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 19, 2022

After a decade in the making it's finally time to head back to Pandora with Avatar: The Way of Water. We have a full NON-Spoiler discussion so you can listen to it before you go over the holidays. Can James Cameron re-capture part of the magic of the first one? We'll find out as we play many scenes right from the movie and dissect this long, giant of a film in ways only we do. Before heading back to Pandora, we discuss the giant news out of the world of DC, and we pick our Top 5 "Water" movies of all time. Which movies did we choose? Find out on the show! Then we head back to cryo-sleep and wake up in the world of Avatar for round 2. So hug your spirit animals, grab your 3D glasses, and whatever you do, escape the shame of being useless because Sullys stick together... it's time for Avatar: The Way of Water on The Movie Defenders podcast!
