When Classic Cartoons Get the Live-Action Treatment

Masters of the Universe (1987)

Former ‘Rocky IV’ villain Dolph Lundgren was tapped to play the most powerful man in the universe, in this adaptation of the popular toy line/animated series. Unfortunately, He-Man’s stock had fallen considerably by 1987, and the film wasn’t as a big a hit at the box office. Still, Frank Langella’s Skeletor alone makes this live-action He-Man flick worth watching.
