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 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.

Brew up a nice cuppa or light up a hefty cigar and lend your ears to Jules get geeked about backstory and detail, Lisha try to stumble her way (via improv!) through approximately seventy five thousand characters, and just so much gushing over that damn house… and the wardrobe… and the writing… and the cinemato- you know what, you get it.

Episode 23: Up In The Air

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! Check your bags and take the middle seat between Lisha and Jules as they review Jason Reitman’s 2009 film Up in the Air! It was Jules’ pick this week, and it’ll be easy to hear why as you listen to her squeak over Anna Kendrick…though to be fair, there’s a lot of praise happening over just about everything in this week’s episode. From Lisha getting really, really deep with her character analysis of Ryan (is he or ISN’T he a total twat?), the gals losing it over a-mazing cinematography, and a mutual outpouring of love over the ever formidable Vera Farmiga, pour yourself some (hopefully not black licorice flavored) tea or crack open a can, sir, and come fly with us.

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!
