Labyrinth Returns to Cinemas new [re: ]  

Labyrinth is making its way around the US in special sing-a-long showings.

If I understand correctly, the movie is played like usual but during the musical sequences, subtitles are added so the audience can sing along more easily.

Here is a video all about this.

Thanks Adam! This is cool and in fact I've bought tickets to see the Dark Crystal and Labyrinth back to back at the Prince Charles cinema in London on Feb 16th. It won't have subtitles but I'm pretty sure the audience will still be singing.... I can't wait.
Oh and that Jareth lookalike was awful

Re: Labyrinth Returns to Cinemas new [re: Adam]  

Pray for me as I'm about to watch Labyrinth for the first time this coming week-end. We were talking about Jennifer Connelly with my colleagues yesterday, and I found out that one of them had Labyrinth on DVD, because his wife loves it (he hasn't watched it and doesn't want to, though).

I'm a bit anxious about this experience, I must say.

Re: Labyrinth Returns to Cinemas new [re: Diamond Frog]  

I'm excited for you DiamondFrog. Now what kind of advice can I give a pre Labyrinth Bowiefan?

O.K... there's lots of subtext in the film...it's more an adult film than childrens movie. Girl becoming a woman, sexually maturing etc, learning to deal with reality, finding life is harder than she thought it would be... never give up on your childlike innocence for good...etc.etc. I tell you this so that you don't dismiss the story straight away. Because it usually goes over peoples heads.

What else? Oh yeah, you will fall in love with Jennifer Connelly if you haven't already. Or you may possibly find yourself turning gay for David Bowie...strange feelings start happening when he's on screen...beware.

If you can peel yourself away from the fantasy, you may appreciate the genius that was Jim Henson. But just peel away for a moment then allow yourself to forget.

O.K. The songs.... you will probably think straight away being a preLabyBowiefan, that his songs and performance are cheesy and cringy. Wrong. They work perfectly for the movie and if you listen closely to the lyrics during the Ballroom scene, you may find youself hearing mature words for young minds. Bowie's acting in it is perfect... just remember that and if you're having trouble adjusting...try and imagine Michael Jackson being the Goblin King.... No..Bowie is Jareth, he is perfect.

Whatever you do DiamondFrog... DO NOT LOOK AT BOWIE'S CROTCH.You will never think of anything else during the film and all that I've said will be ruined. Remember, his tights were a deliberate ploy to attract female fans...do not go there.

Thanks for your support. I've owned the soundtrack for some time and am already in love with Jennifer, so I think I'm fully prepared now.

This is the movie where Jennifer Connelly gets down on a double-ended dildo, right?

Re: Labyrinth Returns to Cinemas new [re: Chinchilla]  

Chinchilla, I think you reviewed the movie perfectly.

Although I saw the film (and bought it) later in my young life (I was 3 when it came out), I find I'm a db fan not because of the film. It's just a side venture. I like Henson movies anyway (but that's not the point).

Good luck, watching, DiamondFrog. May the crotch not be with you

In reply to:

DO NOT LOOK AT BOWIE'S CROTCH.


How was I supposed to resist??? Those pants are pure evil. And Jennifer, what can I say, she was only 15, but... OK, now I'm feeling gay and a paedophile, isn't it great?

Anyway, I think the dialogues were really good, great humour, but it's still a children's movie.
