Battle Beyond the Stars (1980)

Jimmy T. Murakami and Roger Corman direct George Peppard, Robert Vaughn and Richard Thomas in this space set remake of The Magnificent Seven.

Cheap and cheerful Star Wars cash-in. Fun and undemanding. With a nice cast of C-List faces. There are far worse ways to spend an afternoon and you get to see glimpses of James Cameron’s apprenticeship in production design and Bill Paxton’s (off screen) carpentry.
