Episode 35: Hereditary

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast, and happy Spooky Movie Month! Brew yourself something strong (and preferably nut free!) and join us around the séance table as we discuss Ari Aster’s 2018 feature length debut, Hereditary! Listen closely (cluck) as Lisha passionately devolves into madness over her admiration of Alex Wolff’s performance, Jules somehow squees and laments at the same time over many things (squaments? lamees?), and both of your podcasters lose their heads (cluck) over the absolutely ruthless beauty that is the cinematography of Hereditary. Strap in, but don’t get comfortable; you’re in for a demented ride this week, folks!

Episode 34: Afflicted

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast, and happy Spooky Movie Month! Grab yourself a red (wine, rooibos, platelet drink?) and turn down the lights, because the gals are thrilled to be covering Derek Lee and Clif Prowse’s 2013 found footage masterpiece, Afflicted! Cover your eyes and open your ears as Lisha waxes poetic about tragic characters, Jules gets excitable over the technical aspects of frugal filmmaking, and both of your podcasters marvel over the fact that two friends with a few cameras breathed new life into the tired ‘ole vampire genre! We’re hitting the ground running with a household favorite this month, folks, so prepare for some bloody fun!

Episode 33: Filth

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Grab a pint and a bunch of Clorox wipes (if you can find ’em!), because it’s about to get gross as the gals cover Jon S. Baird’s 2013 adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel, Filth! We swear it’s not a hallucination, Lisha really is outraged over just about everything depicted onscreen, Jules really is obsessed with James McAvoy, and both of ’em somehow find a lot of nice things to say about the filmmaking aspects of one of their lowest rated films covered on the podcast to date. Intrigued? Grab your brew and lend your ears; it’s gonna be a grimy one, folks!

Episode 32: The Devil All the Time

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! We hope that whatever you’re brewing up for yourself this week, it’s stronger than hell, because you’re gonna need it to jump into the pit of horror and spiders that is Antonio Campos’ 2020 adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock’s novel, The Devil All the Time! Pull up a seat at the prayer log (but, like, please don’t) and give Lisha a listen as she damn near goes DEEEELUSSSSIONAL over Robert Pattinson’s performance, lend Jules a helping hand as she rank-orders the pieces of shit in this film, and gasp in shock and awe as both of your podcasters actually AGREE on just about every point (because, really: everyone is evil and bad with few exceptions) (one of those exceptions being the damn movie itself). So come along and hitch a ride with us to Knockemstiff; you’ll probably be depressed by the end, but hopefully not disappointed!

Episode 31: Taxi Driver

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Order up a Coke (unless all you got is a Royal Crown Cola), hop in the back of our cab and crank up the speakers because this week, we’re coming at you with a down ‘n dirty classic: 1976’s Taxi Driver, directed by none other than the legend himself, Martin Scorsese! Lend us your ears as Lisha hate/love/hates on the film’s protagonist villain, Travis (but just straight up loves on Robert DeNiro), Juliet spouts off about wanting to punch everyone except for sweet baby angel Iris and the DP, and the girls play a rousing game of red light, green light. It’s another gritty, hard watch this week, folks, so pour yourself some peach schnapps (or, you know, a standard cuppa will do!) and don’t forget to tip your cabby (let’s be real; your Uber driver).

Episode 30: Django Unchained

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Put on the kettle and settle in for a wild wild ride out west as Lisha and Jules take on Tarantino for the first time with 2012’s Django Unchained! Get snazzy and buckled into the tooth-mobile while Lisha fights off tears of fury in order to lavish praise over Hildi/Kerry Washington, Jules adores Christoph Waltz and refuses to say Monsieur (because FUCK CALVIN CANDIE), and both of your podcasters struggle to find words to describe how much they love Django, hate most of what’s shown on-screen, and appreciate the cast and crew for committing to the horror at hand. It’s a complicated one, folks, but what else would you expect from Tarantino? Grab your brew from the saloon and strap in!

Episode 29: Tucker and Dale vs Evil

*Hello, dear listeners! Thank you for your patience; we know many of you were excited about this week’s episode, and we appreciate feeling supported as we took a few days off from, well, everything, in order to allow ourselves the time and space to begin processing the loss of the ineffable Chadwick Boseman on August 28, 2020. From the outpouring of love we received during Marvel Movie May, we know that this is a difficult loss for a lot of you as well. We love you all, and we’re all in this together; remember to hold strong (or, as our King T’Challa would say, Yibambe ♥).

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Sit across the table from Lisha and Jules for some nice Earl Grey (but maybe avoid the chamomile!) as they dig into Eli Craig’s 2010 horror-comedy, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil. Whether you’re studying for college exams (you cute college kid, you), goin’ fishin’, or on a drive to your vacation home, you’re sure to enjoy the sound of Lisha SHOUTING into the abyss for over an hour about just how much she cannot tolerate the sight of Chad’s face, the joyous racket of Juliet’s glee over just how much pain she caused Lisha with this week’s watch, or perhaps you’ll take pleasure in listening to both of them simply melt over Alan Tudyk (and Dale!). You’ll never know which part you’ll like best unless you grab yourself a brew or a mug, settle in, and start a-trudgin’ through the woods with your Screen Tea Podcasters!

Episode 29 Delay

Hi, folks. Episode 29 (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) will be temporarily delayed, air date TBD.

We know that our hearts wouldn’t be in it if we went ahead and recorded as scheduled. Not right now, not yet. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of Chadwick Boseman, and our thoughts are with his family and loved ones, the Marvel family, and all of you who are struggling with the loss of a real-life hero along with us. May he Rest in Power 🖤

Thank you all for your understanding, and we’ll be seeing you soon enough.

– Lisha & Jules

Episode 28: You Can Count On Me

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Jump on a bus and head to the small town of Ridiculous Podcasters, because this week Lisha and Jules are covering Kenneth Lonergan’s directorial debut, 2000’s You Can Count on Me! Let us all sit down for a mildly (wildly?) uncomfortable lunch together while Lisha spirals down a pit of Lonergan-dialogue obsession, Jules fights tooth and nail to pronounce ANYTHING related to the damn DIRECTOR of the film, and both of them cock their heads in confusion over Brian (seriously, what the fuck?). Actually, if you just want to grab some more refreshments, actually, and prepare yourself for some Mark Ruffalo, Laura Linney and Rory Culkin adoration, all you have to do is settle in and hit play…actually.

Episode 27: Jojo Rabbit

Get ready to hunt some carrots with Lisha and Jules this week as they review the brilliant Taika Waititi’s 2019 genre-bending war/dramedy/satire, Jojo Rabbit! Lend the ladies your ears as Lisha simultaneously giggles and holds back sobs over the brilliance of Waititi’s use of foreshadowing and handle on female characters, as Jules breaks character to get her feelings all over the place (namely regarding Sam Rockwell, those gut-punch moments, and the CHILDREN), and as both of your podcasters trip over themselves cracking up over the physical comedy of Taika and Alfie Allen (truly, the hidden gem of this treasure of a film). Whip up your beverage of choice, pull your chair up to the table, and let’s get to dancin’, shall we?
