It is always interesting to watch something from your childhood and see how it lives up to your memories. I've had a mixture of such experiences. Something actually have gotten better and work on a whole different level that I didn't realize as a child. Many have aged well and are just as enjoyable now as they were decades ago. Some of it I can see how bad it is, but I can appreciate the corniness of it due to when it was made and the various elements that might have limited the production.
Then you find something that was horrible back then and is still undeniably horrible now.
Today I just rewatched the live action film version of Masters of the Universe for the first time in thirty years. I only watched it once all the way through when I was young and didn't remember it well. It didn't draw me in and from what I could remember it was bad all around.
Well, it is still just as bad. And bad on every level.
Some bad movies can be enjoyable, with a corniness that works. Prime example of this is the classic 1980 Flash Gorden movie. It is a highly enjoyable bad movie that I have never grown tired of. I know many dislike Howard the Duck, but that is a bad movie I enjoy and feel is highly under rated.
Masters of the Universe is just bad. Idiotically bad. I know why that in thirty years I have had no real desire to watch it again and there is a real good chance I will never watch it again. There is just nothing in it even remotely enjoyable. Horribly written, acted, directed with really bad fight scenes with cheap special effects that just didn't work. It was clear there was just piss poor choice after piss poor choice.
So this is one movie that held no nostalgic value for me and in the rewatching of it has left me knowing why.
