Chillpak Hollywood Hour #437

At an hour and six minutes, this week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour offers you 10% more hour!

And even with all that time, your friends in podcasting didn’t get to everything they hoped to discuss!

What do Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness talk about on this show? You know, the usual … Lawsuits about the “Happy Birthday” song and Volkswagen diesel automobiles, poisonous snakes, “super moon” lunar eclipses, movies like Everest, Welcome to Me and Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, television like “The Knick”, “Mad Men”, “Documentary Now!”, and “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp”. They discuss the deepening cultural impact of Stephen Colbert as well as David Letterman’s forthcoming return to television. They continue to watch the “recent woman-directed movies everyone should see” and they continue naming the names of current character actors whose work they find exceptional.

Enjoy, and tell a friend about YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, won’t you?

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 #400

After several weeks apart, your friends in podcasting usually hit the ground running and this week is no exception as they look back to what was learned following the Sony hack and the release of The Interview, as they discuss the massacre at Charlie Hebdo, as they remember a great actor, a great voice, two great musicians and a comedy genius as they preview two Live Events starring Dean Haglund, as they weigh in on “Star Trek 3″ directing news, as they analyze the Golden Globes, as they theorize what went wrong with Chris Carter’s “The After”, and as they appreciate current female-driven television sci-fi …

Whew! Is that too much for one hour? Not when it is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #379

Your friends in podcasting were stood up this week! A guest who was supposed to join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness in discussion of both international filmmaking AND shooting westerns was a no-show! Not to worry as we still have plenty of show to go around!

Paramount Ranch is explored. A game of Capture the Flag is played. Silent Films are enjoyed. Guardians of the Galaxy is analyzed. The futures of “Fargo” and “True Detective” are debated. And finally a Vulcan Princess, a Tony-winning femme fatale and an Oscar-winning stand-up comedian are remembered.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #372

Celebrity deaths, two great television series, 3 great sci-fi movies currently in theaters and part 2 of Dean and Phil’s conversation with comedy guru Steve Kaplan.

It’s a jam-packed Chillpak Hollywood Hour, with three minutes MORE “hour”!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #218

This week’s installment starts out like a Michael Bay film (CARMAGEDDON!) and quickly becomes a legal thriller thanks to a VERY intriguing adventure recounted by Phil. Dean tells of his weekend travels (both recent past and near future) and explains to Phil the difference between Veterans and veterinarians before he and Phil share once again the strange, sad tale of the Chillpak, this show’s former sponsor …

Then, it’s all about the movies as your friends in podcasting count down the Top 14 summer box office hits, analyzing their quality and what their success or failure says about the industry (and the culture at large).

You know it’s a strange, wonderful show when PHIL cites “Robot Chicken” AND compares the DC and Marvel universes!

And for those of you in Southern California, don’t miss the cinematic event of the year! Okay, of the week … It the Los Angeles Premiere of THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE! There’s two nights to choose from: Wednesday and Thursday of THIS week. Full event details and tickets are available: HERE.
