Movie Time! 'Labyrinth'

"Journey into the fantastical world of LABYRINTH, starring David Bowie and a cast of incredible creatures created by Jim Henson and produced by the Master of Myth, George Lucas!

Frustrated with babysitting on yet another weekend night, Sarah-- a teenager with an active imagination-- summons the Goblins from her favorite book, 'Labyrinth,' to take her baby step-brother away.  When little Toby actually disappears, Sarah must follow him into the world of the fairy tale to recuse him from the wicked Goblin King (Bowie)!

Guarding his castle is the Labyrinth itself-- a twisted maze of deception, populated with outrageous characters and unknown dangers.  To get through it in time to save Toby, Sarah will have to outwit the King by befriending the very Goblins who protect him, in hopes that their loyalty isn't just another illusion in a place where nothing is as it seems!"

Hmm... kind of a twisted 90's movie... it's like nothing I've ever seen before.

For a 90's movie I struggle to decide whether it was good or bad.  It was good in that the story was interesting and there was tons of glitter to appease the masses, but it was bad in the sense that the directors didn't really know how to use green screen, so it was super obvious when they tried and the various costumes and puppets as well as the Sarah character... very questionable.  The music was good, so gold star for David Bowie.

It's not a bad kind of bad, but a nostalgic bad, if you know what I'm trying to get at.

If you're planning on having a nineties party or a nostalgically bad movie party any time soon, definitely put this on your list.  If you're looking for something kind of corny and cute, put this on your list.  If you're feeling a little down one day, pop this into your DVD player (or VHS player, if you're still awesome enough to have kept yours) and this movie will cheer you right up, I promise!

Thanks for reading!
