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 23, 2019

It's time for the BIGGEST show we've ever done as we give The Rise of Skywalker the full Movie Defenders treatment! We play over 20 scenes as we digest this meaty box-office giant as 42 years of story telling comes to a close. We invite two guests on, Mark and Bart, two Patreon supporters, to help us because they are just as big of Star Wars nerds as we are! Before we talk about the film, we each rank our Top 5 moments of the Skywalker saga. Then, we digest the movie scene by scene and address the biggest criticisms of the film, the decisions made by the creators, and we give you all the reasons behind why the film is the way it is. So get ready to Lightspeed-Skip, don't underestimate a droid, and don't be afraid of who you are... it's FINALLY time for The Rise of Skyawlker!
