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.

Mar 8, 2021

It's time to do something we normally don't do and that's review a video game! Why The Last of Us Part 2? Because it's, in our humble opinion, the best video game story ever told and it's akin to watching a really good movie. This game became "The Last Jedi" of the video game world, dividing fandom... and from what we can tell... a lot of fans of the series didn't give the game or story a chance. A misunderstood story by many, the layers of depth and nuance here are something on another level compared to almost every game before it. Joining us on this show is Scott's daughter, Alyssa, who is a massive The Last of Us fan and knows just about everything about these games having played this one through six times. We play lots of scenes from the game as we dissect this narrative masterpiece. So don't forget your explosives, be sure to sweep the room for Clickers, and be willing to forgive yourself for killing a dog... it's time for the first half of our shows on The Last of Us Part 2! (See episode 91 for the rest of our discussion into Abby's Day 1-3!)
