My friend Kat Whitacre comes over to chat — and sing — about Space Jam (1996) and throw some serious shade at Martin Starr. I’d still date you, Martin.
Kat is one of the doomer geniuses behind Uncomfortable Brunch, a film series here in Orlando where you eat a delicious brunch while you watch an upsetting movie. It’s a hoot! This coming Sunday, July 11, UB is showing Spike Lee’s Bamboozled (2000) at noon at the Enzian Theater. You should come! The chicken and waffles will almost ease the pain of all the racism. Except not really.
Also, I guess you should vote for either Uncomfortable Brunch or the Sick ’n’ Wrong Film Festival in this year’s Orlando Weekly Best of Orlando Reader’s Poll. We’re both competing for the title of Best Film Fest or Series, but Kat basically admits that UB shouldn’t be in there, so vote for SnW instead. PLEASE?!
Kat Whitacre returns to finish up our discussion of Space Jam (1996), and we find a reason to bring up the fact that Matthew Broderick killed two women in Ireland in 1987. I told you, Broderick — The Hold-Up remembers.
Along with Joshua Martin and Lorraine Sovern, Kat runs Uncomfortable Brunch, a film series in Orlando featuring delicious breakfast foods served alongside disquieting cinema. It’s a hoot! If you missed Spike Lee’s Bamboozled yesterday, you can still enjoy upcoming screenings of Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche, NY and Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist (the perfect date movie!). Get all the details at the Enzian Theater’s website.
And while we‘re talking about Orlando things, our alt weekly down here (appropriately called Orlando Weekly) is taking votes for their yearly Best of Orlando poll. Both Uncomfortable Brunch and the Sick ’n’ Wrong Film Festival are up for Best Film Fest or Series. Obviously, you should vote for Sick ’n’ Wrong, but if you vote for Uncomfortable Brunch, I guess I won‘t be mad at you. Vote now at vote.orlandoweekly.com. Thanks!
The Hold-Up with Stephen Stull: I watch old, beloved movies with friends, and we see if they hold up!
