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.

Aug 30, 2020

It's time for Turtle Power as the Movie Defenders re-examine an oft-forgotten piece of Ninja Turtle lore... 2007's animated TMNT. With many consider to be the best Ninja Turtle flick made yet, TMNT needs some bigger guns than just us... so friend of the show and Patreon supporter Mark Nattress joins us to break it down. But first, we had a week full of movie news, some good, some horrible. We start with the bad and discuss the passing of Chadwick Boseman before jumping into the delicious goodness that was the DC Fandome and talk some Snyder Cut, Wonder Woman 84, The Batman, and Black Adam! Then it's time for our Top 5 cartoon intros of all time in honor of our film. Then we unpack this 2007 movie with Mark's help... so order up some pizza, bow to your Sensei, and grab your dual weapon of choice... it's time for TMNT!
