    i find most people can't talk about this movie in a serious light.
    i love this movie. it being about the dangers of getting swept up into a fantasy and forgetting reality holds up in modern day. dunno if newer audiences can suspend disbelief with the awkward green screen moments.
    Baby Toby is the child of Brian Froud who was the concept designer of the film.

      It's hardly about getting swept up into fantasy. It's about the transition from being a bratty child to, hopefully, a responsible young woman. But there are a million influences pulling her in every direction, so she might remain a selfish, shitty young woman. One who wraps herself up in her dumb hobbies and thinks herself brilliant and special for it.

          not at all, escaping into fantasy is what someone with a hard life does
          but she's the kind of spoiled teen girl who ACTS like her life is so hard, when in fact it is great. She doesn't escape for shit, she self-indulges.
          escapism is just getting sucked into your hobbies so you don't have to think about your crummy life, this girl is out in the woods reading poetry out loud. it's completely different. She's being bratty and childish, but that has nothing to do with escapism. it'd be pretty hypocritical for an enthralling fantasy adventure movie to be against escapism.

        No. Labyrinth is a meta MKUltra tale based on the programming methods used to create willing agents (agents in this case meaning sex slaves).
        Bowie and Henson were huge into the occult.
        The entire journey of Sarah follows the process, including drugging, forced exposure to vile fluids (bog of "stench") hand crafted coping mechanisms, and so on.
        Never forget that Henson was set to merge with Disney before he died. This was Disney right at the peak of its hidden sexual imagery and messages being put into film. You dont get to that point without being incredibly "israeli" (using it as a catch-all term, you get what I mean).
        The only problem was Don Bluth inadvertently springing the Disney rennaisance so the Disney israelites killed Henson as they no longer needed him.
        If you have any doubts just give the ending song of Labyrinth a good re-listening and pay attention to the lyrics.

      the thing is, it's not the green screen's fault. it NEVER worked well on thin fibers. They should have either done blackscreening (and then hand-colored in the legitimate blacks) or chosen non-feathery characters.
      You notice on Fraggle Rock, they had a separate Gobo to use for bluescreen scenes because his purple hair was too close to blue, and looked shitty unless they busted out the reddish-purple-haired one. and they gave him a haircut later.

          I watched this like a week ago when I was on a plane. I can see how it would be popular with girls and why it's a cult classic, but the plot just never hit for me. It's just sort of goes "and this happens, and this happens, and this happens", and there's not really any development for Sarah other than the immediate shift from 'goblins take my brother away' to 'oh shit' when they actually follow through at the beginning. The songs didn't really leave an impression on me either. Top tier design for the sets and for the Muppets, though: really liked the scene where Jareth is disguised and quickly reveals himself to her and Hoggle.

      Bowie headcanoned that this guy is not a hereditary goblin king, but has only recently become the goblin king and isn't very fond of it. Like he used to be a human guy, and he'd rather get someone to replace him (the baby). so all he has to do is seduce his caretaker into giving him up, and he's got a replacement heir lined up.

      I think... she was attempting lateral thinking.
      Jennifer Connelly did an amazing job in this role, but one thing she didn't QUITE get across from the writing is that Sarah's a dramatic little theater kid weirdo. She is capable of thinking outside the box, solving puzzles like the lying doors, and even wondering if perhaps these hands are here as a trap (if the goal is for you to go down, why taunt you with a choice?) and going back up would actually be bad.
      unfortunately, the Labyrinth doesn't play like that. it cheats. and learning "yeah life cheats sometimes, deal with it" is part of her journey of growing up. you can't clever your way through everything and expect to win because you did something you felt was so speshul.

        I hate how true that is
        I recently rewatched age of resistance followed by the original movie, and this time the movie realllly didn't hold up. I hate to criticize so hard because of all the intensely hard work they put in, but you can just see how they didn't quite have the fine controls yet. Lots of shaky movements that take you right out of the reality. Apparently Jen was the first puppet they put radio controlled stuff in, at Karen Prell's insistence, because she was having so much trouble making him move smoothly with heavy cables hanging out, and Faz Fazakas was just like "oh yeah we can just do that by radio control, easy." and then she convinced Jim to switch to that..
        oh and a lot of the dialogue was awkward since a ton of it was dubbed in later.

          I think Dark Crystal holds up fine. Yeah it does show it's gears a bit but I think that just makes it all the more fascinating. It's like say Harryhausen stuff shows it's age. You're not wrong but it's still more interesting for it.

          maybe its just me, but do the gelflings in the original movie look way better than the ones in the new series?
          they feel more expressive, less gross looking
          is it just in my head? I liked the netflix series otherwise, but the gelfling puppets felt flat to me, as far as jim henson company puppets go

            I mean I feel the exact opposite, but at least we agree there was a definite difference.

            [...]
            I just think it's way easier to connect with the story and the tone in Labyrinth. Dark Crystal has too much DEEP LORE.
            Still a spectacle, though.

            the trouble is it was designed to be totally alien and in another language so you'd have to piece it together yourself.. once you change it back to english, it's like, whyy are they doing this.

    Dance Magic Dance is great but this is 100% the best song in the music. And the scene is so great.

      it really is fricking incredible. on the surface it just sounds cheesy and 80s, but it actually has incredible chord structure.

      to me though, it's all about Underground. Bowie nailed the premise of the film effortlessly.
      Dance Magic Dance and Chilly Down are both fun, but Underground MEANS some stuff.

    the puppets are amazing
    the music is amazing too
    the acting is ok, bowie steals but connelly is too young she's just yelling all her lines
    the plot is rambling and dumb, on purpose as the dumb rambling imaginings of a blossoming young girl, but just cause it's bad on purpose doesn't stop it from being bad
    it's surprisingly boring in parts and it shouldn't be
    there's also a lot of plot cul-de-sacs especially with hoggle (think that's his name) where a bunch of shit happens and then 10 minutes later they're right back to where they started in terms of progress in plot and progress in character

    imo its a boring movie filled with a lot of really cool things

      i think she does fine most of the time, but it helps that the character fits her so well.
      >boring in parts
      only when they're storming the castle. That's where anything henson falls apart, because he was too much of a puss to understand how to write good battles.
      Hoggle doesn't revert in character that I remember. he doesn't exactly have an arc, he's just a jerk and then he betrays her and then he's sorry.

    I watched this like a week ago when I was on a plane. I can see how it would be popular with girls and why it's a cult classic, but the plot just never hit for me. It's just sort of goes "and this happens, and this happens, and this happens", and there's not really any development for Sarah other than the immediate shift from 'goblins take my brother away' to 'oh shit' when they actually follow through at the beginning. The songs didn't really leave an impression on me either. Top tier design for the sets and for the Muppets, though: really liked the scene where Jareth is disguised and quickly reveals himself to her and Hoggle.

      I think it was a case of too many cooks. Jim Henson wanted one thing, Terry Jones wanted another. I think Jones wasn't a fan of having a bunch of songs and showing the castle throughout the movie. He wanted you to never see the castle until the end. There were also other writers who made uncredited contributions to the screenplay including Elaine May. George Lucas had his own input which wasn't always the same as what the others wanted. I do think the movie had the potential to be better than it ended up, though it's still a movie that a lot of people love and I see why.

      I personally prefer The Dark Crystal. It's a little more boring I guess, but it feels much more cohesive.

        The worm is a direct reference to the catepillar in Alice in Wonderland (a film/story used during monarch programming to help the subconscious minds of children learn to disasociate).
        Like the catepillar that represents the blossoming sexuality of Alice, the worm here provides Sarah two choices. She can go left, or go right. The forward joke being that she has, again, made the mistake of being loose with her words. She asks to solve the maze rather than enter the castle.
        This is the initial test to see if she will be able to disasociate, as the maze is her own pysche and the prize in the middle, Toby, her core persona which is being broken down by her handler.
        Sarah was foolish enough to seperate her subconscious (the castle) from her conscious, and was tricked into cutting off the direct line of access between the two.
        She allowed her handler to get between her waking mind and her internal identity, which will allow him (Bowie in this case) to fracture her mind and cause the disasociation.

            Vigilant Citizen is the most digestible entry into the topic I know of. They cover the basics. Read their article on Labyrinth, note that it goes over the plot outline but not into super fine detail like I did with the worm.
            I also highly reccomend reading the article published on Poltergiest. It is what I use to redpill people who are ready to learn about the reality of Hollywood.
            I tried formatting a link in a few ways but the spam filter kept catching it so sorry no direct url.
            The rest is just losing time browsing through Wikipedia and reading books. The CIAs proframs and test themselves are available online via the freedom of information act too. They are redacted but its what everything is based upon and worth reading.

      Nah, Labyrinth was always the one more popular with normies since it had Bowie. Dark Crystal has all of those spinoffs because the Henson Company badly needed franchise money after selling the Muppets to Disney and it's easier to lorewank Dark Crystal then it is with Labyrinth since there's no Bowie to pay royalties to, but at the same time, it's hard to get people invested in that lorewank because it doesn't have a Bowie to pull in the normies.
