Chillpak Hollywood Hour #457

This week’s show starts with “Celebrity Deaths” as a Supreme Court Justice and a legendary explorer of both inner and outer space are remembered. Then, the return of The Lone Gunmen in episode 5 of The X-Files revival is previewed. And then, it is safe to assume that more independent films are discussed than on any prior episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour! A special guest joins your friends in podcasting to file a report on the recent happenings at the Sundance Film Festival and Dean and Phil go through all the Film Independent Spirit Awards nominees and Phil completes his ballot for these indie film “Oscars” on the air.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #453

While your friends in podcasting were away during the past two weeks of pre-recorded shows, much has happened. Yet, before Dean and Phil “Point the compass of your brain to a journey on the map of the entire infinite”, Phil pulls out his soapbox to address a controversy surrounding the young actress (and U.N. Goodwill Ambassador) Emma Watson. Then, chameleon David Bowie, actor Alan Rickman, cinematographer Haskell Wexler, the “tall man” from the Phantasm movies and the man who changed the politics of Hollywood’s Awards Season are all remembered in “Celebrity Deaths”. Speaking of Awards Season, Dean and Phil have news and views on the Golden Globes, the Oscars the Directors Guild nominations and more! The Revenant, Beasts of No Nation, Son of Saul, Brooklyn, Amy and The Look of Silence all get discussed. All that, plus Phil has good news for fans saddened by the revelation of the fact that the first episode of The X-Files revival is … not good, Dean weighs in with his thoughts on Sean Penn going face-to-face with notorious drug kingpin “El Chapo”, he and Phil share what they’re reading, and Dean wraps things up with an update on his oft-delayed, much-anticipated graphic novel. It’s a lot to cover in one hour, but not too much when it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #434

Dean Haglund has a little too much reverb. Phil Leirness has had a little too much to drink. Together it all works to bring you a hilarious and informative installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.

From the madness that was Force Friday to “Celebrity Deaths” remembrances of a self-help guru, a Disney icon and a master of horror, from your friends in podcasting continuing their appreciations for the Film Fatales list of female-directed movies everyone should see to the influence of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour when it comes to IFC’s “Documentary Now”, Bill Murray’s return to “Ghostbusters” and the shakeup at the Marvel Studios. All that plus one scrapped TV revival, Amazon Streaming makes a move to really challenge Netflix, and “The Daily Show” names new correspondents.

Meanwhile, “The X-Files” has wrapped principal photography on its revival. Assuming it’s successful with viewers, where will the franchise go from here? You won’t want to miss what Dean Haglund has to say about that!
