This week’s show gets started with Dean providing an update on his graphic novel and a review of “Star Trek: Discovery” Season 3. Phil then shares a message from a loyal listener about their film The Truth is Out There. This leads to further discussion about such topics as conspiracy theories, cults, fear, how to recognize the truth, and “alienation of affection”. In “Celebrity Deaths”, Dean and Phil remember one of the greatest writers of television mysteries and an iconic voice of the British Invasion. Dean and Phil share a new review of their dark comedy feature film The Lady Killers and celebrate the fact that now everyone in the world can see it! Finally, a whole bunch of movies get discussed and reviewed, including Spike Lee’s critically-acclaimed Da 5 Bloods, Kelly Reichardt’s award-winning First Cow and a disappointing Tom Hanks western from director Paul Greengrass. Graphic novels, sci-fi TV, great new movies, conspiracy theories, celebrity deaths and more, all in one hour!
Another show 10 years in the making! Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness ring out 2019 by counting down their Top Ten lists of the Greatest Films of the Decade! Get that popcorn ready (and keep those Netflix queues handy) because we’re going to the movies …
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.
Ten years in the making, this episode of YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour is the last show of the year, the last show of the decade! And appropriately, Dean and Phil use the occasion to count down their Top Films of the past ten years. The countdown began over on their MySpace Blog where you can read their #’s 20 through 11 selections. Did your favorite film make their list? Did your LEAST favorite film make their list? Perhaps, you’ll discover a gem you’ve never before heard of, OR remember a film that somehow slipped away before you had the chance to view it. Enjoy! And from all of us here at Chillpak Hollywood Hour, have a safe and sane holiday season!
Today on the show, Dean and Phil discuss “There Will Be Blood” in detail (without giving away the ending, of course). Phil reveals what his guilty cinematic pleasure is (Six times, Phil? That’s a lot!). Phil’s most controversial comment ever uttered on these airwaves (or, uh, cyberwaves? Podwaves?). Dean and Phil prep for their Best of 2007 show.
