Episode 37: Trick ‘r Treat

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast, and happy Spooky Movie Month! Load up on candy and sugar this week, friends and fiends; it’s Trick ‘r Treat time! Throw on those costumes and light up those jack ‘o lanterns as Lisha tries to adopt a demon and a baby witch, Jules does her best to clamber out of the basement this week, and both of your hosts nearly murder each other over a movie that has nothing to do with Trick ‘r Treat or the brilliant Michael Dougherty before the episode even starts. Don’t forget to follow the rules of Halloween, darlings, and you should be juuuuust fine ♥

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 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 22: Just Like Heaven

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Snuggle into your own lil cloud and tune in as Lisha and Jules change the pace, because this week they’re reviewing a…romcom? And LISHA chose it?! What fuckery is this. Anywhoo, join the gals as they cover 2005’s Just Like Heaven, which of course includes Lisha crooning over Mark Ruffalo (but for legitimate reasons, she promises!), Juliet ripping apart every possible logical fallacy, and both of these idiots being baffled over how bad even decent romcom dialogue can be (you did your best, but you’re still a cheesy movie, movie). Grab a beer (David!), find a comfy couch (preferably a red, squishy one), and get cozy for one trash fire of an episode!

Episode 21: Pariah

*Disclaimer/Trigger Warning: The word ‘queer’ is used frequently in this episode and is used as a term of identification and orientation, both in the context of discussing the film and because both of your podcasters identify as big ole queers. The term ‘dyke’ is used multiple times in this episode in context of the film. The term is used in the film both as a slur and as a term of identification and orientation.

You’re also in a space where Black Lives Matter, so if you don’t share that sentiment, you’re gonna have a bad time (what the fuck are you doing here anyway?). This episode in particular celebrates Black queer artists and the Black queer experience in general.

Join Lisha and Juliet as they review the baby budget/huge impact indie film, 2011’s Pariah! Put on the kettle or pop a piece of Big Red gum and join the gals as they worship the ground that Adepero Oduye walks on, listen to Juliet as she sings praises to Bradford Young and his wicked light sorcery, and get ready for yet another psychological character study thesis from Lisha (c’mon, you know you love it). It’s Pride month, y’all, so get ready also for a Reel Question and discussion about meaningful LGBTQ films and television (of which Lisha and Jules have MANY to discuss…shocker, right?). SO. Strap in (on? Alike, girl, no, Laura, what did you do), grab your drink of choice, and get sippin’!

Episode 20: Tropic Thunder

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Join Lisha and Juliet as they review the movie within a movie, Tropic Thunder…within their podcast! (See what we did there?) Listen as they (naturally) croon over the star power of RDJ (and Jack Black, because every movie needs a character who hates movies front and center), scratch their heads over how hard Ben Stiller dropped the ball with Simple Jack (why, dude), and give credit where credit is due (btw, all of the credit goes to Alpa, Kevin, and the glorious soundtrack). Also, ALSO, brew yourself some tea or grab a cup of warm, blood-flavored corn syrup to tune into the once in a lifetime opportunity to hear Lisha say something NICE about Tom Cruise! That’s right…one time only, you limp dick fuckups 😉

Episode 19: Fido

Join Lisha and Juliet as they make their way through Juliet’s pick of the month, Fido! Secure your zombie or grab your head-coffin and listen in as Lisha tries to figure out what the actual hap is fuckening (no, really, she has no idea what this movie is), Juliet salivates over production design, and the ladies lament over how awful Bill is, we mean it, Fido, go get ‘im boy, bite his stupid face off!
