Masters of the Universe, a.k.a the He-Man movie is an odd duck of a film. By no means is it a great movie, probably not even a good movie, but damn do I love this film. Sure it’s cheesey and most of the stuff that takes place on Earth is pretty bad, but Frank Langella as Skeletor is up there was one of cinema’s most menacing villains. He took the role because his son loved the cartoon and he played it like Shakespeare (Richard III and Hamlet were his inspirations).
In the end the film is a mixed bag but one I still enjoy to this day, so in honor of it’s 30th Birthday, here are 7 things you didn’t know.
