Hey hey we’re THE MILKSHAKE BOOM and we’re just boomin’ around to the 1968 trippy cult film ‘Head’, directed by Bob Rafelson and starring Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Peter Tork, and Michael Nesmith a.k.a. The Monkees!  Yes…The Monkees!

We also talk about the 1960’s, the history of The Monkees television show, and Jack Nicholson (who co-wrote this film by the way) and the birth of the counter culture movement!

The machines have risen and in the process the bastards destroyed our scheduled episode, however THE MILKSHAKE BOOM never go down without a fight.  So we strike back hard with our first audience selection, 1986’s ‘Maximum Overdrive’ starring Emilio Estevez!  This is the one and only film directed by famed horror author Stephen King! Did we mention that rock legends AC/DC provide the entire soundtrack?  ‘Who Made Who’ indeed.

Our topics of discussion include our favorite Stephen King books and films based on his work, and Robert gets totally schooled on killer truck movies!

This week THE MILKSHAKE BOOM participate in an extended training montage until we finally square off against ‘Best of the Best’, a classic martial arts tournament action film from 1989 starring Eric Roberts, James Earl Jones, Christopher Penn, and Phillip Rhee!

Remember that a team is not a team if they don’t give a damn about one another!  And be sure to stay until the very end as Christine presents her mind-blowing theory which very well may change how you think about the ending of this movie..FOREVER!
