Chillpak Hollywood Hour #570

Delayed by 36 hours so that Phil could work on materials pertaining to the forthcoming release of The Lady Killers and so Dean could get some chiropractic work done pertaining to his recovery from knee surgery, this week’s episode begins with updates on both these tales before your friends in podcasting launch into “Celebrity Deaths”, where they remember a former first lady of the USA, the star of a classic Kubrick film, a multiple-Oscar-winning filmmaker, a comedy impresario, a comedian and magician turned sitcom star and a talk radio pioneer. This week’s show features the return of “What We’re Reading” wherein Dean and Phil discuss how to maintain better focus at the contemporary art genre known as “minimal fantasy”. The movies Blade Runner 2049 and Faces Places get discussed in greater detail than ever before on the show and the “clearinghouse” approach to television embodied by the likes of Netflix and Hulu versus the “curated” approach taken by HBO and Showtime gets analyzed. A handful of shows get discussed in the process. All in all, this belated episode is choc-full-o-goodness and because it’s later than we like, it comes with a bonus 6 minutes!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #556

It’s a special Top Ten show! Your friends in podcasting count down their all time favorite War Films! It’s amazing how many different sub-genres of war films, Dean and Phil discover and more than thirty films actually get discussed. Trust us – It’s totally awesome.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #383

It’s too darn hot in Los Angeles and your friends in podcasting are high as proverbial kites on codeine swirl frappuccinos!

Dean performed in a “Live Event of the Week” and this fact leads to a discussion of public transportation, the immune system and Biddy Mason.

Phil spent all week (and the week before that) trying to get their new film submitted to Sundance, and in the process watch documentaries about The Magnificent Seven, Sam Peckinpah and Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory. He also saw the last film to star the great James Gandolfini (and boasting merely the latest indelible performance from the masterful Tom Hardy).

Two “Lawsuits of the Week” are discussed, which leads to analysis of sexual abuse in Hollywood, domestic violence in professional football and the role of interns in show business.

A great comic and a legendary big-screen villain are remembered.

All that, plus much more … Pass the Chillpak. It’s too darn hot!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #293

Happy Christmas, everybody!

This week’s show gets off to a flying start with a recap of the “Live Event of the Week” – the 28 hour marathon co-hosted by your friends in podcasting to ring in the end of the Mayan Calendar.

Dean discusses his road trip from hell.

Phil discusses catching up on some 2012 movies.

Dean and Phil revisit last’s week’s show all about the Top Films of All Time by looking at what directors had films mentioned most often on the lists submitted by guests of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

The show wraps up with a personal “Celebrity Death”, a wonderful character actor who was helping Dean and Phil in the development of their new film, The Lady Killers.

Speaking of The Lady Killers, please take the time to learn more about the film and how you can help (and PLEASE, spread the word!), by visiting here.

And if you’ve never seen Dean and Phil’s film The Truth is Out There . . . Why haven’t you? It’s available here.

Finally, we hope you will enjoy this holiday greeting from your friends in podcasting …
