90 - Never Been Kissed (and OUATIH)

Millennial Queen Drew Barrymore had some questionable adventures in the 90s, but her most controversial outing is probably the one where she pretends to be a teenager and an adult teacher falls for her. Adorable romance or disturbing lack of boundaries? It’s The Contrarians’ ninth Grey Area Episode, which means Alex and Julio will battle it out to decide what the Tomatometer couldn’t: Is NEVER BEEN KISSED good or bad?

Also: a lengthy spoilerific talk about ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD in the last 30 minutes of the episode. You’ve been warned!

- Go watch ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, unless you haaaaate Quentin Tarantino’s movies.

- 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, we begin The Autumn of the Remakes by tackling an original: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (1984). Until then, let us know how you feel about NEVER BEEN KISSED. Are you okay with Michael Vartan lusting after an allegedly teenage student? Do you think the Chicago Sun Times was running efficiently? Was it a mistake to cast perennial scene-stealer David Arquette opposite the dorkiest version of Drew Barrymore?
