Chillpak Hollywood Hour #336

The fall television season is in full swing and it’s time to declare winners and losers, so your friends in podcasting have it covered, the shows that are hits and those that are about to be canceled (if they haven’t been already!). They also talk about the Univision remake of “Breaking Bad” and how impressed Sir Anthony Hopkins is with Bryan Cranston’s work in the original.

Speaking of television, Dean and Phil will examine the possibility of a future incarnation on the big/small screens of “The X-Files” as well as the currently underway reboot of “Remington Steele”.

Fall also means we’re approaching the awards season here in Hollywood, a time when the movie industry puts its best product into the marketplace. A Vanity Fair piece described 2013 as possibly the best year in movies since 1939. Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness will discuss this assertion and examine the merits of a handful of new (or future) releases.

Plus, Dean and Phil will discuss the way AMC theatres might just be changing the way you feel about going to the movies.

Finally, your friends in podcasting explain one of the eight ways your brain lies to you every day!

All that, and much more, on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #330

After spending 20 hours a day for more than a month working on their new feature film The Lady Killers (which needs YOUR help!), Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are back to co-hosting the type of show long-time listeners have come to expect … Namely, a free-wheeling, often insightful, occasionally inspirational and frequently irreverent discussion about anything going on in the world that has their attention and how that topic is depicted in the media …

This week’s topics include the fate of the Chillpak, the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, the casting of James Spader in “Avengers 2″, the casting of Peter Capaldi as Dr. Who, the civil war in Syria, the disastrous summer of 2013 for movies, crowd-sourcing and much, much more …

Here’s a thought: Don’t just enjoy YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour – Share it with friends!
