Chillpak Hollywood Hour #513

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.

If you have only recently joined the internet madness that is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, you might not recognize the name “David Sobolov”. You will almost certainly recognize the VOICE, however.

On CHH #30 & CHH #48, David came on board to share his insights and expertise as a politically active working actor, to discuss the politics of show business in general and the specifics of the negotiations between the actors unions and producers and the in-fighting within and between the two different actors’ unions. This week, Dean and Phil finally bring back David to share his stories and insights into the business and craft of voice-acting, to share his unique and uniquely inspiring and informative path into and through show business.

It’s an exciting time in the film business. The Award season is fast-approaching and critics are revealing their Top Ten Films of the year AND their Best of the Decade! So, Dean and Phil, who often talk about film critics and movie reviews, thought it was the perfect time to welcome an important critic onto the show. Luke Y. Thompson is an actor and a writer, a cultural observer, a contributor to Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood, and a film critic for E! Online as well as film critic for such print sources as the L.A. Weekly. Some of the topics he discusses with your friends in podcasting are the purpose of film critics, the future of film criticism, the best (and worst) films of the decade, why the horror genre is so maligned/misunderstood, and what films that have come out this year really deserve your attention AND need your help. You can learn more about LYT (and read his writing) at www.lytrules.com, but first, enjoy an hour of truly spirited, irreverent conversation on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
