Chillpak Hollywood Hour #403

A day late, but packed full of the irreverent podcasty goodness you’ve come to expect from your friends in podcasting, today’s free-wheeling show addresses the Super Bowl, its halftime show, the death of a legendary poet and a baseball icon, a controversy over the Hollywood sign, an hilarious stand-up performance by friend-of-the-show Pete Handelman, the rumors surrounding an Indiana Jones reboot, the latest on “The X-Files” reboot, which should be called a “sequel series”, an “Alphaville” remake and there’s the latest news pertaining to Dean and Phil’s film The Lady Killers and the forthcoming Sci-Fest. All that plus tips of the cap to Lily Holleman for her turn on “Shameless” and to Keira Knightley for her continued artistic growth.

And don’t kid yourself, Dean and Phil might joke about changing the name of the show to Chillpak Danger Hour or Chillpak Idiot Hour, but it is most definitely YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … Wherever good podcasts are found!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #402

How great a year in film was 2014? So great that neither Dean nor Phil managed to find room on their Top Ten Lists for the likes of such highly recommended features as Selma, Inherent Vice, The Babadook, CitizenFour or Calvary.

What DID make their lists? Listen to the episode (all 72 minutes of it!) and find out!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #120

Part three of our three-part special all about acting focuses on Dean and Phil’s favorite living male actors. Next week, Dean and Phil will be podcasting from DragonCon (perhaps in front of a live audience!) and you won’t want to miss that. Still, if you like acting, actors, movies, or just plain enjoy listening to good conversation, you won’t want to miss this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #119

This week’s show is all about the ladies! In part two of our three-part special all about acting, Dean and Phil discuss their favorite female perfomers of all time, both living and dead. A wide range of beautiful, brilliant, strong, fearless women from around the globe get discussed. If you like acting, actors, movies, women, or just plain enjoy listening to good conversation, you won’t want to miss this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #118

What do Charles Chaplin, James Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Paul Newman and Orson Welles all have in common? Well, they’re all dead, of course, AND they all live on as part of Dean and Phil’s countdown of their all-time favorite actors who are no long with us. It’s part one of a three part special edition of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour that focuses on acting and actors. Keep that Netflix queue handy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #114

Dean and Phil spent two weeks looking at what they consider to be the best films of the twentieth century. Because they don’t like to deal strictly in the positive, they will spend this week cleansing their palates of all that praise by revealing their lists of the all-time worst films! Dean opts for a traditional “count-down” of ten truly horrendous films. Phil lacks Dean’s ability to describe a film you’ve never heard of and make that description both interesting and hilarious, so he instead breaks his discussion down into different categories … For example: What is the worst sequel to a great film? What is the worst remake? What is the worst Oscar-winner for Best Picture? The answers to these questions and so many more on this week’s installment of YOUR Chilpak Hollywood Hour!

P.S. We’re aware that Dean has an annoying habit this week of speaking away from the microphone, but stick with it, the show is a fun one!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #111

Throughout its history Hollywood has always loved a good sequel and we at Chillpak Hollywood Hour are no exception. That’s why this week’s show is Part 2 of our look at the All Time Best Films of the past century! This time, we look at the years from 1960 through 1999 …

Such iconic performers as Peter O’Toole, Jack Nicholson, Harrison Ford and Clint Eastwood will get mentioned, and such giants of cinema as Stanley Kubrick, Federico Fellini, Robert Altman and Woody Allen will get discussed. Listen to find out if YOUR favorites made our list. And keep pencil and paper handy to write down OUR favorites to add to your Netflix queue!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #110

At the end of last week’s show, Dean and Phil promised a theme show this week focusing on the greatest heroes and villains ever to grace the silver and small screens. Unfortunately, technical difficulties are preventing that show from coming your way. The good news is that we have a very cool theme show for you anyway, as Dean and Phil reveal their Top Films of All Time! This particular hour focuses on the years 1920 through 1959.

The even better news? We’re making it available for your listening enjoyment three days early!

Why? Because we love you.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #103

Chris Mancini is a comedian, a filmmaker and a raconteur whose book

    Pacify Me: A Handbook for the Freaked-Out New Dad

has just been published and he’s our guest on this week’s show. Following Dean’s hilarious, insightful, inspiring conversation with Chris, Phil joins the party with a look at the start of the summer movie season (off with a bang following the huge opening by the aggressively mediocre X-Men Origins: Wolverine), calling attention to several small, independent and/or foreign films that may serve as satisfying “counter-programming” to all the mindless mayhem being dished up by the studios.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #100

Why is Willard Scott kissing our asses this week? Because we just turned 100, baby! Dean and Phil celebrate this milestone with a special show where they take you on a tour of their DVD collections! Many intimate details are revealed: Such as what titles are “rainy day” favorites, what selections are excellent to have on in the background while doing work, which ones instruct and inspire them, which ones cost the most (!), and which DVD’s are kept unopened and unwatched (Dean and Phil discuss the joy of having such “untouched” titles in their collections). Dean’s collection reveals a diversity bordering on the disturbing. Phil’s collection reveals him to have a very strong nerd component to his makeup! Who knew?!

Join us in singing “Happy Birthday” to ourselves on this week’s Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
