I HAVE THE POWER!!!
So most of the time you will read about how I hate re-makes and how the film industry should just digitally remaster movies and bring them back to theatres. My mind changed the other day as I was watching Masters of the Universe (1987)!
This is not the worlds greatest script and of course I was thinking to myself, why would you say that? Why would you do that? But this is a classic. As of fan of the He-Man cartoon it was great to see the hero and his villans come to life. Dolph Lundgren was the man and was a perfect pick for are muscle-bound hero. I also, had forgotten that a young Courtney Cox was in this movie.
Why should it be remade?
- The special effects and costuming was pretty good for being a 1980’s film. I can only imagine what it could look like with today’s technology and make up artist.
- There are a lot of known and unknown actors who could bring to life He-Man, Skeletor and Evil-Lyn. I want to see them in live action again!
- The original left the door wide open for a sequel. The threshold was never crossed so why not remake, or continue on with the story.
- If Star Wars of the future looks low-tech compared to the past, why not?
Do you agree or disagree with me on a new Masters of the Universe? Who could be our He-Man and our Skeletor if this dream came true?
