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

A classic

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

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.

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)

25 From 82: My Favorite Films Of 1982 (25 movies items)

"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 even the most discerning fan of the genre.

Film Journal - January 2014 (98 movies items)

"  Strange, barely describes the movie. I remember, when I first saw the film, and found it really odd, interesting, and very much depressing and bleak, at times. Now, it's one of my favorite movies, and it gets better with each viewing. "

“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.

My movie year 2013 (659 movies items)

"27.6. (Kirjasto-DVD) Visuaalisesti komeaa fantasiaa Tolkienin ja Lucasin jalanjäljillä. Tekijöiden Muppetti-taustan huomaa ja käsinuket, lavasteet sekä tehosteet pärjäävät nykypäivän 3D-animaatioille vaivatta. Audiopuolikin on kunnossa, mutta ulkonäöllisesti eläimistä mallinnetut hahmot ovat luonteiltaan sangen yksiulotteisia. Juoni on pahimmillaan kliseinen ja naiivi, enkä oikeastaan itse pahemmin tälläisistä fantasiasaduista muutenkaan perusta. Vaivaahan The Dark Crysta"

Movie Reviews (part 6) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Impressive fantasy without a single human in it. Great creations from Jim Hensons puppet factory. The ending is extremly intense for it's time and target group and let me devastated for years. The atmosphere is out of this world. The Downs: It is slow-moving and the story could have needed an extra polish. "

Films and the critics who hate them (743 movies items)

"The screenplay by David Odell, based on a story by Mr. Henson, is without any narrative drive whatever. It's without charm as well as interest. - Vincent Canby, New York Times"
