    Everything Pan's Labyrinth wasn't, this movie is. Whimsical, funny, charming, dark, awesome. This has one of the best soundtracks ever. Bowie is generally a good time, but he really elevates his game here. Jennifer Connelly is a pretty terrible actress (and please don't bring up the sham Oscar she won for A Beautiful Mind. That movie is awful). And she's pretty unlikable in this, but it just goes to show how to pull off a great movie with an unlikable…

    Master Pancake show. I enjoy this movie more than the Pancake guys do, apparently.

    I see now why Labyrinth is a classic film. Even for 80's special effects the labyrinth itself was amazing to look at and imagine in your mind. Around every corner and twist and turn lies a new possibility to be awed by the labyrinth's seemingly infinite walls and morphing corridors. It's not just a movie, it's a mind game. And there appears to be no way out.

    I haven't seen this film in decades and watching it again is a disappointing affair. It's very dated and very less coherent than I remembered. Visually it's spectacular but the story is hardly top notch.

    It's undoubtedly a product of some wonderful imagination, but the thin plot leaves little to return to, and Jennifer Connely's annoying performance doesn't help any.

    Directed by Jim Henson this film stars David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly. A teenage girl wishes her baby step brother away and has to go into a fantasy world to get him back before he turns into a goblin.

    Despite the fantasy setting this is a fairly average coming of age tale where the protagonist has to stop being so selfish and become aware of her responsibilities. The basic theme works well even if it is a little simplistic but…

    A campy '80s fantasy, Labyrinth brings together some of the leaders in the genre to assemble a popular adventure tale. While executive produced by George Lucas, director Jim Henson provides his inventive Muppets, and former Monty Python member Terry Jones crafts witty and inventive side bits in the screenplay to color the standard formula. The special effects, makeup, and creatures are top-notch, all created before CGI technology, thus marking an end of an era for live-action fantasy films. Jennifer Connelly…

    Not as good as one might remember. Obviously in part due to the dated FX, but the story and characters are not that wonderful either. Watched it with the children and while it was pretty late they both asked how long was left and could they go to bed. Jim Henson's creations are always a pleasure, but Dark Crystal delivers far better on that count. At least I think so, has been a while since I last watched it...

    Wizard of Oz for the 80s. Jennifer Connelly, David Bowie songs, a bunch of muppet goblins that look like inspirations for the orc designs in Lord of the Rings 20 years later, a modern fable and a rocking good time.
