Chillpak Hollywood Hour #492

The great film theorist André Bazin described the genre of the movie western as “the American film par excellence.” Your friends in podcasting could not agree more! That’s why on this week’s show (their 2nd of 10 “Top Ten” shows commemorating this, the 10th year of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour), Dean and Phil count down their Top Ten All Time Westerns.

What films will make the list? What films won’t? Will Dean have difficulty numbering 10 to 1?

These questions and many more will be answered during the next 75 minutes. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #435

After much hilarity, this week’s show begins with a letter from a listener like you (yes, YOU!) commenting on Dean’s use of the word “sensei” and his use of reverb on last week’s show. From there, your friends in podcasting remember actor Martin Milner and discuss Veronica Lake and the therapeutic aspects of acting, before launching into the movie and tv news that caught their attention last week, including such topics as a “Trainspotting” sequel, Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show” debut, the forthcoming New York premiere of the revival of “The X-Files” and Nicole Kidman joining the cast (or not) of “Top of the Lake”. Then, Dean and Phil FINALLY begin their discussion about the art (and commerce) of supporting players and some of the contemporary character actors they most admire. All that plus … Dean and Phil wield influence with the British Film Institute?

Enjoy!

About the show
Dean Haglund, the actor, improv comic and inventor (best known as “Langly,” one of the three computer-hacking geeks on “The X-Files” and their spin-off series “The Lone Gunmen”) engages in thought-provoking, insightful, and irreverent cultural conversation with his co-host and producing partner, independent filmmaker and certified violence prevention specialist Phil Leirness in the production offices of Rational Exuberance. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
