In 1981 John Carpenter dared imagine a not-too distant future (1997), when New York City would be walled off to the rest of the USA and turned into a maximum security prison. Terrorists have crashed the President within these walls and the President’s only hope is Kurt Russell (Trump wishes Russell was all he needed!).

with Aaron Gocs, Angus Brown and Brose Avard

As we wander aimlessly into winter here in Australia, Brose and Angus are joined by comedian Aaron ‘Gocsy’ Gocs to revisit the Cohen Brothers film Fargo.

With an Oscar winning performance from Frances McDormand and with Cohen Bros regulars William H Macy and Steve Buscemi, we trek into the white tundra as trouble is afoot.

Enjoy our insight and discussion and, if you only take one lesson from this episode, know that Cocsy has an abject fear of being murdered and left in a snowy wasteland!

chatflix No Comments

with Sonia di Iorio, Angus Brown and Brose Avard

This week Brose and Angus are joined by comedian Sonia di Iorio to discuss one of her fondest childhood films; Beetlejuice!

The comedy of Keaton and the darkness of Burton align perfectly and co-exist, balanced, in a way Burton never achieved again. The whimsy, the humour, death, suicide and claymation never looked so good!

Listen on to see what we thought and whether we summon the bio-exorcist himself by uttering his name three times…
