Format: DVD
Jim Henson's wizardry of the puppetry craft has certainly become the stuff of legend, mostly due to the rip roaring success of the Muppets. However, at the latter half of the 1970s, Henson and his team set out to bridge the gap between simplistic puppets and seemingly living, breathing creatures. The result was "The Dark Crystal," an absolute landmark of puppetry. Together with Frank Oz, Henson set about constructing lifelike beings which would be controlled by a single person, or multiple crew members for larger creatures. A strong emphasis was placed on facial articulation and eye movements to craft a sense of life and comprehension in each character. Together with Brian Froud's astounding art direction, Henson had certainly created a stir within the fantasy world.

The film takes place in "another world, another time, in the age of wonder," which later became known as the planet Thra in a galaxy containing three suns. A thousand years prior, the near-omnipotent UrSkeks fought amongst themselves and shattered the Crystal of Truth, a powerful device which holds the key to their power. In that moment of fracture, the UrSkeks split apart and their life energy formed two distinct races, each based on the good and evil sides of their personalities. The gentle UrRu, or "Mystics" as they are commonly known, have remained passive and docile for a thousand years, while the vicious Skeksis have seized power and used their evil magics to craft a reign of terror over the world of Thra. A great prophecy once foretold the downfall of the Skeksis and a return of balance and peace in the land by the hand of a Gelfling, prompting the Skeksis to launch a genocidal campaign against the entire race. Now, only the young Jen remains to fulfill the prophecy.

Love all the old Henson Muppet movies. This is no different. Much darker so not for young kids but there is a good story to tell. Enjoyed it as a kid and as an adult as well.

I can remember watching the original movie...wwaayy back when..(yes I'm dating myself) and loving it then, the kids enjoyed it as well but were also terrified of some of the weird creatures that were in the movie. When i saw it was available on DVD i had to purchase it and watched it immediately when it came. Even made the youngest watch it with me (now a grown young man),, he sort of remembered the story but he sure remembered the creatures again but his favourite was the gelfins....Amazing viewing and was way ahead of his time!

Format: DVD
Only saw the Blu-ray version

The story is of a myth being fulfilled in a strange but seemingly familiar land. A land that was split asunder with the shattering of a great crystal. The reason for this is revealed in time. However we are concerned with a Gelffling that was charged with either healing the world or letting it live in evil for all time.

This is a classic movie that can almost be placed in the cult class. I have watched several media versions and can say this is one film that is actually enhanced by the Blu-ray treatment. True the acting is the same and the story is the same. But the visuals and music, which are equal partners with the rest of the characters, are more intense.

Watching the Blu-ray extras, the voice over by conceptual designer Brian Froud, who also did the voice over for "Labyrinth", we find that the title of this film might have been "Dark Chrysalis" as it is a movie about change.

Take hart that they did not place a lot of coming attractions at the front of the DVD and that the Blu-ray extras sill do not get in the way of the film as some do.

Format: DVD
As my first "Superbit" title, this is a disappointment. As the description states, the film is scratched (not an issue with the transfer, but still diminishes the film). The high-rate of encoding did not improve the video - in fact I found it dark and murky.
The biggest disappointment is with the audio, which has inconsistant volume in standard stereo - bass and score drown out voices in loud scenes, which are also muted compared to quiet scenes. This requires periodic master volume adjustments.
In all, not worth the cost. I admit I've not seen the "Special Edition" DVD. If it's worse than this, buy it on VHS.

Excellent film, je le recommande fortement: mes enfants qui sont habituées de voir des effets spéciaux numériques ont étés éblouis! En plus, comble d'excitation, l'histoire est fantastique!
