Chillpak Hollywood Hour #544

On this week’s brand new, action-packed episode #544, Dean and Phil are discussing great movies again, as they count down their lists of the Top Ten Action Movies of All Time!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #542

Everyone loves a good sequel, right? This week is part 2 of a theme show where Dean and Phil examine the British Film Institute list of “The 50 Films you should see by the age of 14.” The list was created in 2005 to inspire parents and educators to take movies as seriously as other forms of art and included the opinions of more than 70 experts including film producers, teachers, authors and critics. Of course, YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour was not around back then, so the BFI had to make do without input from your friends in podcasting. Until now. There are times Dean and Phil strongly agree with the list, other times they realize they have holes in their own cinematic educations, and times when they disagree with the list and/or note its particular European and British slant on the subject. All in all, a fascinating discussion of the art form, of education, of parenting and more. Part 2 picks up where Part 1 left off – 1971 (and Nicolas Roeg’s Walkabout) – and goes through the final entry, 2003′s Finding Nemo.

Happy Christmas, everybody!

This week’s show gets off to a flying start with a recap of the “Live Event of the Week” – the 28 hour marathon co-hosted by your friends in podcasting to ring in the end of the Mayan Calendar.

Dean discusses his road trip from hell.

Phil discusses catching up on some 2012 movies.

Dean and Phil revisit last’s week’s show all about the Top Films of All Time by looking at what directors had films mentioned most often on the lists submitted by guests of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

The show wraps up with a personal “Celebrity Death”, a wonderful character actor who was helping Dean and Phil in the development of their new film, The Lady Killers.

Speaking of The Lady Killers, please take the time to learn more about the film and how you can help (and PLEASE, spread the word!), by visiting here.

And if you’ve never seen Dean and Phil’s film The Truth is Out There . . . Why haven’t you? It’s available here.

Finally, we hope you will enjoy this holiday greeting from your friends in podcasting …

Fires in Los Angeles, triathlons in Long Beach, weddings in Virginia, award ceremonies in Washington, D.C., anti-Islamic YouTube videos, the mysterious Toynbee tiles, the fluoridation of our water supply …

What AREN’T your friends in podcasting talking about on this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour?!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #256

Has there ever been a more wild and free-wheeling grab bag of topics on a single installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour as there is on this week’s show? Consider the topics discussed:

The mysterious death of Thomas Kinkade, the occult meaning of words and symbols, Dean Haglund running a 5K race, the legacy of Mike Wallace, the films of Guy Maddin, the latest in the MPAA’s battle with The Weinstein Company over the rating of Bully.

All that, plus your friends in podcasting weigh in on a documentary about Comic-con, a Woody Allen drama, a John Cassavetes classic, two great, award-winning independent films from last year (one from the UK, one from South Korea).

And on top of all of that, we even have a brand new theme song by The B-Film Extras!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #252

Your friends in podcasting open this week’s show by discussing the early beginnings of the feature film era.

They close this week’s show by discussing … The beginnings of the feature film era!

In between, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness discuss romance in the movies, the state of romantic comedies, Star Wars, The X-Files: I Want to Believe, several weird and wonderful films you will never get to see (but can read about here), the origin and purpose of the legal system, Placido Domingo and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”.

Please don’t let the slight audio hiss and hum prevent you from enjoying this latest serving of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. We were able to solve the problem about a third of the way through …

Have a great week, everybody!

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!

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.
