You would think when recording more than a day late, your friends in podcasting might be in something of a hurry … Instead, they take this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour and turn it into a leisurely 70 minute conversation about the UK “The Office”, “The Larry Sanders Show”, the acting intensive Phil taught this past weekend, recent news about their film The Lady Killers, a recent feature film about improv comedy, the great Don Rickles, and an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU) all about last week’s “Top Ten Artists” episode. All that, plus Dean delves further into the political and moral commentary contained within the paintings of Manet, they discuss what they are reading (a book that might become a future film by Phil and Dean actually reading fiction!), and there is a whole lot of movie development news, featuring the likes of Dwayne Johnson, Christian Bale, Sylvester Stallone and Joss Whedon!
Sounds like a good show to us!
Dean and Phil recorded this week’s extra-long episode right BEFORE the Emmy Awards, so if you’re hoping for analysis of the Television Academy’s big night, you’ll have to wait another seven days. Television does get discussed, however, as your friends in podcasting speak (again) about “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell” as well as the Netflix phenomenon “Stranger Things” and two future “nostalgia” series based on Spike Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It” and the Winona Ryder vehicle “Heathers”. Meanwhile, the great(est?) playwright Edward Albee is remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Dean’s comedy show, a 100th birthday celebration, a John Patrick Shanley play and Phil appearing live on-stage (in An LABC Home Companion, are all discussed in “Live Events of the Week”. And if you love movies, you will really love this week’s show as Dean and Phil cover wide cinematic ground, from this weekend’s disastrous box office results (the worst of an already horrible 2016) to films that might be among the most overlooked ever, from a great “Fortean” horror film of the 1970′s to Oliver Stone’s laughable “Snowden”, from a boatload of unnecessary remakes, sequels and revivals, to a promising Agatha Christie adaptation … All that and no doubt much more on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour with ten percent more “hour”!
Cookies. Adrian Brody and John Cusack in China. The deaths of a “Star Trek” producer and a legendary documentarian. A network television remake of Krzysztof Kieslowski’s The Declogue. Werner Herzog’s latest adventure in the South American wild. Spider-man’s return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The history of long form and short form improv. Mike Leigh’s improv approach to his (Academy Award nominated) screenplays. The future of Oscar acceptance speeches. The films of Stanley Kubrick. The best edited movies of all time. The history of the Los Angeles Breakfast Club. A forthcoming Alien sequel from the maker of District 9. That’s a lot to chew on. But chew on it all Dean and Phil do. Especially the cookies. It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
