76 - Gigli

Oh my god, you killed Martin Brest’s career!!! You bastards!!!! Awards Season is upon us and what better way to celebrate it than by rescuing an infamous “turkey” (yeah, yeah, we know) and telling the world about how awesome it actually is? Listen to Alex and Julio as they wonder if America simply couldn’t handle two extremely attractive people having frank conversations about sex! Learn just how much we’ve been wasting Justin Bartha’s talent over the past decade! And marvel at Ben Affleck’s unbeatable game when it comes to gay women! It’s a Razzie Winner that should’ve been an Oscars Winner!

- Alex is five episodes into the long defunct MAGIC CITY. So far, it’s a B+.

- Australian listeners! Our buddy Chas Fisher has a short in your FLICKERFEST film festival. It’s called THE SNIP and Chas wrote it. There, I’ve set you on the right path.

- Oh yeah, and why not throw up a link to The IMDB Journey Podcast, since we played their promo and all.

- 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 swing from The Razzies to The Oscars, as we tackle SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE! Until then, let us know if you’re one of those rare moviewatchers who liked GIGLI. Or if you are one of those who suffered through it voluntarily. Or if you know what Martin Brest is up to. E-mail us at wearethecontrarians@gmail.com or tweet at us or facebook us and share your thoughts!
