Ahh, my DVD copy of the live action Masters of the Universe film finally arrived. And of course I had to er... inspect it for shipping damage. Yes, yes... that's it.

It was pretty much exactly as I recall. Fun beginning and end, but the whole part in the middle could be dropped. Basically any scene without Frank Langella needs to be dropped. Such a harmonious blend of good acting and writing! He really did have all the best lines (and capitalized on them fully).

What we need now is a collaborative film with Frank Langella, Ian McKellan, Ian McDiarmid, and Christopher Lee. All four as dignified, scheming, dramatic bad guys. And we've got to do this soon! They're not getting any younger. If that was done well, I would buy two copies of the DVD just to support the filmmakers. It doesn't even matter who the good guys are (throw in Harrison Ford as Indy or something). :)

The question is whether we can somehow work Euphoria(tm) ragdoll physics into the equation. Throw in an expensive computer-generated fight scene and a love interest for the protagonist to try to rescue, and we could very possible have the quintessential movie blockbuster.

It would be a formula so powerful, the movie tickets themselves would burst into flames upon being torn in half by the usher.
