Much like those of the current era, 1980s cartoons were created to sell toys. But rarely did shows cross over into live-action flicks on the big screen. In 1987, action-figure shill He-Man and the Masters of the Universe reached for a star too far away and bombed. What remains is an amazing film to watch while drinking. This week, Trash Film Debauchery and friends will travel to Mackenzie’s Pub to revel in this total shitshow of yore. The craptacular masterpiece stars the expressionless Dolph Lundgren in the titular role. With his friends, Man-at-Arms and Teela, he travels from Eternia to Earth to stop the villainous Skeletor (Frank Langella, who took the part for his son). The story involves sonic keys that open doors to universes using synthesizer sounds, and somewhere along the way a young Courteney Cox shows up. Don’t think about it too hard, just order up a beer. Co-hosts Indeed Brewing will be at the party to provide just that.
