One week ago, our Epic Film Guys were primed with excitement for the opening of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. After the show, the two had vastly different reactions: Justin loved it so much he has since seen it a further two times, and Nick was so disappointed that he scrapped any plans for a repeat viewing. The battleground is set as we provide our full, spoiler-filled review of The Force Awakens!
We also look ahead to next week's best of 2015 episode, where we'll be counting down our best (and worst!) of the year. As much as we agree on things sometimes, expect two very different lists. We also discuss the further re-branding of the podcast on this final episode of the Reel Rundown. This week in Epic Previews, we're reviewing trailers for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, and the "spiritual" sequel to Dazed and Confused, Everybody Wants Some!
