I know Finn says “Damn it!” during the Jakku escape.

Kylo kills Lor San Tekka at the beginning of the film, the stormtroopers kill the villagers, and Finn gets blood smeared across his helmet. I don’t think you can do much about the blood, but maybe you could trim the other two in a way that cuts away from those things sooner? I mean, you see them shooting at the villagers, but never see them get shot. Plus, it is kind of an important moment for Finn’s character.

The only thing I could think of would be to cut to BB-8 seeing the x-wing explode from a distance before we see everything resolved at the village, but you would lose a lot depending on when you cut away. This scene already does a pretty good job at cutting away from the violence, though.

For Han’s death, maybe you could cut to Rey, Finn and Chewie’s reaction a little sooner so we don’t see the initial stabbing. I don’t really see a way of cutting around Han’s death.
