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 23, 2019

Is the way we remember 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man accurate after a re-watch? Despite losing the web-slinger to Marvel, does Sony's first step in creating a "Spidey Cinematic Universe" hold up? We take a fresh look at this film as we start our Summer of Spider-Man on The Movie Defenders podcast. First, we address some huge news with the show, and our new home, The Prescribed Films Podcast Network! We talk about the changing of networks, the reasons why, and what it means for our show. We talk about a special deal with have for new Patreon supporters, and how we have re-priced our support tiers. Then it's time for films as we talk about Joker getting an R rating and the top 5 pieces of movie memorabilia that we want. Then it's time to 'Thwip' all over the place as we unpack and discuss one of Sony's last live-action Spider-Man films. So don't climb into that room filled with glowing spiders, remember your responsibility, and don't rush your crazy cross-species serum to human trials... it's time for The Amazing Spider-Man!
