Due to Phil’s teaching schedule, this week’s show was delayed by a half day. Once they made their trans-pacific, intercontinental connection, your friends in podcasting remembered a playwright, an actor from “The X-Files”, a beloved sitcom actor and a hip-hop star in “celebrity deaths”. They delved further into the topic of casting actors subsequent to a listener email they shared on last week’s show, which leads into a really deep analysis of diversity and cultural pendulum swings. Finally, they discussed such disparate movies as Clint Eastwood’s Sully, the recent drama about motherhood, Tully, the current inventive thriller Searching, as well as two legendary films, one about the concept of “celebrity” the other a romantic comedy about witches. YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour. Enjoy!
Mattie Giles is a Detroit-based film and television critic who has appeared on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour in the past. On this week’s show, he Skypes in with your friends in podcasting for a full hour of hilarious, free-wheeling conversation covering such topics as the film scene in Detroit, Detroit barbecue, the TV show “The Detroiters” and more things Detroit in anticipation of Dean’s moving there this fall. The talk also turns to recent movies, and one classic film as well, the TV shows Mattie has been reviewing, “The X-Files”, depression and more. All in all, it’s a truly entertaining hour!
