Labyrinth (27-Jun-1986)

Director: Jim Henson

Writers: Dennis Lee; Jim Henson; Terry Jones

Score Composed by: Trevor Jones

Producer: Eric Rattray

Keywords: Juvenile/Fantasy, Muppet, Toys Come Alive

Sarah, a spoiled 15-year-old, annoyed at having the task of taking care of her little brother Toby, wishes him away to the Goblin Realm. Realizing that this might upset hear parents, she sets to rescue the infant; Jareth the Goblin King gives her 13 hours to complete his labyrinth or he will keep Toby forever. A tale much deeper than programming created today, although becoming dated in places. Received a Hugo nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation.

REVIEWS

Review by Pamela Minerva (posted on 25-Feb-2005)

This movie was so great. I think if David Bowie would not have filled in the spot for Jarreth, this movie would have been... okay, but not as great as it turned out. David really took on the role of his character and made this movie a big hit. I just had to buy it, so I bought it. I watch it rarely only because I never want to get tired of Labyrinth. In my opinion it's an awesome movie, and I think everybody should get a chance to watch it.
