Chillpak Hollywood Hour #540

Even though the Emmy Awards celebrating Television took place last night, your friends in podcasting spend the entire hour (and ten minutes) talking movies. First, they start by celebrating the life and career of the singular Harry Dean Stanton. Then, they discuss misogyny and sexual assault in the movie exhibition business. Finally, Dean and Phil tackle a wide range of cinematic endeavors, including two surrealist (absurdist?) classics by Luis Bunuel, a late classic western by Sam Peckinpah, an all-star war film from the 1970′s, the restored director’s cut of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and an Alfred Hitchcock comedy. Pass the popcorn – We’re talking movies!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #265

Energized and raring to go, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are all over the map and spanning the ages in this week’s installment, an episode that can best be summed up by two words: TIME TRAVEL.

You’ll see what we mean as Dean and Phil discuss Old Town Sacramento, Damanhur, Ray Bradbury, the Los Angeles Conservancy, Paper Moon, Boris Karloff, an elementary school graduation, Janet Klein and Her Parlor Boys, Prometheus and MORE!

Oh, and if you haven’t heard enough of your friend in podcasting, Phil Leirness, or if you just want to get turned onto another really cool podcast, we hope you’ll check out Getting Better Acquainted hosted by David Pickering. Phil was the guest on episode 60.

Finally, if you’re going to be in the Los Angeles area on June 23, we strongly encourage you to go see David Dean Bottrell Makes Love.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #167

Phil gets his geek on, discussing such Comic-Con panels as The Expendables, Cowboys and Aliens, The Other Guys, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, and Drive Angry (Shot in 3D).

Dean answers questions about that large scar on his forehead, about the seminars the FBI conducts with screenwriters, and about why he says, “Huzzah!”

Dean and Phil analyze and debate why cable television has Emmy Award advantages over network television, whether The Secret Supper by Javier Sierra is a good book, and whether the paintings of Da Vinci qualify as art or as propaganda. Taking on Da Vinci? Who, but your friends in podcasting would dare do that?!!
Finally, several big movies are discussed: SALT, Inception, Cyrus, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Restrepo.

It’s your Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
