On Episode 81 of The Film ‘89 Podcast, Richie and Skye are face to face with a genetically engineered tyrant as former guest host and friend of the Film ‘89 team, Bill Scurry, joins the guys in person to discuss one of their all-time favourite films, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) which celebrates its 40th anniversary the same week this episode was recorded. The guys discuss the making of the second big screen Trek outing following their discussion, 3 years ago, of Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979). Following production troubles on that film, significant changes were made behind the scenes when the sequel was put into production. The stellar cast including Paul Winfield and Ricardo Montalban, are discussed as is James Horner’s phenomenal score and a near perfect script, elements that come together to make a film held by many Trek fans as the high point of a franchise that’s been going since 1966.
