Chillpak Hollywood Hour #406

Today is the day the annual movie awards season comes to a merciful conclusion and your friends in podcasting stick the final nail in its coffin with their annual review of the Oscars telecast wherein they reveal who they predicted would win in all 24 categories. As always, there’s a wager involved and for the 2nd year running, you’ll be treated to some classic clips from Academy Awards presentations past. And now, the envelope, please …

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #404

Brian Williams lies. Hollywood remakes or reboots EVERYTHING. Phil drops a ton of professional football knowledge on Dean. Dean tries to explain whether the film Asylum is real and if it is, whether he is really in it! Phil waxes rhapsodic about the filmmaking collaboration that resulted in Chinatown. Dean and Phil remember a classic film noir femme fatale. Dean tells his Minority Report story. AGAIN.

Has the whole world gone mad? Nope. It’s just another action-packed installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #401

Phil is finishing up two feature-length motion pictures. Dean appeared in two live shows. Together they are talking about those activities, answering emails from listeners like you, tackling the lack of diversity in the recently announced Academy Award nominations and taking on some of the worst films of the year.

And if they need ten percent more hour to get it all in, well who’s going to complain? It’s just six more minutes of Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness changing the way you listen to the internet!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #388

From hilarious start, to heart-rending conclusion, this is a truly unusual installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Dean and Phil attempt to unravel the mystery of the US Air Force X-37B Space Plane, try to solve disturbing audio problems, try to make sense of the deaths of the very talented Elizabeth Pena and Misty Upham, and try to get through lengthy and sometimes creepy emails regarding such topics as David Cronenberg, Edward Snowden, Oliver Stone, “The Wire” and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. Somehow, during all of that, “Gracepoint” gets dissected, David Byrne’s True Stories gets celebrated, Jason Bateman’s Bad Words gets remade and The Revenge of the Electric Car gets a new title!

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!
