This week Brose, Danielle and Adam spend all of our college money on a trip to Okinawa with Mr Miyagi!

We are chatting Karate Kid Part II; the film where Ralph Macchio somehow looks younger and Pat Morita hasn't aged a year.

Master and pupil head to Miyagi's home town to confront his life long nemesis, Sato, farewell Miyagi's father and for Daniel Larusso to do more rock n roll dancing than fighting.

Download this week's episode to see how we feel the film as held up over the last 35 years and revel in the Glory of Love!

Jan 28, 2021

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to listen to this week's episode: Mission Impossible.

Brose has assembled a crack team, Danielle and James, to revisit this tv show adaptation from 1996.

Brian De Palma directs a still young looking Tom Cruise (actually looks young, not the "he looks young for someone almost 60" young), with Emmanualle Beart, Jean Reno, Vanessa Redgrave and Ving Rhames.

How does the film hold up? There is only one way to find out!

Jan 21, 2021

Life is good, but it could be better...

Well, it’s just got a little better because we’re unpacking our initial thoughts and feelings on Patty Jenkins’ 2020 cinematic (in most regions) outing; Wonder Woman 1984

 ⚠️ SPOILERS AHEAD ⚠️

At the peak of the world’s opulence an ancient artifact will grant everyone’s desires leading the world down a path of destruction that only Wonder Woman can save us from.. or can she?

Decked out in his best parachute pants, Brose invites comic-book tragics, Jazz and Looch as well as Wonder Woman cosplayer extraordinaire, Hannah to strip away all the murmurs, rumours and here-say for a ⚠️ SPOILER ⚠️ laden chat about Gal Gadot’s Diana Prince, Kristin Wiig’s Cheetah, Pedro Pascal’s Max Lord and get to the TRUTH of WW84

Welcome to the pleasuredome!

Plug in your headphones, grab your favourite rock n rolla cola flavour because we’re 1984 bound or bust.

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).

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

This week Brose has a chat with another colleague from his days at The Project; audio engineer and camera operator Craig Pringle.

Beat your chest and let out almighty YELL!! We’re chatting the immortal legend, as only Disney can imagine; Tarzan (1999).

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 Brose catches up with former Managing Editor of The Project, artist and musician Tom Whitty.

Oct 22, 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!

Check out more of guest Harry Wall's film reviews:
