The DVD of this Alice in Wonderland-like children's film comes with four bios/filmographies, each two screens in length, a behind-the-scenes featurette of fuzzy audio and visual quality, and three theatrical trailers. Although presented as widescreen anamorphic (2:35:1 ratio) with dual-layered, English, two-channel Dolby Surround, the picture looks slightly grainy in places and a faint hiss persists in the audio background throughout the film. The puppet animations look and sound impressively lifelike and highly detailed. Also included are English and Spanish subtitles and a small three-fold booklet containing creation and production notes.

If you can get past the fact that the movie probably isn't 'cool', you'll find a movie that is very watchable and funny. Both of my kids love it, and it's one I don't mind watching, either.
I saw this movie like 10 years ago when I was twelve, it still wonderfull to me thought, and if you like fantasy, other world, charm, and good stories, everything is here!!!
I was totally captivated by this fantasy & never tired from watching it again and again. Jim Henson's a brilliant artist and redefined entertainment for kids and adults - his imagination and storytelling blend a totally original style of playfulness, darkness and humor which had me hooked.
For my will is as strong as yours and my kingdom is as great. Sarah: Damn I could never remember that line. Then she looks at Jareth and says " You have no power over me." Who doesn't remember this movie when they were young and not get tired of it? I remember my brother and I watched this a lot when we were younger and then forgot about it years later. I then saw a vid on youtube and thanks to that it got me interested in seeing the film again. My bro and I watched it again and notice some stuff like of how in the beginning you clearly see the books and toys that Sarah have with the creatures that later appear in the Labyrinth to the face of Bowie on 3 seperate pieces of a rock thing where Hoggle is given the peach by Jareth. Something always bugged me when I was watching a scene particulary the ball room scene. Did anyone noticed one of the dancers (besides Jareth) who wore a long hat and long nose type mask was always following/stalking Sarah? Moving on, this is the story of a girl who learns i guess grow up while trying to get back her baby brother after wishing him away and makes friends along the way. Hoggle had good character development from a cheat to a coward to a brave and loyal friend. Ludo is adorable and Sir Didymus was awesome. Jareth what more to say he's freaking awesome good or bad (prefer bad LOL). Sarah seemed a little childish and bratty but still you got to admit that dress was pretty. Jareth was cocky, sexy and yet in pain like he longed for something more...I wasn't sure why many believe that Jareth loved Sarah. It seemed like he was just distracting her so she could forget about Toby but hey us fans can dream can't we? The songs were good especially Underground and Within You. Fave scenes has to be any scene with Jareth (especially the ballroom and escher staircase scene). I always wondered what would happen after Sarah returns to her world and am happy to tell ya that there is a sequel (its a manga actually). Movies like Labyrinth are to bring out our imagination and this does just that. Watch Labyrinth with your kids or friends or family, its still a classic and will never be old.
She's a girl who's mad at her mother's second marriage, and the child who took her place- her baby half brother. He's the Goblin King, the granter of wishes that are best forgotten. The setting is allegory and the journey, life. Sarah is young, impetuous and tired of the restrictions that society places on teenagers to keep them from growing up too fast. Her parents are happy, modern and determined to make a blended family within the new religious framework for the nineteen nineties- where the home is still paramount, but the tradition of Adam and Eve, until death do we part, has been replaced by the more Wiccan concept of handfasting. She's a product of this world and, ultimately, represents the generation that will finally bring it together. The story weaves like a Celtic trinity knot, ending where it begins as she puzzles and discovers her way through the Labyrinth of life, experiencing the promises of Jareth, the Goblin King and eventually seeing through the illusions around her and finding her way back to both reality and wonder. Does she keep the magic, lose her brother and allow Jareth a way into her life? Or does she grow up, learn to see through the walls around her and manage to find the strength to have it all? Tatianna Anne Jindra On YouTube https://badfantasyrx.blogspot.com/2016/09/labyrinth.html From water, flung into being. Emerging from no when, then, the Labyrinth. Shaped from star dirt, all that matters. The joy or sorrow of its wending Gordian Knot Flowing from what we see in the child’s mouth Pushing an ever growing burden of memory before. Allusion, both ways. No Hob to trick, instead a Swan A shower of rings and things, The promises of a Goblin King, Of the devil, having stolen the unicorn’s horn.
good thing this movie is in stock. My sister loves this movie. Its her favorite and you know what ? I quite enjoy it myself. My sisters all time favorite movie. cool movie oh and Toby is so cute.
For anyone who is a fan of Jim Henson. This is a fun movie for anyone at any age. David Bowie is Jareth the Goblin King who obeys the wish of Sarah, played by Jennifer Connelly. Sarah wishes her step brother away due to her being annoyed at having to babysit him. She doesn't realize that her made up story of a land where goblins live, ruled by their king. When wished to the goblins will come a take wished away children to live with them. Realizing her mistake and finding out she really does care for her young step brother Sarah is taken to Jareth's world where she will have to run a labyrinth. If she can reach the end before time is up then her and her brother can go home. If not then her brother will become a goblin.
Sarah wishes for her baby brother away and the Goblin King grants her wish. She realizes what she's done and has to rescue Toby. Along the way she finds friends in Ludo, Sir Didymus and eventually Hoggle. The songs are great. The acting is good. A beloved imaginative classic that the whole family can watch.
I was 3 when the film was released and even then i loved it, with the glittery sets, catchy music and funny creatures. When i grew a little older, i loved it even more as its a classic fantasy adventure story. I soooo wanted to be Sarah, fighting Jareth and his goblins and making new friends. I especially love the gorgeous ballroom sequence as its the ultimate 'make believe' moment. The Bog of Eternal Stench is great cos its soooooo gross!! I used to have Labyrinth on tape followed with the making off documentary, which i watched a million times...then it got taped over!! Now with the glorious DVD re-release i not only own my favourite film again, but i also have the full making off documentary, which provides a humourous and in-depth behind the scenes look at the film and its characters, and is equally as fantastic as the film. I also have the cool soundtrack (featuring 'As The World Falls Down' so i can pretend to be Sarah in the ballroom sequence!). The magical sets, gorgeous costumes, fantastic creatures, exciting and easy storyline and the two brilliant performances from David and Jennifer are the reasons why I LOVE THIS FILM!!
I've been watching this movie since I was born, it's a wonderful escape into the fantasy land of the Labyrinth and the goblin city. A must-see for any fantasy lovers. I even forced all my friends to watch it. We quote it regularly. This movie doesn't get half the attention it deserves as a Jim Henson masterpiece.
I have always loved this film! And like others have said, David Bowie makes the ultimate bad guy. You must watch it
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.
A marvelous and magical flick for all ages. Jennifer Connelly was such a major hottie back in the 80's yet she still is, this is a must see!
Hi, Im from Denmark. I saw Labyrinth when I was about 7 or 8. I was fascinated from the first time. I never saw the begining, and thats why I think I kept looking for this movie in stores and in the weekly tv-guide. I did that for years, untill a month ago or so. I bought the movie in a fantastic store. The guy had orderd it home for another guy, but he never came and picked it up, so I got it! Lucky me! Labyrinth is my very favorite movie. I love it so much. The movie was never realied in Denmark, so it was pure luck that I got it!! I have seen it for sooo many times now, and I still love it. I got the soundtrack too, and i LOVE As the world falls down. Oh god, that look in Bowies eyes, in the scene were they are dancing, him and Sarah. Its soo beautiful, sweet and a little bit sad too. This movie is a movie you got to watch. but if you dont like magic and wird things and stuff like that, I dont think its a movie for you. Anyway, I love it! I dont even want people to borrow it... They may hurt it.... Watch it! I wish I could givce it 10 stars... And 20 to Bowie.
This is the best movie! David Bowie is the coolest person, and he is hot, hot, hot! I love the little Catapillar at the beginning, he is soooo cute! Me and my older sister think that this is the best movie, and will have it for the rest of our lives!
I absolutely adore this film, and always will. I was a budding magician in the late 80's, and so many magical moments in this film are permanently etched in my brain. I was in a drama class where we had the assignment of quoting lines from a favorite film, T.V. show, or whatever we were familiar with and thought might be effective in conveying vulnerability, emotion, whatever would sieze those precious few moments we had on stage. I chose the following scene from Labyrinth (which I know I can spare you all the details of, knowing what I assume you know), performed solo and with great effect (forgive me if I do not quote it exactly, it's been about a decade): '' How you turn my world you precious thing. You starve and near exhaust me. Everything I've done I've done for you. I move the stars for no one. You've run so long, you've run so far. You're eyes can be so cruel. Just as I can be so cruel. Live without your sunlight. Love without your heartbeat. I can't live within you.'' I loved this film. Magically- Jennifer, once the Magician
Travel into a world of fantasy where nothing seems possible and everything is possible. By buyinth ''Labyrinth'', you take a jurney into the mind of a teennage girl named Sarah (Jennifer Connelly). Sarah has always been into fairy tales and magic...but she always had one favorite book....''Labyrinth''. She would always recite the words...until one night that was. She wishes for the goblins to take away her baby brother, and the goblins do so. Now Sarah (Connelly), has to travel her way through the labyrinth. She needs to get to the center, to the castle, to get her brother from Jareth (David Bowie), the Goblin King. With challenges like the Bog of Eternal Stench and the Oubliette ect, Sarah still won't give up. Jareth (Bowie) needs to think of more to stop her. There are much laughs and even some thrills is the smash hit ''Labyrinth''....buy it!
a beautiful movie for both kids and adults alike. a wonderful form of escapism and the fact that david bowie stars in it is always a plus ;) i have watched this movie since i was a kid and it is still one of my favorites. wonderful soundtrack as well.
When I first was going to see this movie. I was like this is going to be dumb. But, to my suprise I loved it. It became my fave movie of all time. I also in a weird way fell in love with david's charcter.
I saw this movie, and I was amazed. The Labyrinth is so amazing! The way everything is¿it's hard to describe¿I can just say it was magical!
