I haven't seen this movie since the mid-80's when it came to VHS or cable. I can't remember which. All I do recall is that they got cheap and filmed most of it in modern-day 1980's America rather than on Eternia. Also, they wrapped up Courtney Cox into the proceedings, back when her claim to fame was being the girl in that one Bruce Springsteen video.
Mostly what I remember is that the femme fatale from They Live is also in it as Evil Lyn, looking way better than Teela.
|sorry, forces of goodness. She has a sort of Ursa/ Myrna Loy in "Fu-Manchu" thing going on|

Full disclosure: While I watched the cartoon, I am not much of a fan of He-Man, the Masters of the Universe concept or whatever they put in the movie in place of Orko, who I also hated, but this guy was worse. So, not a lot of scared cows for us on this viewing. So, heads up.
Also, I've been a little sick this week, so it's unlikely I'll be boozing my way through the movie, no matter how much I need it.
