Masters of the Universe

My mom loved this film … sorta.

To be honest, she wasn’t as enamored with Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langella throwin’ down in a beefcake vs. bone daddy battle as I was, but she did live for one scene, stopping to applaud as I wore out the VHS.

It comes when Skeletor and his minions arrive on Earth, where a radiant Courtney Cox will lead the human resistance.

Raining down fire ‘n destruction, the invaders blow up an H & R Block office, which warmed the heart of my mom, a former employee of the tax world’s Evil Empire.

“Burn, baby, burn!”
