Most of this week’s show is comprised of the 5th Top Ten show of this, Year Ten of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. In it, Dean and Phil count down their Top Ten WORST films of 2016. First, however, your friends in podcasting celebrate the life and work of one of Phil’s all-time favorite character actors in “Celebrity Deaths” and answer an email from a listener like you (yes, YOU) about using CGI to create perfromances from actors who are no longer living (a la Peter Cushing in “Rogue One”). Brace yourselves for a master class in filmmaking and acting!
This week’s installment starts out like a Michael Bay film (CARMAGEDDON!) and quickly becomes a legal thriller thanks to a VERY intriguing adventure recounted by Phil. Dean tells of his weekend travels (both recent past and near future) and explains to Phil the difference between Veterans and veterinarians before he and Phil share once again the strange, sad tale of the Chillpak, this show’s former sponsor …
Then, it’s all about the movies as your friends in podcasting count down the Top 14 summer box office hits, analyzing their quality and what their success or failure says about the industry (and the culture at large).
You know it’s a strange, wonderful show when PHIL cites “Robot Chicken” AND compares the DC and Marvel universes!

Dean is back from doing a comedy benefit in San Jose, California. Phil spent all wekeend doing paperwork (hush, hush film development work), though he got out to see a comedy benefit here in Hollywood. They discuss both these shows before launching into analysis of a wide range of films. From German cinema “you will never forget,” to the career challenges of once-hot Guy Ritchie, to the over-exposure of Seth Rogen, Dean and Phil offer their insights before finally giving their long-awaited appraisal of what went right and what went wrong with Watchmen.
