Episode 166 The Joker

chatflix No Comments

No joking and no clowning around, this week the Chatflix team sit down for a SPOILER filled chat unpacking their reactions to the NEW release, JOKER.

Brose crams regular panelists, Danielle, Trev, Jarrod, James and Adam into a clown car as they chat garbage strikes, stand up comedy and late night talk show hosts.

Will Joaquin Phoenix terrifying portrayal of Arthur Fleck be remembered as a King of Comedy? Or something much, much worse? And is Todd Phillips, the guy who made Old School and the Hangover the right person to juggle such a delicate topic?

After much searching and investigating, Brose and Stu tracked down a phone booth and locked themselves inside to chat about Joel Schumacher’s 2002 enclosed space thriller Phone Booth!

An all star cast (Colin Farrell, Kiefer Sutherland, Forest Whitaker, Radha Mitchell and Katie Holmes), a single location and two weeks of shooting: what could go wrong? Listen this week to find out!

Episode 164 The Karate Kid

chatflix No Comments

This week Brose dons his PJs and gets his crane on as he chats with Danielle, Adam and James about the 1984 classic; The Karate Kid.

We chat Ralph Macchio’s machismo, Pat Morita’s clap and William Zabka’s babka. Why is this film so enduring after so many years and did we all realise it’s just a reboot of Rocky (it is even directed by the same person!)

Cobra Kai and the infamous The Karate Kid fan theory get a mention and we propose out own spin off films; The Karate Girlfriend and The Karate Man. Which would you see?

chatflix No Comments

Catch the Red Eye to a new Chatflix Mini. Stu’s allocated seat is right beside Brose, together they’ll chat another in a new string of Enclosed Space Thrillers. No extra leg room here!

Secure your seatbelt tightly as the two chat the Rachel McAdams and Cillian Murphy thriller from 2005.

You won’t need to know where your closest exits are because you’ll be cravin’ all the insights these two deliver on this sometimes oft forgotten Wes Craven flick.

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.

chatflix No Comments

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?
