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 3, 2023

We start the holidays off right with one of our favorite Christmas movies ever... The Muppet Christmas Carol! We are huge Muppet fans and this movie has so much going for it, including an incredible performance by Michael Caine who plays the part straight up with all the emotion you could ask. Great songs and soundtrack and a wonderful take on a classic, this film has it all. Before we talk the movie however... we each discuss movies that we want to change the cast out for The Muppets! It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights, it's time to meet the Muppets on this episode of The Movie Defenders podcast!
