Chillpak Hollywood Hour #510

On this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, remembrance of Al Jarreau leads to a discussion of artistic integrity vs. commercial success, and a discussion of the television “bubble” leads to a discussion of what the proliferation of quality episodic entertainment means for movies. In between, Dean and Phil will discuss such films as Cemetery of Splendour, Inferno, Passengers and Split as well as forthcoming remakes and adaptations of such classics as Network, Out of Africa, Bullitt, Every Which Way But Loose, as well as the impressive new career arc Keanu Reeves is carving out for himself.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #483

What a smorgasbord of tasty audio topics your chefs in podcasting have cooked up for this week’s show! They remember Kenny Baker. They weigh in on Thomas Gibson’s firing from “Criminal Minds”. They discuss Malcolm Gladwell’s new podcast “Revisionist History” and such themes as “moral licensing” and how people with “low thresholds” can be expected to enact the most smart AND the most dumb behavior. Phil shares with Dean a news story pertaining to last week’s discussion about mobile phone usage in movie theaters (and other public places), a news story that actually featured Dean, himself! There’s scientific news from Dean’s adopted homeland Down Under, where some researchers believe they can prove stand-up comedians die younger than actors and other researchers think they have good news for Alzheimer’s patients. “Suicide Squad” is free-falling at the box office, but it still provides for this week’s long awaited return of the “Lawsuit of the Week”. All that, plus (at least) three 2016 cinematic releases get reviewed, including two that might have escaped your notice but are well worth your time and the new release “Florence Foster Jenkins” starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant.

It sure sounds like a nourishing helping of podcasty goodness to us! So, sit back and enjoy YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #451

Ordinarily, your friends in podcasting spend their first show of January looking back at the resolutions they made at the start of the previous year and then setting their intentions for the year to come. This annual tradition will be delayed one week. This week, Dean and Phil pick up exactly where they left off last week. In fact, it’s as if they are still in the same seats, across the table from each other in Los Feliz (despite whatever Dean might say in the opening). After sharing some final thoughts about “The Force Awakens” (and the more he thinks about the movie, the angrier Dean gets), they discuss a recently published list of the most “overlooked” films of 2015, analyzing each entry on that list. Phil also weighs in on two cinematic award hopefuls, David O’Russell’s “Joy” and the Maggie Smith vehicle “The Lady in the Van”. There’s also time for two emails from listeners (listeners like YOU). One is a follow-up on the discussion of TV’s “Supernatural” from a few weeks back and the other is an incredibly thought-provoking message about “women warriors”.

Something for everyone?

We like to think so.
