Chillpak Hollywood Hour 339

On this week’s show, your friends in podcasting begin with a brief exchange concerning Tom Cruise and Veterans Day, followed by a discussion of the publishing business and “novellas”. Then, a note from a loyal listener leads to more discussion about Vincent Price, before Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness launch into a discussion of German Expressionism, the impact it had on silent films, film noir, David Lynch and even the art work of … Dean, himself.

Then, the gents follow up on an email from a listener last week concerning digital piracy. This results in Dean and Phil listing and analyzing the top ten most pirated movies of the past year and whether any of their financial fortunes were actually harmed by this piracy.

Then, it’s the ten movie trailers that forever changed the way films were advertised and sold.

Finally, Phil wraps up with his take on the versatile and brilliant Stephen Merchant’s new series “Hello Ladies”.

Trust us, somehow, the entire show turns out to be a riot.

As ever … On YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #293

Happy Christmas, everybody!

This week’s show gets off to a flying start with a recap of the “Live Event of the Week” – the 28 hour marathon co-hosted by your friends in podcasting to ring in the end of the Mayan Calendar.

Dean discusses his road trip from hell.

Phil discusses catching up on some 2012 movies.

Dean and Phil revisit last’s week’s show all about the Top Films of All Time by looking at what directors had films mentioned most often on the lists submitted by guests of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

The show wraps up with a personal “Celebrity Death”, a wonderful character actor who was helping Dean and Phil in the development of their new film, The Lady Killers.

Speaking of The Lady Killers, please take the time to learn more about the film and how you can help (and PLEASE, spread the word!), by visiting here.

And if you’ve never seen Dean and Phil’s film The Truth is Out There . . . Why haven’t you? It’s available here.

Finally, we hope you will enjoy this holiday greeting from your friends in podcasting …
