“Labyrinth” has it all – fairies, goblins, kings and adventure

“Labyrinth” is a classic fantasy movie with a great and understandable plot. The characters are strong as is the acting and the wardrobe is outstanding. The ending was a perfect surprise and the music was wonderful. The special effects, however, were a bit dreadful. The movie was filmed in the 80s so you can’t expect special effects like the “Avatar.”
Sarah (Jennifer Connelly), a young teenage girl, dreams of a fantasy land with goblins and fairies. One evening she is stuck babysitting her brother (Toby Froud), who won’t stop crying. She calls upon the Goblin King (David Bowie) to take the child away, thinking nothing would happen. Soon the lights go out and the house is silent. When she checks to see if Toby is ok, she is confronted by the Goblin King. He has taken the baby away as she asked him to do, but she wants her brother back. The Goblin King says she has 13 hours to solve his labyrinth and find her brother. On her wild adventure, she meets a grumpy but loving goblin named Hoggle (Brian Henson), a giant beast named Ludo (Ron Muek), and a brave fox named Didymus (Dave Goelz).
“Labyrinth” is one of my favorites; it always puts me in a great mood. If you’re into classic cheesy fantasy movies, then this movie is perfect for you. It’s got fairies, goblins, and kings, doesn’t get much better than that. You can find “Labyrinth” on Netflix.
