A classic. And it's Bowie. And the director is The Muppets creator (Jim Henson). This movie was made 30 years ago (1986) so please don't expect great technology in sound quality (I feel the sound quality is actually very poor, and I streamed it from Amazon). We loved the movie's plot, and of course Bowie's music. I didn't like Jennifer Connelly's acting, and Bowie seemed way too old to be interested on such a young girl, it just doesn't feel right...
I can't seem to understand how so many people could give this movie such a horrible review. There's nothing wrong with this movie. David Bowie is amazing and the acting is also amazing. Also the music is easy to sing along to and it keeps your interest no matter what part it is of the movie. When I end up having children, I wouldn't hesitate to play this movie for them and even watch it with them. I was a slight David Bowie fan and then my mom asked me if I wanted to watch some of her VHS movies. I saw Labyrinth and after watching the first 10 mins, I looked at the box and thought "oh wow! I knew that had to be David Bowie :3!" and sure enough, I have watched it numerous times over and over again. I finally decided I should get it on DVD so I didn't destroy the VHS. The DVD has not yet arrived as I am writing this review early instead of waiting for the DVD. Movies with puppets and surprises are always an interesting time to watch. But my favorite thing in the movie is David Bowie's "catch phrase" of "Such a pity" XD. And he's always on Hoggle's case and mispronouncing his name. Oh and always threatening to dip him head first in the "bog of eternal stench". Anyone who can say such negative things about an OLD movie from the 80s is either crazy or stupid. Possibly having NO taste in an 80's puppet kids movie.
