Labyrinth Review

I bought this film on DVD because I remembered how much my kid brother and sister used to watch it, over and over and over again, thinking my young daughter might feel the same way. No such luck. She was scared silly by the puppet goblins and worried sick about the baby Toby, which Jennifer Connelly is tasked with recovering by solving the Goblin King's (David Bowie) labyrinth. The musical numbers are as memorable as Bowie's costume and hairdo, and as Jim Henson's last real film as director (he died of pneumonia in 1990), it's a fair capstone to his career. Age has given the film an even stronger air of camp, but that's just made it more of a classic. Say, you remind me of a babe...
