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!

- Julio is hooked on ComiXology Unlimited - a great deal for comic book lovers.

- As teased in the last episode, we had a delightful time talking about the THE MUPPETS (2011) with Sam from Movie Reviews in 20 Qs. 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? E-mail us at wearethecontrarians@gmail.com or tweet at us or facebook us and share your thoughts!
