Renewal of Childhood Movietime

by Kelly G on Jul 23, 2010

Recently, I began collecting movies for my own future children that were a part of my own happy childhood. The Dark Crystal was one movie that stood out for the years to come in my memory, and maybe a bit too long on my familie's list of unethical movies for children. Thanks for the fabulous copy!


A Very Bright Object This...

by mehaul on Apr 19, 2010

TITLE: The Dark Crystal GENRE: Fantasy puppet alien world CAST:(Lead Puppeteers) Jim Henson, Frank Oz and Kathryn Mullen PLOT: A race did a little too much experimenting on a giant magical crystal which resulted in the splitting of the individuals into two distinct species. The bad guys kept control of the device which had broken but still functioned incompletely. The good guys were kicked out to the wilderness to try and save the rest of the world's beings. At a conjunction of the planet's three stars, the crystal needs to be made whole again. The hero, an elfin type of creature and his found female counterpart, try to complete the saving of the world. RETURN ON INVESTMENT: 9.5 of 10; This has the best puppeteers, the best costumes. a great dialogue and character development that arose from 5 years of development. Forget all that, this is a kid's fantasy and one of the best ever concieved and executed. DVD BONUS: A one hour "the Making of..." documentary. A lot of story board, and some deleted scenes and reworked scenes. ADDED NOTES: Even adults will be lost in the imaginative world created by Henson and Oz and forget they are watching puppets and not live alien beings. A sequel is said to be being released in 2011! Can't wait.
