Chillpak Hollywood Hour #569

Your friends in podcasting have a lot of personal news to share: Dean’s continued recovery from knee surgery, details for the upcoming release of their movie The Lady Killers, the latest on Fuzz Aldrin’s miraculous return to health, and where in the world Dean will be living next! A couple of conversation threads from past weeks are picked up and amplified, as Dean and Phil discuss Dean’s feelings about film noir and why the box office success of the Star Wars franchise has always been unrelated to the films’ quality (or lack thereof). More than a half dozen current and recent movies get analyzed, including Atomic Blonde, A Quiet Passion, Blade Runner 2049, Red Sparrow, Ready Player One, A Quiet Place, Game Night and more.

How great a year in film was 2014? So great that neither Dean nor Phil managed to find room on their Top Ten Lists for the likes of such highly recommended features as Selma, Inherent Vice, The Babadook, CitizenFour or Calvary.

What DID make their lists? Listen to the episode (all 72 minutes of it!) and find out!

Love a good rant? Phil Leirness has you covered, taking on everything from the Ice Bucket Challenge to “Dr. Who” to Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide to Helen Mirren and The Hundred-Foot Journey!

It’s all in good fun, though, and he and Dean Haglund also weigh in on Richard Linklater’s Boyhood, Philip Seymour’s last completed performance in A Most Wanted Man, listener Andrew Burt’s PhD exams, their favorite Robin Williams roles and no doubt, a little bit more.

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 …
