David Bowie Is, 2013.
A documentary tying in to London’s Victoria & Albert Museum’s David Bowie Is exhibition”.
A lot of well deserved praise has been heaped on the work and life of David Bowie since his very sad death in January this year. However, in 2013, three years before he died, an exhibition was created by the V&A to chart his life and success as artist and art.
The exhibition was such a success it has been on tour ever since, and the documentary / virtual exhibition was recorded on its last night in London before it went on tour. Titled David Bowie Is, the exhibition creators cleverly left the sentence open ended in order to allow each person to finish it for themselves. The documentary makes use of this and labels each segment something else starting with David Bowie is.
Like all the best fairy tales, Jim Henson’s 1986 film Labyrinth is a much more grown-up effort than its fantasy trappings let on. Sure, it’s directed by the man who introduced both The Muppets and Sesame Street to the world, but don’t be fooled by all of the puppets and cute creatures and catchy songs: this is a film geared at children but actually about the end of childhood. Bittersweet, that.
On its face, Labyrinth offers a traditional take on the hero’s journey codified by Joseph Campbell: Jennifer Connelly’s sixteen-year-old Sarah wishes her baby brother would be taken away by Goblin King Jareth (the late, great David Bowie) and, when he is, must travel to a fantasy realm to rescue him. On a deeper and darker level, however, the screenplay by Monty Python’s own Terry Jones is the story of a young woman maturing into an adult, »

Well here we are and it's Monday and I'm Jason from Mnpp and this is your weekly "Beauty vs Beast" moment. Ya ready? This Friday (otherwise known as my birthday!) Paul Feig's loooooong awaited and ultra discussed reboot of Ghostbusters comes out. Maybe you've heard something? Something about ovaries or something? I don't know. All's I know is the reboot's got four of the funniest lady-people who make funny today in Melissa McCarthy & Kristen Wiig & Kate McKinnon & Leslie Jones, and I'm all in. Hell, I even liked the much-reviled trailer.
In fact the only thing that's given me a sad face in the lead up to Ghostbusters was when I scanned through the cast list and I realized that Rose Byne's not in the movie. How great would Byrne have been playing the dastardly William Atherton role from the original? But then I did just re-watch Feig's previous film, »

Jason from Mnpp here using the ocassion of another's week's "Beauty vs Beast" to give good goblin love to one of our favorite 80s kid's movies: Jim Henson's Labyrinth is turning 30 today! The film was released on June 27th 1986, and to folks my age it became pretty much an instant classic. Labyrinth tells a tale as old as time - girl babysits, girl wishes baby away to David Bowie, David Bowie's innappropriate bulge mesmerizes an eight-year-old me, so on and so forth. What's not to love? I saw Jennifer Connolly on the subway once and it took all the restraint inside of me not to yell, "Your mother is a fraggin' aardvark!" at her.
Previously It was the start of the endless summer season last week so what better way to 'celebrate" than by looking back at the romantic-comedy that dragged it out to (500) Days - in the »
Chrissie Zullo has created some really cool original artwork exclusively for Fandango, like her Women of Star Wars, Deadpool and Wonder Woman pieces, but it was her Labyrinth print below that we have a soft spot for. The piece beautifully captures David Bowie as the Goblin King Jareth; Jennifer Connelly as Sarah, the distraught sister who must journey through the Labyrinth to rescue her baby brother; and Ludo, Hoggle and the rest of the magical...

The fantasy musical is about a teenage girl named Sarah (Jennifer Connelly), who has 13 hours to solve a majestic labyrinth and rescue her baby brother Toby from the sinister Goblin King, played by the multi-talented David Bowie.
Today, the movie is considered a cult classic and loved by so many!
Filled with a cast of wonderful puppets, which were brought to life by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, we here at Cineplex are very excited to be releasing this coming-of-age tale onto the big screen again in all its magical glory! So mark your calendars now for this one night only event! »

Labyrinth, starring late rock icon Davie Bowie as the Goblin King, opened in theaters 30 years ago today. Though Labyrinth — a dark, wonderfully weird, glam rock semi-musical populated mostly by puppets — was never going to be a movie that won over a wide audience, it’s still wild to think about how poorly it did upon release given the film now has a secure place in pop culture history and in Bowie’s legacy. It opened at no. 8 at the U.S. box office and earned less than $13 million, barely over half of its reported budget. It was the final film directed by Jim Henson, and in the aftermath of Labyrinth’s poor reception, son Brian said of his father, “that was the closest I've seen him to turning in on himself and getting quite depressed.” Though Henson never got to witness the full fandom that would amass around the movie, »

It’s taken us thirty years but we’ve finally figured out what Sarah did wrong with those guards…
We love Labyrinth, it’s a film that shaped many of this writer’s formative years and we can’t believe that it turns thirty this year; but it’s a bittersweet anniversary as David Bowie sadly passed away earlier this year. To most of the team he will always be the Goblin King and his turn as Jareth is so magnetic and charismatic that you can’t help but secretly want Sarah to just forget about the baby and run away with him.
Our heroine Sarah was played by a young Jennifer Connelly. Sarah is a sixteen year old girl who doesn’t like her new stepmother and younger brother. After being left babysitting a crying baby again she wishes that her brother Toby be taken away by the goblins. »

There just aren’t enough new board games commemorating hits movies from the 1980s. In an effort to help rectify that situation, a company called River Horse has partnered up with The Jim Henson Company to create a Labyrinth board game, based on the 1986 fantasy film starring the late David Bowie and a young Jennifer […]

“I wish the goblins would come and take you away! Right now! “
Labyrinth screens midnights this weekend (April 15th and 16th) at The Tivoli Theater as part of their ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ Midnight Series.
Nothing like a crummy day of babysitting your little brother to make you wish him away to the Goblin King! What’s that, you didn’t mean to? Well…time is of the essence…you have 13 hours in which to solve the labyrinth, before your baby brother becomes a goblin!
Labyrinth, the charming 1986 fantasy helmed by the late Jim Henson is lovely to see and a joy to experience. Taking its visual cues from Henson’s The Dark Crystal and its story from a mix of Alice in Wonderland and the Wizard of Oz, this is a classic story about growing up without relinquishing your childlike wonder. Jennifer Connolly leads a cast of 5 humans, »

With the resurgence of vinyl, and many classic game soundtracks seeing a re-release on the format, the Flickering Myth writers look back at some of their favourites; next up is Emma Withington with 1995’s Panzer Dragoon…
Turkey Dinosaur fueled junkie that I was in my early years (with a penchant for rusks), I latched onto the Sega Saturn like a limpet, quickly becoming obsessed with the demo for Panzer Dragoon Zwei at the age of four – playing Episode 3 over and over again. Something about it was hugely engaging and I needed, not wanted, needed more. After obtaining and completing Panzer Dragoon Zwei it wasn’t long before the original Panzer Dragoon entered the building and along with it a soundtrack so powerful it is permanently embedded within my earliest memories.
From Team Andromeda, Panzer Dragoon is set in a post apocalyptic world in which humans live in tribal communities and dangerous, »

“Do you know what they call a Quarter Pounder with cheese in France?”
Another brilliant lineup of midnight movies for the ‘Reel Late at The Tivoli’ to kick off the 2016 season. It’s a typically good variety of titles that will draw the late night movie buff crowd with a couple of retro surprises. The Midnight Movie experience has always catered to a college-age crowd and that’s the way it should be. Rocky Horror Picture Show with live shadow cast with the Samurai Electricians kicks off the new schedule on April 8th and 9th. The oldest film this time is the original The Evil Dead from 1983 and the most recent is last year’s winner of 6 Oscars (and deserving of at least 4 more) Mad Max: Fury Road. There’s a Miyazaki thrown in there for attendance insurance and a handful of standards including Blade Runner and Pulp Fiction. I »

Oscars 2016 live: follow the ceremony and every Academy award winner

They’re a concept artist’s dream and an actor’s biggest challenge. Any film that involves mythical characters automatically becomes a hundred times cooler, and a thousand times more creative.
Here’s a brief rundown of our cinematic top five.
1. Tinkerbell, Hook
There are a few representations of this iconic fairy to choose from, but Julia Roberts’ portrayal has to be our favourite. With her ginger pixie cut and cold-shoulder attitude, Roberts gives the usually boisterous Tink a grown-up makeover in Steven Spielberg’s 1991 Peter Pan prequel.
What makes this fairy great is her relatability. Yes, she’s a mythical character of tiny proportions who can fly, but she’s also someone who has fallen victim to a bad case of unrequited love. Once again Roberts tugs at our heartstrings, proving that she’s just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.
