    Thank you for the very interesting Link!

    Ooooo! They really did dredge this up from the land of the nearly precariously close to being written off and forgotten! Love it. Thanks for sharing. Insightful stuff!

    I want to see Dark Crystal. I hear it's amazing.
  5. bandit Well-Known Member

    You know, believe it or not it's not one of my favorites. It's definitely impressive and the puppeteering is tremendous. Still, it's not one I could get really into. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I didn't care for the main character. It's a slow moving plot, which is good for building atmosphere but when you combine those elements, it just doesn't work for me. Still, I know it's considered one of the superior Henson films for most.

    You are a fast-paced movie type for sure.
  7. bandit Well-Known Member

    Hahaha! You'd be surprised. I don't mind slow build up....so long as it's building to something. Even if it's kind of cerebral, I can handle something like that if I can sink my teeth into it. For some reason, though, I just couldn't with this movie. But I do think the technology used for this one was really impressive. There's no question there. It LOOKS amazing.
  8. mostlikemokey Active Member

    Yeah, good point. It has to have depth.
    Personally, I like stuff that's sappy but has action and depth.
  9. mostlikemokey Active Member

    Is that a weird combo?
  10. bandit Well-Known Member

    Nope! Sounds like the perfect Tarbaby of movies.
    Hmmm well I would describe the original Dark Crystal as a moody, fantasy adventure story with rather dire undertones. The prequel sound like it has the makings of a tragic paint by numbers. How did we get from point A to point Doomsday!?
    ^_^ Makes me curious. I'll probably pick it up. I mean, this could enrich the story even more and give more context to the actions that take place in the movie. I mean, that's the idea anyway.

    C'mon! I DID care for the Gelflings... very much so!

    It is AMAZING if you are into art. It has brilliant visuals, music, atmosphere and the details are incredible! I even like the story. To me it is better than Tolkien (I just dont like hairy feet. LOL!)
  13. MrBloogarFoobly Well-Known Member

    The Dark Crystal isn't about story. It's about creating a world that has been for thousands of years, and will be there long after the movie has ended. To that end, Henson and company succeeded. I'm not a big fan of the story myself, but I agree with Lazlo when he says it's better than Tolkien. I've never liked Lord of the Rings.

    I finally got the book and I really love it! I think it is better than the first volume.
