Masters of the Universe (1987)

Masters of the Universe Quote: “The final moment has come. All the forces of Greyskull, all the powers in the universe will be vested in me! Me! And you will cease to exist!” – Skeletor

Some commissioners present Shat The Movies with films they admire, hoping for low wipe scores and eternal glory in the Pantheon of Shat. Others serve us straight from toilet, understanding their favorite films are turds and deserve a whole roll of TP. Listener Will C. is the latter.

We’re kicking off 2022 with “Masters of the Universe,” a movie that makes “Star Wars” look like irrefutable science and makes “Conan the Barbarian” feel Oscar-worthy. This one’s a real battle between our love of campy schlock and the hard truth that big budgets don’t always mean good cinema.

Was the Sorceress perfection or pointless? Should the movie have focused on Earth or Eternia? Was Dolph Lundgren a god or a goober? Is this Courteney Cox in her prime, and how do you pronounce Frank Langella? The Shat Crew debates all this and more while agreeing on one thing: Fuck Gwildor.”

Plot Summary: “Masters of the Universe” When the evil Skeletor (Frank Langella) finds a mysterious power called the Cosmic Key, he becomes nearly invincible. However, courageous warrior He-Man (Dolph Lundgren) locates inventor Gwildor (Billy Barty), who created the Key and has another version of it. During a battle, one of the Keys is transported to Earth, where it is found by teenagers Julie (Courteney Cox) and Kevin (Robert Duncan McNeill). Now both He-Man and Skeletor’s forces arrive on Earth searching for the potent weapon.
