruined ships that she feels comfortable enough to fly a starship straight through one of them.
I’m a sucker for cinematic contrast, but even more so, I’m a sucker for inverse presentations of contrast.

• Harrison looks stoned or like he’s about to be sick and has God knows what in his hand
• Mark is acting like a monkey
• Harrison has his arm around Mark
