This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM are forced to clear our good names by taking a roomful of innocent people hostage and making them watch Jose’s pick: ‘The Negotiator’!
This 1998 film, directed by F. Gary Gray, stars Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey as two maverick hostage negotiators taking on a deeply entrenched conspiracy involving murder, mayhem, and most importantly — the pension fund!

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM emerge from the dank, gas-filled sewers of NYC to bring your our above ground discussion on the even danker C.H.U.D.!  This 1984 sci-fi horror film stars Daniel Stern and John Heard and is directed by Douglas Cheek!


Episode 036 – The Thing (1982)

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM ring in the new year the only way we know how: with Kurt Russell, rampant paranoia, and graphic ultra-violence!  If you haven’t guessed it yet, Christine’s pick this week is the 1982 sci-fi classic ‘The Thing’ from the horror master himself John Carpenter!

We talk about the harsh critical reaction the film received upon release and the incredibly stiff competition it faced during the summer of 1982, which included ‘Poltergeist’, ‘Rocky III’, ‘Blade Runner’, and ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial’ just to name a few!

We also give our spoiler-free thoughts on ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, discuss the similarities between John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’ and Quentin Tarantino’s latest effort ‘The Hateful Eight’; plus Jose breaks out his conspiracy chalkboard to detail his convoluted theory on who actually is ‘The Thing’!


Episode 035 – Darkman

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!
