Chillpak Hollywood Hour #431

In the blog post on Facebook previewing this week’s show, your friends in podcasting promised to discuss if Australia is trying to kill Dean Haglund, all the things you should’t do on a road trip, and the unparalleled legacy of the biggest movie star of all time, Humphrey Bogart. They promised to explain why the funniest film from the comedy filmmaking team of Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker (“the makers of the original Airplane” – no, not the Wright Brothers) was also their least successful. They promised to tackle the essential spy films of all time and what those films have to say about the times in which they were made. All that plus the latest Tom Cruise movie news, Bill Murray returning to Ghostbusters, Christopher Guest returning to making mockumentaries, and the reports that Gene Wilder might come out of retirement. And for those whose interest runs more towards episodic television, Dean and Phil were planning for you, too, with a question for Dean about Australian shows, with Phil weighing in on “Wayward Pines” and the continued cultural significance of “The Prisoner”, with the latest news surrounding the Wachowskis’ “Sense8″, HBO’s “Westworld”, HBO’s “Deadwood”, HBO’s “Sesame Street” (yes, you read that right) and, of course, the revival of “The X-Files”.

Not only did your friends in podasting get to all of it, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness even managed to remember Julian Bond, discuss the spooky happenings on Mars and some legendary silent films. Dean and Phil, changing the way you listen to the internet, by giving til it hurts!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #286

Cataclysmic storms, divisive Presidential elections, erstwhile Italian Prime Ministers sentenced to prison, Disney making more Star Wars films, unnecessarily Americanized/Anglicized versions of compelling stories, the end of the Mayan Calendar, Dean Haglund action figures and a “Sherlock Holmes” television series that is more House than Holmes

On this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, your friends in podcasting attempt to make sense of a world gone wild.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #285

Is it safe to say that there’s something for everyone on this week’s show? Consider …

Your friends in podcasting discuss Dean’s trip to Fargo for ValleyCon and the Fargo Fantastic Film Festival as well as Phil’s producing and directing 2nd unit photography, pick-ups and re-shoots for two different films on the same day(!).

They discuss the forthcoming Million Muppet March, their choices of Halloween costumes, the latest on Allan Piper’s film Married and Counting and Paul Bunnell’s film The Ghastly Love of Johnny X.

They discuss the possibilities of the just announced S.H.I.E.L.D. television series and the disappointing news regarding a sequel to X-Men: First Class.

They discuss such movies as Cloud Atlas , Get the Gringo, Looper , The Apple Dumpling Gang and Ernest Goes to Camp!

All that, PLUS a “Wingnut of the Week” update on the fluoridation of Portland’s water supply and another “Lawsuit of the Week” involving actors and their former representation suing each other.

Maybe you’ll even get the chance to win the home edition of the Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

You never know.

It is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour after all!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #283

Is it all a German dream, or is it just the latest installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?

Whatever it is, your friends in podcasting will change the way you listen to the internet as they tackle such topics as quantum mechanics, Louis CK, Madonna, plastic surgery, dead actors and chamber music. And somehow, almost all of it happens while Dean and Phil talk about such movies as Cloud Atlas, Argo, John Carter, The Paperboy, Skyfall and their friend Alan Piper’s Married and Counting!

All that, plus the most awkward turn-of-phrase ever uttered on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
