48: Masters of the Universe

In this episode of Geek Cinema Society, Brett Stewart, David Luzader, Nicole Davis, and their guests, Cole Roulain and Ericca Long, delve into 1987’s ‘Masters of the Universe.’

Based on both the action figures and the animated TV show, “Masters of the Universe” was a cash grab, or rather, showcase for the best costumes and effects Cannon Films could muster. Unfortunately, their “best” wasn’t all that fans had hoped for. Join Brett, David, Nicole, and our guests Cole Roulain and Ericca Long of The Magic Lantern podcast as they step far outside their usual purview to examine this, uh, classic film of the ‘80s. We try to answer questions like, What are gravitonic waves? What are Monica from “Friends” and Commander Paris from “Star Trek: Voyager” doing here? Why does He-Man have a gun? How many ways to rip off the Star Wars films can you fit into one movie? Find all this and more in this episode of Geek Cinema Society: The Archive!

For listeners who would like to follow along and treat Geek Cinema Society as a film club of sorts, we will be watching ‘Die Hard’ next! Following that, we’ll be watching ‘Antman.’
