74 - Johnny Mnemonic

Guys, we are only three years away from the future portrayed in JOHNNY MNEMONIC, a Keanu Reeves cyber-punk vehicle that confused critics so much, they just had to slap a rotten 16% Tomatometer score on it. Listen to Alex and Julio as they marvel at upcoming technological breakthroughs such as laser whips, expanded storage for your brain and a resurgence in Henry Rollins’ acting career! Spend countless minutes wondering where you know Dina Meyer from! And be blown away by the most profound monologue Keanu has ever been asked to deliver! It’s all coming in three years, but you can enjoy it right this second!

01:45:09 - 01:48:05 Johnny Mnemonic: Origins


- Alex would like to reminds everyone that THE MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN is the best Muppets movie. He would also like to brag about how the new SPIDER-MAN GAME is only available on PS4. And then he would like to confess he’s succumbed to the charms of THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW.

- Julio thinks it’s worth it to brace yourself and watch HUNGER. Then relax by checking out the GET SHORTY TV show.

- 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, we had to rearrange our original line-up, so, as of this writing we have no idea what our Christmas Bonus Episode is. Keep an eye out for the announcement, but it will definitely be out on Christmas, whatever it ends up being! Until then, let us know what you thought of Johnny Mnemonic! Are we just dense? Do we just “not get it, man”? Is a cyber-punk degree a pre-requisite to enjoy this movie? E-mail us at wearethecontrarians@gmail.com or tweet at us or facebook us and share your thoughts!
