1982: STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KAHN in FILM REVIEW


From 1982: Long-running UK movie mag FILM REVIEW covers the impending release of STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KAHN.

Posted today because of the news that the film's composer, James Horner, has been confirmed dead after a plane crash.  

His score for this film (the movie that saved the franchise) is one of its many strengths.  It would be pointless to list all of his other multiple achievements but other Starlogged faves that he enhanced included BATTLE BEYOND THE STARS (and, in true Roger Corman tradition, recycled - along with the effects - for SPACE RAIDERS), STAR TREK III: THE SEARCH FOR SPOCK, ALIENS, THE ROCKETEER and (the one everyone will mention) TITANIC.
