Episode 153 Mini 30 Highlander: Endgame

chatflix No Comments

This week Stu and Shaun chat the nature of Highlander villains having a name begging with ‘K,’ who is the best McLeod and was Ross Whedon’s Buffy: The Vampire Slayer influenced by this film?

Highlander Endgame sees the merging of the film series and the TV series (yes, there was a TV series!) so we have double McLeods with Duncan and Connor. Christopher Lambert and Adrian Paul team up to defeat Bruce Payne’s Kell (see, ‘K’) and an appearance by Donnie Yen’s Jin Ke (another ‘K’).

We promise you will enjoy this podcast more than the film… unless you are Shaun!

Episode 152: Ghostbusters 2

chatflix No Comments

Ghostbusters 2’s plot is the worst kind of popular tripe, its methods are sloppy, and its conclusion is highly questionable! Ghostbusters 2 is a poor film!

5 years after the original Ghostbusters blew us away we got Ghostbusters 2. Reuniting the original cast in a brand new story pitting then against a river of ectoplasm and a resurgence of paranormal activity.
Sticking two fingers high up in the air Brose is back in business with Ghostbusters comic collaborator Tristan Jones, Victorian Ghostbuster Cable and comedian Angus Brown to chat Ghostbusters 2.

Will they look back on the Ivan Reitman sequel fondly? Or are Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver and Ernie Hudson’s second efforts too little, too late?

chatflix No Comments

Stu and Shaun sit down again to address another Highlander sequel; Highlander 3: The Sorcerer. Also; will Stu and Shaun resolve the name of this film? The Sorcerer? The Final Dimension? What exactly is it?!?

Remember Stu said last week that he had to give Highlander 2 a better score than he’d prefer so he would have ‘somewhere to go?’ Do you think he needed to save room for a higher or lower score…? Find out this week!

Mario Van Peebles, Deborah Kara Unger and Mako join a returning Christopher Lambert. Will you return to the Highlander with us?

Episode 150 The Abyss

chatflix No Comments

For our 150th episode we’re diving to 25,000 feet below the oceans surface. Pop on your best scuba gear and dive right in with Brose, Danielle and Jarrod as they explore, for its 30th Anniversary, The Abyss.

Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Michael Biehn and a water pseudopod.. yep, definitely a pseudopod and not something else… star in one of cinema’s most epic underwater sensations.

Together the Chatflix crew will sink deeper and deeper into writer/director James Cameron’s imagination. Will they find his most under appreciated flick or just The Abuse.

Episode 149 Mini 28 Highlander 2: The Quickening

chatflix No Comments

Stu and Shaun go head to head to decide if there is only one good Highlander sequel (or none at all). Over the next 4 weeks Stu and Shaun will take us through the 5 Highlanders sequels and hopefully don’t lose their heads.

Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery return and are joined by Shaun’s favourite Virginia Madsen and the original one armed man; Michael Ironside!

Step back to 1991 and see what we think of this epic sequel.

Episode 148 The Fast and the Furious (2001)

chatflix No Comments

Buckle up! Chatflix is Fast and the topic this week is Furious. The Fast and the Furious to be exact. Put 3 nerds in a room and try and keep up, NOS optional.

Film nerd Brose is joined by regular nerd Jarrod and off mic ChatFlix Alum AND (self confessed) car nerd Tim Lewis!

Chatting the first flick in one of cinemas BIGGEST franchises like the MCU and Star Wars before it. It’s a tale as old as time, it’s the little race car engine that could!l starring a charismatic Vin Diesel, tough-as-nails Michelle Rodriguez, cute as a button Jordana Brewster and a present Paul Walker.

Episode 147 Mini 27 Police Academy: Mission to Moscow Watch Along

chatflix No Comments

ChatFlix presents the first ChatFlix Watch Along!
Famous for being known as the very worst film in the franchise, we advise that if you ARE going to watch it, watch along with Chatflix!

Brose and James protect you as they chat while watching Police Academy: Mission to Moscow to serve as an alternative commentary track.

A reduced cast of Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook, George Gaynes, David Graf and G.W. Bailey reunite with newcomer Charlie Schlatter and head to Russia for this giant mister. Even support from Christopher Lee, Claire Forlani and Ron Pearlman make little difference to this Lada of a car crash.

Episode 146 Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

chatflix No Comments

This week Brose, Stu, James and guest Stephen Rowley don their brown hats and brown leather jackets and light brown pants… so much brown Jones!… and explore the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!
Is it an exciting Kingdom with great stunts, witty dialogue and fun times? Or is it an interminable Kingdom with no plot, bad script and bizarre performances? I think you already know!
Regardless of the quality of the film, this week’s episode is a lot of fun and you should listen to pain and humour involved in discussing this much maligned film.

Episode 145 Mini 27 Police Academy 6: City Under Siege

chatflix No Comments

Brose and James join forces to chat the final Police Academy film ever made! What…? There’s one more after this? Why?

Brose and James join forces to chat the penultimate Police Academy film ever made; City Under Siege.

Much like Assignment Miami Beach, a trimmer more streamlined cast go head to head with a mysterious villain. Bubba Smith, Marion Ramsay, Leslie Easterbrook, Michael Winslow, Matt McCoy and David Graf return to represent George Gaynes’ Lassard with the contstant interference of G.W. Bailey and Lance Kinsey’s Harris and Proctor! Bruce Mahler returns as Fackler (why?!?!) and Kenneth Mars pops up as the mayor!

Sit back and enjoy the last watchable Police Academy film ever made!

chatflix No Comments

Hail to the King Baby!

Before you see Jon Favreau’s remake of The Lion King listen to our take on the 1994 original and remember what makes Disney the true King of animated features!

Brose just can’t wait to be king, Kathryn is a little Hukana Mutata about it all (roughly translated it means No Worries ((for the rest of your days)) and Gabby really can feel the love… tonight…

Pull up a space on Pride Rock and listen along, its the other circle of life that Mufasa isn’t telling you about!
