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

  • 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: Don't be fooled by the puppets, this is a very good film that adults and children will enjoy. There are some pretty serious themes for something that looks like just a kids movie. Visually appealing and very entertaining.

  • Summary: Jim Henson and Frank Oz create a wonderful story and a beautiful world full of odd creatures and dark times. Sure it's a kids movie, but it is great and is still a joy to watch today. Unlike today's kids movies where everything is politically correct and adult topics like death and darkness are rarely explored, the Dark Crystal leaves nothing left unsaid. It is a very in depth sorry about how everyone and everything in this world is linked to one another.

Only for us.

  • Summary: It's difficult to see how a film like this could ever have mass popularity. It's melodramatic, poorly scripted, mechanically plotted and hasn't got any people in it. But I *love* it. This is a dark, ponderous, elegant, film. The emotional tones are murky, sometimes quiet, sometimes startlingly loud, always alien and dreamlike and only ever vaguely comprehensible. The design is just drop-dead gorgeous, and entire alien WORLD brought to life.

A major accomplishment!

  • Summary: It took an infinity of imagination to make The Dark Crystal, a film so overflowing with invention that you literally have to watch it about 100 times just to take it all in. Everyone involved, from the director to the best boy gave the film such loving affection and made it the best it could possibly be. Kid's movies (if you want to call it that) these days simply are not what they used to be and probably never will be again.

A very imaginative tale that's easy to love.

  • Summary: "Another world. Another time. In the Age of Wonder." So begins the classic fantasy story that is The Dark Crystal, Henson's best and, to date, only all-creature film. My father bought this movie for me the day I was born, so I quite literally grew up watching it. It's a story that never gets old. The characters are unforgettable, with a wonderful musical score that sticks in the head.
