Chillpak Hollywood Hour #575

Your friends in podcasting have a lot to cover on this week’s show! They will remember a 70′s icon, a legendary novelist and a prolific character actor in “Celebrity Deaths”. They will try to make sense of how America can actually move forward in the wake of yet another school shooting. They will discuss why this weekend’s Royal Wedding seemed to be such a big deal for so many. They will introduce a new segment called, “You Know Who’s Wonderful?” They will put the “Hollywood” into Chillpak Hollywood Hour by celebrating the glorious restorations of two cinematic landmarks, by discussing the brand new Hollywood Heritage annex and by discussing the proposed (and now stalled) trilogy of stand-alone “Star Trek” movies that were being written by the man responsible for all the best big-screen Treks. We’re not sure there’s any other podcast that covers such a wide range of topics and that does so with as much irreverence, insight or inspirational conversation as YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #506

Most of this week’s show is comprised of the 5th Top Ten show of this, Year Ten of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. In it, Dean and Phil count down their Top Ten WORST films of 2016. First, however, your friends in podcasting celebrate the life and work of one of Phil’s all-time favorite character actors in “Celebrity Deaths” and answer an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU) about using CGI to create perfromances from actors who are no longer living (a la Peter Cushing in “Rogue One”). Brace yourselves for a master class in filmmaking and acting!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #397

Before taking off on their holiday travels, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are doing what they do best: Making sense of a (show business) world gone wild …

They weigh in on the cyber terrorist attack against Sony. They celebrate a milestone achieved by one of their favorite shows. They discuss live events starring the likes of Angela Lansbury and Jeff Goldblum. They dish on an animation price-fixing lawsuit, the decades-long Roman Polanski judicial drama and the idea of actors owning a copyright interest in their performances. They discuss casting news that has them hopeful and casting news that gives them pause. They champion three outstanding films from earlier this year that you probably missed that are available now on home video and they warn you against an award-hopeful Christmas Day opener that is without a doubt one of the worst films of the year. All that PLUS much more as they wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

All together now (singing): “We need a little Chillpak, right this very minute!”
