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 26, 2022

It's time to take a look at an oft-forgotten sci-fi flick by one of the best modern sci-fi directors, Jon Favreau, as we dig into Cowboys & Aliens! We examine if there is more here than the public has forgotten, and get into the characters, writing, effects, and an absolutely stellar cast. Before we examine the film, we discuss our top 5 genre-blending movies in the same way that this movie is a sci-fi/western! Then we unpack the movie in a way like only we do. So grab your wrist-guns, get your six-shooters, and don't forget the dog... it's time for Cowboys & Aliens on The Movie Defenders podcast!
