The Secret of the Sword

"I've got that flying horsey in my sight" He-Man & the Masters of the Universe was a massive hit toy line and a massive hit animated TV series. He-Man ruled the airwaves in the 80s and it would only make sense to not only make a feature length theatrical film but also a new spin-off series with a new character! The film follows Price Adam/He-Man as he embarks on the search for his twin sister. Turns out that a new villain by the name of Hordak had kidnapped He-Man's twin sister shortly after birth and taken here to another dimension on a planet called Etherea. No one knows what happened to the little girl, Adora. But, with this information and with a magical sword, He-Man is on his way to find Princess Adora.  What much can be said of "The Secret of the Sword", it's not necessarily a film for cinemas as there is nothing special enough about the movie for it to warrant a theatrical release, other than the length of the film.

Trailer Park: Braindead (aka Dead Alive) Trailer

This is a trailer that I have never seen before. It is a British trailer (I think) and it is really funny.

I got my first job when I was 16 years old. A friend of mine started working at the local Jewel-Osco, which is a grocery store chain in the Chicago land area. I knew that I was going to need money if I wanted to go out or buy something, so I put in an application and was hired shortly thereafter.

A week after being hired I got my first ever paycheck (We got paid weekly which was a plus.) I went home and my mother asked me what I wanted to do with this check. I said that I wanted to go to Best Buy and pick out a movie on VHS to buy.

So she took me to Best Buy and I walked around for a bit before setting my eyes on Dead Alive (Braindead in the rest of the world.) The cover art was striking: A woman with her mouth open, but also pulling her open lips apart from the sides to reveal a small skull. The cover art made no sense, but it was a film that I had to have.

When I watched it that weekend I was floored. The film was fantastic. The comedy, the camera work, the gore. Oh my God, the gore. I fell in love with the film on my first viewing and I hope and pray that one day we will get a special edition of this film as well as Jackson's other works.
