  • Summary: Just like 'Labyrinth', this film is a wonder of imagination and creative puppetry. A fantasy film worth checking out.

Good vs. Evil

  • Excerpt: This is a great film, by muppet master Jim Henson and Company. It is a fantasy about an elf like creature triumphing against evil. Most fantasy stories center around this general theme, but the trick is to make it good and The Dark Crystal is good. Yes the creatures are muppet like, but what else would you expect from Henson? For an older non CGI movie the picture and audio is great.

The Great Crystal Caper................................

  • Excerpt: The late Jim Henson was a man ahead of his time when it came to his creative mind and the use of puppets and how he made them come to life and with that so articulate you believed it was a real as human can be. The Dark Crystal is one of those gems from a day when CGI was not heard of and suspension of disbelief was at an all time high. Sony makes this classic look very good in high-def and for a film that is nearly 30 years old it holds up very well.

Much better than the DVD releases!

  • Excerpt: I am a Dark Crystal fan since 1983. Its still the only ALL fantasy movie. Every creature, set, prop etc. was designed from scratch. A very unique and impressive movie. I own most previous releases and this is the best yet. Which doesnt mean there isnt room for improvement. The picture quality could be better. Ive seen older movies which look slightly better. But it is a lot sharper than the DVD. There are much more details and colours.

  • Excerpt: Wow I love this movie. I remember my mother bringing me to the theatre to see it when I was 8 years old. I almost teared up watching it again after all these years. Just a great kid's story of good versus evil. Great characters, settings and much more. Just a beautiful movie. And no CGI crap, this is how to do it! Highly recommended!!! If you have kids, get this.

  • Summary: The package was in good order and the movie plays fine. I was very excited about the free digital copy. This was the reason I bought this item. Imagine my surprise when the "free digital copy" was only available by download over a certain window that expired a year before I bought the DVD online. It did mention this (in small print) on the package but I opened the DVD before noticing nulling any chance of a refund.

  • Summary: A classic fantasy by Jim Henson. Not quite as engaging as Labyrinth but still very very good.

  • Summary: After someone mentioned this movie, I dug it up from my childhood memory. I was psyched to watch it again. But to be honest, I should have left it as a memory. It's a good movie, but it wasn't as good as I remember it being.

  • Summary: Typical Jim Henson movie. Great story line with hero and heroine triumphs over great odds. Sometimes one must sacrifice themselves for the good of the majority. Colorful characters and wonderful sets from another world. Story shows it is necessary for a balance of good and evil. Good story for children, but a bit scary for toddlers.
