THE MILKSHAKE BOOM are back this week to take a sneaky peek at the sweeping romantic epic 'Far and Away'!

This 1992 film, directed by Ron Howard and starring real life husband and wife duo (at the time anyway) Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, tells the quintessentially American story of immigration, sexual repression, bare knuckle boxing, chicken plucking, and the unquenchable thirst for real estate!

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM have awaken from our collective St. Patty's day hangovers just in time to realize we've been called by God to discuss the 1999 cult film 'The Boondock Saints' written and directed by Troy Duffy.

Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and Sean Patrick Flanery (Powder) star as the MacManus Brothers/the titular Saints meanwhile Willem Dafoe (Platoon) plays F.B.I. agent Paul Smecker and gives a Nic Cage level performance that has to be seen to be believed.

Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police! Woop-woop! That's the sound of THE MILKSHAKE BOOM!

We're back this week discussing Jose's movie selection 'Attack the Block'; a British sci-fi horror comedy from 2011 written and directed by Joe Cornish and starring John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz) and Jodie Whittaker (Doctor Who)!

Feb 23, 2018

It looks like its going to be one of those days as THE MILKSHAKE BOOM are back to fight to the bitter end with Robert's pick: 'Three O'Clock High'!

This 1987 teen comedy / western(?) is directed by Phil Joanou and stars Casey Siemaszko as everyman Jerry Mitchell and Richard Tyson as the big bad bully Buddy Revell.

 

Feb 9, 2018

This week, things get real for THE MILKSHAKE BOOM as we discuss Robin's movie selection: 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople'!

This 2016 New Zealand film, directed by Taika Waititi of 'Thor: Ragnarok' fame, stars Sam Neill as the gruff, but functionally illiterate Uncle Hector and Jullian Dennison as the hip hop loving juvenile delinquent Ricky Baker!

 

Jan 26, 2018

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM strap on our top secret rocket packs and blast off towards that giant zeppelin in the sky to discuss the 1991 cult classic 'The Rocketeer'!

This film is directed by Joe Johnston and stars Billy Campbell as Cliff Secord/The Rocketeer, Jennifer Connelly as his love interest Jenny Blake, and Timothy Dalton as the villainous Neville Sinclair, the third best actor in Hollywoodland!

 

Jan 12, 2018

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM is back for the first podcast of 2018!

This week is Robert's pick  and he's brought a little known Arnold Schwarzenegger film from 1986 entitled 'Raw Deal'!

John Irvin directs this mayhem inducing, cake throwing, mob infiltrating little gem. 

And if come away from anything from this movie its that "You should not drink and bake."

 

Dec 17, 2017

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM are back to discuss 'Overboard' starring real life Hollywood couple Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell!

This 1987 romantic comedy (???), directed by Garry Marshall, is Robin's pick and could very well be one of the darkest films ever covered in TMB history.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

 

 

Dec 1, 2017

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM shake off our post Thanksgiving turkey comas and strap on our roller blades  so we can hack the planet with Jose's movie pick: 'Hackers'!

This futuristic 1995 cyberpunk film, directed by Iain Softley, stars Jonny Lee Miller, Angelina Jolie, Fisher Stevens, Matthew Lillard, and Lorraine Bracco!

Nov 11, 2017

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM is back this week with a listener request!

Ross Brown (a.k.a. @BossCaptainRoss on Twitter) has selected 1989's 'Tango & Cash' which stars Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell in the title roles!

This is possibly the first, only, and best action/comedy/buddy cop/framed for murder/prison break/bromance/revenge flick ever made!

Okay, let's do this!

Oct 28, 2017

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM are back just in time to wrap up our spectacularly spooky Halloween themed month of episodes with 1995's 'The Mangler'!

This film, directed by master of horror Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and based on the short story by Stephen King, stars Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street), Ted Levine (Silence of the Lambs), and a giant immobile homicidal demon possessed laundry folding machine from hell!

With a distinguished horror pedigree and completely plausible premise like that, how can this film go wrong?!

Oct 20, 2017

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM is back with the second entry into our Spooky Halloween Spectacular Extravaganza 2017!

This week we're talking about Robin's pick: a British supernatural horror film from 2012 called 'The Woman in Black'!

Based on the horror novella and long running play of the same name, this Hammer produced film stars a dapper, yet depressed Daniel Radcliffe and is directed by James Watkins!

Plus, we discuss Erin's controversial (and convincing) theory on the true ending of this movie!

 

Oct 13, 2017

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM is back on this fine Friday the 13th, so we thought what better scary movie to discuss than...'Maniac Cop 2'!?

This 1990 action horror film written by Larry Cohen and directed by William Lustig stars Robert Davi, Claudia Christian, Laurene Landon, Bruce Campbell, and Robert Z'Dar as the maniac cop Matt Cordell!

And be sure to stay until the end credits of this movie or else you'll miss out on the pure genius that is the 'Maniac Cop 2 Rap'!

Oct 6, 2017

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!

 

Sep 22, 2017

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'.

Sep 8, 2017

THE MILKSHAKE BOOM is back this week in our self-driving cars on our way to the seedy underbelly of late '70 Los Angeles with 'The Nice Guys'! 

We trip through the convoluted plot of this 2016 neo-noir film, directed by Shane Black and starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, which involves the most vile, exploitive and disgusting industry on the planet...that's right this movie is a scathing indictment of those colluding fat cats in the Detroit automotive industry!  Oh, also the porn industry is mentioned a couple of times too!

Aug 25, 2017

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM take a trip to the therapist to work through our issues with 1989's 'Vampire's Kiss'!

This bizarrely dark comedy, directed by Robert Bierman, nearly defies description, but we can say that it does star Nicholas Cage at the peak of his Cage-y powers!

Christine is back this episode, and Robin's sister Erin stops by to weigh in with her amazing theory on what really is going on in this film!

I would tell you more, but I seem to have misfiled my notes....

Aug 11, 2017

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM are blackmailed by the F.B.I. to infiltrate the plot of the explosively violent 'Stone Cold'!

This 1991 film, directed by Craig R. Baxley, stars ex-football player turned mullet model Brian "The Boz" Bosworth in his debut performance as the rogue-ish Alabama cop 'Joe Huff'. 

Joe's mission is to infiltrate a Mississippi biker gang lead by 'Chains Cooper', played by character actor Lance Henriksen, before Chains and his crew can storm the state capital to free one of their own while also assassinating a major political candidate 'cracking the whip' on biker gangs in the process.

Does Joe fail miserably at his job like no protagonist has ever failed before?  Is he the worst cop in MILKSHAKE BOOM history?!  Tune in to find out!

Also, be sure to subscribe on ITunes and leave a review!  And remember, "God forgives, but THE MILKSHAKE BOOM doesn't!"

Jul 27, 2017

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM hop in the pick-up truck, flip on the radio and keep it moving into the deep dark abyss that is 'Southbound'! This 2015 horror anthology film is Robin's pick and is directed by Radio Silence, Roxanne Benjamin, David Bruckner, and Patrick Horvath!

We also talk about other anthology movies, functional illiteracy, and Amazon drones that serve you court papers!

Speaking of which, I'm required to tell you that this episode was not brought to you by the fine folks from Amazon Prime! Furthermore, the views and opinions expressed by THE MILKSHAKE BOOM do not necessarily reflect those of any of our potential listeners; especially 'Wonder Woman' actor and all around superstar Chris Pine.

Jul 13, 2017

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!

Jun 29, 2017

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!

Now you're probably asking yourself, 'Self, what does C.H.U.D. even stand for? Could it be Cherubic Hungry Udder Drinkers?  Or perhaps Cranky Hungover Uber Drivers?'

Good guesses, but no!  This movie is all about Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers, my friend, and boy howdy does it got a lot of 'em!  Yes, I would have also accepted Contamination Hazard Urban Disposal, but c'mon that's just boring!

This cinematic selection comes courtesy of our listener Kevin!  So, if you have a movie suggestion, be sure to let us know and we just might work your film into our regular rotation!  Also, like us on Facebook and subscribe and leave a review on ITunes if you'd be so kind!

It's time...for a new episode of THE MILKSHAKE BOOM!

This week grab your rocket launcher, exploding suitcase, and your baby armadillo because we are taking our airboats all the way down river to 'Invasion U.S.A.', cowboy!

This explosive 1985 Chuck Norris flick, directed by Joseph Zito and produced by Cannon Films, is the pinnacle of low budget '80s movie excess! 

In fact, excess might be an understatement.  Here's a good rule of thumb:  If it appears on screen, there's a good chance it'll probably explode.  Car?  Explode!  A shopping mall?  Explode!  An ENTIRE SUBURB...during Christmas time?!?  EXPLODE!!

Jun 1, 2017

The stars have aligned and THE MILKSHAKE BOOM have returned!

This week we catch you up on why we're back, what we've been up to since April of last year, movies we've watched, and where the show is going from here.

It's good to be back, y'all!

Be sure to subscribe on Itunes and suggest movie titles you'd like for us to watch!

Hey everybody! You've been listening to the greatest movie podcast ever made!

And, boys and girls, we don't know how to break it to you, but THE MILKSHAKE BOOM is going on an extended hiatus...but its for good reason!

In this episode, we detail the hows and whys of this decision, give our final movie recommendations, and we also talk about some of our favorite TMB moments!

Thank you all again for listening and we hope you continue to follow us in our future endeavors.

And remember, the greatest trick THE MILKSHAKE BOOM ever pulled was convincing the world it didn't exist...and like that it's gone.

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!

Before we jump into our audience selection, we briefly discuss 1980's nostalgia films like 'Kung Fury' and then delve deeply into our most ideal apocalypse scenerios to live through!  

And, in a TMB first, we are joined by a live studio audience!  Unfortunately, said audience quickly turns on Jose and his bizarrely detailed philosophy on zombies!
