Happy Father's Day! To honor today's holiday we're visiting a modern Father/Son film hidden behind robots... Real Steel! This film has SO much going for it and was written so incredibly well. Many critics got lost in the fighting robot aspects, but look under the hood with us, and we'll walk thru all the genius writing and performances! Before we tackle Real Steel, we talk through our top 5 Father/Son movies of all time! So grab your voice recognition remote, stay out of the corner, and have as many Dr. Peppers as Donald can drink... it's time for Real Steel on The Movie Defenders podcast!
