Genre: Adventure, Family Film, Fantasy
This is a classic from the 80’s and it has a wonderful original narrative 🙂 . The first thing I have to mention about this film is the fantastic David Bowie (don’t think anyone else would have played the Goblin King 😛 ) and the amazing talent of Jim Henson. You have to appreciate the puppets even if the CGI on some of them have been affect by time. The main actress (Jennifer Connelly) plays a great part and you do believe in her character 🙂 . The downside to this film is appears a little dated and the songs aren’t great. However, there is a kind of nostalgic magic to the story of this film that keeps the entire family entertained. My favourite scene is the “Ball in a bubble” scene (when you watch it you will know what I mean) as it has the most magic and is a turning point in the narrative 😀 . Also I would love to know how Sarah explained it all to her parents in the end. A great film to watch at least once 😛 . Enjoy 🙂
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
