Gunpowder Milkshake is a title that reminds me of ice cream companies referring to their products as “concretes.”  If your product doesn’t sound appetizing, how do you expect to get anyone to try it?  If it’s a movie, maybe you need to hire a cast that includes Karen Gillan, Carla Gugino, Lena Headey, Michelle Yeoh, […]
