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’.

Aruba? Jamaica? Ooh,THE MILKSHAKE BOOM takes ya all the way down to Kokomo and then some with the Tom Cruise bartender flick ‘Cocktail’!  We’ll get there fast and then this 1988 film directed by Roger Donaldson will take it slow…real slow!  And it may not be somewhere you’ll wanna go…


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…


Episode 028 – Heathers

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM welcome our special guest (and Robin’s sister) Erin to the podcast.  Erin is so ‘very’ with her movie selection: ‘Heathers’! This dark cult classic is directed by Michael Lehmann and stars Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, and Shannon Doherty.

We discuss our favorite Christian Slater/Winona Ryder films, dark comedies in general, and we reveal some of our high school horror stories! We also delve into a Three Stooges social thought experiment, major plot points on forgery, Christine’s hatred of ‘Army of Darkness’ and her theory that ‘Heathers’ is basically ‘Fight Club’.
