The Movie Defenders

The Movie Defenders podcast is a show dedicated to talking about the best things about the films you love, not tear everything down.

Dec 5, 2021

Let's go back in the way-back machine to reach back for some nostalgia as the Movie Defenders review a Rocky film for the first time ever! We don't just review any Rocky film... we review the new re-cut version of Rocky IV: Rocky vs. Drago - The Ultimate Director's Cut! What happens when a director removes half the movie, and puts that same amount back in? Let's find out together! Even if you haven't seen this movie, but saw the original, we'll play a lot of the new stuff for you and walk through every difference. This isn't just a normal Director's Cut as the entire film is re-edited! But before that we talk some big DC Snyderverse news that's cropped up recently! Then we dissect our Top 5 Rocky/Creed movie moments before tackling a brand new version of Rocky IV! So grab your stars and stripes trunks, get out and job and chop some wood, and don't forget to throw in the towel... it's time for Rocky IV: The Ultimate Director's Cut on The Movie Defenders podcast!
