Post by bonerlaw » Thu Mar 13, 2008 1:00 pm

anyone remember this quality jim henson film from the 80s?

Ok, next question, anyone think gail platt from coronation street looks like a gelfling?

I know a picture comparison would help, but im still at work and am using my n95 mobile phone!

Loved it when I was younger, saw it a few years ago and the rough edges were more apparent... still a good film, mind.

Trying to remember if there was any merchandise/cereal pack promotion...

Great song though :)

"You remind me of the babe?"
"What babe?"
"Babe with the power"
"What power?"
"Power of voodoo"...

Dark Crystal is a good movie, Labyrinth is even better.

It could be worse. You could be picturing David Bowie's crotch in tights :shock:

Didn't mean to scar you for life!
Mind you, I've seen worse things.

Dark Crystal... good film. Not seen it for a while, but I loved that fizzyjig thing...

Labyrinth...

1. Mmmm.. Jennifer Connelly (Hey.. I was only 14 at the time.. :D )

2. Ack... David Bowie. He was rubbish...

Btw if anyone fancies seeing a making of the Labyrinth game in the mag one day feel free to let me know... there's some quite interesting stories behind that one.

I think I watched it a while back, but can't really remember much about it.

I've always been a big fan of Labyrinth though. I think I'll buy Dark Crystal, and see what it's like. I know that a lot of people hold it in high regard.
