Labyrinth

I’m having a hard time deciding how I want to describe watching this movie. I can’t say that I super loved it, but I still think it’s a classic film and it brought back nostalgic feels for just how big Jim Henson’s creations were back in those days — and I’d forgotten that he actually directed this. So watching it now, it’s aged fairly well, if seeing a human or two surrounded by muppets is fine with you — I wonder if the effects were meant to be “realistic” back then or not. David Bowie is David Bowie, and a very young Jennifer Connelly is fine, but it’s not one of her best acting gigs (although a step above the previous year’s Phenomena).
