A Movie Review of Star Trek: Beyond

Directed by Justin Lin and produced by J. J. Abrams, starring Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, John Cho and others, Star Trek Beyond is nothing short of a high-action, fast paced and suspenseful film with aliens, starships, and new worlds. This movie moved on from where we left off in Star Trek Into Darkness and throws obstacles such as gazillions of ship swarms and a dangerous nebula in the way of the crew on board the USS Enterprise.

Film Scores: John Williams Composing for Star Wars Episode VII

After all, Star Wars sure wouldn’t be Star Wars without Williams putting the emotion into the film, and I’m positive that there are quite a few people who would agree with me heartily on that.
