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.

Apr 10, 2022

It's time for us to review a very well-received and award-winning whodunit thriller... Knives Out! With a fantastic ensemble cast, Rian Johnson weaves a creative mystery that's honestly unlike most modern films in all the best ways. We'll talk about all the incredible writing, performances, nuance, things you might not have caught, and every plot twist. But before that, we play "There Can Be Only One" as we are forced to pick the very best film from several of the cast members. Then it's time to analyze the winner for Best Screenplay at the Oscars! So don't forget to clean your shoes, hide all the evidence, and make a copy of that toxicology report... it's time for Knives Out on The Movie Defenders podcast!
