I can't wait to watch The Dark Crystal, now.
UGH. Maybe I had to have seen this as a kid, but man did I hate this. Barf and then some. It's essentially a riff on Alice in Wonderland, a story I very much enjoy. That said, where even Alice is irritating is the constant nonsense which Labyrinth is full of.

Bowie <3 *cries*

The visuals for this movie are so interesting and enchanting. Jim Henson's puppetry knows no bounds. A bit over the top, at times, but ingeniously creative.
It's... an 80s movie with a teen in the lead role. The acting is not what you're watching this movie for. That said, Bowie is captivating and the voice work on the various creatures is endearing…
Saw this on the big screen for the first time. Noticed a lot of things I hadn't seen before. Did I notice the OTHER JUNKYARD PEOPLE because it was in widescreen? Who knows. But I've seen this film hundreds of times since it came out, and never noticed the other junkyard people til this viewing. Never noticed a couple things.
I almost cried. Maybe I teared up a little. Goddamn, I'll miss that man.
David Bowie playing a baby-stealing Goblin king - this film had the potential to be incredible; alas it wasn't. Firstly, all of the characters (except, Bowie, perhaps) are just annoying. Sarah is selfish and un-relatable, and the creatures just strange (but not in the endearing way). The plot is effectively Alice In Wonderland / Wizard of Oz, but unlike those films, everything is far too vague and we don't get a sense of the world Sarah travels to. Also, I…
david bowie's crotch 10/10
Boring and painfully dated. Some of the puppet work was good.

There's something quite special about '80s fantasy films that you just don't get anymore.
