Synopsis


Labyrinth
George Lucas produced and Jim Henson directed this gothic fantasy which pits living and breathing actors Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie (who, along with Trevor Jones, provides the film's music) against a motley collection of Muppet monsters. The film centers upon teenage Sarah (Connelly), who lives in a fantasy world of myth and magic, evil spells, and wondrous enchantment. She is baby-sitting her little brother when she cavalierly wishes that goblins would take him away. She gets her wish, and a coterie of goblins abduct him. She then encounters Jareth (David Bowie), the ruler of a mystical world one step removed from reality. He tells Sarah that the only way to get her brother back is to find her way through a M.C. Escher-like labyrinth and find the castle at the center. As she makes her way through the maze, she faces a number of horrific challenges (like the Bog of Eternal Stench) before she finds her way to the gravity-defying castle, where her brother is being held by the evil goblins. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

The Dark Crystal
Jim Henson ventures into Tolkien territory in his all-Muppet fantasy feature The Dark Crystal. The titular Crystal maintains equilibrium in a mythical kingdom. When the Crystal is broken, the evil Skeksis take over, killing off the good-guy Gelflings and enslaving everyone else. Two of the Gelflings have survived: Jen was raised by the all-knowing Mystics, while Kira grew up amongst the swamp-dwelling Podlings. Jen and Kira join forces to "heal" the precious Dark Crystal and restore order to their world. Adults may find the whole affair a little precious, while children may be disturbed by the film's mortality rate. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Terrific remasters, but this isn't what you get.

    These movies are terrific remasters. However, this 2-in-1 Blu-ray with this particular cover is not what you get. Being a collector, I grabbed this for 2 reasons: One, because it was a Brian Froud art edition, 2 movies in one. And two, to replace them both I already had on DVD. Instead, I got two Blu-rays, one of Labyrinth and one of The Dark Crystal. Granted, the 2 Blu-rays have the exact same extras and special features, so I'm very happy. But being a collector, I thought this is what I was going to get. Just be aware that this is not what you'll get; instead you'll likely get both Blu-rays separately. Still a great deal, though, if I say so myself.

    My family has always enjoyed these movies and now that I found them together on Bluray I took advantage of the good price. I think you will definitely enjoy these movies too.
