Why Would Anyone Want To REMAKE Masters Of The Universe?

It's already perfect. It does not need to be improved. Go make something new and stop thinking you can even approach the greatness of the original. What hubris to believe you can fly so close to the sun. Even the attempt angers me.

Of course, this recent live-action film isn't the first movie in the Masters of the Universe franchise. Action star Dolph Lundgren previously portrayed the lead role of He-Man in the 1987 flick, which fell flat with fans and critics alike. Directed by Gary Goddard, the film only grossed $17.3 at the box office — against its budget of $22 million — on its way to a present-day approval rating of 17% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Of course, there's a one-word answer to that question: "Money" ;-)

But you can never recapture this kind of movie magic. Never. Who could ever do Skeletor like Frank Langela? It will fail and they will all look silly for the attempt.
