Chillpak Hollywood Hour #521

Year 11 begins with … What else? … a “Celebrity Death”, as Dean and Phil remember the versatile, Oscar-winning filmmaker Jonathan Demme. Your friends in podcasting then re-visit last week’s 10th Anniversary Episode and share their thoughts about what they got wrong during the years, what surprised them, a fantastic article about the show and birthday greetings to a past guest. Then, it’s on to the work at hand, namely trying to make sense of the wild, wild, week that was …

The Royal Family, “Star Wars Day”, Cinco de Mayo, current attacks on the First Amendment and the anniversary of the birth of Orson Welles are just some of the topics dissected, analyzed, joked about and argued over! All that, PLUS, the new Writers Guild of America deal AND the future of cinema!

That’s a lot to cover, but if you’ve been following YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour these past ten years, it’s what you’ve come to expect!

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 #395

Get the popcorn ready … This week’s show is all about the movies – past, present and future!

Join Dean and Phil as they discuss both Ridley Scott AND Harrison Ford’s participation in the soon-to-be-filming Blade Runner sequel, as they remember a prolific author, an international comedy icon and one of the greatest Hollywood executives of all time, as they analyze the first kudos given out during Hollywood’s long award season, as they praise or pan 5 current releases (Interstellar, Cake, Nightcrawler, Black or White, Wild), and as they finally get down to the business of Blue is the Warmest Color (because so many of YOU wanted them to!).

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #389

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.
