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.

Apr 5, 2021

Re-live a classic with the Movie Defenders podcast... it's time for Top Gun! Selected by long time supporter Mark Waters, we have an absolute ball diving into this one! We play many scenes, we laugh hysterically, talk about what's amazing, what's realistic, what's not, what's funny, what's sad, and the overall sheer awesomeness of the movie that helped forge a generation and defined what an action movie could be. It's a packed show, however and first we discuss the news surrounding the initial numbers coming out of the Zack Snyder's Justice League, and we get teary eyed as we discuss the top 5 tragic deaths in films. This movie has one and we get really emotional over some of these. Then the happy comes in droves as we have fun going over Top Gun! So, hit the breaks, he'll fly right by, stay out of the ladies room, and do some of that pilot shit... let's talk Top Gun!
