Chillpak Hollywood Hour #179

from Chillpak Hollywood Hour by Phil Leirness

Another day late and you can take your pick as to why … Dean Haglund flying back from Valley Con in Fargo, North Dakota, Phil in migraine hell, or an error in encoding this week’s show … Nevertheless, your friends in podcasting are back and better than ever, continuing their conversation about the importance, function and nature of criticism, paying particular attention this week to film criticism. A couple of the worst films of all time are compared and contrasted, great films that would never have had the chance to find an audience if it hadn’t been for BAD reviews (!) are discussed, and Dean turns the tables on Phil, quizzing him about what he’s learned from bad reviews his films have received. Informative, irreverent, irrepressible, it’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!

Meanwhile, John Lennon’s 70th Birthday is celebrated by having the cast of Glee take over the all-time Billboard Hot 100 Charts record from those flashes-in-the-pan The Beatles. Tony Curtis is still being remembered by Dean and Phil.

All that, plus what makes us powerful, how best to embody the changes we wish to see in the world AND the latest on why Phil loves Tim Gunn. It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour.
