The Hold-Up: Runaway

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 03:35, Jun 20 2022

Runaway - Part 1 (with Jeremy Herbert)



This week, Jeremy Herbert and I are going to the past's future with Runaway (1984), starring Tom Selleck and his least-whimsical haircut of the 20th century.

If you're listening to this the day it comes out, please go check out Worst Laid Plans, a feature-length anthology film of vacation-themed horror movies. WLP is already shot, but they could use a little help with finishing funds. Their Indiegogo campaign runs for two more weeks. You can help out and snag your preorder at indiegogo.com

Also, if you're a fan of cyberpunk, satire, media, or just TV, do yourself a huge favor and find forty minutes in your day to watch this deep dive into the history and symbolism of Max Headroom: youtu.be/GsDrXc94NGU

The Hold-Up with Stephen Stull is a member of the Without Your Head podcast network. You can find us on any of the big podcast apps. You can also subscribe, rate, and review on those apps, and I hear all the cool kids are doing that these days.

Sneakers - Part 1 (with Jimmy Newlin)

My buddy Jimmy Newlin — Doctor Jimmy Newlin — returns to the podcast to talk about Sneakers (1992) and school my ass in the genius of Randy Newman. He also delivers an impressive reading list, so I hope you have a pencil handy.

The Hold-Up: Ed and His Dead Mother

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 04:08, May 23 2022

Ed and His Dead Mother - Part 1 (with Bob Rose and Jeff Frumess)

Today I'm chatting with two good friends (and avoiding all cheap jokes about threesomes): Bob Rose and Jeff Frumess. We planned to talk about 1993's Ed and His Dead Mother, but in the three hours we hung out, it really didn't come up much. I'm sure we'll get around to it in Part 2.

Technical note: The audio sounds a little weird because I recorded over Zoom, and I must have screwed something up in my settings, because all three of our channels came out in one mixed file. Sorry about that. I'll try to fix it before the second half.

Anastasia - Part 1 (with Jennifer Keating)

My wife and captive podcast guest Jennifer Keating tries to remember the sure-to-be totally historically accurate Anastasia (1997), and I swear, we honestly did not intend to do this movie on the same day Russia invaded Ukraine

The Hold-Up: Walk Like A Man

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 23:31, Apr 25 2022

Walk like a Man - Part 1 (with Tadd Good)

My friend Tadd Good reaches way back to try to remember the details of Walk like a Man (1987), and I continue to lament the fact that Hollywood has given up on curly-haired white dudes as romantic leads. Bee tee dubs, Tadd’s Snake Alley Festival of Film is accepting submissions right now! Get on that, ya goofs.

Prehysteria 3! - Part 1 (with Kylie Marklin)

Today I'm chatting with my friend Kylie Marklin about Prehysteria 3! (1995), a movie full of tiny golf and tinier dinosaurs. In addition, I make a hilariously futile attempt to make those years I spent playing adult vampire dress-up sound cool. Enjoy!

The Hold-Up: Singles

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 23:41, Feb 25 2022

Singles - Part 1 (with Tom Keeling)

My friend Tom Keeling returns to the podcast to talk about Singles (1992), except neither of us remembers the movie, so we mostly just talk about sitcoms. Prepare to hear my thoughts on The Office yet again!

The Hold-Up: Excalibur

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 23:39, Feb 25 2022

Excalibur - Part 1 (with Jennifer Keating)

We’re back, baby — the podcast and the terrible Photoshopping! This week, I’m making my legally wedded partner (GASP!) Jennifer Keating watch John Boorman’s Excalibur (1981), a movie I watched literally more than a dozen times in my youth. Probably.

Throw Momma from the Train - Part 1 (with Jennifer Keating)

Reverse Hold-Up! Jennifer Keating interviews me about Throw Momma from the Train (1987), a movie that came out the same year as Robocop. I feel like that’s an important thing to note.

PCU - Part 1 (with Ashley Stone)

My good friend Ashley comes back to the podcast to relive her glory days with PCU (1994). And for real, if you’re one of those people who dips pickles in mayo, please message me; I have so many questions.

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 06:13, Aug 11 2021

Memories of Murder - Part 1 (with Sergio Pinheiro)

My friend Sergio Pinheiro returns to the Hold-Up to talk about Bong Joon Ho’s serial-killer thriller Memories of Murder (2003). We also talk about writing and creating stuff and the differences between technical and taste failures, like actual grown-up artists. I don’t think either one of us made a single fart joke the whole time.

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 04:26, Jul 13 2021

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 20:41, Jun 29 2021

Pi - Part 1 (with Sophia Cacciola)

I’m joined this week by Sophia Cacciola to discuss Darren Aronofsky’s Pi (1998), an artsy-fartsy black-and-white movie about math that was definitely up Young Stephen’s alley. I’m sure this time around, it won’t be embarrassing to rewatch at all!

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 05:59, Jun 19 2021

Lifelong barbarian fan Michael J. Epstein joins me to talk about Conan the Barbarian (1982) and Conan the Destroyer (1984), and the two of us pine for the simplicity of a life where you can just hack the head off all your problems.

The Hold-Up: Pink Flamingos (with Jennifer Keating)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 05:56, Jun 18 2021

We’re changing everything up today! It’s a one-off with my partner Jennifer Keating in which we watch — for the first time — John Waters’s notorious Pink Flamingos (1972), a movie I’ve referred to a million times when trying to describe the vibe of the Sick ’n’ Wrong Film Festival. Find out whether I regret ever mentioning it!

The Hold-Up: Munchies - (with Jojo Carlman)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 19:29, May 25 2021

My friend Jojo Carlman joins the podcast to talk about Munchies (1987), a movie that features a bold and challenging double performance by the late, great Harvey Korman and is definitely totally not a cheap Gremlins ripoff.

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 19:25, May 25 2021

Rob White, known corduroy hater and creative force behind Art on Fire, joins the podcast this week to talk about Dead Man on Campus (1998) and do a deep dive into my shameful history of LARPing. It’s totally fun and not at all humiliating!

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 03:55, Apr 12 2021

I’m joined by scholar of comedy and SNL historian Jeremy Herbert to discuss the Chevy Chase starring vehicle Modern Problems (1981) as well as the contrasting career arcs of Chase and rival John Belushi.

Part 1


Jeremy Herbert returns to finish up our revisitation of Modern Problems (1981), a zany comedy about a man who uses his newfound godlike powers to cause his ex-girlfriend’s date to hemorrhage blood from his face. Such hijinks!

Part 2
