You remind me of the babe! The babe with the power! The power of voodoo! Few David Bowie fans would cite his songs in the 1986 fantasy epic "Labyrinth" as the best music of his career. But who cares?! Bowie is awesome, and yeah, these songs aren't great, but come on! It's Bowie in a weird AF muppet movie! "Labyrinth," created by Jim Henson and his talented crew of puppeteers, is filled to the castle towers with incredible production design and a massive, varied assortment of strange creatures. The seemingly ageless Jennifer Connelly plays Sarah, a teenager who accidentally wishes her baby brother away and into the arms of a goblin king. Oops! At least he's a pretty sexy goblin king. If you loved "Labyrinth" as a kid, chances are you still love it. If you didn't grow up with it... well... it might be somewhat laborious. Old Millennials Remember Movies hosts Tyler and Angela are on opposite sides of that divide. Is Jareth the Goblin King dreamy? Creepy? Neither? Both? Does the way Sarah solve that confusing door riddle make any sense at all? And how traumatized was that baby actor after being surrounded by all those disgusting goblin puppets? The Old Millennials dive into all that and much more, because this movie is overstuffed with quests! Whatever you think about "Labyrinth," we can probably all agree on the two best elements. 1. David Bowie. 2. The real dog that carries around the puppet dog but is also occasionally a puppet for the close-ups. So sometimes it's puppet-on-dog and sometimes it's puppet-on-puppet. Either way, it's (expletive deleted) awesome! So grab your Hoggle, strap that Ludo, wash your Ambrosius, clear your Didymus and check out our episode on "Labyrinth!"
