After an opening segment where Phil discusses John Wick: Chapter 2 with Chad Osuna of Fanboy Nation and “The Popcorn Podcast”, Dean joins the fun for a free-wheeling discussion of silent films, autism, Canadian animation, what actors should expect from directors, the Oscar nominations, female-driven films and more!
Most of this week’s show is comprised of the 5th Top Ten show of this, Year Ten of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. In it, Dean and Phil count down their Top Ten WORST films of 2016. First, however, your friends in podcasting celebrate the life and work of one of Phil’s all-time favorite character actors in “Celebrity Deaths” and answer an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU) about using CGI to create perfromances from actors who are no longer living (a la Peter Cushing in “Rogue One”). Brace yourselves for a master class in filmmaking and acting!
Your friends in podcasting begin this show withe some eloquent words on diversity by the dearly departed Misty Upham.
They then launch into discussing the movies they are excited to see before analyzing the merits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the head-scratching existence of Fury and the ground-breaking, breathtaking brilliance of Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance).
It’s then time to rant about the statute of limitations in the Stephen Collins sexual abuse case.
Finally, Dean and Phil remember Marcia Strassman and the “Sultan of Suave”, celebrating the life and artistry of Oscar de la Renta.
If you miss a little bit of today’s show, you’ll miss a lot!
Hear your friends in podcasting discuss: The Olympics, Lance Armstrong, David Lynch, Walt Disney, Phantom of the Paradise, Paul Williams, “Bones”, absurdism vs. surrealism, Placido Domingo vs. the most interesting man in the world, the Sight and Sound poll, Vertigo, Alfred Hitchcock, The Ghastly Love of Johnny X, Kevin McCarthy, The Queen of Versailles, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, The Dark Knight Rises, The Amazing Spider-Man, ParaNorman, Hope Springs, The Bourne Legacy, the banking industry and the economic recovery in Iceland.
All that, plus “what we’re reading” and the return of the “Chillpak Hollywood Wingnut of the Week”.

Last week, when Phil made a cleverly comedic call-back connection between McG (the auteur behind such cinematic classics as Charlie’s Angels, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and Terminator: Salvation) and McDonald’s (purveyor of meat and “other similar food products” according to their own internal memos), he had no idea he would be called upon to defend his “negativity” towards Mr. McG … Yet, called upon he was, and when tasked by loyal listeners of the show, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, talk about these things. That’s what we mean when we say that it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Other topics covered include: Dean’s new HBO show, Phil’s new short film, Dean’s new animated webisode series, Phil’s new documentary feature project, an opera production of A Turn of the Screw, Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Gnomeo and Juliet (in 3D), Rango, Unstoppable, Never Let Me Go, Source Code, and Dean Haglund’s audition advice for actors being “put on tape”.
