Chillpak Hollywood Hour #499

This week’s show begins with Phil sharing a story about Sharon Jones (whose music is featured in our opening) before he offers a mea culpa about misinformation he relayed while discussing “La La Land” last week. Then, because a week seemingly can’t go by in 2016 without a “celebrity death”, Dean and Phil will remember a great character actress. They will then launch into the latest heartening and distressing news about the new CBS All Access/Netflix series “Star Trek: Discovery”. As promised at the end of last week’s show, your friends in podcasting will tackle the topic off diversity on the small screen before launching into extended analysis of the latest developments in the movie awards season. Finally, they will discuss the merits of such films as “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, “Fences”, “Manchester by the Sea” and perhaps one or two more.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #469

X (as in the roman numeral for “10″) marks the spot as your friends in podcasting launch year ten of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour! And boy is there a ton of show business news, views and reviews to cover! The show gets started with the description of a live comedy show and a trip in a time machine, through Hollywood history, as part of the “Live Event of the Week”. Then, after discussing what they’re reading, Dean and Phil tackle the way President Obama may have changed how you will view entertainment at home, a new streaming service from the Criterion Collection, and all the news pertaining to The Marvel and D.C. Cinematic Universes, plus casting news pertaining to the new Han Solo plus television projects for Kurt Russell, Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin. All that, plus dream interpretation, news that the forthcoming “Blade Runner” sequel is an Oscar hopeful, the best of current television and a severe wag of the finger directed at the Fox Corporation for failing to have even ONE female-directed film on their release slate for the next TWO years!
