Episode 051 – Outland (1981)

Outland Poster
This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM awake from a year’s worth of cryogenic sleep to find ourselves in the very Alien-esque universe of ‘Outland’!

This 1981 science fiction western, directed by Peter Hyams, stars Sean Connery and we should probably say this up front: if you’re looking for face hugging creatures or chest bursting aliens, then you’re outta luck.

But if you’re in the mood for a working class story about the rampant drug abuse of overworked titanium miners, corporate greed, corrupt middle managers, and people exploding like overstuffed hotdogs in a microwave then this just might be the film for you!

And if we could be serious for a moment, as you’re probably aware the people of Puerto Rico desperately need your help, so please take a moment to visit http://unidosporpuertorico.com/en/ and help out if you can!

Episode 050 – Peggy Sue Got Married

Peggy Sue Got Married
On a very special episode of THE MILKSHAKE BOOM…we time travel all the way back to 1986 to relive the events of ‘Peggy Sue Got Married’!
This fantasy/drama, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, stars Kathleen Turner, Nicolas Cage, Helen Hunt, and Jim Carrey!

This episode is packed with TMB goodness: We talk about the new Stephen King ‘IT’ movie, some of our other favorite time travel movies, and we get philosophical about whether we’d go back in time and change events in our own lifetime.

Also, Robin cries, Erin eats loudly, Christine is scared of clowns, and Robert inadvertently debuts a new persona dubbed by Jose as ‘Hipster Robert’.
