Masters Of The Universe: Revelation Part 1
The opening is cheesey. The voiceover sounds like Tim Curry. The art of the opening looks like 80s fan art. The animation of the main action is ugly CGI. This is a Kevin Smith sequel series. Cringer talks. Teela tantrums and makes it all about her.
The planet is a place of anger. The baddies do vile things. The latest He Man v Skeletor battle ends in an overdue consequential manner. Teela is purposefully negative and has unfounded rage. Skeltetor wishes He Man ill. Adam is a teenager. Things get acrimonious and detrimental and go very badly. This was infuriating and the planet's denizens are damned. Faker shows up. Evil-Lyn lives up to her name. This has lost potential. There is alpha male nationalism and fear of making the wrong decision. There is no political capital.
Man At Arms punches a horse. What is Greyskull? This was infuriating. Battlecat/Cringer barely features. He Man dies, kinda sorta.
Moss Man dies. What did He Man/Skeletor do to ruin the planet and split the power sword? The Queen knew Adam was He Man, the King didn't and reacts badly and banishes Man At Arms. Teela makes it all about her. Teela's abandoment of her duty and temper tanturm annoy. Stinkor shows up. Has He Man done his final decisive act? Maybe? This was criminal ineptitude. Teela whines that she was not consulted or invited. There is no more magic.
Teela's mission is plagued by mistakes and more regrettable mistakes. Teela's a mercenary. Tri-Klops has redone Snake Mountain and formed a cult. Things unfold disastrously. The presumed dead Skeletor is mocked by his former minions.
How long has it been since the final battle? Evil-Lyn and Teela become allies along with Beast Man and Orko and Man At Arms to fix things. Orko was also banished. There is momentary doubt and effrontery and irritation. There is ignorance, arrogance, contempt, dislike and bad tempered discussion. The techno-cult lurks as does MerMan. There are so many hints about Teela's true origin/destiny that it becomes a joke. There is a magnitude of misdemeanours. Teela puts a malign interpretation on everything and deliberately rubbishes everything.
This causes no ludicrous joy. TPTB are delighted with themselves. This was lacklustre and glaringly tragic. There are no terrifying incidents. This was relatively dreary. Teela and co are insolent and moody types. This was not a cultural moment. The original cartoon was not innovative and its influence does not still reverberate. This fades into irrelevance and the original is long forgotten. There is unpleasant subtext to this. Evil-Lyn is a pernicious type. It is absurd to expect her to change. Skeletor is bitter and self-satisfied.
Evil-Lyn is rooted in belligerence. Where is Manteena? Orko appears to die. There is a toyline himage. One is indifferent to this. This was not zeitgeist defining. This was irredeemably terrible. Misjudgments are made. This was garishly aggressive and it is unedifying.
This was a baroque. This was not a functional narrative. This is replete with Teela ranting. There are terrible repercussions to her mission. There is fractious debate. Evil-Lyn cultivates everything putrid. She and Skeletor are terrible, nasty, truly pathetic, reckless, sad, lazy, incompetent, clueless, third rate and phoney lying liars. There is zero chance they will ever change.
Evil-Lyn is a hypocrite who deserves ignominy. Teela is combative and argumentative. This was staid and reduced to insignificance. Teela acts like a nut. Teela presumed bad faith and was right. This is banal, boring and lacking in relevance. It all comes to a tragic cliffhanger.
Mark Hamil voices Skeletor. Adam was in heaven and no longer has a concept of his secret identity. Adam dies, again - maybe. Skeletor comes back because of course he did. This was not even potentially plausible. Skeletor has psychotic excitement. This has a litany of failings and there is synchronised whingeing. Evil-Lyn and BeastMan go to the bad, again. Liam Cunningam voices Man At Arms. It is better than the crappy 'She Ra' reboot.

This is already cancelled. A magician conscientiously annoys and there are rancorous conflicitng interests. His troubles do not concern me. The way Cameron Black perceives his palce in the world annoys. He's intentionally reckless and rage inducing. His crew bitch. Cameron ends up disgraced after a drunken car crash which also reveals that he has an identical twin brother.
Cameron pulled off his big magic stunts with the help of his twin Jonathan. His twin was the one in the drunken car crash and he claims it was all a set up honey trap and that a porno lipped woman set him up. The fact a woman is dead doesn't really matter to either twin. The whole plot set up is stupid. Jonathan goes to jail. A year passes. A private jet blows up and Cameron stomps into the FBI to 'help' and demand that they get Jonathan out of jail.
Lenora Crichlow of 'Being Human', Vinnie Jones of 'The Cape', Penn & Teller and Amaury Nolasco of 'Prison Break' star. The private jet blowing up was a copy of one of Cameron's tricks. There is bad green screen and why is Cameron so sure it is all abut him? This was miserable, sordid and stupid? Who is porno lips? Who was the dead woman and who killed her?

Reclaiming Amy (2021)
I watched this BBC2 documentary. I don't believe a word Amy Winehouse's grasping parents utter. Amy unravelled, her mother admits doing nothing. Mitch needs to piss off. Her parents were and are useless and like to paw through Amy's belongings.
