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.

Jun 18, 2023

On this Father's Day we re-visit one of the best drama films ever from the 1980s, Stand By Me. A film that launched many careers, it is considered by many to be Rob Reiner's best film, and the best Stephen King film adaptation. Our hosts were the exact same age as these kids when the movie dropped. How did it land with us then, compared to how did it land with us now? Find out on the show today! Before we unpack the many layers of the story, we each give our favorite film picks from the movie's cast in a segment of There Can Be Only One. So make sure you pack some food, don't forget the comb, and always remember... two for flinching... it's time for Stand By Me on the Movie Defenders podcast!
