Product Description

Amazon.ca

Sarah (a teenage Jennifer Connelly) rehearses the role of a fairy-tale queen, performing for her stuffed animals. She is about to discover that the time has come to leave her childhood behind. In real life she has to baby-sit her brother and contend with parents who don't understand her at all. Her petulance leads her to call the goblins to take the baby away, but when they actually do, she realizes her responsibility to rescue him. Sarah negotiates the Labyrinth to reach the City of the Goblins and the castle of their king. The king is the only other human in the film and is played by a glam-rocking David Bowie, who performs five of his songs. The rest of the cast are puppets, a wonderful array of Jim Henson's imaginative masterpieces. Henson gives credit to children's author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, and the creatures in the movie will remind Sendak fans of his drawings. The castle of the king is a living M.C. Escher set that adults will enjoy. The film combines the highest standards of art, costume, and set decoration. Like executive producer George Lucas's other fantasies, Labyrinth mixes adventure with lessons about growing up. --Lloyd Chesley

5.0 out of 5 stars Tips for next release Jan. 16 2008
By Tibbi
Format:DVD
Labyrinth is my favourite film of all time. I loved it when I watched it as a girl (albiet it scared the jeepers out of me) and I love it now years later.

This edition has quite a number of excellent special features. All the featurettes are excellent and are a half-hour or longer (where most DVDs have 15 segments). There is lots to learn about how the puppets were done, technical contruction, casting, writing, etc. Full of interesting tidbits for the die-hard Labyrinth fan.

The commentary with Brian Froud is entertaining and despite Froud having to carry the commentary by himself, he keeps the viewer engaged as he reminisces about the film and tells cute stories. Plus he has a very jovial voice and truly loved making the film, which helps alot.

My one critique is the lack of reflection from Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie. Playing the two main characters (and certainly two very defining ones in my childhood) I was hoping for a commentary with the two of them. Sadly I was disappointed.

It would be BRILLIANT if in the next issue of this movie they included a commentary from them - together. I am eager to hear from both their perspectives on this AMAZING film.

And Sony, I PROMISE I will purchase the release! You have my word.

Beautiful film, beautiful transfer, excellent special features (though lacking Connelly and Bowie).

5.0 out of 5 stars Simplistic yet Imaginative July 16 2004
By Pamela
Format:DVD
Rather than relying on modern cinematics and special effects, Labyrinth instead relies on the talent and imagination of it's creators. It combines the talents of Set Designer M.C. Eshcher, Producer and Director, the infamous Jim Henson, and of course, the talented fantasy artist and designer Brian Froud. This combination creates an absolutely fun, and magic filled journey through the naivete of childhood that can be shared by the young and old alike.
Jeniffer Conolly is superp as Sarah, and David Bowie even more superb as Jareth, The Goblin King. The casting couldn't have been more perfect, as both artists became legends in their own right in that their appeal has lasted through the decades, and so, has the film. It remains a cult classic.
If anything, the lack of special effects has made it's appeal even more undeniable, as it cannot be dated. Too many times has it occured with films that as speical effects develop, the films lose their appeal. As the film relies on the fantastic nature of not only the genre, but the spectacular muppetry, the film retains it's beauty, despite it's simplistic cinematics...
A must see for all lovers of the fantsy genre...and of course Jim Henson or David Bowie fans...

5.0 out of 5 stars David Bowie rocks Jan. 21 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this movie after not seeing it for so long. it's as great as I saw it the first time. Jim Henson's puppets are grand. the imagination used, effects and acting are just right. it's an easy to watch, family oriented movie.. David Bowie's talent is omnipresent and he takes center stage. The character he plays is oddly very good looking..and even quite sensual....there's something adult about the character's dynamics. Yet it's done in a way that is acceptable for children. This movie is worth seeing!!! it will bring you back to when you were young and all dreams were possible... promise!

Format:Blu-ray
Such an amazing movie. Quick delivery (took less than what was the estimated time of delivery) and I was shocked and pleased with all the extra stuff included on the DVD. I wish the DVD case was a bit thicker... Seems a little flimsy. But the quality of film is great.
