After two weeks of special “theme” shows, your friends in podcasting are back and they bring an over-stuffed grab-bag of topics to delve into on this week’s episode … There is big news for Dean and Phil’s new movie, The Lady Killers. Phil has a brand new monthly show all about The Los Angeles Breakfast Club. Dean will be appearing alongside the other members of The Lone Gunmen in Texas in May. Dean will be having an art show in Los Angeles in July. All that gets discussed. There is an email from a loyal listener like you (yes, you) about science fiction novels and what Dean and Phil are reading. A beloved actor, a groundbreaking actress, a best-selling novelist and a film historian are all remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Finally, two weeks after the fact, your friends in podcasting weigh in on the Oscars, with detailed thoughts concerning host Jimmy Kimmel, the show’s ratings, the disastrous “In Memorium” tribute and oh, yeah, that little drama surrounding the Best Picture Award. All that plus such recent cinematic releases Get Out and Logan get reviewed.
The great film theorist André Bazin described the genre of the movie western as “the American film par excellence.” Your friends in podcasting could not agree more! That’s why on this week’s show (their 2nd of 10 “Top Ten” shows commemorating this, the 10th year of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour), Dean and Phil count down their Top Ten All Time Westerns.
What films will make the list? What films won’t? Will Dean have difficulty numbering 10 to 1?
These questions and many more will be answered during the next 75 minutes. Enjoy!
A great character actor and a fascinating political pundit are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Race relations and corporate purpose are discussed in “What We’re Reading”. The list of the most livable cities if the world and the criteria used for determining those rankings are analyzed. Jared Leto was “tricked” into appearing in Suicide Squad and Tom Hardy wasn’t. How did both of these come to pass? And what long-awaited sequel will Jared Leto be starring in next? Speaking of long-awaited sequels, there’s casting news and there are continued reports of unnecessary remake after remake in the Hollywood development pipeline. As for the films currently available, Dean and Phil chat about two current releases (including the best film of the year thus far), a documentary about a recent “celebrity death” and two silent classics starring Valentino. And finally, as promised, the initial importance, the legacy and the ultimate irrelevance of “method acting” is explained. All that PLUS Opus Dei and vengeful masseuses, this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
