Episode 30: The Graduate

chatflix No Comments

The Chatflix team try and seduce you with the the 1967 classic the Graduate. Dustin Hoffman is a college graduate with no real aim in life… if this movie was set in 2016 he could just do a podcast! Instead he is seduced by older woman Mrs. Robinson played by Anne Bancroft while he falls for her daughter Elaine.

With Mike Nichols directing, a score by Simon and Garfunkel and a slew of academy awards we feel bad it’s taken our podcast 50 years to get here.

“Look, maybe we could do something else together. Mrs. Robinson, would you like to go to a movie?”

Episode 29: The Fly (1986)

chatflix No Comments

None of us can believe it’s taken 29 episodes to get to Jeff Goldblum but nature has finally found a way! The Chatflix crew roll up a newspaper and give a good swat at David Cronenberg’s classic horror The Fly.

The Fly is a dark and disturbing warning to those who don’t wash their hands before getting in their teleportation pods. I mean it’s basic hygiene people! What would Scotty say?!

Episode 28.5: Rogueview Ep

chatflix No Comments

We fly around the galaxy finding out what people thought of the latest addition to the Star Wars story.

Brose got on the Flixphone and called everyone as they left the cinema, popcorn still warm to get their thoughts.

Did it give Steele Saunders a new hope? Did Tristan Jones’ Force Awaken? Was Matt’s Caravan full of Courage? Hey not everyone of these is going to be gold…

Don’t forget to listen to Brose, Trev, Stu and Shaun discuss it more depth.

Episode 28: Rogue One

chatflix No Comments

We assemble our own ragtag group of rebels, Brose, Stu, Trev and Shaun Crawford from fakeshemp.net.

It’s a Jynferno of opinions as we cover all the thrills and spills of the prequel to the original that then became a sequel followed by two more sequels then three bad prequels (which we don’t discuss) followed by a sequel which was a lot like the orginal/sequel. With all of that it’s no wonder we needed flow charts and an elite cadre of Star Wars fans to talk about Rogue One.

Also don’t forget to listen to our all star rogueview ep.

Episode 27: Rocky

chatflix No Comments

Echo, Brose and Liesl strap on the gloves and climb in the ring to talk about the Man, The Myth, the Legend. The Italian Stallion: Rocky.

The 1976 film made Sylvester Stallone a star and launched one of the most enduring franchises in cinema history that is now 6 films long. Does Brose think the film manages to Rise up back on the streets? Does Echo think that a half man, half stallion with the eye of a tiger make an effective boxer?

“He doesn’t know it’s a damn show! He thinks it’s a damn fight!”

Also in this episode Brose chats to Jeremy Shada, Finn from Adventure Time, to discuss his love of film

Episode 26: Bridget Jones’s Diary

chatflix No Comments

Bridget Jones. She a drinker, smoker, appallingly bad public speaker as well as a wanton sex goddess with absolutely enormous panties. But Echo, Brose, Tamzen and Trev likes her, very much. Just as she is.

Join us as we drink some chardonnay, sip some blue soup and talk about a role model for the 21st century and the love triangle between childult Hugh Grant and haughty Colin Firth (who should totally rethink the length of his sideburns).

Episode 25: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

chatflix No Comments

Film wizard guests Matt and Leisl join muggle Echo and Brose as they board the train at Platform 9 and 3/4 to witness Harry, Ron and Hermione’s first year at Hogwarts.

The mix between grange hill and lord of the rings made Harry Potter the second biggest franchise of all time, making Warners rich and running around on a broom the coolest it’s been since Salem 1692.

What did we think? Well it’s got Richard Harris, Maggie Smith, Robbie Coltrane and Alan Rickman in it so we think it’s magic.

“I hope you’re pleased with yourselves. We could all have been killed – or worse, expelled. Now if you don’t mind, I’m going to bed.”

Episode 24: Stranger Than Fiction

chatflix one comments

Harold Crick is a very boring man, and as an auditor for the IRS he probably should die.. but that doesn’t make it any easier for him to hear that an omniscient narrator plans to kill him. Harold needs to find the narrator and convince her to change his story or if that fails maybe take control of his own life.

Join Echo, Brose, Stu and Leisl as they get very meta and provide commentary on a film about a book and a few amazing characters including Will Farrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emma Thompson and Dustin Hoffman.

“Some plots are moved forward by external events and crises. Others are moved forward by the characters themselves.”

Episode 23: Stand By Me

chatflix No Comments

You’ll never have friends like the ones you had when you were 12…

But Echo, Brose, Trev and Summer are going to give it our best shot anyway.

Join us as we wander down the train tracks with Gordy, Chris, Teddy and Vern to discuss this 1986 Steven King penned tale of four friends and how it’s not about the destination but rather the journey.

Go on, Gordie, it’s a swell story.

Episode 22: Network

chatflix No Comments

Join Echo, Brose, Trev and Danielle to discuss a 40 year old satire that somehow became reality.

Paddy Chayefsky delivered a prophetically chilling vision of news as entertainment. Directed by Sidney Lumen with a multi-Oscar winning cast including Faye Dunaway, Peter Finch and Beatrice Straight as well as film legends William Holden, Robert Duvall and Ned Beatty the Chatflix team have a lot to chat about.

Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’
