If you are looking for YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour, this must be the place!
This week on Chatting With Sherri we have New York Times bestselling author of over eighty novels and two hundred short stories, essays, and articles; Nancy Holder. She will chat about her new book; BUFFY: THE MAKING OF A SLAYER. This book celebrating the 15th anniversary of Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series, this lavishly produced book is the first authorized, fully illustrated retrospective of the hit show. Please join us for this fun filled half hour!
Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness follow up on last week’s hilarious discussion about “The Price is Right” by discussing Lily Holleman’s appearance on that television institution, analyzing how she won, what she won and what it means tax-wise for people who do win on game shows.
Then, Dean and Phil wrap up their ongoing discussion of the eight ways our brains “lie” to us every day by discussing stereotyping.
Phil takes time to remember a “friend of the family” who died this month, a self-made man who went from 14 year-old dropout to hairdresser to successful producer.
Finally, next week is our annual look at the top films of the previous year, so Dean and Phil have been watching a ton of movies and this leads to a discussion of The Hunt, HBO’s True Detective and Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing” with Joss Whedon receiving both a tip of the cap AND a stern wag of the finger!
All that, plus Lawrence Welk!?

Intent on reversing the adage "They don't make 'em like they used to", the team behind 2001's ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE succeeded in spades. Dir. by Kirk Wise & Gary Trousdale (the men behind BEAUTY AND THE BEAST), with a story by FIREFLY's Joss Whedon and GORILLAS IN THE MIST's Tab Murphy; and featuring designs by HELLBOY's Mike Mignola, it was the grandest of Verne-sian adventures. A moderate success, it's failure to achieve blockbuster status marked the end of "hand-drawn" animation at Disney, and signaled a policy change which would tear apart many who in the previous decade had given the studio it's biggest hits - including THE LITTLE MERMAID and THE LION KING. Includes film audio clips, concept art, excerpts from James Netwon Howard's score, archival commentary by Wise, Trousdale, Murphy and Mignola; and an excerpt from Gary Trousdale's 2012 interview with TAG (The Animation Guild).

Co-written by Joss Whedon (BUFFY, THE AVENGERS) & John August (BIG FISH, CORPSE BRIDE), directed by Don Bluth & Gary Goldman (THE SECRET OF N.I.M.H., THE LAND BEFORE TIME); and featuring stunning concept designs by Ron Cobb (CONAN THE BARBARIAN, THE LAST STARFIGHTER), Oliver Scholl (STARGATE, A.I.) and Wayne Barlowe (AVATAR, HELLBOY), the 2000 animated sci fi / adventure epic, ... and box office disappointment ..., TITAN A.E., would ultimately emerge as the quintessential more mature genre exercise years ahead of it's medium, era, and originally misdirected studio ad campaign.
