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.

Jun 9, 2019

Is Dark Phoenix a complete failure? Well The Movie Defenders sure don't think so! This movie is being trashed left and right all over the place... but is it fair? Is the narrative of this movie's reception based on what's in the film, or on the internet? We take a deep dive into the final chapter of 21st Century Fox's X-Men franchise and do so by playing many scenes right from the film. We have BOTH NON-SPOILER and SPOILER reviews so if you haven't seen it yet, don't worry you can still listen. Before we talk about the film we discuss the latest in Batman and DC news and then reveal our picks for the top 5 non-MCU Marvel films to date. So fire your optic-blasts, don't read minds without permission, and get in your X-Jets... it's time for Dark Phoenix!
