chatflix No Comments

with Claire Sullivan, Angus Brown and Brose Avard

Reality is tough, reality is hard, reality bites!

Claire Sullivan joins Brose and Angus to chat this 1994, post grunge, pre-internet, Ben Stiller directorial debut; Reality Bites.

Recruiting Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Jeneane Garofalo and Steve Zahn to illustrate the frustrations of youth and the perils of Generation X.

Episode 201 Four Weddings and a Funeral

chatflix No Comments

with Jess Perkins and Angus Brown (and Brose Avard)

Can you feel it in your fingers? Or feel it in your toes? Its time for a BRAND NEW episode of Chatflix and this time it’s Three Panelists and a Podcast when we look back to 1994 for Four Weddings And A Funeral with Brose, Angus and for the first time EVER, Comedian and Triple J presenter Jess Perkins. 

Before Notting Hill, or even Love Actually, Richard Curtis wrote this outrageously funny affair with a dashingly young Hugh Grant, the engaging (wink, wink) Andie McDowell and scene stealing Rowan Atkinson about a committed bachelor potentially discovering love over the course four weddings and, you guessed it, one funeral!

So if you really love podcasts… Come on and listen to our latest shooowww 

Come on and let it, 
Come on and let it, 
Come on and let it shoooowwww

Episode 200 Jaws

chatflix No Comments

with Jade Goodge, Stuart Wilson and Trevor Wood (and Brose Avard)

This week ChatFlix celebrates 200 Episodes! And we got the band back together; Jade Goodge, Stuart Wilson and Trevor Wood (and Brose Avard).

But which film would be worthy to celebrate such a milestone? (I know it’s written above this blurb, but come with me here…)

That’s right, JAWS! (The forbidden film)

For those of you that have been with us since the beginning, you’ll know that ChatFlix regular Jade was forbidden to watch Jaws. Well, to celebrate the 200th episode we made her watch it!

Steven Spielberg directs Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, Richard Dreyfus and Bruce (the shark) in this 1975 classic (and famous remake of the TV film Duel).

So slip on your floaties, slop yourself onto a boogie board and slap on some baby oil because it’s the Summer of ’75 and we’re hitting that beach!

chatflix No Comments

with Corrine Lawrence

In a NEW series of minis, Brose sits down with Supergirl cosplayer extraordinaire Corrine Lawrence to chat about a handful of favourite, formative, childhood flicks.

Well before superheroes dominated the box office, back in 1979 crime fighting had really gone to the dogs. More specifically, C.H.O.M.P.S.

In a NEW series of minis, Brose sits down with Supergirl cosplayer extraordinaire Corrine Lawrence to chat about a handful of favourite, formative, childhood flicks.

The Canine Home Protection System, C.H.O.M.P.S. is a robot dog created by Wesley Eure’s Brian Foster for Conrad Bain’s Ralp[h Norton. C.H.O.M.P.S. has super strength, x-ray vision and a doggo sense to detect crimes being committed, does he manage to prevent being kidnapped by a Mr Burns type, Jim Backus’ Mr Gibbs?

Did Hanna/Barbera’s only live action effort live up to our memory or were we left asking “who let the dogs out?”
