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 20, 2021

It's time to go DEEP into analysis mode with this show! It's time for Blade Runner 2049. One of the best sci-fi sequels ever produced, and one that had layers and layers of philosophy, theology, and mythology. This movie has too much to unpack for the two of us so we brought in reinforcements with our great friend Owen Payne! Before we tackle this beast of a film, we also each rank our top 5 Cyberpunk films of all time! Then, it's off to the world of Blade Runner! (It's a long show so don't forget we have chapter headings and timestamps in the description!) So grab your little wooden horse, make sure you're on your baseline, and contemplate the meaning of humanity... it's time for Blade Runner 2049!
