WOO-HOO!

...want to know more…? 

It’s Klendathu or bust! And BROSE has assembled his own team of Roughnecks when Stu, Caity and Angus chat themselves into the first wave of attack until the cavalry arrives in the form of James, Looch, Trev, Danielle and Jarrod!

When rogue military operatives seize control of Washington DC’s International Airport only the same guy in the wrong place at the wrong time can save the day…  ..again! 

Brose, Shaun, Jarrod and with assistance from Looch, will need a little more than 58 Minutes to chat about great action flicks, good movie sequels, horrible car battery commercials, Pirate movie directors and all the other ingredients that make up the second instalment of the Die Hard franchise.

All outgoing flights have been delayed, incoming flights are circling waiting to land and you have a fully charged phone (or whatever you use to listen to podcasts). So, while John McClane Dies Harder than he did in 1988 (without ever actually dying, plug us into your ears and listen to our latest episode TODAY!

This week Brose has a chat with Samuel Cairnduff, Director of Marketing and Communications with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.

A fun conversation about how the TSO has dealt with the pandemic, how live film score concerts are produced and what Sam has been watching during Hobart's brief lockdown.

Also,  for Part One of the ChatFlix Podcast Festival we drop into Theatre of the World from the guys from Man Bites God. Theatre of the World is a short series of scripted comedy and songs, we hope you enjoy the clip as much as we do.

AND don't forget to hit up @chatflixpodcast on Facebook, Twitter or IG to help us Pick the Trilogy. We are asking our listeners to suggest trilogies that are missing from our library so that we can then vote on which trilogy we review soon on ChatFlix.

Nov 12, 2020

Is it true that Tintin was based on the intellect and boyish charm of Stuart? That Haddock is a thinly veiled cartoon of Brose? And are the Thompson Twins merely the Stephen Twins? No, not at all. That's ridiculous and such speculation has no place in the blurb for this episode!

What IS this week's film for discussion? If you haven't guessed (or read it in iTunes when you clicked on the episode) maybe you shouldn't listen to ChatFlix?

It is The Adventures of Tintin!! Stephen Spielberg (the Stephen triplets?) and Peter Jackson's combined effort to adapt Tintin and make an Indiana Jones movie without Indiana Jones.

Download now to find out how we think the movie panned out.

Nov 11, 2020

We all go a little mad sometimes and some of us are crazy for the flick about a secretary on the run, who checks into a remote motel run by a young man under the control of his overbearing mother. ChatFlix has finally gone Psycho (1960). 

Folling Dial M For Murder (Episode 126) and Rear Window (Episode 154), Alfred Hitchcock would light up cinemas once again with a whole other kind of movie going experience and further cement his role in popular culture.

Join Danielle as she checks into The Brose Motel and meets its shy proprietor Stu but where exactly is James in all this?

Don't give away the ending - it's the only one we have! Check in, get comfortable and enjoy a shower with our latest episode TODAY!

Oct 29, 2020

This week we chat about the Movie that Started it All! Well, Paul Hogan’s issues with the Australian Tax Office anyway! Crocodile Dundee is the film that gave us the iconic character Mick J Dundee and 3 unnecessary sequels.

A whole generation of Aussies grew up knowing him as the cheeky larrikin TV comedian, Hoges. The world would help make him the star of what his still Australia’s highest grossing film here in Oz.

With Brose Avard as your guide and Jarrod Welsh wearing the Crocodile tooth hat, I guess that means Matt O’Neil will be bending down into the billabong wearing a tight, black one piece?

Download now to find out how we find the original Crocodile Dundee 34 years later.

In the 1970s Bruce Lee and Raymond Chow set out to make the film that would change martial arts films forever: Enter the Dragon.

Its affect on pop culture is immeasurable. From Bruce Lee rip offs to Blacksploitation Kung Fu films to video games to movies based on those video games and beyond. Everything can be traced back to one film: Enter the Dragon.

This week Brose sits down with Danielle Chau, Adam Thomas and Harry Wall to talk about Bruce Lee's greatest film: They Still Call Me Bruce. No, sorry, Enter the Dragon!

Why are there not many
podcasts about rainbows? 

Breaking the bounds of their television confinement and bursting onto the BIG SCREEN come the The Muppets in the 1979 movie, aptly titled The Muppet Movie.

This week the ChatFlix team head into darkest Romania circa 1943 to try and control The Keep careful not to awake a horrible demon that is housed within.

Michael Mann's 1983 film has more mystery and intrigue surrounding its production and release than the actual plot! Even the Tangerine Dream sound track is mired in controversy...

Early performances from Scott Glenn, Ian McKellen, Gabriel Byrne, Alberta Watson and a stand out Jurgen Prochnow battle against the demon and the production.
