This is the 9th “Top Ten” show of this year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour … Your friends in podcasting count down their lists of the Top Ten All-Time Most Overlooked Science Fiction Films!
These might not be the best, nor the most underrated. They are, for reasons that Dean and Phil attempt to discern, overlooked by modern audiences …
Another extra-long episode, full of skype-based “hiss”, but we promise to do better in year 11!
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!
Dean and Phil recorded this week’s extra-long episode right BEFORE the Emmy Awards, so if you’re hoping for analysis of the Television Academy’s big night, you’ll have to wait another seven days. Television does get discussed, however, as your friends in podcasting speak (again) about “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell” as well as the Netflix phenomenon “Stranger Things” and two future “nostalgia” series based on Spike Lee’s “She’s Gotta Have It” and the Winona Ryder vehicle “Heathers”. Meanwhile, the great(est?) playwright Edward Albee is remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Dean’s comedy show, a 100th birthday celebration, a John Patrick Shanley play and Phil appearing live on-stage (in An LABC Home Companion, are all discussed in “Live Events of the Week”. And if you love movies, you will really love this week’s show as Dean and Phil cover wide cinematic ground, from this weekend’s disastrous box office results (the worst of an already horrible 2016) to films that might be among the most overlooked ever, from a great “Fortean” horror film of the 1970′s to Oliver Stone’s laughable “Snowden”, from a boatload of unnecessary remakes, sequels and revivals, to a promising Agatha Christie adaptation … All that and no doubt much more on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour with ten percent more “hour”!
It’s the first episode of 2013 and since it’s early January, where would your friends in podcasting be but poolside atop downtown Los Angeles?!
So, grab the sunscreen and join Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness as they discuss fine art, popular music, television, movies and celebrity deaths!
From record setting box office by a film from France, to precedent-setting success by a VOD release, from the most popular filming locations in L.A. to the return of 1980′s action heroes, from the smash hit album “21″ by Adele, to the death of one of the most popular singers of the 1950′s, this installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour has all the news, views and reviews you’ve come to expect and enjoy.
Happy 2013, everybody! It promises to be our best year yet!
What do Charles Chaplin, James Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Paul Newman and Orson Welles all have in common? Well, they’re all dead, of course, AND they all live on as part of Dean and Phil’s countdown of their all-time favorite actors who are no long with us. It’s part one of a three part special edition of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour that focuses on acting and actors. Keep that Netflix queue handy!
What a show! Dean and Phil pay their final respects to Paul Newman, Phil rips the Department of Homeland Security a new one, the box office success of Christian faith-based Fireproof and new film distribution methodologies are analyzed, and Dean reveals a surprising understanding of gay porn.
