67 - Be Cool

Is there anything cooler than being meta? Yes: being John Travolta and being meta at the same time. Alex and Julio arrive at the last stop in The Summer of Travolta as they contend with a sequel that wasn't content to be a sequel. BE COOL is a sequel about sequels. And understanding that is what makes the difference between actually being cool and being someone who gave this movie a bad rating in the Tomatometer. Vincent Vega and Mia Wallace get together on the dance floor, for crying out loud! James Woods gets shot! Repeatedly! And don't even get us started on the gone-too-soon career of Obvious-Travolta-Heir Christina Milian...

- Alex is way behind on showing A QUIET PLACE some love. Better late than never!

- By now, the EPIC FILM GUYS episode about MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT has been out for a few weeks. Julio is still a big part of it. So find it, listen to it, enjoy it - and tell your friends! (and tell the Epic Film Guys, so maybe they'll invite us back).

- I'd be surprised if you can find UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB playing anywhere these days, but if you do, don't hesitate and go watch it! If not, check it out as soon as it hits streaming.

- 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.

Up next, THE TRAVOLTIES! We'll wrap up The Summer Of Travolta with an Awards Ceremony worthy of the past four months. Until then, please rate/review/subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, TuneIn, Spotify, you know the drill. And let us know what you think about BE COOL. Does it sully the legacy of GET SHORTY or improve on it? E-mail us at wearethecontrarians@gmail.com or tweet at us or facebook us. Get your tuxes ready!
