Watch: A look back at Masters of the Universe (1987)

The live-action Masters of the Universe was released unto theaters on August 7, 1987.

Much has happened since then. Courteney Cox went on to star in Friends. Frank Langella went on to play roles that didn't require quite as much prosthetic makeup (but weren't nearly as fun). And Dolph Lundgren ... well, Dolph Lundgren has been here all along, defending the universe from the forces of darkness with his mighty sword and golden locks.

Look, Masters of the Universe isn't a perfect movie. But it is absolutely a lovable one. Set that Cosmic Key back to the summer of '87 with us, why don't you?
