It's easily one of the freshest, sharpest and most enjoyable films of this year.

LabyrinthIt contains some intriguing tricks and riddles with some sketchy characters in its first half that ante's up the game which then makes it more disappointing later, as the second half is exhaustingly cliched with a typical agenda of quest seeking where one knows its predictable climax. Jim Henson needs to work on his execution skills especially when one is creating such a feature that attracts younger crowd that seeks for more drama and meddling with emotions. Jennifer Connelly is brilliant in her performance and unfortunately isn't supported well enough by David Bowie as he fails to strike essential fear onto the audience. Labyrinth; despite of its flaws, works like a charm as its screenplay is gripping and entertaining enough to hold the audience for its short runtime of 100 minutes and deliver the complete anticipated package.

It is sad that there are degraded people who gave one and two stars for this masterpiece and I quote:''I was on drugs watching this movie..I had hard time to recover after watching it". He probably was on crystal meth or cocaine or some other demonic substance. This movie should be watched on natural psychedelics to fully immerse in its beauty. Why no academy awards. The world is spiraling downward with all that people who just dont have souls. If this movie does not have award I can see ehere we are all going... to hell

Labyrinth (1986) Starring: David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly, Toby Froud, Shelly Thompson, Brian Henson, Ron Mueck, Frank Oz, Shari Weiser, Christopher Malcolm, Dave Goelz, David Barclay, David Shaughnessy, Karen Prell, Timothy Bateson, Rob Mills, Warwick Davis, and Natalie Finland Directed By: Jim Henson Review WHERE EVERYTHING SEEMS POSSIBLE AND NOTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS. Apparently this film failed at the box office, I'm not sure why that is. Maybe it could of been due to the fact that it's very lighthearted. But since its release on Video and its many re- releases on DVD & Bluray it has gained a cult following. 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 the baby stepbrother away. When little Toby actually disappears, Sarah must follow him into the world of the fairy-tale to rescue him from the Goblin King! George Lucas had hand in not just as an Executive produce but also had a hand with the shooting script for this film. He did a lot of other great works after Star Wars (this and Willow) but he must of lost his way with films like The Phantom Menace and that Indiana Jones movie that will never be spoken of. Terry Jones from the Python group had written a script that was much different from what Lucas, Henson and Laura had in mind. But many changes were made because of the star of the movie, David Bowie. The director of photography Alex Thompson made another beautiful looking movie that went along with Brian Foud's production design. Alex Thompson had worked on Legend before hand which is my favorite fantasy film it's a no wonder this film's photography look just as amazing. The opening credits with CGI owl was impressive at the time, but now it just feels like a cheap effect. They're are even some scenes were you can just tell it's green screen. The puppeteers crafted some amazing work with their most notable one's being the characters of Hoggle, Ludo, and Didymus. Jennifer Connelly had only done a few commercials before working on this film, I just took a look at her audition tape for the film and I can see why she got this role. She got cast not only because of how good she was but because Henson thought Jennifer was a girl growing out of her childhood. In the film you can see that Sarah's character is trying to hold on to her childhood with stuffed animals being shown almost all over her room. Jennifer was only fourteen at the time. My favorite moments are when she's interacting with Hoggle, Ludo and Didymus and the ballroom scene if only for the sheer reason because she looks like a beautiful princess. David Bowie not only delivers an amazing performance for the movie but provided it with a pretty good soundtrack. He did four tracks Underground, As The World Falls Down, Magic Baby and within you. The two I most enjoyed were "As The World Falls Down" and "Underground". Magic Dance is another good one I believe a lot of you will enjoy just depends on taste I have a very strange taste in music. Labyrinth is a delightful little children's film that is much better than most and has great acting, music, direction and puppeteer work. The film doesn't have the best story or even use of CG, but it still holds a place as an amazing fantasy musical and children's film. I'm giving Labyrinth a ten out of ten because of how much I enjoyed the film and is definitely very re-watchable.

A menagerie of puppets, puppets everywhere!Got a lot of Jennifer Connelly's performances, so wanted more, research showed me this, her big vintage performance, so took the leap recently and got me the 30th Anniversary edition.Was skeptic about the puppet-fest, but settled in to watch.I have to admit, of course it is clearly a good film with a magical story-line, it is just not in my line. Jennifer Connelly started off bad, and I thought, hoo boy, in for a dismal ride at this rate, but she improved quickly, maybe the first few scenes should have been redone?Weird and wonderful stuff. Check out the Lady Godiva fairy. Hey, there's a guy prancing around in here wearing a blonde wig, looks just like Tina Turner.Just kidding. Wonderful cinematography. Cute long-haired heroine. Bright colors and lots of wondrous scenes. And, ah, yes, er, Hoggle. What have I done to deserve Hoggle? Face like Ernest Borgnine. And a very unimpressive choice for the baby, who spoils all his scenes, as all film-babies invariably do, but this particular baby was the conceptual designer's, part and parcel. Anyway... Total magic. I wouldn't have been here if not for Jennifer, but let me put it this way, however back-handed my comments might be, anything good said from the non-converted one here actually speaks more than the volumes by the straight-out fans.So, won't make a habit of this kind of stuff, but yeah, good work.
