Chillpak Hollywood Hour #515

From a secret location “somewhere in America” (which is actually the offices of the Los Angeles Breakfast Club Foundation), Dean and Phil connect via Skype to discuss the World Premiere of their new film The Lady Killers, a documentary about the history of the disabled on screen, a fragile tone poem of an independent film, a horror mash-up about the descendants of Mina and Jonathan Harker, a franchise tent pole about a gigantic monkey and a “live-action” (not really) adaptation of a Broadway musical adaptation of an animated musical adaptation of a French fairy tale, as well and the death of Chuck Barris. All in all, it’s an hour in which your friends in podcasting discuss not only movies and television and celebrities, but the differently abled, diversity, reality shows, the importance of embracing discomfort, and so many other nourishing, inspiring and even hilarious concepts and topics. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #453

While your friends in podcasting were away during the past two weeks of pre-recorded shows, much has happened. Yet, before Dean and Phil “Point the compass of your brain to a journey on the map of the entire infinite”, Phil pulls out his soapbox to address a controversy surrounding the young actress (and U.N. Goodwill Ambassador) Emma Watson. Then, chameleon David Bowie, actor Alan Rickman, cinematographer Haskell Wexler, the “tall man” from the Phantasm movies and the man who changed the politics of Hollywood’s Awards Season are all remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Speaking of Awards Season, Dean and Phil have news and views on the Golden Globes, the Oscars the Directors Guild nominations and more! The Revenant, Beasts of No Nation, Son of Saul, Brooklyn, Amy and The Look of Silence all get discussed. All that, plus Phil has good news for fans saddened by the revelation of the fact that the first episode of The X-Files revival is … not good, Dean weighs in with his thoughts on Sean Penn going face-to-face with notorious drug kingpin “El Chapo”, he and Phil share what they’re reading, and Dean wraps things up with an update on his oft-delayed, much-anticipated graphic novel. It’s a lot to cover in one hour, but not too much when it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #219

Your friends in podcasting try to make sense of what’s going on in the world, from the massacre in Norway to the bullet train disaster in China, from a brutal assault at Dodger Stadium to the death of Amy Winehouse … Dean also tries to make sense of San Diego’s Comic-Con, while Phil tries to make sense of Dolly Parton’s enormous appeal. Phil remembers a Broadway legend, Dean and Phil discuss whether we’re seeing the beginning of the end of Rupert Murdoch, and Phil weighs in on all eight “Harry Potter” films, including Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Finally, you can now own The Truth Is Out There (iF you live in the USA, the UK or the EU). Both a single disc and a 2-disc collectors edition are now available (and a Blu-Ray edition is coming soon). Visit HERE for all the details. Thanks!
