    A Force to Remember: Rogue One

    With a new Star Wars film released, Karl and Shannon are back to discuss it, along with a film of Shannon's choosing. It's been a year since the last episode, but well, it's been a year since the last Star Wars, as well. So I think we all agree that the release schedule for this podcast makes sense. Yes? Okay, cool.

    After making it through Rogue One (with both a spoiler-less and spoiler-full discussion), Shannon brings it home with her film choice: Legally Blonde. How did the law school days of Elle Woods stand up to the crushing, immeasurable power of the Death Star? You'll have to listen in to find out.

    If you have a spare moment, head to iTunes and leave us a rating and review. And if you have something of your own to say about Legally Blonde or Rogue One, we'll be happy to address it on-air for the next Box Office Poison. You can also find more great Crosstawk shenanigans on Twitter (@crosstawk).

    Thanks for listening!

    A Force to Remember: Episode 7

    Well hello there! It's time for a very special episode of A Force to Remember. Now that Episode VII's been release, Shannon and I dusted off this old miniseries and gave it another go, going over The Force Awakens with an extended hot take review. Then, in keeping with tradition, we pair the discussion with a review for another movie, the new Tina Fey/Amy Poehler vehicle, Sisters. Did we find Kylo Ren and the First Order as endearing and hilarious as the Ellis Sisters of Orlando? You'll have to listen in to find out!

    Also, as a general warning, we go heavy into Star Wars spoilers, so tread carefully if you haven't seen the movie yet.

    And be sure to come back on Friday when the whole BOP crew gets in on some Star Wars action, along with special guest Scott Thompson!

    A Force to Remember: Episode 1

    Hello and welcome to the very first episode of A Force to Remember! Each week for the next six weeks, your venerable host, I, Karl Castaneda, will discuss each of the six Star Wars films with my girlfriend, Shannon. You see, Shannon's never seen any of the Star Wars films, and has agreed to indulge me in this on one condition: I also have to see one of her favorite films from her childhood/teenage years, all culminating in me seeing her favorite film of all time - An Affair to Remember.

    So this week we're covering Episode I: The Phantom Menace (yup, we're going in THAT order) and Shannon's pick - Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. How will a childlike Anakin compare to Lisa Kudrow accepting an award on-stage with only a bra on? You'll have to listen in to find out!

    Want some of your listener mail to be read on-air for Episode 6? Send it over via email (crosstawk@gmail.com), Twitter (@crosstawk) or in the comments section on the website. Thanks for listening, and we'll see you next week!
