Chillpak Hollywood Hour #566

On this week’s episode, we’ve got movies, including a discussion of some classic mysteries, and a brand new sci-fi masterpiece that sadly shows the sorry state of movie distribution! We have lawsuits, including one nasty battle between the US Department of Justice and media conglomerate AT&T, and a very different case about set safety on independent films in Canada! We have fond farewells to two true icons, one a scientific giant, the other a fashion legend! We have a show biz scandal featuring the august Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences! All that plus we tease huge life-changing news for Dean Haglund!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #397

Before taking off on their holiday travels, your friends in podcasting, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness are doing what they do best: Making sense of a (show business) world gone wild …

They weigh in on the cyber terrorist attack against Sony. They celebrate a milestone achieved by one of their favorite shows. They discuss live events starring the likes of Angela Lansbury and Jeff Goldblum. They dish on an animation price-fixing lawsuit, the decades-long Roman Polanski judicial drama and the idea of actors owning a copyright interest in their performances. They discuss casting news that has them hopeful and casting news that gives them pause. They champion three outstanding films from earlier this year that you probably missed that are available now on home video and they warn you against an award-hopeful Christmas Day opener that is without a doubt one of the worst films of the year. All that PLUS much more as they wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

All together now (singing): “We need a little Chillpak, right this very minute!”
