Clean movie - watched as a family. Jim Henson did a great job! Probably too scary for young kids. My 9 & 12 loved it. There is almost 1 hour of behind the scenes (in the extras section) which really shows what went into the making of this film. That part was EXTREMELY good. I let my kids see a couple of the characters from the behind the scenes section first, so they would appreciate the movie a l... read more

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I got really intrigued and I definitely wanted to check it out. Eventually, I really did like it a lot but, somehow, it didn’t really blew me away though. First of all, on a technical level, it was indeed a really impressive feature. Indeed, those puppets and the sets just looked great and I really enjoyed the creatures, the characters and, basi... read more

Description: Jim Henson's fantasy epic The Dark Crystal doesn't take place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but like Star Wars it takes the audience to a place that exists only in the imagination and, for an hour and a half, on the screen. Recalling the worlds of J.R.R. Tolkien, Henson tells the story of a race of grotesque birdlike liza ... (more)

“Its been a LONG LONG time since i last seen this movie i couldnt even really remember what it was about other then it had puppets and was directed by Jim Henson oh yeah also it was about a crystal. The movie for only being 1 and a half hours fells more like two hours long with the slow build up begining that sets the story for the later half of the movie. Givin the limitations of what they were dealing with it was still great though the sets were amazing beautiful landscapes and great looking creatures. For it being a kids movie it does seem a little dark but hey back then you could get away with some crazy stuff and it still be considered PG. The movie itself is solid but nothing special its still worth the watch i love Jim Henson so thats why i gave it a rewatch.

Interesting film facts (393 movies items)

"The little hairy things that crawl across and that the Creatures eat are modified wind-up toy robots that run like crazy on two legs as a round rolling central body that houses the wind up motor. The wind-up key was removable. Early drafts of the script featured Jen and Kira traveling through the underworld where they encountered a race of underground mining creatures. This concept was later integrated by Jim Henson into Fraggle Rock and served as the partial basis for the story of The Power o"

"A creepy yet cool fantasy flick in which all of the characters are muppets. Back in the day, it was rare that a solid quality fantasy flick would come along. So even though the entire cast of this one are all muppets, there's still enough Tolkien style characters, macabre mysticism, not to mention an epic climaxing quest, to fulfill the needs of any fan of the genre.

Eventually, I really did like it a lot but, somehow, it didn’t really blew me away though. First of all, on a technical level, it was indeed a really impressive feature. Indeed, those puppets and the sets just looked great and I really enjoyed the creatures, the characters and, basically, the whole fantasy world they managed to create which was just fascinating. Frankly, I had never seen something like this before, a Fantasy Adventure only with some puppets, and the makers should be credited for trying to create something so original. On the downside, since you are dealing only with some puppets here, the whole thing tended to be really static and the action scenes were not ” read more
