Turbo Kid Poster 2015

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!


Episode 039 – Kingpin

This week we’re talking Robert’s movie selection: the 1996 Farrelly brothers directed gross-out buddy comedy ‘Kingpin’ a.k.a. the greatest movie about bowling ever made…that’s not named ‘The Big Lebowski’!


Episode 037 – Empire Records

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM mustn’t dwell. No, not today. Because today is Rex Manning Day!

Say No More Mon Amour, because we take the trip back to 1995 to revisit the coming of age cult film ‘Empire Records’ directed by Allan Moyle and starring Liv Tyler, Renee Zellweger, Ethan Embry, Robin Tunney, and Rory Cochrane!

Since working at a record store is an entry level job, we talk about our first job experiences, the differences between the theatrical version and ‘remix fan edit’ version of this movie, some of our personal experiences meeting famous musicians, and Christine fiercely defends the musical culture of Canada from the ignorant Americans on the podcast!


Episode 029 – Love Potion No. 9

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM take our troubles to Madame Ruth (you know that gypsy with the gold-capped tooth?) and drink in ‘Love Potion No. 9’, a romantic comedy from 1992 written and directed by Dale Launer and starring Tate Donovan and Sandra Bullock!

And while we discuss topics like our favorite Sandra Bullock movies, we mainly focus on the incredibly dark under current that is this movie’s premise! For the most part, this is just a fun little rom com, but then again…
