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. The animation remains the

Where Have I Been For the Last Three Weeks?

To my readers: I just wanted to write to my readers here and let you know why there hasn't been much activity on the site lately. My wife has been dealing with breathing problems all of her life and on 12/1/2019 I had to rush her to the hospital because she couldn't breathe. After fighting with the staff at the hospital we went to, she was able to regain her breathing. We are not out of the woods yet (something I don't think we will ever be able to accomplish but we still strive for it), but she is making progress every day. Then, on 12/4/2019, I was awoken to a call from my brother telling me that my dad had fallen at home and was being rushed to the hospital.
