Masters Of The Universe? Seriously? Why Not Make It A Go-Bots Team-Up While You’re At It?

Near as I can make out, the ONLY Masters of the Universe themed picture in the Gabbing Geek media library.
Near as I can make out, the ONLY Masters of the Universe themed picture in the Gabbing Geek media library, and that’s assuming this guy is Ram Man and not the Juggernaut.

Did you know Sony just hired writer Christopher Yost, who penned a Thor movie or two to do some work on a Masters of the Universe script?

Do you think a Masters of the Universe movie is even remotely a good idea?  Because I sure don’t.

Alright, I get it.  Nostalgia, my oldest foe, gets a lot of butts in seats.  But ignoring that Masters of the Universe somehow posits that a bunch of guys can be masters of the entire universe without leaving the planet they live and fight on, is it even remotely possible to add something of nuance to a project like that?

Michael Bay’s Transformers certainly didn’t.  Does anyone enjoy those movies anymore?

May have liked the Dinobots.

So, in the interests of Hollywood producers, here are some old properties they may want to consider for future movies that will be phenomenally dumb but that won’t stop anyone anyway.

  • Rubik’s Cube
  • Turbo Teen
  • Twinkee the Kid
  • That “learned it from watching you” anti-drug ad
  • Hungry, Hungry Hippos
  • “Where’s the beef?”
  • The Game of Life
  • Or, anything that was the basis for a Robot Chicken sketch

You’re welcome.
