Chillpak Hollywood Hour #553

Your friends in podcasting discuss one of the most sad Christmas celebrations in history, before discussing the deaths of a pop music star, a Native American character actor, a documentary filmmaker and the mayor of SF. Then, Phil turns his attention to one of the most surprising facts to come out of the Disney purchase of 21st Century Fox and Dean tries to calm him down. Then, they delve into the trouble engulfing Matt Damon, before weighing in on three brand new Oscar hopefuls: Downsizing (starring Mr. Damon), Phantom Thread (starring Daniel Day Lewis in his final role), and the rather miraculous All The Money In The World. All that, plus Kyle Machlachlan weighs in on whether “Twin Peaks: The Return” was a terrific season of a television series or whether it was one of the best feature films of the year, and a fantastic note from a loyal listener like you (yes, YOU!) is shared.

Chillpak Hollywood Hour #552

This week’s episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is a lot of fun, full of fascinating discussion and tons of laughs … It starts with Dean and Phil discussing ballet and ice skating! When has THAT happened on this show?! Phil weighs in on two live events AND the David Lynch-ian qualities of Glendale, California (where much of “Twin Peaks: The Return” was filmed). Then, thank heavens, there’s only one “celebrity death” to discuss and it’s an interesting one you probably don’t know about! That leads into a discussion of whether there really have been more “celebrity deaths” this year and last than ever before and whether the music industry has been especially hard hit. There’s actually a study being conducted to find those answers!

In show business news, it is likely that the legendary studio 20th Century Fox will no longer exist as of Wednesday, becoming subsumed by the ever growing Disney powerhouse. What does that mean for the future of the industry? Dean and Phil will wrestle with that question. Of course, there is also the latest in “Toxic Masculinity”. This week’s headliners include Louis CK, Dustin Hoffman, John Oliver and Bryan Singer. From show biz figures behaving badly to movies receiving accolades, Dean and Phil will dig into the movies making lots of Top Ten Lists, before reviewing a couple films that may or may not be making those lists. All that, PLUS …

As you know, each year, your friends in podcasting celebrate what they think were the best films of the previous year. Well, this year, Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness welcome special guest, film critic and Los Angeles Film Critics Association member Luke Y. Thompson to help them as they discuss the best films AND the worst films of 2015!

Best and worst in one show?! Why, that sounds like two shows!

And it almost is. At almost 1 hour and 50 minutes, this is our longest show ever (if you don’t count the 28 hour live “podcastathon” Dean and Phil did to ring in the end of the Mayan Calendar). So, get those Netflix queues handy, power up with the caffeinated beverage of your choice and let’s begin …
