Episode 57: Tootsie

chatflix No Comments

Did you know it’s such a man’s world that even successful women in Hollywood are actually played by men. Cate Blanchett? Actually James Franco. Julia Roberts? A character invented by Robert De Niro! Emma Stone is actually Ryan Gosling, shooting La La Land was reeeeeally hard.

Where did they all get the idea? Dustin Hoffman’s Tootsie! Where struggling sharp tongued actor Dustin becomes sassy and loved actress Dustin. In a time when trans wasn’t a thing, this film is about a man learning the lesson that women are actually PEOPLE! I was shocked too! Some presidents STILL haven’t learned that lesson.

Join Brose, Matt, Shaun and Hayley Tantau in a little soap opera we call Chatflix.

Episode 56: Pans Labyrinth

chatflix No Comments

This film contains neither David Bowie or Captain Hook and therefore Trev was very confused why they called this film Pan’s Labyrinth. To be fair he also found the Spanish hard too.. oh wait there were subtitles? Well that makes it easier. Guillermo Del Toro directed Hellboy though so it’s as pretty as all get out. The Chatflix gang ignore Trev’s ramblings and discuss this visual tour de force

Episode 55: Batman Returns

chatflix No Comments

Tell me if you’ve heard this one. A Bat and a Cat walk into a sequel and bring a scene eating Penguin and.. a brilliant. Christopher.. Walken!

Trev jumps into the Bat-hosting chair with his Boy Wonder Brose as they are joined with Dale Maccanti from Trev’s comic After the Snow and Have You Been Paying Attention and Utopia actor Dilruk Jayasinha.

Tune in to see if we think this film is Purrrrfect or a Harp from Hell.

Episode 54: Batman (1989)

chatflix No Comments

A grim and gritty reboot of Batman from Pee Wee Herman director Tim Burton and starring Mister Mom’s Michael Keaton, what could possibly go wrong? Jade, Brose, Trev, and James squeeze into the black rubber suits and gather in the batcave to dance with the devilishly successful Batman 89 in the pale moonlight. What do these Jokers have to say about it?

Episode 53: Blade Runner

chatflix No Comments

Great Scott! Before we go Back to the Future with the new Blade Runner sequel, we chat about Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner.

Jade, Danielle Chau, Darren McFarlane, and Brose… or their replicants gather around the mics to question their own existence like tears in the rain and the distant future of 2019. We’ve got 2 years to get androids and flying cars people! Get on it! Harrison Ford is gonna be so pissed if we don’t get all this sorted soon.

You should also rate and review us on iTunes. Rutger Hauer said you should and he isn’t someone you want to ignore. Remember Blind Fury? He was a blind guy with a sword. Go to your local Blockbuster and grab it. It’s awesome.

Episode 52: Bram Stoker’s Dracula

chatflix No Comments

Dracula sucks! But only because he’s a vampire.

Matt, Shaun, Andy and Brose gather around their garlic pizza and medium rare stakes to chat about Francis Ford Coppolla’s Dracula film. It’s a film where all the English actors pretend to be European and all the American actors pretend to be English. Keanu Reeves plays Johnny “Utah” Harker who discovers his new friend Vlad isn’t actually who he says he is. Sadly there is no surfing on coffins but there IS Monica Bellucci!

Meanwhile does anyone remember that MTV awards where Adam West and Frank Gorshin did a parody of Interview with a vampire? It was the best and I hope you all track it down on Youtube.

Also don’t forget to rate and review us on iTunes and let us know if you actually read these descriptions!

Episode 51: Reservoir Dogs

chatflix No Comments

You know why we’re watching Reservoir Dogs? Because I said so. Matt wanted to pick his own movie. No way, no way. Tried it once, it doesn’t work. You get four guys all fighting over which movie they want, but they don’t know each other, so nobody wants to back down. No way. I pick!

The Chatflix crew assemble in an abandoned lounge room to talk about our first Tarantino film, and as we look at the stellar cast including Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel and Michael Madsen, fast dialogue and killer sound track we begin to suspect one of us is… Brose (turns out it was Brose)

Episode 50: Zodiac

chatflix No Comments

The Chatflix team are killing it this week by diving into the Zodiac killer mystery. David Fincher opens the serial killer box again inviting Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Edwards and Jake Gyllenhaal. Will the gang like this tale of true crime or will we find it as confusing as one of the killers notes.

Episode 49: The Fifth Element

chatflix No Comments

Luc Besson’s high octane space opera finally comes to Chatflix where we pull out our multi passes and travel into the 23rd century where cabbies and priests team up with a cosmic weapon to beat Evil and chew up ALL the scenery.

Supergreen.

Episode 48: A League of their own with Michala Banas and Toby Truslove

chatflix No Comments

During World War II, while all the troops were fighting that Hitler fella, there was nobody left to play baseball. You would think that was a good thing but America is odd, so they formed a women’s league… to see if it was baseball that was boring or the fact men were playing it… or something… Our very own league of left fields, pinch hitters and base stealers assemble on the Chatflix pitchers mound to talk about the film about those women. With not one, but two guest panelists; Upper Moddle Bogan star Michala Banas and Utopia’s Toby Truslove joining Brose and Danielle. A League of Their Own may smack our team out of the park or we may think it’s a foul ball.
