Buckle up! Chatflix is Fast and the topic this week is Furious. The Fast and the Furious to be exact. Put 3 nerds in a room and try and keep up, NOS optional.
Film nerd Brose is joined by regular nerd Jarrod and off mic ChatFlix Alum AND (self confessed) car nerd Tim Lewis!
Chatting the first flick in one of cinemas BIGGEST franchises like the MCU and Star Wars before it. It’s a tale as old as time, it’s the little race car engine that could!l starring a charismatic Vin Diesel, tough-as-nails Michelle Rodriguez, cute as a button Jordana Brewster and a present Paul Walker.
ChatFlix presents the first ChatFlix Watch Along!
Famous for being known as the very worst film in the franchise, we advise that if you ARE going to watch it, watch along with Chatflix!
Brose and James protect you as they chat while watching Police Academy: Mission to Moscow to serve as an alternative commentary track.
A reduced cast of Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook, George Gaynes, David Graf and G.W. Bailey reunite with newcomer Charlie Schlatter and head to Russia for this giant mister. Even support from Christopher Lee, Claire Forlani and Ron Pearlman make little difference to this Lada of a car crash.
This week Brose, Stu, James and guest Stephen Rowley don their brown hats and brown leather jackets and light brown pants (so much brown Dr Jones!) and explore the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!
Is it an exciting Kingdom with great stunts, witty dialogue and fun times? Or is it an interminable Kingdumb with a mutt of a plot, bad script and bizarre performances? I think you already know!
Regardless of the quality of the film, this week's episode is a lot of fun and you should listen to the pain and humour involved in discussing this much maligned film.
Brose and James join forces to chat the final Police Academy film ever made! What...? There's one more after this? Why?
Brose and James join forces to chat the penultimate Police Academy film ever made; City Under Siege.
Much like Assignment Miami Beach, a trimmer more streamlined cast go head to head with a mysterious villain. Bubba Smith, Marion Ramsay, Leslie Easterbrook, Michael Winslow, Matt McCoy and David Graf return to represent George Gaynes' Lassard with the contstant interference of G.W. Bailey and Lance Kinsey's Harris and Proctor! Bruce Mahler returns as Fackler (why?!?!) and Kenneth Mars pops up as the mayor!
Sit back and enjoy the last watchable Police Academy film ever made!
Hail to the King Baby!
Before you see Jon Favreau’s remake of The Lion King listen to our take on the 1994 original and remember what makes Disney the true King of animated features!
Brose just can’t wait to be king, Kathryn is a little Hukana Mutata about it all (roughly translated it means No Worries ((for the rest of your days)) and Gabby really can feel the love... tonight...
Pull up a space on Pride Rock and listen along, its the other circle of life that Mufasa isn’t telling you about!
Chatflix pack their bags and head to Europe as they get Far From Home with Spider-Man’s LATEST cinematic outing.
Brose will be our tour guide, joined by two web slinging panelists; Adam Thomas and Spidey-tragic Jarrod to chat Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Find out what we thought of Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L Jackson, Marisa Tomei, Jon Favreau and Zendaya in the latest Marvel Films Flick. This is SPOILER filled, so if you haven't seen Far From Home, stay Far From ChatFlix until you have!
In Part Five of Seven, Brose and James tackle a trip to Florida with Police Academy 5 Assignment Miami Beach!
The one film in the series where George Gaynes gets to star, along side Matt McCoy as his nephew replacing Steve Guttengberg.
A refined list of Academy graduates makes for a slicker film too; Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow, David Graf, Marion Ramsay and Leslie Easterbrook fill out Lassard's team with GW Bailey and Lance Kinsey along attesting to spoil the occasion.
Rene Auberjonois is great as the villian, revelling in all the slapstick buffoonery!
This week Brose slips on his red ticked Nikes, Matt is decked out in double denim and Jarrod explores the Power of Love. Together they’ll get the DeLorean up to 88 miles per hour and head..
Back to the Future!
This week is a fun discussion about some, perhaps, over looked details and how this film effected them and their views on it now.
Was Michael J Fox a better choice than Eric Stoltz? Could anyone be better than Christopher Lloyd? Where would we go if we could travel anywhere in time?
Travel back to 1985 will us (you won’t even need a time machine) to discuss what may well be a perfect flick.
As mentioned previously this film is the gold standard for Brose... will his heart be broken? Will James enjoy it? Which of the Academy Graduates return and who is left behind? Will we see Steve 'the Cute' Guttenberg, Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow, David Graf, Leslie Easterbrook, Marion Ramsay? And how, exactly, does Sharon Stone fit? Find out this week on ChatFlix!
This week Brose donned his cowboy hat and has written Andy on the bottom of his boots to be joined by Jarrod, Sophie and Anthony to chat Toy Story 4! Find out whether the film matches the buzz as we have a (Bo) peep at this new release! Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are joined by a cast bigger the Avengers: Endgame; Annie Potts, Key and Peele, Christina Hendricks, Keanu Reeves, Tony Hale, Mel Brooks, Carol Burnett, Don Rickles, Carl Reiner, etc etc (get the picture?)
This week Brose and James follow up Police Academy 2 with... you got it! Police Academy 3: Back in Training! Join us as we chat a new rag tag bunch of misfits join the Academy to be trained by the original rag tag bunch of misfits! We see the return of Steve Guttenberg, Bubba Smith, Michael Winslow, Marion Ramsay, George Gaynes, David Graf, Leslie Easterbrook, Lance Kinsey and for no apparent reason, Bruce Mahler as Fackler...
This week 'Flix gets awesome! Brose is joined by Kathryn Tohill and Lego Masters Australia's Maddy and Jimmy! We chat about their life and love with Lego and, of course, The Lego Movie!
We break down the fine work of Lord and Miller, Chris Pratt, Will Farrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, Nick Offerman and Morgan Freeman! We also nominate our Lego Movie Spirit Character!
Brose and James are trained and ready for their first assignment! They tackle (berry) the second instalment in the Police Academy series Police Academy: Their First Assignment. How has their esteem for Steve Guttenberg changed since the first film? How much screen time will Bubba Smith, Marion Ramsay, Colleen Camp and Julie Brown actually get? What new sound effects will Michale Winslow introduce? Will David Graf shoot something out of a tree and why is Bruce Mahler even in this film? With Art Metrano replacing GW Bailey, the introduction of Lance Kinsey as Proctor and Howard Hesseman appears as George Gaynes' Lassard's brother!
Here come the Men In Chat! Brose is joined by galaxy defenders Jarrod and Looch. Donning black Ray Bans and with their reverse neutraliser they WILL make you remember just how fun this late 90s Barry Sonnenfeld flick is. Starring a perfectly appropriate Tommy Lee Jones and some kid from TV that people call the Fresh Prince! Oh that’s right it’s WILL SMITH! So forget that Roswell crap, show love to the black suit, because this week we’re doing Men In Black.
This week Brose and James report for basic training as they discuss the first of 7 Police Academy films! Steve Guttenberg, Michael Winslow, Bubba Smith, Marion Ramsey, George Gaynes, Kim Catrall, GW Bailey and David Graf all assemble for the ChatFlix treatment! Join us each week to see how this comedy series holds up (NB. We are not looking forward to Mission to Moscow!)
Are you troubled by strange noises in the middle of the night? Do you experience feelings of dread in your basement or attic? Have you or your family ever seen a spook, spectre or ghost? When it’s time to chat Ghost Busters ..Who you gunna call? Don’t call anyone just download our latest podcast. Brose crosses the streams with regular Matt ONeil, comic book artist Tristan Jones and for the first time Emma Beddows to get the full skinny on the ghost removal service provided by Bill Murray, Dan Akyroyd and Harold Ramis in the Ivan Reitman Fantasy Comedy.
Brose and Stu sit down to chat about the creepy Patrick Wilson and disturbing Ellen Page starring film Hard Candy. An awkward, intense, enclosed space thriller from 2005 that keeps you on the edge of the seat you've been tied to.
Brose and Stu are locked up in their Panic Room to chat... well... Panic Room! David Fincher's enclosed space thriller holds the likes of Jodie Foster, Kristen Stewart and Forest Whitaker.
This week Brose is joined by three very non-Mean Girls; Emily, Kathryn and Corrine! We chat about how fetch Mean Girls is 15 years later, whether a full forearm cast is necessary for carpal tunnel and the necessity to look both ways in a school bus zone. Who would have predicted Rachel McAdams would still be as popular as Regina George, Lindsay Lohan would somewhat disappear like Cady Heron and that Tina Fey is still helping create strong female personalities? I have to say, things will be sufficiently awkward... like seeing a dog walking on its hind legs.
As a companion episode to Dial M for Murder, Brose and Stu are chatting Enclosed Space Thrillers kicking things off with Cube!
Dust off the landline and call up our latest feature episode - Dial M for Murder. It’s been years since Brose even used a rotary phone, he misses M but instead rings P for panelists and Stu, Kathryn James answer the call.
The gang chat the almost perfect murder and answer age old questions such as who would even want to murder Grace Kelly? Tony Milland that’s who! But not before Rob Cummings and John Williams can stop the grumpy ol bugger.
Stay on the line as we chat our first (!!!) Hitchcock flick and his last movie for WB, even if your parents are yelling at you to get off the phone
To wrap up 7 weeks of Billy Wilder wildness, Brose and James chat about the Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, the movie... and the life.
This week ChatFlix goes to Hell!!!
Well, Hellboy... Brose, Jarrod, Looch and AllStar Comics' Mitch Davies chat the OG (Originial Guillermo) HellBoy.
Guillermo Del Toro's 2004 adaptation of Big Red bursts into your podcast stream as the new film flames into the cinema! How does Ron Perlman's performance hold up? Has Doug Jones always been capable of incredible physical performances? Has John Hurt always been an old man? Does anyone remember who Rupert Evans is? And how great is Selma Blair in everything?!? Bump back with us as we find out this week on ChatFlix!
