This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM grab our gnome sticks, hop on our BMX bikes and take a ride to the 1980’s nostalgia fueled post-apocalyptic gorey wasteland that is ‘Turbo Kid’!

Set in an alternate 1997, this 2015 Canadian/New Zealand coproduction was directed by François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell and stars Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, and Michael Ironside!

Ho-ho-ho! Merry Christmas! Just in time to stuff your stockings, THE MILKSHAKE BOOM bring you some serious Christmas cheer with ‘Darkman’; a 1990 film directed by Sam Raimi and starring Liam Neeson and Frances McDormand!

We do our best to delve into this cult classic, but occasionally get distracted as Robert and Christine have a date to see ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ and were not going to miss it!  But we do get into the logistics of how dark ‘Darkman’ really is, Danny Elfman’s Batman-esque score, and how the plot completely hinges on a coffee stain!

Episode 033 – Hard Rain

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM is back in full effect and we play a little bit of catch up about our whereabouts before subjecting returning guest Erin to Jose’s favorite Christian Slater movie!

That’s right, a ‘Hard Rain’ is a-gonna fall as we flood your earballs about this 1998 disaster/heist film directed by Mikael Salomon and starring Christian Slater, Morgan Freeman, Randy Quaid, and Minnie Driver!

Despite three of the four hosts being very ill, THE MILKSHAKE BOOM down a bottle of Nyquil and skip our vacations just so we could unpack this highly explosive action/sci-fi/buddy cop/drug dealing alien extravaganza directed by Craig R. Baxley!  This 1990 film, starring Dolph Lundgren and Brian Benben, might be better known to most of the world as ‘Dark Angel’, but we here in North America call it ‘I Come In Peace’!
