Chillpak Hollywood Hour #513

After two weeks of special “theme” shows, your friends in podcasting are back and they bring an over-stuffed grab-bag of topics to delve into on this week’s episode … There is big news for Dean and Phil’s new movie, The Lady Killers. Phil has a brand new monthly show all about The Los Angeles Breakfast Club. Dean will be appearing alongside the other members of The Lone Gunmen in Texas in May. Dean will be having an art show in Los Angeles in July. All that gets discussed. There is an email from a loyal listener like you (yes, you) about science fiction novels and what Dean and Phil are reading. A beloved actor, a groundbreaking actress, a best-selling novelist and a film historian are all remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Finally, two weeks after the fact, your friends in podcasting weigh in on the Oscars, with detailed thoughts concerning host Jimmy Kimmel, the show’s ratings, the disastrous “In Memorium” tribute and oh, yeah, that little drama surrounding the Best Picture Award. All that plus such recent cinematic releases Get Out and Logan get reviewed.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #440

The show starts with two “Live Events of the Week” before the opening theme song even plays! Dean tells tales of hanging out in Melbourne with Lou Diamond Phillips and Peter Shinkoda, then Phil gives a history lesson on a bright light in the 1930′s progressive movement in L.A., as well as a re-opened and re-modeled SoCal cultural icon.

After the opening, your friends in podcasting discuss a “Lawsuit of the Week” where theatre actors are suing their own union and a Federal investigation into claims that women filmmakers are being discriminated against in Hollywood.

Then, movies and television shows get reviewed and discussed, including the documentary “Merchants of Doubt”, the current releases “Room” and “Spotlight”, the films of Fritz Lang, new television series “Quantico”, “Grandfathered” and “The Grinder”, and the new season of “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee”. After that, Dean and Phil iscuss an email from a loyal listener about how “good” television might be standing in the way of “great television” (and whether this might be true of movies as well). Then, it’s an absolute information dump as dozens of big-screen and small-screen adaptations, remakes, reboots and revivals are previewed and debated. “Men in Black”, “The Watchmen”, “Die Hard”, “Roots”, “Charlie’s Angels”, “Twin Peaks”, “Hart to Hart”, “Flatliners”, “Lethal Weapon”, “John Wick” and “The A-Team” are only some of the titles that will get discussed.

This one should be called YOUR Chillpak Hollywood 70 Minutes!
