The show begins with selections from a rather hilarious Skype conversation between Phil Leirness and March Hershon of Succotash.
Following the theme song, Dean Haglund is back, and tells of his whirlwind, speeding-ticket-filled road trip to Winnipeg and back.
Violence prevention is very much on the mind of Phil, as he participated in a gang violence “interruption” on Saturday night. He talks about that and the short film Flawless.
Mostly, though, movies are what your friends in podcasting really want to talk about, from the role of critics, to the resurrection of Harrison Ford, to the post-apocalypse bandwagon, to the lack of roles for women, to the work of Stanley Kubrick, to the latest installment of Star Trek.
All this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour …
It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour’s annual Post-Oscar smackdown.
Hear Dean and Phil’s analysis and hilarious criticism of Hollywood’s big night, hear them reveal each other’s predictions on who would win the 24 Oscar categories, and hear the stakes of their wager on the outcome.
Year after year, it’s one of our most popular episodes.
The film critics have had their say …
The various industry guilds and unions have handed out their awards …
Now, it’s time for the best films of 2012 according to your friends in podcasting!
Get those pens, pads and/or Netflix queues handy!
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.
This week’s show is brought to by the letter “M” …
Mitt Romney, Marathons, The Mayan Calendar, The Book of Mormon, The Master, Movies, Monsanto and something called Melrose 2 all get discussed.
Free-wheeling, insightful and irreverent, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Three guests AND two guest co-hosts join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness this week to take on show business from all angles …
As Dean revealed on last week’s show, he will be acting in a new series. “Space Command” boasts a who’s who of sci-fi in its cast and is the brain child of acclaimed and prolific writer Marc Scott Zicree. Hear all about the project and Marc’s previous work (including various versions of “Star Trek” AND The Twilight Zone Companion), as he joins your friends in podcasting AND Combat Radio‘s Ethan Dettenmaier.
Then, just when you think this week’s show couldn’t get any more cool, the topic switches from behind the camera success to a stunning starlet, as Phil joins actor and author Mark Ryan to interview the luminous Cerina Vincent, star of such movies Cabin Fever, Not Another Teen Movie and the forthcoming MoniKa, as well as the co-author of the books How to Eat Like a Hot Chick and How to Love Like a Hot Chick. Trust us, Cerina is as refreshing a personality as you could hope to meet and the conversation is rather hilarious.
Finally, as if that weren’t enough, the subject turns to entertainment journalism with Robert Samo, who founded the site Fanboy Nation.
It’s a star-studded, all-hands on deck assault on your ears, hearts and funny-bones! It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, after all …
Dean Haglund has escaped from The Village and Phil Leirness has recovered enough from a nasty head cold that we are (finally) able to bring you this week’s episode, an installment that will leave you debating, “Did I just hear a great show, or the GREATEST show?!”
Topics include Dean’s travels to Wales and Ireland, Patrick McGoohan’s The Prisoner, publicity rights laws, vertical integration, The Ghastly Love of Johnny X, fuji film, Clint Eastwood’s empty chair, the RNC, the DNC, prohibition, Pink Martini and Disney’s California Adventure.
All that, PLUS what your friends in podcasting are reading, the films they’ve seen and several Live Events of the Week.
Dean previews his trip to Dublin before he and Phil take the time to remember the significant cultural contributions made by film critic Judith Crist, actor William Windom, composer Marvin Hamlisch, essayist David Rakoff, comic Phyllis Diller, director Mel Stuart, explorer Neil Armstrong and director Tony Scott.
Then, they discuss the news that actor Bob Hoskins will be retiring due to his battle with Parkinsons, before turning their attention to the “Lawsuit of the Week” (Oh, Martin Scorsese, what trouble are you in now?).
After that, your friends in podcasting are joined by Ethan Dettenmaier of Combat Radio to interview the great Richard Anderson. You might remember Mr. Anderson best as “Oscar Goldman” from “The Six Million Dollar Man” and “The Bionic Woman”. He regales us all with stories of working with Stanley Kubrick, Orson Welles, William Wyler, Spencer Tracy and Lee Majors. He describes the making of Forbidden Planet and the slow-motion “accident” that became one of the most iconic parts of sci-fi tv.
All that, this week, on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
And we hope you’ll take the time to watch this video outtake from the Richard Anderson interview.
