Chillpak Hollywood Hour #540

Even though the Emmy Awards celebrating Television took place last night, your friends in podcasting spend the entire hour (and ten minutes) talking movies. First, they start by celebrating the life and career of the singular Harry Dean Stanton. Then, they discuss misogyny and sexual assault in the movie exhibition business. Finally, Dean and Phil tackle a wide range of cinematic endeavors, including two surrealist (absurdist?) classics by Luis Bunuel, a late classic western by Sam Peckinpah, an all-star war film from the 1970′s, the restored director’s cut of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and an Alfred Hitchcock comedy. Pass the popcorn – We’re talking movies!

Painting, photography, sculpture, design and more, all get discussed in depth in a rousing conversation between Dean and Phil. It’s the 8th Top Ten show of this year 10 of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #117

A.O. Scott and Michael Phillips might have just been named as the new co-hosts of At the Movies, the long-running movie review program started by Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert, but they have already given this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, “Two big thumbs up! Way up!” We have no idea what this means, however, we do know that this show is for the movie lovers in our audience. And if those movies are porn versions of The X-Files, gory vampire films, documentaries about food, irreverent satires, existential dramas, surreal comedies, science-fiction allegories, period pieces, or kick-ass World War II action epics, or all of the aforementioned, or even if you just want inspired and inspiring conversation, this week’s show will have your two thumbs beside themselves with joy!

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. Warning: Dean and Phil's usually hilarious and frequently inspiring discussions are habit-forming, so please, enjoy responsibly!
