Episode 162 The Shawshank Redemption

chatflix No Comments

This week Brose is locked up with Looch, Kathryn and Emily to chat one of the most beloved films of all time; The Shawshank Redemption. The Stephen King adaptation that just has IT, a film that won’t leave you in a state of MISERY, THE SHINING light in director Frank Darrabont’s career.

This week we ask the big questions; Why is this film in everyone’s favourite film list? What IS a Shawshank? And who is Stuart in Die Hard 2? Hey, Stuart!

Tim Robins, Morgan Freeman, Bob Gunton, Clancy Brown and Drake from Aliens star in this incredible film. Listen in to see if this is a 5 star winner from this week’s ChatFlix team.

Episode 159 Mini 33 Moana with Isabella Valette (Melb Fringe 2019)

chatflix No Comments

In our second Melbourne Fringe Festival episode for 2019, Brose chats Moana with Isabella Valette the stage of ‘How Far I’ll Go.’

We tackle the big issues; Can Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson sing? Why is the pig in this film? How do you pronounce Pua? And how many times did Brose cry during this film?

Episode 158 Batman & Robin

chatflix No Comments

This week Brose is joined by Bat-fan and After The Snow illustrator Trev Wood and comic book tragics; Looch and Jazz. They sit down to relive the 1997 big screen comic book flick: Batman and Robin.

Joel Schumacher’s first franchise instalment was a legitimate box office giant. The second effort… not so much… Warner Bros. wanted to sell toys, so they upped the ante and cast THE BIGGEST STAR IN THE WORLD; Arnold Schwarzenegger AND indie darling; Uma Thurman, fresh off Pulp Fiction.

The new baddies faced off against a recast Caped Crusader; George Clooney. And why not? I’m sure the core demographic loved George in ER… And Clueless star, Alicia Silverstone making her debut as Batgirl. Oh, and Chris O’Donnell… shows up… again…

After 20+ years what do the guys make of the 4th time out for the not-so Dark Knight? Are there fond memories or were they just left out in cold?

Episode 157 Mini 32 Princess Protection Program with Princess Problems (Melb Fringe 2019)

chatflix No Comments

In our first Melbourne Fringe Festival episode for 2019, Brose chats Princess Protection Program with two of the stars of Princess Problems; Meerna Yousif and Maddison Verduci.

We discuss whether Selena Gomez is better than Demi Lovato (or are they just one and the same), who is besties with who and will Brose ever watch this film ever again?

Princess Problems is on during Melbourne Fringe Festival; details and tickets at: melbournefringe.com.au

Episode 156 Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

chatflix No Comments

The 156th episode of ChatFlix brings you the 9th and latest flick from Quentin Tarantino: Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood.

In a spoiler-filled chat Brose, James and Danielle chat themselves back to the swinging 60’s and get entwined in a tale featuring faded stars, stuntmen, cults and free love in the final years of the Hollywoods Golden Age.

Who’s the better actor? Leo or Rick Dalton? Is Brad Pitt a believable stunt double even at 56?! And how does it all tie into Margot Robbie’s Sharon Tate and those real life events? Has QT overstayed his welcome? Or is 9th time a charm?

These questions may be answered in a little story that happened once upon a time… on ChatFlix.

Episode 155 Mini 31 Highlander: The Source

chatflix No Comments

From the dawn of time Highlander sequels came, moving silently through the 90s and 2000’s. No one has ever known of this made for television movie sequel; Highlander: The Source… until now!

This week’s Chatflix Mini has Stu and Shaun crossing swords once again, in an attempt to decapitate this TV movie, the final and arguably the worst of the Highlander sequels (which Brose
will also argue Brose, despite that he has never seen it)

Adrian Paul, Thekla Reuter, Cristian Solimeno and Peter Wingfield star in this film as the franchise goes out with a whimper. No one is asking for the recipe of this Secret Source.

There can be only one… only one more… there can be only one more ‘last one’… one.

Episode 154 Rear Window

chatflix No Comments

Brose is joined by Stu, James and Danielle to look through the lens at an Alfred Hitchcock classic!

As always we discuss the most important elements of this film; Why isn’t Jeffries into Lisa? Who has the better body at 46, James Stewart or Cary Grant? And how effective is a flash as weapon (before the handle is used to built a light sabre)?

Grace Kelly radiates as Raymond Burr grumbles through a film shot on one of Hollywood’s most spectacular sets.

Become a peeping tom with us and enjoy Rear Window.

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!
