Tastes okay, but it needs more Bowie
I finally got around to watching this movie and I must say I LOVED Bowie as Jareth, the Goblin King. He was excellent....when he was dark. And the film would be a favorite, if it was darker. However, this is a kid's film and you get the sense the Henson pulled back quite a bit, especially with the pop song, Dance Magic Dance "written by Bowie" which, while incredible catchy, takes him out of character. Connelly as our heroine is pretty, but you never really seem to connect with her and she's not quite believable "however she was quite young". The muppets are just okay. HIGHPOINT OF THE FILM: When Jareth stalks Sarah in a M.S. Esher inspired room. The music he sings is undeniably haunting and you'd wish for more of the 'evil' Jareth.Was this review helpful?
