This week, in honor of the spooky season, you will find your friends in podcasting and broadcasting in fine form, discussing one of Dean’s favorite horror films, the Swedish silent classic Haxan, and because nothing is spookier it seems than AI, they also discuss the recent sci-fi epic The Creator, and this summer’s Mission: Impossible entry. Phil predicted what he think is going to happen in the coming hours/days regarding the actors’ strike, and he and Dean take time to remember an iconic sitcom star from the 1970s, an iconic sitcom star of the 1990s, a star of TV’s “Lost in Space”, a groundbreaking, glass-ceiling shattering disc jockey, an action movie legend, and the man who created Nevada’s third most popular gambling and resort destination.
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!
