Chillpak Hollywood Hour #573

Year 12 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour gets off to a roaring start, with 12 bonus minutes in an episode mostly dedicated to movies …

As so many episodes of late have, this season begins with “Celebrity Deaths” as your friends in podcasting celebrate the career of filmmaker Michael Anderson and remember their friend George Baker of Modesto, California. Then, a few minutes are spent weighing in on HBO shows – namely “Westworld”, “Silicon Valley” and “The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling”. The Cannes Film Festival starts this week and Dean and Phil commemorate its opening by critiquing last year’s Palme D’Or winner The Square. This leads into a discussion of the recent Lady Macbeth, 1955′s Blackboard Jungle and Hitchcock’s 1966 spy thriller Torn Curtain. A letter from loyal listener Stephen D. Fowler (of the Smokin’ All Stars) sets the topics for the 2nd half of the show, where Dean and Phil weigh in on what’s next for several franchises: Star Wars, Star Trek, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (including a review of The Avengers: Infinity War) and The X-Files. Plus, they try to figure out if there is any future at all for big-screen westerns, comedies and musicals. The answer may just surprise you!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #571

Back on schedule, your friends in podcasting offer up a fun grab bag of audio goodness this week … Dean reports on “Ironfest” and discusses his future “X-Files” convention appearances. Lily Holleman reports live from a film festival in Miami where she is attending the screening of a movie in which she co-stars. Phil is in Los Angeles, of course, where he discusses the revival of the Los Angeles Breakfast Club, a truly bizarre cop film from the 1970′s, and a recent epic movie about a real-life explorer. All that plus Dean and Phil remember both a country music great and a beloved (diminutive) cinematic sidekick.

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 Holllywood Hour #466

It’s “Chillpak: New Orleans” as Dean checks in from the Big Easy and reveals details about the top secret performance he’s giving in the Bayou before his whirlwind visit to The Los Angeles Breakfast Club this week to perform “Dean Haglund: An Illustrated Tour of Broadway in DTLA”. Phil reviews a spectacular and important new play and ties its themes into a challenge faced by a high school student in New York Phil has been mentoring. A discussion about the art, craft and deceptive practices of movie trailers leads into an analysis of two quite buzzed about recent trailers and the promise of a film being released next month and one going into production soon. All that, plus Dean and Phil reveal what they are reading and a man who leaves behind one of the most significant legacies in the modern history of cinema is remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!
