Pop! Pop! Ep. 16 – Star Wars The Force Awakens Review!

Pop! Pop! the Pop Culture Podcast! loves Star Wars as much as you do (probably more, let’s be honest) and guess what little movie came out last week? Star Wars The Force Awakens!  The LA Nerd & Taylor dedicate almost an entire episode to their review of the newest addition to the Star Wars universe.  But first, of course there’s a little Nerd News comin’ your way!  Patrick Geraghty and Missy Dowling chime in on the following: Tom Holland being spotted with a certain magical Benedict Cumberbatch character (Spider-Man AND Doctor Strange!? Daaaaamn!); Harry Potter is kind of back with a trailer for Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them and Missy just so happens to be an expert on all things wizardry; and finally Justin Lin ditches fast cars for fast spaceships with the first trailer for Star Trek: Beyond! We know it’s a little clashing of fandoms, but it’s good, we promise!

Then, get ready for Star Wars because the guys leave no stone unturned in their Star Wars The Force Awakens review!  (Non-spoiler review first, don’t worry.)

Show Notes:

[0:00 – 1:37] – Intro & sweet smooth jams.

[1:38 – 6:45] – Tom Holland spotted on Doctor Strange set. Should Marvel use him just because they have him?

[17:26 – 26:44] – Star Trek: Beyond trailer reactions. 

STAAAARRRR WAAAARRRSSSS! (Don’t worry, non-spoiler review first)

[26:45 – 41:35] – The LA Nerd and Taylor start with their opening night experiences, talk about the importance of J.J. Abrams being involved with Star Wars, and a non-spoiler review of The Force Awakens.
