Win Masters of the Universe on Blu-ray!
October 10, 2012

To mark the release of Masters of the Universe on Blu-ray for the movie’s 25th anniversary, Warner Bros. has provided a copy of the movie for me to give away! To enter this contest, simply leave a comment below. A winner will be picked randomly from all entries on October 19. And tell your friends! Links and retweets are much appreciated.

(U.S. addresses only, no PO Boxes. Prize is one Blu-ray copy of the movie. Winner will be emailed to confirm address. If email is not answered within 24 hours or a valid email address is not provided, a replacement winner will be selected. Your email won’t be used for any other purpose.)

I’ve never seen the film, but here’s the synopsis:

Planet Eternia and the Castle of Greyskull are under threat from the evil Skeletor who wants to take over the planet. A group of freedom fighters, led by the heroic He-Man, are accidentally transported to Earth by a mysterious Cosmic Key which holds the power to make Skeletor all-powerful. Once on Earth, He-Man joins alliances with two teenagers as they attempt to find the key and return home.

And it stars Dolph Lundgren! And Skeletor is Frank Langella (although you’d never know it under that mask)! And Courteney Cox is in it somehow! (I’m guessing as one of the teens.) If you want to experience it for yourself, there’s a YouTube playlist with some clips, including one where Dolph says, “I have the power!”

Worth watching while keeping Jack Kirby’s Fourth World in mind. The parallels are there.

Ah yes I went with my friend to see this at age 12, his sister age 11 and her friend went to see some girls movie. We had to wait for ride after movie, my friend & his sister went to get refills of drinks. His sister’s friend and I talked and she gave me my first kiss.

Fun movie. Yes there were Kirby’s Fourth World influences throughout. Check out the wiki page

This is what made this movie great.

This is a classic! I used to watch the He-Man cartoons all the time when I was a kid! And when the live-action movie came out, I was super excited! It was/is a great adaptation from the cartoons. And I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it on the big screen. And now that it has been released to Blu-ray, it’s definitely a must have! and most certainly worth the upgrade! I would be really thrilled to be able to relive the great times I had seeing the movie again, after so many years. And this time, in High-Def! I would love the chance to be able to share it with my family! Thanks for the chance.

This was a prime example to me of not caring how much was wrong with a movie when I was little. I remember that absolutely none of the story was right and for some reason the only way they could imagine pulling off a he-man movie was to make it cross into Earth. However, that does not stop it from being a fond memory either and I’m thrilled to see it’s getting a bluray release!

This could be fun – we watched this when my older son was a kid and a He-Man fan. Has it really been 25 years already?

The awesomest comment I heard made about anything to do with this is in response to the recent film Robot and Frank. Someone said, “Robot and Skeletor” cuz Frank Langela plays both Skeletor and Frank and we all know that is awesome.
