    The true protagonist is Bowie’s tights, the one thing that kept this film from going R.

    It's not only a metaphor for sexual awakening, it's a metaphor for her learning that your childhood can come with you, i.e. the dance reunion with her friends (who were really the toys in her room)

    His motive was that he loves her, and he was trying to get her to love him back

    So I’m working on a story boarding assignment for a Digital Media Arts class and we had to make a story board for a “secret” movie (found out it was labyrinth because I LOVE this movie) and I’m watching this to pretty much cheat and know the scenes

    Why are you guys acting like these 80's children's movies were traumatizing? They weren't. They were awesome, and actually respected the intelligence of their intended audience. I watched "Wizards" for the first time when I was only 9, and I found it disturbing, but I loved it. I also loved "The Dark Crystal" , 'The Neverending Story" and "Gremlins" when I was 6 or 7. I wasn't particularly freaked out by "Return to Oz" as a child, either. I think I was only 8 or so when I watched it for the first time. I think these movies are actually good for kids. They never felt "safe", and that was part of the appeal. They never felt patronizing.

    Hey, this story is of a fan girl of real musician bowie (she had magazine clips in her room of him as proof real obsession), she spent her days daydreaming and learned a thing or two. The endig is quite amazing he offers a dreamlike bubble (mental institution where she will be daydreaming rest of her life) or real life. Read a michael endes "neverending story" (not the movie), maybe than you will understand a message of escapism in dream worlds.

    I'm from the UK and finished school in 88
    I can remember one day we went to a rival school because they had their own purpose-built cinema (posh bastards)
    we were going there to watch Watership Down as part of our English lesson.
    before the movie we were shown a short film about life in France and in one scene a goose was picked up by it's neck and as it's wings flapped in terror it was forcefully rammed onto a metal pipe and force-fed until its insides ruptured, to make fois gras
    I now know this was to de-sensitise us for the leporine horror we were about to be exposed to
    fuck you too, Simon & Garfunkel

    Here's another bizarre thought; they originally were considering Michael Jackson, Prince, or Mick Jagger for the Goblin King! Henson wanted Sting until his kids suggested Bowie! Realize that there would have been NO "Magic Dance," no "Underground" and, whatever the Hell that final song was!

    One critic said Labyrinth was a $5,000,000 movie that looked like $50,000,000. Whereas "Legend," (the Tom Cruise/Tim Curry thing that came out at the same time) was a $50,000,000 movies that looked like $5,000,000!

    Don't talk that way about my loved Sarah, Doug, LOL... without all seriousness, I really like her character on the movie, the 1st heroine I actually came to see and like! And let be honest here, it's Jennifer Connelly, how could one don't like her?

      That, my dear IJ, is "Watership Down." A film presented on the box as a happy go lucky tale about rabbits. Then you watch it. Woah! Seriously, the film is about a tribe of rabbits, one of whom has a vision of an upcoming disaster in their "warren." Several of the rabbits leave, and try to find a new warren, then, with the help of a seagull (Zero Mostel in one of his last roles) try to free some "does" from a hutch so they breed! (Only "bucks" escaped the disaster.) There's bureaucratic rabbits, fatalistic rabbits, evil rabbits, and a cat. Watch it. But be aware, it IS on this list for a reason. Or as my kid put it; "Not scarred enough by "Bambi?" Watch "Watership Down!" "

    Still one of my favorite movies of all time. David Bowie put a lot of magic into that movie, and fit right along with all the wonder Jim Henson and his crew gave us. A flight of fancy well worth taking time and again!

    There's something that always bugs me with these "one always tells the truth and one always lies" riddles. If they truly are one truth teller and one liar, the liar would never admit to it. That would be telling the truth. The only way they can make that statement is if they are BOTH lying.

    • Mariokemon

      the way i know the riddle is that a sign nearby says one tells the truth, and the other lies

    Many effects like the green screen didn't have to hold up to 1080. They were on wavy VHS players in the 80's with bad heads on a 18 inch Tube television held over from the 70's that you literally screwed the cable into, with an analog knob to control the sharpness and color, and a tracking knob that never seemed quite right... seems unfair to judge it so harsh because the effects worked at the time.

    the door riddle could be instead be a perfect lie where the door of truth says nothing and only the lying door speaks and only with patience can you solve this riddle where the best lies have half truths while the truth doesn't have to say anything
