The following video clip justifies why “Throwback Thursday” exists.
Masters of the Universe features worlds from other dimensions, the epic battle of good vs. evil, exciting action and a cast that includes Dolph Lundgren (He-Man), Frank Langella (Skeletor) and the fresh-faced 23-year-old Courteney Cox (Julie Winston).
After helping shape the world of Asgard, “Thor” scribe Christopher Yost is now ready to head to Eternia to help He-Man return to the bigscreen.
Sony Pictures and Escape Artists have tapped Yost to do a rewrite on its reboot of “Masters of the Universe.”

The major motion picture Masters of the Universe (believe it or not) from the ’80s set a very high bar for the current reboot to reach towards.
It defined this story and characters for entire generations.
This is a treasured franchise and the movie did essentially everything right for the time it was written and produced. Its clever adaptation, perfect settings, optimistic innocence, danger in the form of shooting lasers and a floating throne and the casting of known and unknown actors and actresses are just a few reasons why this film is an important superhero classic.
As your blogging friend, I highly-recommend this movie from a past dimension/1987!
