Those of you who have been longtime listeners know that Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have a lot of practice in trying to make sense of a world seemingly gone wild, and having witnessed them do that for almost 13 years on YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, you know that they can bring insight, irreverence and the inspirational no matter the circumstances. On this week’s show, they will discuss how they had apparently been preparing to be on lockdown for a year or more, what they have witnessed in the wake of Covid-19’s rapid spread and what’s right about it all. They will discuss the potential future impacts on movies and television. They will discuss what they have been watching of late. They will remember a great comedic TV actor, an Oscar-nominated actor, a ground-breaking radio host, and a trailblazing playwright. Oh, yeah, and they have a fascinating discussion analyzing the marketing of a Matthew McConaughey movie that bombed in 2019!
This week, Dean and Phil continue to change the way people listen to the internet with the final episode of year 12 of this podcast! They will remember an Oscar-nominated director, a trailblazing jurist, a delightful character actor and a sci-fi icon in “Celebrity Deaths”. They will update on the Writers Guild’s battle with the talent agents, including what the endgame is … And speaking of “endgames”, the latest news about the Marvel box office behemoth gets analyzed. All that, plus Dean and Phil lock horns while discussing a documentary about David Lynch, and discuss two 2018 releases, “Rampage” and “The Spy Who Dumped Me”, because they represent a lot of what is wrong with the movie business. Join us as we turn 12!
