The 1987 film Masters of the Universe
, based on the popular line of Mattel toys, stars muscle man Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, an alpha male warrior with one powerful sword. An over-the-top Frank Langella plays the deliciously despotic Skeletor, who seizes the planet Eternia and its mystical fortress, Castle Grayskull, in a dastardly scheme to become ruler of the Universe. Things get weird when He-Man and his team attempt to save the day, only to be transported to modern day Earth. Here he enlists the aid of two teenagers (one of them is Courteney Cox) in his mission to save the cosmos. The Strange Brew division of the Webster Film Series screens Masters of the Universe
at 8 p.m. tonight at the Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood; 314-241-2337 or www.webster.edu/film-series
). Tickets are $5.
