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 23, 2023

It's time to get back to what we do around here and talk about a movie that gets more grief that, in our humble opinions, it deserves... The Dark Knight Rises. A much anticipated ending to a fantastic trilogy, but one that had to follow one of the greatest movies ever, The Dark Knight Rises regularly catches crap from critics and fans alike. Is it earned? There's way more here than many see. Before we dissect the film, we break down our top 5 trilogy ending movies of all times. So grab your batarangs, make sure whatever it is comes in black, and don't forget to fix the autopilot... it's time for The Dark Knight Rises on The Movie Defenders Podcast.
