Episode 59 - Pyun-tang

Welcome one and all to episode 59 of Flickers. On this episode we are looking at three films from prolific genre director Albert Pyun. Right out of the gate we dig into Pyun's debut effort, The Sword and The Sorcerer. An insanely ambitious project to start your career with/ It is done with such youthful exuberance and ingenuity it became an almost instant cult classic. Next up, we look at one of his collaborations with JCVD, 1989s Cyborg. A straightforward post-apocalyptic pot-boiler, it delivers enough foot-face-way action to keep you interested. Finally we check out Pyun's much maligned Captain America from 1990. Filled with cheese in the best possible way, it harkens back to the classic serials of the 30s and 40s much as Raiders of the Lost Ark did. Don't believe what you read on IMDB, check it out for yourself and you'll be happy you did.
