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.

Jul 16, 2023

Ridley Scott is one of the GOATs and we revisit one of his more recent works, The Martian! Along with friend of the show, Mark Martin, we head back to Mars and dissect this film and play a dozen scenes from the movie to talk about. A film nominated for many Academy Awards we see how it holds up today. Also as part of our discussion we review our top 5 movies about survival before getting into the movie. So, grab your duct tape, put on some disco music, and don't forget the potatoes... it's time for The Martian on The Movie Defenders podcast!
