Episode 207 Escape from New York

chatflix No Comments

with Marshall Jackson, Angus Brown and Brose Avard

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!).

Jackson Marshall from We Watched This Movie Podcast breaks into Chatflix to chat Escape From New York with one-eyed Brose and Angus who has been injected with micro-explosives. The clock is ticking. Breaking out is impossible but downloading our newest episode is simple.

chatflix No Comments

with Tosh Greenslade, Angus Brown and Brose Avard

This week Brose and Angus don some sunglasses with Mad as Hell’s Tosh Greenslade to chat Roddy Piper starring, John Carpenter Classic; They Live!

In an episode that runs just a minute or two shorter than the epic alley way fight sequence, listen to find out if we wake up to the fact that aliens have taken over the Earth?

chatflix No Comments

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!

Episode 203 Beetlejuice

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…

with Claire Sullivan, Angus Brown and Brose Avard

Reality is tough, reality is hard, reality bites!

Claire Sullivan joins Brose and Angus to chat this 1994, post grunge, pre-internet, Ben Stiller directorial debut; Reality Bites.

Recruiting Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Jeneane Garofalo and Steve Zahn to illustrate the frustrations of youth and the perils of Generation X.

One thing we can guarantee is this week ChatFlix doesn’t bite but reality sure does!

Episode 201 Four Weddings and a Funeral

with Jess Perkins and Angus Brown (and Brose Avard)

Can you feel it in your fingers? Or feel it in your toes? Its time for a BRAND NEW episode of Chatflix and this time it’s Three Panelists and a Podcast when we look back to 1994 for Four Weddings And A Funeral with Brose, Angus and for the first time EVER, Comedian and Triple J presenter Jess Perkins. 

Before Notting Hill, or even Love Actually, Richard Curtis wrote this outrageously funny affair with a dashingly young Hugh Grant, the engaging (wink, wink) Andie McDowell and scene stealing Rowan Atkinson about a committed bachelor potentially discovering love over the course four weddings and, you guessed it, one funeral!

So if you really love podcasts… Come on and listen to our latest shooowww 

Come on and let it, 
Come on and let it, 
Come on and let it shoooowwww

Episode 200 Jaws

chatflix No Comments

with Jade Goodge, Stuart Wilson and Trevor Wood (and Brose Avard)

This week ChatFlix celebrates 200 Episodes! And we got the band back together; Jade Goodge, Stuart Wilson and Trevor Wood (and Brose Avard).

But which film would be worthy to celebrate such a milestone? (I know it’s written above this blurb, but come with me here…)

That’s right, JAWS! (The forbidden film)

For those of you that have been with us since the beginning, you’ll know that ChatFlix regular Jade was forbidden to watch Jaws. Well, to celebrate the 200th episode we made her watch it!

Steven Spielberg directs Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfus and Bruce (the shark) in this 1975 classic (and famous remake of the TV film Duel).

So slip on your floaties, slop yourself onto a boogie board and slap on some baby oil because it’s the Summer of ’75 and we’re hitting that beach!

For our 199th episode we take podcasting to new lengths when we chat Disney’s 50th animated feature and visit the, rather unfortunately named, Corona Kingdom to chat – Tangled

So Brose’ll ZOOM a panelist
Or maybe two or three
Illustrator Kayla can add a few new paintings to his gallery 
Comedian Isabella’ll play guitar and knit
And cook and basically
Leaving Jazz to wonder, when will my life begin? 

And we’ll keep wonderin’ and wonderin’ And wonderin’ …geez!
Maybe Mother Gothal DID know best. Stay in, stay healthy, plug in and get all Tangled up with us this Easter
