Brian and Cargill prove they have the powwwwwerrrr to genuinely love even notoriously bad films as their Summer of 1987 series takes them to Eternia to do battle with Masters of the Universe.

One of the trio of films that shuttered Cannon Films, Masters of the Universe is a marvel of schlock, but do we dare say it's the best movie ever adapted from a line of toys? We dare anything! If anything, Masters of the Universe is a must-see for the brilliant, no-prisoners performance of Frank Langella alone.

All this, plus a deep dive into the confounding paradox of a hero living in Castle Grayskull, where Charles Bronson should have been cast, and why we think Blade needs to stay off IMDB.

Download, listen, and share. Until next week, good journey!
