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.

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

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.
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!

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.

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!
