Episode 67 - Battle Beyond the Stars
Play • 1 hr 19 min

In this episode of the show we are observing May the 4th celebrations (albeit a bit late) by talking about the 1980 Roger Corman-produced knock-off of Star Wars, namely Battle Beyond the Stars. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the film's various connections to Lucas' movie, how it draws directly from Kurosawa, Sturges and even the Greek mythology, all in addition to hearing us praise James Cameron's art direction and James Horner's score! That's in addition to having a lot of fun at the expense of this trashy B-movie that against all odds became a cult darling over the years!

Tune in and enjoy!
