The Movie Defenders is a podcast which discusses the positive aspects of popular movies. Most movie review podcasts spend the entire time tearing down the movies you love instead of celebrating them. We take popular movies that have been ridiculed by critics and defend them. Come listen to a fun discussion of the movies you love, or perhaps re-consider a movie again that you didn't like as much as you wish you did. If you like movies, you found the only podcast with movie reviews that loves them as much as you do!
Ep 93: Top Gun
Re-live a classic with the Movie Defenders podcast... it's time for Top Gun! Selected by long time supporter Mark Waters, we have an absolute ball diving into this one! We play many scenes, we laugh hysterically, talk about what's amazing, what's realistic, what's not, what's funny, what's sad, and the overall sheer awesomeness of the movie that helped forge a generation and defined what an action movie could be.
Ep 92: Zack Snyder's Justice League
It's here! The film true DC fans have waited years for has arrived: Zack Snyder's Justice League! We unpack this gem in a way only we can, by analyzing the story, moments, and reasons for everything. We play lots of scenes from the film and dissect them.
Ep 91: The Last of Us Part 2 - Abby - Day 1-3
It's time to finish our analysis of the incredible story in The Last of Us Part 2! This time we tackle the second half of the game and Abby's Day 1-3! (For the first part of our analysis of The Last of Us Part 2, see Episode 90.)
Ep 90: The Last of Us Part 2 - Ellie - Day 1-3
It's time to do something we normally don't do and that's review a video game! Why The Last of Us Part 2? Because it's, in our humble opinion, the best video game story ever told and it's akin to watching a really good movie.
Ep 89: The Wolverine
Time to re-live one of the most underrated super hero films of all time... The Wolverine on The Movie Defenders Podcast! We play many scenes right from the film, and look back at the movie largely forgotten in the midst of the birth of the DCEU and the rise of the MCU. James Mangold and Hugh Jackman twice teamed up to bring a Wolverine movie to life, and this was the first. How does it stack up today?
Ep 88: Tenet
It's time to make your brain hurt as we try and review, and explain, Chris Nolan's latest... Tenet! We walk through each part of the movie and probably do more explanation than analysis but we try and do both! Before we get to the film we talk about movies we've seen recently and how we tend to 'root' for the writers more than the characters. We also break down our best plot twists in movie history.

A new perspective
I started listening to this show because of it crossing over with The Order 66 podcast and what a gem it is. I don’t always agree with them but that’s not really the point. They always make good points about movies and have some pretty awesome talking points. Would recommend to anyone who maybe wants to like a movie a bit more.
Great concept well executed!
Thanks for taking the time to produce this podcast. It’s great for my commute. Would love to hear your take on the three Dungeons & Dragons movies. Keep up the good work!
Great group with quality casts! Check them out!
