Episode 29: Codependent Lesbian Alien Seeks Same
Y'all, this black and white film from 2012 is WEIRD. But it's weird in gayest way! Do yourself a favor and grab all of your queer friends, make a *lot* of popcorn (you'll want it while watching the Jiffy Pop space ship fly around), and laugh your cute gay butts off. Then listen to Alicia and Sarah talk about it! Underrated, for sure!
Episode 28: The Miseducation of Cameron Post
We're finally doing it bbs! This classic novel was turned into a film in 2018, and Sarah and Alicia have a lot of feels about it! Tune in to hear us gush about how much the novel means to to us, how great the acting is in this movie, how sad is this world right?!?!, the perfection of Blessercize, and how freaking awesome Cameron Post is as a character. Also, we continue to stan for Sasha Lane. We're also ready for a sequel. Of the book, but also the movie. Enjoy!
Things mentioned: This *gem* of a video, the original Blessercize
! You're welcome.
Episode 27: Trigger
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Tig Notaro played an aging rock star whose relationship with her former music partner is tenuous but also with very gay undertones? Maybe you will like this 2010 Canadian film! (Tig Notaro isn't in it. One of the actors just reminds us of her.)
Episode 25: Lez Bomb
What's that you say? You've watched Home Alone too many times and you really just wish there was an over-the-top family holiday dramedy with some lesbians? Well, 2018's Lez Bomb is for you! Alicia and Sarah are pretty impressed with the woman who wrote, directed, AND starred in this film, but they have some... feelings about the storyline(s). Happy Thanksgiving! (lol not in real life)
Episode 24: But I'm A Cheerleader
YASS we're finally discussing this *classic* of the queer film canon! It's not even our first with RuPaul! But in this movie, RuPaul wears a t-shirt that says "Straight is Great," which is hilarious enough in itself. But if you come for that, stay for the ridiculous gender roles, the pastel colors, the WILD dialogue, Melanie Lynsky's New Zealand accent, Power Team Natasha Lyonne and Clea DuVall, the Queer Vigilante, and like everything else. But also, conversion therapy isn't funny. Except in this movie. Discuss.
Episode 23: Drifting Flowers
It's our first non-English-speaking film! Join Sarah and Alicia as they navigate this beautiful and at times confusing 2008 Taiwanese film featuring the cutest soft butches we've probably ever seen in film. Plus a lot of gender play! Worth it even though some of it makes no sense!
Episode 22: Hearts Beat Loud
Does your heart beat for amazing and adorable feel-good movies with some awesome queers who are played by queers? We thought so! This movie rocks, in the cool sense and the music sense. We'll be keeping our eyes on Kiersey Clemons and Sasha Lane 5ever. Also this movie has Nick Offerman and Toni Collette and Ted Danson! Happy new year, ya gays!
