11 "AMERICAN BEAUTY" (with Jorge Morales and Jean-Luc McMurtry)
Sean Kilby is joined by Jorge Morales and Jean-Luc McMurtry to discuss best picture winner American Beauty. This movie received nearly universal acclaim upon release, but will it remain beloved? There is a ton of disagreement on how well this movie holds up nearly 20 years later. Does Kevin Spacey make it impossible to see this movie the same way? Is it overrated as a best picture? Is the “bag in the wind” scene literal trash? We debate that and more! Please subscribe now and share your...
10 "LOST" (with Daryn Carp and John Thrasher)
Sean Kilby is joined by Daryn Carp and John Thrasher (hosts of Martinis & Murder podcast) for the first ever "TV episode" of Hold Up Hold Up, as we discuss the two-part pilot to LOST. All three watched the show the first time around, but haven't revisited the series since the finale aired in 2010. This episode of HUHU is mostly spoiler-free (outside of plot from the pilot) for those listeners who have yet to experience the series. Spoilers begin at the 53:00 minute mark, as we close the...
9 "West Side Story" (with Jorge Morales and Sam Hood Adrain)
Host Sean Kilby is joined by actors Jorge Morales and Sam Hood Adrain to discuss West Side Story. Both guests are theater professionals, but Sam is a West Side Story veteran while Jorge and Sean have little experience with the film. How will this retelling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet hold up after 57 years? Is the questionable makeup in the movie too much to overcome, or will the soundtrack be enough to put it over the top? Please subsribe now and share your thoughts on the West...
8 "Lethal Weapon" (with Nathan Kloke and Chris Hawthorne)
Host Sean Kilby is joined by filmmaker Chris "CB" Hawthorne and entertainment producer Nathan Kloke to discuss the quintessential buddy cop movie, Lethal Weapon. Are we ready to watch Mel Gibson again guilt-free? Is this movie as good as we remember, or just a relic from the 80's?

7 “Jaws” (with Daniella Pineda and Andre Hyland)
Host Sean Kilby is joined by actors Daniella Pineda and Andre Hyland to discuss the mother of all Summer Blockbusters: Jaws. This movie changed film history and is celebrated as a turning point for the industry. But after 43 years, will this movie feel just a little bit too dated? Or is it still thriller perfection?

6 "Bring It On” (with Hannah Berner and Michelle Ciciyasvili)
Sean Kilby is joined by Betches creative video producer Hannah Berner and PR pro Michelle Ciciyasvili to discuss Bring It On, or as Roger Ebert called it "the Citizen Kane of cheerleading movies." This high school comedy was released in 2000 and has gone on to achieve cult-classic status. But after 18 years, how much of this movie Holds Up, and how much will leave us cringing? Even though Bring It On features a stellar cast and is still beloved by many, the flaws in this film are...
5 "The Blair Witch Project" (with Aaron Kheifets and Halle Kiefer)
Sean Kilby is joined by comedy writer Halle Kiefer and actor/comedian Aaron Kheifets to discuss one of the most iconic (and successful) indie-horror flicks of all time, The Blair Witch Project. A pioneer in the found-footage genre, this was perhaps the first film to truly capitalize on the internet as a marketing tool. At the time of its release, many moviegoers believed the trio of actors featured in the film had actually gone missing and were presumed dead. This lead to Blair Witch...
4 “She's All That” (with Nick Hissom and Chanel Omari)
Sean Kilby is joined by musician Nick Hissom and radio personality Chanel Omari to discuss She's All That. This high school makeover film is nearly 20 years old and widely considered a classic. Sean and Nick are both interested to see how the film has aged (having not seen it in years) while Chanel already has her mind made up (having seen it more times than she can count). This loose remake of My Fair Lady was released in 1999, right in the middle of a wave of similar high school...
3 “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” (with Jorge Morales and Alex Christenson)
Sean Kilby is joined by filmmaker Alex Christenson and actor/HUHU-creative director Jorge Morales to discuss the Judd Apatow comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Alex has never seen the movie before this viewing, making him a "40-Year-Old Virgin virgin" while Sean and Jorge have watched it numerous times in the past. Released in 2005, this movie somehow feels both older and newer than its 13-year age would suggest. We now look back at this hit comedy as the film that launched a thousand Judd...
2 "Clueless" (with Taylor Strecker and Taylor Donohue)
Host Sean Kilby is joined by radio host Taylor Strecker and videographer Taylor Donohue to discuss the beloved 1995 classic Clueless. Taylor Strecker is a Clueless superfan, so her opinion on the movie was unlikely to change. But would Sean and TD see the movie in a different light after watching it for the first time in years?
