He-Man movie is on (again!)

Geeks of Doom has posted the official word that John Stevenson will be directing a live-action Masters of the Universe movie.

By the power of Greyskull! I was so bummed when this project got stalled last year, and it seemed like SUCH a no-brainer in a post-Transformers movie landscape. I'm glad they saw reason.

On a more somber note, I started watching Sharkwater, a serious, heart-breaking, and stunningly beautiful documentary about the plight of the world's shark population:
Documentarian Rob Stewart dives into shark-filled seas to disprove fear-based stereotypes and raise awareness of the world's dwindling shark population. But he ventures into dangerous waters when he battles shark poachers in this award-winning film. With renegade conservationist Paul Watson, Stewart exposes the criminal and highly profitable harvesting of shark fins, risking his life and facing a corrupt court system for his efforts.

If you don't think things like whale hunting, seal clubbing, and activist face-offs happen anymore just because they've fallen off the radar of public consciousness, this will be graphic and illuminating. I highly recommend it.

We can only hope this is as good as the last live-action He-Man movie!
