The Breakdown of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', 'Spotlight', 'Sisters', 'In the Heart of the Sea' and 'The Ridiculous 6'


This week the Breakdown reviews five pictures including one that is among the best of the year and another that is one of the worst. We know you don't care about that and what you really want is the review of the most hotly anticipated movie ever, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This is the movie we've been itching to talk about all year and now it is here. As always if you love the show then please spread the word as a growing base of listeners is the best way we can keep doing this.
