Episode 13: Batman the Movie (1966)

chatflix No Comments

The most batusi-ed film to ever slide down a batpole into our hearts.

Jade, Brose, Trev and Lucas Testro, director of the brilliant short film Capes get together to wax lyrical of the greatest Batman ever. Say what you want about Nolan’s trilogy but in one film Adam West and Burt Ward fight off sharks, fight FOUR villains and saved baby ducks, nuns, young lovers, a marching band AND the entire World Council! Bale couldn’t even save his girlfriend!

Episode 12: All The President’s Men

chatflix No Comments

With characters like Tricky Dicky and Deep Throat you would be forgiven for thinking this weeks episode was a total smut-fest but instead Jade, Brose, Stu and Nick Coe get all cultured and political and talk about the classic Redford/Hoffman drama All the President’s Men.

Based on the true story of Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward’s investigation into the 1972 break in at the Watergate Hotel that lead to Nixon’s resignation the film follows the two reporters as they gather sources that aren’t twitter quotes, do thorough research and don’t do a single list article. They are practically unrecognisable from modern journalists.

Nick’s Guilty Pleasure

We haven’t seen this film so it’s unfair to judge Nick too harshly so we think we should be lenient and just give Nick thirty five life sentences. Zac Efron and De Niro are the comedy duo that nobody demanded and yet somehow we got, We’re assuming Efron plays the title role.

It’s 1986 and Jim Henson’s camera lingers lovingly on a shot of David Bowies crotch. It captivates the world and 30 years later Brose, Jade, Stu and muppets guru and Project producer KB Barker gather to talk about the not-at-all creepy story of a 14 year old girl being wooed by a grown man in leggings

We discuss the amazing world of the Labyrinth filled with Brian Froud’s delightful creatures under the direction of Jim Henson.

Mainly we talk about Bowie. You want to know why? Because he’s the flippin Goblin King that’s why!

KB’s Guilty Pleasure

Long before we willingly posted our every movement on social media films such as Enemy of the State fed off our big brother paranoia by pairing professional curmudgeon Gene Hackman with Will Smith impersonator; Will Smith. together they destroyed phones, wrapped their heads in foil and ran away from satellites. We’re going to find KB not guilty because this film is stylishly directed by Tony Scott. Enjoy.
