PostSubject: Masters of the Universe.    Sat Jun 15, 2013 11:15 pm

I used to hate this movie when I was a kid. I was a huge He-Man fan. But now I look back at it with rose colored nostalgia goggles and don't think it's all the bad. Yes, there is a lot wrong with the movie. But IMO, they did a lot right as well. 

Dolph Lundgren WAS He-Man. Back then there wasn't going to be a guy perfectly cast then him for that role. Frank Langella was a great Skeletor. Unlike the cartoon, Langella's Skeletor was pure evil and not campy. And I thought Meg Foster was great as Evil-Lyn. The exterior and interior shots of Castle Grayskull were good. 

But now saying that, they did a lot that I didn't like. I did not like Man At Arms or Teela. And even though I like Billy Barty I didn't want Gwildor, I wanted Orco. I guess Mettel wanted new characters to to sell their toys. In fact when I was a kid watching this in the theatre, I didn't know who most of these guys were. Why is that mouse looking guy on here? Is that lizard guy Mer-Man? Blade looked cool. But where Trap Jaw, Triclops, Ram Man, ect? 

But the biggest thing I didn't like about the movie was the Courtney Cox, my parents are dead subplot. I didn't care then and I care less now. I just tune that out every time I watch it.

I've never seen that movie but now you've made me curious, just for fun 80's style sake!

I heard about a decade ago that Ang Lee was going to do a live action Masters of the Universe movie. I guess he couldn't get funding or thought it was a bad idea. I think soon someone will do another live action movie. I mean if the Smurfs can get two live action movies then why not He-Man?

But I stand by what I said, I like a lot of the '87 Masters of the Universe. Good old fashioned Cannon Films '80s fun.

I love the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE film. They planned a sequel, but financial issues got in the way. Wee got CYBORG with jean claude van damme instead. Sad

I don't much care for the cartoon, but the movie is cheesy 80's gold.

It was interesting...it was weird...it wasn't much in the way of He-Man.  I liked it OK, but definitely a huge disappointment on many many levels.  Even the movie themed action figures kind of sucked.  Dolph Lundgren looked like He-Man at least.  Laughing
