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

Today, on The Video Store Days, we go down memory lane back to 1995 and the discovery of the 1981 animated HEAVY METAL , a film that would go on to find a place in our hearts and our fondest memories. The sequel not so much, but the first film is an outright classic. Join us as we tell our story of HEAVY METAL .

I can’t remember what I was going to the video store to get. I can tell you that it was probably a few titles that I was going to pick up, but not exactly what the titles were. As I searched the new release wall, I spotted a release on th
