Chillpak Hollywood Hour #521

Year 11 begins with … What else? … a “Celebrity Death”, as Dean and Phil remember the versatile, Oscar-winning filmmaker Jonathan Demme. Your friends in podcasting then re-visit last week’s 10th Anniversary Episode and share their thoughts about what they got wrong during the years, what surprised them, a fantastic article about the show and birthday greetings to a past guest. Then, it’s on to the work at hand, namely trying to make sense of the wild, wild, week that was …

The Royal Family, “Star Wars Day”, Cinco de Mayo, current attacks on the First Amendment and the anniversary of the birth of Orson Welles are just some of the topics dissected, analyzed, joked about and argued over! All that, PLUS, the new Writers Guild of America deal AND the future of cinema!

That’s a lot to cover, but if you’ve been following YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour these past ten years, it’s what you’ve come to expect!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #460

We apologize if this week’s episode might seem a little bit … confusing … Or confused … It was edited together from a long skype conversation your friends in podcasting had during last week’s Oscar telecast, a conversation that spawned last week’s show about the Spirit Awards and about the all-time Oscar snubs as well as the worst all-time Oscar winners (in a variety of categories). This week, more than a half dozen current cinematic releases and one prominent sci-film from the 1990′s get discussed and a big-screen adaptation of a classic sci-fi novel is previewed. The revival of “The X-Files” is analyzed, especially what they got right and where they go from here. And because it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Dean and Phil discuss a listener’s tweet exchange with Phil about the new “Star Trek” series, another listener’s email about the lack of diversity in Hollywood and an honorary member of the Chillpak family’s message weighing in on the merits of the Hulu series “11.22.63″. All that, and no doubt, plenty of laughs. Buckle up and enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #415

We’re only two episodes away from the end of year 8 and only five episodes away from Dean Haglund’s move to Australia, yet your friends in podcasting have more to discuss than ever before! From a full report on the preview screening of their new dark comedy, to the latest news regarding Sci-Fest, from the latest rumblings about the return of The X-Files to Phil’s heartfelt thank you and farewell to a film critic who played a major role in his development as an artist, this week’s installment is quite personal to Dean and Phil.

There is a ton of talk about current television (like Mad Men, Daredevil, and the countdown to David Letterman’s final show) and future television (an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off, the Twin Peaks reboot, and perhaps the most exciting new show to be announced in AGES!). There is also much attention to paid to forthcoming movies, including ill-advised remakes and reboots, and maybe a film or two worthy of optimism!

Dean and Phil follow up on their (enormously popular) discussion of female-driven films (episode #413), with a discussion of two emerging female musical artists. All that, plus the latest dirt Phil has learned about Scientology AND not one, not two, not three, but FOUR emails from listeners like you! Want to learn about IMDb? Want to learn about Dean and Phil’s favorite cookies? Then, stop reading and start enjoying this thrilling installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
