Halloween is only eight weeks away, so your friends in podcasting thought it was the perfect time to reveal their Top Ten All-Time Horror Films! Such classics as the 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers, its 1978 remake, John Carpenter’s The Thing, The Devil’s Backbone from director Guillermo Del Toro, Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein and Cabin in the Woods all get discussed as “honorable mentions”. What films actually made Dean an Phil’s respective lists? Listen to find out! And keep those Netflix queues handy!
As you know, each year, your friends in podcasting celebrate what they think were the best films of the previous year. Well, this year, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness welcome special guest, film critic and Los Angeles Film Critics Association member Luke Y. Thompson to help them as they discuss the best films AND the worst films of 2015!
Best and worst in one show?! Why, that sounds like two shows!
And it almost is. At almost 1 hour and 50 minutes, this is our longest show ever (if you don’t count the 28 hour live “podcastathon” Dean and Phil did to ring in the end of the Mayan Calendar). So, get those Netflix queues handy, power up with the caffeinated beverage of your choice and let’s begin …
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!
It’s the first episode of 2013 and since it’s early January, where would your friends in podcasting be but poolside atop downtown Los Angeles?!
So, grab the sunscreen and join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness as they discuss fine art, popular music, television, movies and celebrity deaths!
From record setting box office by a film from France, to precedent-setting success by a VOD release, from the most popular filming locations in L.A. to the return of 1980′s action heroes, from the smash hit album “21″ by Adele, to the death of one of the most popular singers of the 1950′s, this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour has all the news, views and reviews you’ve come to expect and enjoy.
Happy 2013, everybody! It promises to be our best year yet!
It’s an annual Chillpak Hollywood Hour event as your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness, offer up their respective top ten lists of the best films of the previous year.
It’s also our longest show ever – YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour with 25% more hour!
Thirteen months in the making, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness count down their Top Ten Films of 2010. Every genre from foreign to documentary, from action to comedy, from independent to studio blockbuster, is represented. It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!
Ten years in the making, this episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is the last show of the year, the last show of the decade! And appropriately, Dean and Phil use the occasion to count down their Top Films of the past ten years. The countdown began over on their MySpace Blog where you can read their #’s 20 through 11 selections. Did your favorite film make their list? Did your LEAST favorite film make their list? Perhaps, you’ll discover a gem you’ve never before heard of, OR remember a film that somehow slipped away before you had the chance to view it. Enjoy! And from all of us here at Chillpak Hollywood Hour, have a safe and sane holiday season!
Phil just got back from rubbing elbows with the D.C. social set. Dean stayed in town and hit a Hollywood party and hit it hard based on the stories he shares (Fran Drescher? Poop? Three bottles of champagne?). In addition to comparing notes on their holiday hijinx, Dean and Phil discuss the many films they’ve seen during the past two weeks. Phil saw several foreign language films, including a couple of fantastic ones you won’t want to miss. Dean reveals he saw The Spirit. This makes Phil very angry. Truth be told, though, from the Screen Actors Guild to Proposition 8, from people not knowing history to Dean’s viewing habits, Phil really comes out swinging … The boys are back and 2009 can finally begin!
Dean’s back from Scotland! Phil and Dean catch up on summer blockbusters and discuss the obscure gems that slipped under the radar. Phil admits to being an a**hole, although he really isn’t. We love you, Phil.
