Chillpak Hollywood Hour #540

Even though the Emmy Awards celebrating Television took place last night, your friends in podcasting spend the entire hour (and ten minutes) talking movies. First, they start by celebrating the life and career of the singular Harry Dean Stanton. Then, they discuss misogyny and sexual assault in the movie exhibition business. Finally, Dean and Phil tackle a wide range of cinematic endeavors, including two surrealist (absurdist?) classics by Luis Bunuel, a late classic western by Sam Peckinpah, an all-star war film from the 1970′s, the restored director’s cut of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and an Alfred Hitchcock comedy. Pass the popcorn – We’re talking movies!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #413

What do The Lone Gunmen, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Aleister Crowley, Scientology, Horror, Stan Freberg and dozens of classic female-driven films have in common? Why, they are all a part of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course!

Enjoy.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #401

Phil is finishing up two feature-length motion pictures. Dean appeared in two live shows. Together they are talking about those activities, answering emails from listeners like you, tackling the lack of diversity in the recently announced Academy Award nominations and taking on some of the worst films of the year.

And if they need ten percent more hour to get it all in, well who’s going to complain? It’s just six more minutes of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness changing the way you listen to the internet!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #397

Before taking off on their holiday travels, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are doing what they do best: Making sense of a (show business) world gone wild …

They weigh in on the cyber terrorist attack against Sony. They celebrate a milestone achieved by one of their favorite shows. They discuss live events starring the likes of Angela Lansbury and Jeff Goldblum. They dish on an animation price-fixing lawsuit, the decades-long Roman Polanski judicial drama and the idea of actors owning a copyright interest in their performances. They discuss casting news that has them hopeful and casting news that gives them pause. They champion three outstanding films from earlier this year that you probably missed that are available now on home video and they warn you against an award-hopeful Christmas Day opener that is without a doubt one of the worst films of the year. All that PLUS much more as they wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

All together now (singing): “We need a little Chillpak, right this very minute!”

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #375

How does a show that begins with a lengthy discussion of Phil’s hairstyles thru the years end up being so darn inspiring?

When it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, of course!

On this week’s show, Dean and Phil discuss The Paramount Ranch, westerns, Chaplin, Alexander Payne, the moon landing and history belonging to those that move and delight us.

Dean shares great advice for comedy writers.

Phil explains both the good and the bad in our move to BlogTalkRadio.

Then, your friends in podcasting remember a famous werewolf, a punk rock icon, the Grand Dame of Broadway, the preeminent bass player of his generation, the last “real man”, a war hero and Olympian, and a 21 year-old actress and filmmaker.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #250

This week’s show is both a yearly tradition AND a Chillpak Hollywood Hour first!

It’s our post-Oscar smackdown, where your friends in podcasting take on the Academy AND each other. Snarking and wagering, what could be more fun? And this year, the stakes have been raised!

Meanwhile, it’s the first time we’ve ever recorded a show where Dean and Phil were not in same locale. Dean’s still in Colorado. Yet, thanks to Skype, nothing could prevent the motion picture industry’s big night from turning into YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour’s 250th episode!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #187

Dean Haglund has done his holiday baking and is about to hit the road for snowy Winnipeg! Before he goes, he sits down with your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, to his a wide variety of topics, including: The texture of Canadian movies, The Roundabout Theatre in NYC, the lack of commitment on the part of many actors on television vs. the incredible commitment of several others, the Blue Valentine ratings controversy, the flop that is The Tourist, the delightful remake that is True Grit, and the likelihood that independent films will dominate all the year end awards including the Oscars.

Finally, Dean and Phil preview their upcoming three shows (one features a guest, one is a “Top Ten” show, and one is an annual treat), and ask you to visit the following websites pertaining to their feature documentary: The Truth Is Out There and Facebook.com/truthmovie.

Thanks!
