STAR WARS EPISODE VII: THE FORCE AWAKENS

There has been an awakening... have you felt it? Here, point to the place on the doll where the Force touched you. That's right, boys and girls, Box Office Pulp is here to investigate the curious case of a Jakku native scavenger named Rey, an ace pilot and all around handsome dude named Poe, a former janitorial crew member turned defector (TRAITOR!) named Finn, and a very angry individual named Kylo - who hears the call of the light, but can't find anyone better to talk to about it than the corpse of Darth Vader. We're here to talk about the highest grossing movie of the last year, and perhaps the decade, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. And we'll be looking to understand answers to a great many questions troubling the fan community, from why Maz Kanata likes that wookie so much to where in the world Disney put the extra footage of Captain Phasma strangling the life out of a herd of Ewoks. But more importantly, how does the film stack up after all the hype? Where does it rank among the original trilogy? And just when can we expect those long overdue BB-8 microwaveable pizzas to hit your local supermarket? All these questions and more are answered as we take one last journey into a galaxy far, far away... (until the next one).
