The Masters Of The Universe Movie Blog!

When I started my Masters Of The Universe Classics blog focusing on the current insanely awesome toyline (which you can check out here), I figured I would use that place as an outlet for my love of the entire He-Man franchise. I have done that to some degree, what with the posting of my son's Halloween costume and the story on the previously unseen comic origin of He-Man. But I knew that there was one facet that I would be devoting more posts to than most of the other aspects: The 1987 Masters Of The Universe Movie!

I am a HUGE fan of the film. I loved it as a kid, and I still love it today. I think the film gets treated pretty unfairly by most folks. I'd venture to say that most folks- a.) have not seen the film since the original release and are basing their opinions on the "popular" view, b.) have never seen the film at all and simply like voting with the crowd, or c.) are stupid and don't realize a good film when they see it (like the folks who say Transformers 2 and G.I.Joe were good). The film is an incredibly fun romp, the visuals are amazing (even by today's standards), and the movie features one of the greatest villain portrayals of all time- Frank Langella's Skeletor.

So with this blog I'll be posting anything and everything I come across that relates to the movie: Pictures, stories, articles, thoughts, and (hopefully) interviews. If you don't like the film, this probably isn't a good place for you to spend your time... but if you do, please stop by and check it out!
