Masters of the Universe

I honestly don't know how many people remember the movie Masters of the Universe starring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man, the hero of the He-man cartoons. It was a live action movie from 1987. It tells the story of what happens in a dream world of Julie Winston, played by Courtney Cox (of Friends fame). It tells the story of how Gwildor has a magical key that can allow him to transport to different dimensions. To get away from Skeletor played by Frank Langella, Gwildor takes himself, He-man, Man-at-Arms, and Teela to Julies home town. By doing that they had left the universe of Etrenia. The thing is that Skeletor's hench-woman Evil-Lynn has an extra copy of Gwildor's Key.
An entire adventure takes place throughout the town and has to keep everyone and save the Sorceress. I am not going to tell you what happens, so guess what? Go find it and watch it

One set of movies that I don't get

One set of movies that I don't get or wish to understand at all are the Harry Potter movies. I mean I get it's about some magical kid named Harry Potter. The thing that I don't get is what makes it so damn great. I can understand what makes other movies so great, and those things are action, adventure, story lines, characters, and what ever else goes into making a movie. To me the Harry Potter movies are for forty year-old virgins who still live in their mom and dads basement and play D&D for like eight or nine hours at a time.
I see no point in making a series about a kid who isn't really that important. I can say this knowing that the movies that I like are not important to everyone else, but, it's like who is really into this movies of magic and mystical sages other than the forty year-old virgin who lives in the basement and plays D&D. To me these movies should stop being made along with any movie starring Vin Diesel, Jennifer Aniston, Vince Vaughn, and any other crappy actor that just happened to get lucky.
I feel that Harry Potter is a huge waste of my time and a big waste of yours. It makes me think about why movies like this are actually made. Maybe my opinion about these movies is wrong, but a lot of people have the wrong opinion about the movies that I like. Until you the "faithful" Harry Potter viewer, hell maybe even viewers out there in this world, if there are more than one of you, give the movies I like a chance, don't go ragging on me!
So what I'm trying to get at is, Harry Potter is just about as interesting as a movie starring "The Rock."

Recent movies

Recently I have seen many different movies. Most of them have left me very or somewhat disappointed with the out at the end of the movie. Some of those movies have been Hot Fuzz, and Transformers. I don't know what it was about the two of these movies that were made lately, but it is like they need to be made a little, nay a lot better. It seems like today many movies are just being made for the sole purpose of being made (i.e. Harry "fucking" Potter, or any movie that The "Crock" was in).
Movies like this that everyone goes to see, that fizzle out in a week are the dumbest things I've ever seen previews for. I don't understand why people go to see a movie with The Rock in them. To tell people the Rock isn't that good of an actor. Hell, I am sorry to say this but Jason Mewes (Jay of Jay and Silent Bob fame), is a better actor than the Rock. I am sorry to say this and burst the bubble of many people that enjoy his acting skills.
I honestly don't understand why people get pissed off at me when I tell them this, but it is the truth
