THE LABYRINTH (1986) stars David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly, Toby Froud, Shelley Thompson, Christopher Malcolm, and last but never least, David Bowie's pants.

The basic premise is that Sarah feels like she's always being left at home, forced to babysit her baby brother and it's just not fair. She calls on the Goblin King to take her baby brother away. Too late, she realizes that she really doesn't want her brother gone, and she pleads with the Goblin King to give him back. He makes a deal with her instead: if she can make it to the castle at the center of the Labyrinth before midnight, she can have her baby brother back. If not, he becomes a goblin.


I think that The Labyrinth is one of the greatest movies ever made. The kids and I absolutely love it and we watch it often. The characters are adorable and funny and... it's just magical, pure and simple. It's not just for kids at all - I'm *mumblemumble* years old and it's still as magical to me now as it was the first time I saw it.

Give it a watch - you won't be sorry!

I just… love… "Labyrinth" more than words can express. It was one of my favorites as a kid, and it permeated my imagination.

Totally not just for kids. :D [livejournal.com profile] eltea had never seen it, and I made her sit down and watch it with me when she'd just turned 21, and other than the distraction of David Bowie's crotch, which was not so pertinent when I was young, it was just as magical as it's ever been. :3

Labyrinth is one of the best movies ever! I never get tired of it. You're so right - the magic never goes away <3

Trufax are true! Bowie's pants should be listed on the character credits *nodnod*

Oh, this movie... The problem is that when I saw it, I think I scared myself, because the first viewing my littlest brother was about the same age as the baby brother, so I was scared the Goblin King would take him away if I got frustrated with him. *nods and hides* So I like it, but there is that lingering fear still attached to it.

Ohhhh, yeah, I can see that being scary for you. *nods* Although, should the Goblin King ever happen to show up, you can just give him directions to my house and tell him I have a baby he can take. I don't but we'll burn that bridge when he gets here ;)

I think if I went back and rewatched it now (it's been years), that I'd be OK with it. But yeah, LOL.

I have never seen this movie... I really should. So many people love it.

Ok I think I missed the beginning of this meme... I'll have to go back and see what it's all about.

You really should see this movie - I think you'd really love it!

This is the 100 things meme that's going around - you pick any topic you want and blog about it 100 times. My official topic is 100 movies I like/love. My second (unofficial) topic is 100 days of Jon Bernthal tongue porn *g*
