Episode 42: Father of the Bride

chatflix No Comments

Trev isn’t sure he’s ever seen this film. Steve Martin is in it. His character’s name is probably George. He looks like a George. Trev also thought there was a flamboyant character played by Balky from Perfect Strangers, Brose informs him that it’s actually Martin Short. Trev can tell you it’s about a wedding. George’s son/daughter is getting married to someone. He’s relatively confident that hilarity ensues with just the right amount of saccharine sweetness. He also suspects there’s a scene where someone goes to the bathroom and there’s a wedding swan in the bath! HA!

You know who HAS seen this film? Brose, Jade, Leisl and Michael Chamberlin. Join them as they look at the 1991 film Father of the Bride.

chatflix No Comments

In 2017, after a worldwide economic collapse, the U.S. has become a totalitarian police state, censoring all cultural activity.

But enough about politics! This week we watch the Arnold Schwarzenegger classic Running Man as a falsely convicted man who has to compete for his live on a reality tv show. It’s no Master Chef but we liked it!

Ep 38: Robocop (1987)

chatflix No Comments

Detroit is bankrupt with a privatised Police Force and the private sector experimenting with war machines on the general public. No, its not 2017, it’s Paul Verhoeven’s prophetic Robocop. You’d buy that for a dollar.. but you don’t have to because we’re giving it to you for free!

Join Brose “half man- half donut machine”, Matt “half man – quarter chicken and chips”, and comedian Daniel “half man- half price on Tuesdays” Connell as they chat about this 1987 satirical masterpiece.

Bonus! Brose and Leisl chat to comedian Alice Fraser about her 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Show “Empire” and her film inspirations.

Episode 37: Princess Bride

chatflix No Comments

Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles… Surely one film that contains all that is inconceivable?!

This week Brose, Tamzen, Stu, and Caity sat in bed with their blankets pulled tight as they talk about a pirate, a princess and the greatest love story of all-WAIT. Love story? is this a kissing story? Are you trying to trick me?

Episode 36: Beauty and the Beast (1991)

chatflix one comments

A tale old as time (or at least as old as 1991), when a witch cursed a prince to become a beast because… we’re not really sure why actually.

Anyway the curse could only be broken when four grown men – Brose, Stu, Trev and Matt O’Neill – gathered to talk about this Disney classic and the difficulties in finding a fork in the castle once the curse was broken.

Episode 35: Wayne’s World

Party on Brose, Party on Tamzen.

The gang are joined in their blue AMC pacer by comedian performer Hayley Butcher as well as regular guest Stu Wilson, as they crank Bohemian Rhapsody and have a schwinging good time talking about the 1992 classic Wayne’s World, based on the SNL sketch created by Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, and with ridiculously good looking Rob Lowe and Tia Carrere, the question is “Are you worthy?”

Episode 34: Dirty Dancing

chatflix No Comments

This week the Chatflix team gather and see if we swoon over Patrick Swayze. The dude was star of Roadhouse for pete’s sake! In Dirty Dancing however he tries to be even cooler (science is unsure how) as Catskills dance instructor Johnny Castle. Johnny. Castle! Even the name is tested in a laboratory to be arctic cool!

Joining him is Jennifer Grey and legendary Jerry Orbach of Law & Order fame! (Dun dun!) Disappointingly Jerry is kept out of the dirty dancing.

Brose, Tamzen, Matt and Danielle: one of these people put this film in the corner. But which one?
