This is the 9th “Top Ten” show of this year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … Your friends in podcasting count down their lists of the Top Ten All-Time Most Overlooked Science Fiction Films!
These might not be the best, nor the most underrated. They are, for reasons that Dean and Phil attempt to discern, overlooked by modern audiences …
Another extra-long episode, full of skype-based “hiss”, but we promise to do better in year 11!
Riddles us this: What show discusses such a wide range of topics as “awards madness”, Steph Curry, ghost stories and rituals and traditions? The answer is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course! Awards season in Hollywood came to an end this weekend, but it ain’t really over, until your friends in podcasting have had the last word!
Welcome to our most Fellini-esque episode ever! After all YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour turns 8 1/2 years old with this week’s show and trust us when we say it’s outstanding.
Dean and Phil follow up on last week’s hilarious episode by discussing Halloween, Nazis and Celebrity Deaths. Dean continues his advice for women who want to pursue their dreams in the male-dominated field of stand-up comedy. Phil reviews a new film about legendary, Oscar-winning blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo and weighs in on the new seasons of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, “The Blacklist” and “Fargo”. Then one of the most amazing letters we’ve ever received inspires one of the most spectacular closing discussions your friends in podcasting have ever offered up.
Thanksgiving, Birthdays, live events and what they’re reading are first on the docket for your friends in podcasting to discuss.
Then it’s onto a free-for all analysis of sequels, remakes, Hunger Games, Leonardo DiCaprio, a Broadway adaptation and a few Oscar hopefuls.
Finally, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness remember an improv comedy great, a young leading man, an animation heiress, a screenwriting guru and a publishing titan.
Happy December! It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
From an historic gold rush town in rural British Columbia to the origins of our (3 dimensional) Universe, your friends in podcasting go way back into the past and look forward into the speculative future on this week’s show.
Like television? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness discuss the ending of “Breaking Bad” and the debuts of “The Blacklist” and “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”
Like movies? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean and Phil discuss Jude Law’s work in Steven Soderbergh’s Hitchcockian Side Effects, Ron Howard’s effort to bring Formula One to the big screen with Rush, the influence Sergio Leone is having on Phil’s own filmmaking efforts these days and what Phil has learned about the interesting journey Leone’s “Dollars” trilogy took to U.S. theatre screens. Oh, and also, Dean tears into the abysmal Man of Steel.
Like science fiction? Then, you might enjoy hearing Dean and Phil discuss Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep in print, on screen and even on stage! And they effusively reminisce a great deal about Alfonso Cuaron’s Chrildren of Men (and a little bit about his Prisoner of Azkaban) in anticipation of the release this week of Gravity.
Of course, if you just like good, insightful, irreverent and inspiring conversation, then you’ll definitely enjoy this brand new episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Happy Canada Day!
Phil Leirness is back with health advice for the young people and with corrections for Dean Haglund after listening to last week’s show …
Nothing less than an action-packed thrill ride, this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour features your friends in podcasting discussing more than a dozen movies, the Supreme Court’s recent rulings on DOMA and Proposition 8, the Jim Carrey Kick-Ass 2 controversy, Paula Deen’s racism vs. Alec Baldwin’s homophobia, and fairy tales!
The show begins with selections from a rather hilarious Skype conversation between Phil Leirness and March Hershon of Succotash.
Following the theme song, Dean Haglund is back, and tells of his whirlwind, speeding-ticket-filled road trip to Winnipeg and back.
Violence prevention is very much on the mind of Phil, as he participated in a gang violence “interruption” on Saturday night. He talks about that and the short film Flawless.
Mostly, though, movies are what your friends in podcasting really want to talk about, from the role of critics, to the resurrection of Harrison Ford, to the post-apocalypse bandwagon, to the lack of roles for women, to the work of Stanley Kubrick, to the latest installment of Star Trek.
All this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
