Screen Tea Podcast: Annihilation

Natalie Portman in Annihilation (2018, IMDb).

Welcome to Screen Tea Podcast! This week, your hosts are stepping into The Shimmer (aka 2018) to review Alex Garland’s visually stunning sci-fi mind-twister, Annihilation!

Prepare yourself for what is essentially a half-hour venting session as Lisha vehemently and aggressively questions what the hell supposedly makes this a good movie, Jules remains insistent that the movie is cool, dammit, and both of your hosts find themselves wheeze-laughing, admiring the visuals, and coming up with alternative movie taglines.

Also included are mini-reviews for Alex Garland’s 2021 film Men, and Shawn Levy’s 2021 film Free Guy…because we do what we want, don’t question us. This one’s a ball, y’all (OR MAYBE IT’S JUST A TRICK OF THE LIGHT? FFS, WHO WROTE THIS SHIT), so snuggle up with your other-worldly doppleganger and enjoy!

Happy listening!

Your hosts Lisha and Jules are an artist and a mental health professional. Have fun figuring out which is which, but also…be careful not to mess it up. They hail from Michigan, love movies, and served tacos at their lesbian wedding.
