Chillpak Hollywood Hour #602

Do you know what Stan Lee’s real name was and why he changed it? Did you know that during the 1940′s and 50′s conservatives weren’t just on a witch hunt against suspected communists but against superhero comic books as well? Join your friends in podcasting as they remember the comic book giant in “Celebrity Deaths” and discuss his cultural impact, his legacy and the controversies in which he found himself. Then, Phil sits down in the woods with filmmaker Ilana Rein, to discuss her narrative feature debut Perception. Long-time listeners might recall that Ilana served as Dean and Phil’s co-host during their 26 hour Mayan podcastathon, back in 2012. So, it’s great to finally have her back to discuss her work. Then, Dean and Phil get into a fascinating discussion about how much films can change from script to screen, using the upcoming Netflix post-apocalyptic action epic Bird Box movie as a case in point. Finally, the joy of still having so many amazing movies from the past to discover and enjoy gets celebrated, with an awesome little mystery film from the late 1970′s taking center stage. YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #210

According to Harold Camping, Saturday 21 May was Judgment Day, so all of us who are still here must be damned! Which only seems appropriate as your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness had one HELL of a good time at the US premiere of their film The Truth Is Out There at The Retro Dome in San Jose. After the screening was completed, Dean and Phil took the stage for this LIVE installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … Hilarity, special guests, audience questions, Phil’s tears … It’s the end of the world as we know it!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #89

Philip Newby was an incredibly gifted actor-writer-performer, and the first guest Dean and Phil ever welcomed to Chillpak Hollywood Hour (27 August 2007, episode #17, back when we were still “From the Heart of Hollywood”). Philip killed himself this past week. Phil and Dean share memories of their friend and try to put this deeply felt loss into some sort of perspective.

Always grateful for the feedback from their listeners, Dean and Phil share some thoughts about their film Spectres sent to them by loyal listener Erynn and answer a couple of filmmaking-related questions and The Sicilian. Finally, Dean and Phil go over the Academy Award nominations with a fine-tooth comb.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #82

Dean is back from the Queen Mary where he performed his live comedy show for a convention of “ghost hunters” exploring the famous, floating, haunted hotel. He shares all the spooky goings on. Then things get REALLY scary, as Dean and Phil discuss breaking news involving Jay Leno, and Phil gives “equal time” to the argument AGAINST authorizing a Screen Actors Guild strike. Finally, Dean and Phil will finish what they started last week, previewing all the films to be released before the end of the year. Ghosts, labor strife and movies – What more could you want from a free hour of audio-only internet entertainment?

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #60

It’s the End of the World! Well, not yet, but soon. Dean and Phil turn their attention to the Mayan calendar, which ends in 2012. Chaos! Destruction! More Chaos! It’s all in a day’s work…

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #29

Hey, we’re back, we’re late , that’s how it goes here sometimes. Today, Dean tells tales of ghost hunting on the Queen Mary (spooky), gives us the 411 on his benefit performances, and Phil and Dean ponder whether Dean’s old TV crew, The Lone Gunmen, could be brought back. Enjoy!
