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 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!

Episode 152: Ghostbusters 2

chatflix No Comments

Ghostbusters 2’s plot is the worst kind of popular tripe, its methods are sloppy, and its conclusion is highly questionable! Ghostbusters 2 is a poor film!

5 years after the original Ghostbusters blew us away we got Ghostbusters 2. Reuniting the original cast in a brand new story pitting then against a river of ectoplasm and a resurgence of paranormal activity.
Sticking two fingers high up in the air Brose is back in business with Ghostbusters comic collaborator Tristan Jones, Victorian Ghostbuster Cable and comedian Angus Brown to chat Ghostbusters 2.

Will they look back on the Ivan Reitman sequel fondly? Or are Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver and Ernie Hudson’s second efforts too little, too late?

Episode 151 Mini 29 Highlander 3: The Sorcerer

chatflix No Comments

Stu and Shaun sit down again to address another Highlander sequel; Highlander 3: The Sorcerer. Also; will Stu and Shaun resolve the name of this film? The Sorcerer? The Final Dimension? What exactly is it?!?

Remember Stu said last week that he had to give Highlander 2 a better score than he’d prefer so he would have ‘somewhere to go?’ Do you think he needed to save room for a higher or lower score…? Find out this week!

Mario Van Peebles, Deborah Kara Unger and Mako join a returning Christopher Lambert. Will you return to the Highlander with us?

Episode 150 The Abyss

chatflix No Comments

For our 150th episode we’re diving to 25,000 feet below the oceans surface. Pop on your best scuba gear and dive right in with Brose, Danielle and Jarrod as they explore, for its 30th Anniversary, The Abyss.

Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Michael Biehn and a water pseudopod.. yep, definitely a pseudopod and not something else… star in one of cinema’s most epic underwater sensations.

Together the Chatflix crew will sink deeper and deeper into writer/director James Cameron’s imagination. Will they find his most under appreciated flick or just The Abuse.

Episode 149 Mini 28 Highlander 2: The Quickening

chatflix No Comments

Stu and Shaun go head to head to decide if there is only one good Highlander sequel (or none at all). Over the next 4 weeks Stu and Shaun will take us through the 5 Highlanders sequels and hopefully don’t lose their heads.

Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery return and are joined by Shaun’s favourite Virginia Madsen and the original one armed man; Michael Ironside!

Step back to 1991 and see what we think of this epic sequel.
