Marthaeus Autolykos Oh, I always loved how the puppets talked directly to his crotch at one point. This was one of the many movies playing in the background as my parents and their friends played AD&D when I was a kid.
It's also amusing to me that as many conversations come up about this (including one about this yesterday I had in a coffee shop with some people) that people seem to forget that stuffing was rather commonplace among tights-wearing rock stars. Don't simply jump to conclusions...

The Goblin King I think it's obvious I love this movie, It always warms my heart to see it get a bit of love (None of my friend's are fans of the movie, I'm always arguing with one that David Bowie is better than Batman).

I have actions figures of Jareth, one of them talks and it amuses me to no end.

Burn Don't bother with the manga "sequel," I flipped through it the last time I was at Barns & Noble - just terrible. However there is a Dark Crystal manga that's a prequel to the film and not too shabby from the looks of it.

Kirbykid just got this again recently on DVD, hadn't watched it yet. I was too young to notice Bowie's package, so I KNOW I'm gonna end up seeing it when I see the movie again... Thanks Guys...

Sadly, the manga isn't anywhere near as good (story wise AND drawing wise) as the original movie. I've written better fan-fiction (yes, I was one of those people back in high school). Pretty covers though.

Also, Sting and Mick Jagger were considered for the roles of Jareth (I think Sting would've been an interesting choice; he seems like the type who could also pull off a ruffly shirt and still be sexy).

alittlebirdytoldmeso I remember rewatching this when I was in High School after seeing it as a kid and my best friend and I couldn't stop laughing our asses off about the whole tight tights thing. I tried to get my 6-year-old cousin to watch this and he practically died of boredom, though. What the hell is with the Pokemon generation?

That, and "The Princess Bride."

GRUMPYNZ This movie rocks!

Haha, and gotta love the "cameo" in Flight of the Conchords.

Hangie "Bret, It's me 1986 David Bowie from the movie labyrinth"

This movie is a good family movie despite who confusing some of the scenes that are confusing for kids ( or atleast were to me)

Shrubfest ITS NOT HIM!
Sorry. I have the DVD too. They had a bloke under his cloak to do all the fancy bits....

Pandajuice I agree that it's pretty hard to miss. I remember averting my eyes, even when I was kid, at his ridiculously tight pants and giant package. Bowie is awesome when he's spinning those crystal balls though.
Apr 30th, 2008 05:34 PM
Shrubfest Fair enough. It's probably just because the rest of us were looking for it on purpose.....
Apr 30th, 2008 05:16 PM
executioneer well i guess i was just focusing on other things
Apr 30th, 2008 05:12 PM
Shrubfest How did you MISS it? Its fairly apparant.....
Apr 30th, 2008 04:22 PM
executioneer yeah i liked this movie a lot better before someone pointed out bowie's package
Apr 30th, 2008 02:32 PM
WryBeauty This is my all time favorite movie. David Bowie was my first celebrity crush. Now I feel really strange when I watch it and see his junk in those tight white pants.

Copper Fantastic movie! I *still* want that crystal ball.

Nifty fact - There's a manga out called "Return to Labyrinth" that continues Toby's adventures after he's hit high school and gets pulled back into the world by Jareth.

Scary fact - They originally wanted Michael Jackson for Jareth.

I can't imagine anyone but Bowie with that hair...

MarioRPG I've always been hesitant to see this movie, and it's based purely on the cover / poster picture. I just don't know if I could stand looking at that for over an hour.

Orastella I love this movie so very much!
Apr 29th, 2008 02:24 PM
GingerGrrl22 I LOOOVE this movie!! The worm and the wiseman with his hat are awesome!!
Apr 29th, 2008 02:21 PM
Invisible One of the best movies around! That and the Dark Crystal! I have the Anniversary Edition DVD of the Labyrinth and watch it all the time!
