Chillpak Hollywood Hour #569

Your friends in podcasting have a lot of personal news to share: Dean’s continued recovery from knee surgery, details for the upcoming release of their movie The Lady Killers, the latest on Fuzz Aldrin’s miraculous return to health, and where in the world Dean will be living next! A couple of conversation threads from past weeks are picked up and amplified, as Dean and Phil discuss Dean’s feelings about film noir and why the box office success of the Star Wars franchise has always been unrelated to the films’ quality (or lack thereof). More than a half dozen current and recent movies get analyzed, including Atomic Blonde, A Quiet Passion, Blade Runner 2049, Red Sparrow, Ready Player One, A Quiet Place, Game Night and more.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #484

A great character actor and a fascinating political pundit are remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Race relations and corporate purpose are discussed in “What We’re Reading”. The list of the most livable cities if the world and the criteria used for determining those rankings are analyzed. Jared Leto was “tricked” into appearing in Suicide Squad and Tom Hardy wasn’t. How did both of these come to pass? And what long-awaited sequel will Jared Leto be starring in next? Speaking of long-awaited sequels, there’s casting news and there are continued reports of unnecessary remake after remake in the Hollywood development pipeline. As for the films currently available, Dean and Phil chat about two current releases (including the best film of the year thus far), a documentary about a recent “celebrity death” and two silent classics starring Valentino. And finally, as promised, the initial importance, the legacy and the ultimate irrelevance of “method acting” is explained. All that PLUS Opus Dei and vengeful masseuses, this week on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
