Friday Watch Party: Masters of the Universe (1987)

Day:  Friday 11/20/2020
Time:  8:30 PM Central

So, this movie kinda took down Cannon Films.  It's an adaptation of a popular toy line and cartoon, and decided to appeal to no one by changing the location, characters and looks of the characters.  But it does feature an early appearance of Courtney Cox and a "is this stardom?" era Dolph Lundgren, and a Frank Langella having the time of his life.

The movie is garbage, but it does have Meg Foster as evil enchantress/ excellent-eyes-haver Evil Lyn.  And that ain't all bad.

Next week - if it's still on Prime - we're doing Working Girl.  I'll be rooting for Sigourney Weaver.

And the cast includes Billy Bartly!

Based on what I've heard of the box office returns, I'm probably one of the 6 people who saw this one in the theater.

I'm still waiting fo Skelator to return, as he promised at the end.

Billy Bartly actually gets second billing or so on this thing! I remember when it was advertised and my disappointment that it was bringing He-Man to Earth to hang out with teens.
