FilmEar Episode 17: Epic Sci-Fi with Allen

The sound quality is not perfect as I visit my brother-in-law Allen on this episode and we geek out over Star Wars and other epic Sci-Fi scores.  We discuss the mastery of John Williams and his journey though a galaxy far, far away including The Force Awakens.
 That carries us into thoughts on James Horner, Craig Safan, Stu Phillips and John Carpenter with films like Star Trek II, The Last Starfighter and Big Trouble In Little China.  After the episode is a small conversation we had as we looked through some of his massive Star Wars collection.  So may the force be with you as you remember 4-LOM, not Zuckuss, is the droid (action figure alert)!
