Chillpak Hollywood Hour #514

Late night television comedy, some current television dramas, the death of Chuck Berry, a potential writer’s strike, Martin Scorsese’s next movie, Hugh Jackman’s next acting role, Alfred Hitchcock and much, much more … And don’t forget, if you are in the Los Angeles area on Sunday 26 March, you can attend the Official World Premiere of Dean and Phil’s new movie, THE LADY KILLERS!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #440

The show starts with two “Live Events of the Week” before the opening theme song even plays! Dean tells tales of hanging out in Melbourne with Lou Diamond Phillips and Peter Shinkoda, then Phil gives a history lesson on a bright light in the 1930′s progressive movement in L.A., as well as a re-opened and re-modeled SoCal cultural icon.

After the opening, your friends in podcasting discuss a “Lawsuit of the Week” where theatre actors are suing their own union and a Federal investigation into claims that women filmmakers are being discriminated against in Hollywood.

Then, movies and television shows get reviewed and discussed, including the documentary “Merchants of Doubt”, the current releases “Room” and “Spotlight”, the films of Fritz Lang, new television series “Quantico”, “Grandfathered” and “The Grinder”, and the new season of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”. After that, Dean and Phil iscuss an email from a loyal listener about how “good” television might be standing in the way of “great television” (and whether this might be true of movies as well). Then, it’s an absolute information dump as dozens of big-screen and small-screen adaptations, remakes, reboots and revivals are previewed and debated. “Men in Black”, “The Watchmen”, “Die Hard”, “Roots”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “Twin Peaks”, “Hart to Hart”, “Flatliners”, “Lethal Weapon”, “John Wick” and “The A-Team” are only some of the titles that will get discussed.

This one should be called YOUR Chillpak Hollywood 70 Minutes!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #434

Dean Haglund has a little too much reverb. Phil Leirness has had a little too much to drink. Together it all works to bring you a hilarious and informative installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

From the madness that was Force Friday to “Celebrity Deaths” remembrances of a self-help guru, a Disney icon and a master of horror, from your friends in podcasting continuing their appreciations for the Film Fatales list of female-directed movies everyone should see to the influence of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour when it comes to IFC’s “Documentary Now”, Bill Murray’s return to “Ghostbusters” and the shakeup at the Marvel Studios. All that plus one scrapped TV revival, Amazon Streaming makes a move to really challenge Netflix, and “The Daily Show” names new correspondents.

Meanwhile, “The X-Files” has wrapped principal photography on its revival. Assuming it’s successful with viewers, where will the franchise go from here? You won’t want to miss what Dean Haglund has to say about that!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #430

There are many questions to be asked (and hopefully answered) on this week’s show: How was Dean’s whirlwind trip to Vancouver to film the revival of “The X-Files”? Did that filming require his wearing a wig? Will he (and the other Lone Gunmen) return for more episodes? What to make of yet the latest theater shooting, and the life without parole sentencing of the Aurora, Colorado, shooter? How good is the new “Mission: Impossible” movie? How good OR bad is “Ant-Man”? Are superhero adaptations in general, and the Marvel universe specifically, still relevant?

All those questions, and many, many more are discussed.

So, naturally, the whole show begins with a discussion about … reincarnation?!

It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. So, enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #373

Comedy continues to be the theme foremost on the minds of your friends in pocasting. This week, Dean and Phil are proud to welcome as their guest Karen Forman, one half of the Funny Or Die duo Donna and Leslie, and co-author/co-performer of the hilarious new comedy LP, “The Big Tickle”.

And if you’re in the L.A. area, make sure to check out the fortnightly comedy show co-hosted by our very own Dean Haglund -Steven Benaquist’s Big & Tall Show!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #348

What other show covers such a range of topics as cognitive dissonance, psychogenic fugue states, memory, time travel, the Golden Globes, San Diego Comic-Con, California small claims court and the remains of ancient civilizations in the Amazon?

It’s just another hour in the office for Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #328

Please forgive the possibly rough audio mix this week … Your friends in podcasting recorded from their post-production office and they were hard at work all night and day completing day 19 of principal photography on The Lady Killers, the feature film Dean Haglund is executive producing and Phil Leirness is directing (from his own original screenplay).

On today’s show, Dean and Phil welcome two special guests, Art Director Rob Ulloa and his art deparment colleague, actress Stacie Rippy!

Join them for a rather hilarious conversation about what the art department does, about Disneyland, about acting, about Airstream trailers, about getting fired … It’s free-wheeling, occasionally insightful and always irreverent.

You know, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
