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!

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!

Jennifer Keating “returns” (we’ve actually been spending 24 hours a day together for about a year now

The Hold-Up: The Little Mermaid - Part 1 (with Jennifer Keating)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 02:42, Mar 09 2021

My life and shelter partner Jennifer Keating returns to talk about The Little Mermaid (1989), and we discuss the inescapable influence of Disney on our lives as well as the possible presence of naughty bits in the movies. If you want to examine Disney’s “knee” theory for yourself, you can find a comparison of the VHS and digital versions of The Little Mermaid here:

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 18:07, Mar 02 2021

Jay returns to finish our revisitation of Dead Again (1991), and it turns out, I didn’t ruin the movie for him! Of course, he may never be able to look at another pair of scissors again..

The Hold-Up: Dead Again - Part 1 (with Jay Kay)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 03:20, Feb 16 2021

Today I’m talking to the strange man in a film land, Jay Kay, host of Horror Happens Radio and all-around busy dude. We’re talking a little bit about Kenneth Brannagh’s Dead Again (1991) and a lotta bit about that festival life. We commiserate about our retail woes and share advice for burgeoning filmmakers, and I offer up a ton of clumsy-ass conversation segues over the course of our 2.5-hour conversation. Get comfy!

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 05:34, Feb 13 2021

Sean Temple is back to finish our revisitation of Requiem for a Dream (2000), and I find just so many excuses to out myself as a terrible filmmaker.

The Hold-Up: Requiem for a Dream - Part 1 (with Sean Temple)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 05:26, Feb 13 2021

Filmmaker Sean Temple returns to the podcast to talk about Darren Aronofsky’s Requiem for a Dream (2000), which played a pretty formative role for both of us. This first half of our chat was recorded way back in the bygone year of 2020, before even the US presidential election, so if you kind of get the feel that I’m a dejected soul devoid of hope, well... that’s why.

The Hold-Up: Cache - Part 2 (with Scott Philip Goergens)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 08:14, Feb 11 2021

My friend Scott Philip Goergens returns for our post mortem on Caché (2005), and we just embrace not knowing how to say “Haneke.” I find time to whine about being old and not understanding technology, and I also dole out heaps of parenting advice despite never having been (nor ever planning to be) responsible for another human’s care. Scott and I talk a bit about what makes a spoilable movie, and while I still hope you’ll watch Caché before listening to the talk, I think we manage to leave enough mystery that you’ll still enjoy the movie if you watch afterward.

The Hold-Up: Cache - Part 1 (with Scott Philip Goergens)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 08:09, Feb 11 2021

Today, I’m talking with my friend and multitalented artist Scott Philip Goergens about Michael Hankeke’s Caché (2005). Of course, I hadn’t seen the movie, so mostly we talk about what kind of movies affect us and how just delightful it is trying to make a living as an artist in a society that can’t even agree that art has any value to it.

The Hold-Up: Empire Records - Part 2 (with Tom Keeling)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 04:10, Jan 26 2021

My pal Tom Keeling returns to chat about 1995’s Empire Records, and as usual, I find an excuse to go off on a shrill, raving diatribe against the institution of higher education. Other topics covered include my failing body, The Office, and the breadth of musical styles explored by AC/DC.

The Hold-Up: Empire Records - Part 1 (with Tom Keeling)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 23:36, Jan 20 2021

This week, I’m talking to a buddy from the way-way-way back, my friend Tom Keeling. We’re chatting about Empire Records (1995), as well as Scotch eggs, the vodka aisle at Ralph’s, and everyone’s seemingly total inability to just wear their damn masks properly! We also both give our best Pee Wee Herman in Buffy the Vampire Slayer impressions, and I do quite a lot of fist shaking at these kids with there music.

The Hold-Up: Mystery, Alaska - Part 2 (with Matthew Rooney)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 03:43, Jan 12 2021

NEW EPISODE! Matthew returns for our post mortem on Mystery, Alaska (1999), a movie that almost certainly would’ve been better if it had been more depressing. Matthew gives me the hockey fan’s perspective on the gameplay in the movie, and I lament multiple times that no one gets any hot sauce in their jock straps. Also, we spend more time than I usually allow Googling on mic, so... sorry?

The Hold-Up: Mystery, Alaska - Part 1 (with Matthew Rooney)

Posted in The Hold-Up by Neal at 01:40, Jan 05 2021

My friend Matthew Rooney joins the podcast to talk about a movie I must have seen the trailer for on a dozen different Blockbuster rentals, Mystery, Alaska (1999). He also explains to me the stereotype about Canadians and hockey, and we commiserate over the plague of deliberately loud cars and motorcycles. I let him in on the secret behind the “Florida man” trope, and we take turns reading the names of Canadian cities off a map. I promise, it’s more entertaining than it sounds (but not by much).
