Gah! There's another extensive LABYRINTH thread and I just put all my comments in James's.......

So one clearly wasn't looking hard enough when starting the thread.

Watched this again at the weekend at my mates. My girlfriend had never seen it before.

I hadn't seen it for years and I'd forgotten so much.

Love it how you seen all the characters as toys in her room at the beginnng and how cool Sir Didymus is. I'd forgotten how much of a bitch Sarah is in it though....

Bowie was great and 'Dance Magic Dance' had us all singing along with it. There was some genuinely creepy things in it that as I was watching it suprised me that I was more traumatised from watching it as a child - eg. The Helping Hands!

quote:


ORIGINAL: Axel Foley

That leaves me with a question for y'all. How do you interpret the film. Is it all in Sarah's mind? After all a lot of the things we see in the Labyrinth are shown to have been in Sarah's room or things she encounters while at play reading her favourite book, which just happens to have been called Labyrinth. And is noble steed Ambrosius not her own dog? When last I saw it I went with this take, that imagination was her way of dealing with her screaming baby brother and nagging parents.

Anyway I'm thinking about this too much, David Bowie's Dance Magic is still way cool, (I remember being quite disturbed as the toss Toby about) and the optical illusion room for the showdown is a masterful technical feat, showing just what could be achieved pre CGI.

Turn back, before it's too late...


I'd always assumed it was a dream of a young girl becoming a woman but still needing the toys in her life. After all, as you say all the characters are toys in her room, Ambrosius is her dog Merlin, etc. As for Bowie's Jareth, the stirrings of sexual awakening.......?

I think he did that for many young girls watching Labyrinth at the time too, let alone just the symbolism of his character.

Bowie is a genius. A really good actor. I loved him in Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence and he was really good in Labyrinth.
He pulled off one of the hardest characters to play: A villian you actually
liked and felt sorry for!! Jared was a great character. My fave creature in the Labyrinth have to be the little dudes who change Sarah's markings and scream abuse at her. I think one of them yells:
'Your mother is a freaking ardvark!!' or something like that.
This movie actually has one of my all time favourite Bowie songs in As The World
Falls Down - a beautiful song. The music by Trevor Jones and Bowie in this movie
is really special. I will always love this movie!!

They reviewed the Anniversary edition in this monthís Empire and I was pleased to see that The Dark Crystal received greater credit than Labyrinth. So many forget Jim Hensonís classic puppetry is far superior in DC in comparison to Labyrinth.

I absolutely LOVE Labyrinth!!!  It's one of my all time favourite films!

Me and my best friend used to watch it constantly when we were little, and I was absolutely petrified of it!  Especially at the beginning when the Goblins are all waiting for Sarah to say the right words to take the baby away and when they;re all hiding in the room.  Then, when I fell out with my friend and we weren;t close anymore, I didn;t have the opportunity to watch it anymore so I went years without seeing it.  Then a few years ago I bought it on DVD and it felt like I was totally rediscovering it all and I still loved every second of it.  The thing is, it still bloody scares me!

As for Dark Crystal - well, I was in on the Frank Oz web chat this morning and it made me really want to see it so I;m watching it now!  I only discovered Dark Crystal for the first time a few years ago.  People kept telling me to watch it and someone eventually lent me the DVD.  The first time I put it on I couldn;t watch it all the way through because the Skeksis actually made me feel sick.  I gave the DVD back to the friend without finishing it, and then bought it for myself and forced myself to watch it all - and I love it!  Still scares me shitless though!

Labyrinth is my favourite of the two, because I grew up with it as a child so it kinda holds that special place for me.  I do honestly believe it to be the better of the two though.

I saw this film recently, after not seeing it for about 10 years. It's still excellent!

The helping hands scene used to freak me out (don't know why).

Oh hell yeah!  Count me in as a fan, despite the godawful acting, the blaring contradiction

Goblin: "Where did she get that rubbish from?!  It doesn't even begin with I wish!"
Sarah: "I wish I did know the right words to make the goblins take you away."
Goblin: "I wish the goblins would come and take you away right now!  Not that hard is it?!"

But I love it, I simply love it.  I freely admit that at the age I saw it David Bowie had a strange impact on me.  I went into the cinema a girl, I came out a woman, deeply and heavily in love.  I also freely admit to a bit of a weird crush on Ludo.  I know I'm not alone in this which is more than a little scary.  I'm obviously on the lookout for my "Ludo".  Think I've found him  but that's beside the point.

The Labyrinth remains a film I will watch again and again and have to stop what I'm doing if it's on the TV.

Bowie was great but this will always be the movie that introduced me to the beauty that is Jennifer Connelly.

Never looked at girls the same way since then.

I remember seeing this at the cinema and loving it.

I've got it on  dvd and still watch in on rainy day's and day's where all is wrong with the world.
