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.

Nov 16, 2020

Did you love The Last of Us story? Re-live it with The Movie Defenders Podcast! We play a lot of scenes right from the game while we talk all about it! What makes two movie buffs who review films for a living stop to review a video game? Maybe the best story narrative for a game ever created! Amazing story, narratives, complex characters, and acting for days... this game exceeded any and all expectations when it dropped in 2013. And, for this show, Scott's daughter Alyssa joins us to talk about the story... because she has been obsessed with it all year and there is no bigger authority on The Last of Us! We examine why! (This is a long show, but see below in this description for chapter timestamps to skip things if you like!) Before the game story discussion, we have a fun segment of "This or That" choosing between our favorite movie-related stuff. Then we dive deep into the narrative, characters, and moments that make this one of the most compelling stories of any medium. So, scrounge for that ammo, listen hard for a clicking sound, and don't forget your broken watch... let's talk The Last of Us!
