This is the first episode to make the case that not all underrated films are considered bad. Some popular movies just come, leave an impact, and then fade away over time. As is the case with this weeks guest Aerin Moriarty. Pride & Prejudice was a big hit in it's day but it's not a movie you hear much about in 2021, but that doesn't mean the love for the film has faded amongst it's fans. Aerin comes on the show to discuss the points of the way movies advertising can affect it's target audience and how perceptions of a genre can lead to misconceptions of enjoyment. Aerin is also the host of the Palette Cleanser Podcast and part of the Montressor Media family of entertainment.

This podcast was made for movies like Josie and the Pussycats. Released in 2001 this is maybe one of the most misunderstood movies of the era, but for every misunderstood movie there are always the people who champion it. This movie has such a big fan that they wrote a book about it!

Today's guest is Russ Burlingame who works as an entertainment writer for comicbook.com. He fell in love with Josie and the Pussycats and took it upon himself to write a book on the film, covering it's development similar to how movies are covered in the modern era of film making. Needless to say that kind of passion had me curious.

If you want to pick up the book you can find it at http://www.josiebook.com/ and if you enter promo code DEFEND at check out you can get 20% off your purchase.

Whenever anyone asks me what my favorite comedy is, the first movie that is ever going to pop into my head is Clue. It may sound weird to think of a board game based film but Clue is bar none one of my favorite movies of all time. Luckily I know someone who feels the same! I sat down this week with a good friend of mine Allen Kesinger as we dissect and gush about maybe one of the most quotable movies of all time. We do our best to try and not recite the whole movie! With one of the best ensemble casts of all time, Clue is truly an underrated classic and a film that will absolutely stand the test of time.

Hello everyone and welcome to our first Defense of an actual film! When I started my last podcast, the movie that gave me the idea was Prometheus. I read the original leaked script (Alien Engineers) and that was the inception of the Shelved Film Podcast, so for me when putting this show together I felt it was appropriate that this would be the first film that I cover. Now normally my guest will be picking the movie but occasionally I will pick a film that I want to cover so this time I sat down with Jesse Ferguson and it was actually the first time they had seen the film. It lead to some interesting discussion about a movie that I really enjoy that comes with a sort of stigma.

Welcome to the first official episode of Defending Your Movie. Now today's episode is a little different because we aren't actually talking about a movie. This is a chat with current Giant Bomb employee Matthew Rorie about his former job as one of the founding members of Screened. Screened was a film website that I was a major fan of and deep in the community. Defending Your Movie as a podcast is an homage to a video feature that started on Screened. For me, doing this podcast right meant having someone on who ran the site as a way to thank them and pay tribute to the content that they made which I hope to keep alive. Rorie was kind enough to come on the show and talk about his time on Screened and how it was kind of a fly by the seat of your pants operation. We also get into some fun movie chat in the back half. We will be getting to movies starting with episode 2 but for now I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane about a little movie website that could!
