89 - Wild Hogs
We end our Summer Road Trip by welcoming back the star of our last Summer adventure. In 2007, John Travolta recruited Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence and William H Macy for a cross-country motorcycle trip and all of America got to tag along in WILD HOGS! Listen to Alex and Julio admire the movie’s brave examination of emasculation, its ingenious pairing of Marissa Tomei with the least likely biker and its generous offering of a Hall of Fame Villain Role to Ray Liotta! PHOTO: The unaired Sons of Anarchy pilot.

Check it out!- Hans Rothgiesser, the man behind our logo, can be reached at @mildemonios on Twitter or you can email him at mildemonios@hotmail.com in case you ever need a logo (or comics) produced. And you can listen to him talk about Peruvian politics on his own podcast, NACION COMBI. Aaaaand you can also check out all the stuff he’s written on his own website. Don’t know Spanish? He also did a podcast in English called LIVING IN PERU, about immigrants in - where else - Perú.Up next, a Road Trip epilogue takes us to space! We’ll have a bonus episode and a brand new guest as we tackle PASSENGERS, the J-Law C-Pratt vehicle. Until then, let us know how you feel about WILD HOGS. Are you an emasculated man who can totally relate to these guys? Do you have a hog of your own? How much chili would you eat for Marissa Tomei?

88 - Almost Famous
On our way to the fourth stop in The Contrarians Summer Road Trip, we picked up a hitchhiker. Kinsey Jones returns to the show and joins Alex and Julio in analyzing the blandest, least insightful rock ‘n roll movie of all time! Why do people love ALMOST FAMOUS? Why did Cameron Crowe put his sort-of biopic on the shoulders of the black hole of charisma that is Patrick Fugit? And who let Jimmy Fallon in? All this plus: Alex finally comes to terms with Kate Hudson’s Oscar nomination! PHOTO: It’s all happening.

RIPLEY. More importantly, she served coffee to Theo Rossi from SONS OF ANARCHY and CAGE.- Julio got to rewatch THE MUPPETS for The Contrarians’ upcoming guest spot on Movie Reviews on 20 Qs. It’s as joyful as ever.- Hans Rothgiesser, the man behind our logo, can be reached at @mildemonios on Twitter or you can email him at mildemonios@hotmail.com in case you ever need a logo (or comics) produced.

Until then, let us know how you feel about ALMOST FAMOUS! Are you as enamored with Patrick Fugit as Cameron Crowe clearly is? Did the soundtrack resonate with you?

87 - Crossroads (2002)
The third stop in The Contrarians Summer Road Trip takes us back to that time critics prevented Britney Spears from becoming a bona fide movie star! Not even the combined powers of Shonda Rhimes, Gamora and Pensatucky could help Britney overcome The Patriarchy and we are all the poorer for it. Listen to Alex and Julio as they discuss Dan Ackroyd’s niche as a single parent, Captain Pike’s pre-Starfleet career as a hunk, and, of course, the awe-inspiring experience that is seeing The Queen of Pop perform. It’s Tamra Davis’ CROSSROADS! PHOTO: Find someone who looks at you like Britney looks at Captain Pike.

How do you rank The Holy Quartet? Also, SOCIAL DISTORTION is great.- Julio is finally making his way through the fantastic DARK MIRROR. How compelling, how depressing.- Hans Rothgiesser, the man behind our logo, can be reached at @mildemonios on Twitter or you can email him at mildemonios@hotmail.com in case you ever need a logo (or comics) produced.

Until then, let us know how you feel about CROSSROADS! Did it take you back to Britney’s heyday? Were you surprised to spot the Star Trek connections? And how about that Justin Long, huh?
