Movie Meltdown - Episode 134
This week we are back at the Fright Night Film Fest/FandomFest with more crazy stories from our table, plus we interview our special guest - director Albert Pyun (The Sword and the Sorcerer, Cyborg, Captain America)! Plus he sits in for our Sofa Theater feature: 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Plus in between the times Robert Carradine keeps bum rushing the mic, we discuss… Dar when he was younger, Asian-American directors, having a Captain America tattoo, a boring season of True Blood, bending the program around your head to mimic Cinerama, a gaggle full of hot guys, a slave to the comic book, The Misfits, Igor, Godard films, slammin’ nurses, Jean Claude Van Damme’s dad and Charlie Sheen’s mom, I swear to god if I hear that Pokemon theme song one more goddamned fucking time, the cheesy Nacho cheese joke, there was no place to develop film on the island, Wizards of Waverly Place, Jennifer Garner, you can’t buck the system, without paying a price, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, Edward Furlong, directing vs. making movies, more die talk, there’s gonna be a throw down, Boba Fatt, whatever kind of weird porn you got - there’s a nitch for it, the smack down that almost went down, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, working with Darren McGavin, John Carpenter just winked at me, you can’t quit on your first film, the dawn of man is also the dawn of cinema, Electrolux, working with Dennis Hopper, having no respect for actors that were on Wings, that’s one of those costumes - you don’t put it on, you pour it on, Captain America in Yugoslavia and our weekend of adventures with Tiffany Shepis.
Spoiler Alert: Can you spoil 2001 if you still haven’t figured it all out? Either way, possible spoiler alert.
“I think the great advantage Kubrick had, beyond the strength of vision and the will that he had…was that he didn’t have to cast Steven Seagal.”
