il grande cristallo nero, che regolava l'equilibrio dell'universo, si e' spezzato causando la divisione del mondo in buoni e cattivi. solo quando i tre soli convergeranno il cristallo potra' essere ricomposto, oppure i malvagi regneranno per sempre. un piccolo elfo, unico superstite della sua razza, ha l'incarico di trovare i frammenti del cristallo, in un viaggio ricco di avventure

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect in every way 10 July 2004
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a classic, a captivating and charming movie that remains in a class of its own. There's a spectacular array of creatures and a memorable plot with marvellous twists.
The fact is that all the species and characters come across as very real and believable - from the kindly and wise Mystics to the human Podlings to the awful and hideous Skeksis. The meal scene in the Skeksis castle is particularly vivid and memorable, although it's not for the squeamish! The visit to the lair of the witch Ogra is also quite humorous and spectacular, and I loved the little doggie, if it is a dog.
One of my favourite scenes is where the two Gelflings fall over a cliff and the girl spreads her wings, upon which the relieved boy exclaims: "But I don't have wings" to which the girl replies: "Of course not - you're a boy.". This is in the class of Lord of the Rings about 20 years before the latter was made, although it's probably not fair to compare the two.
Dark Crystal convinces with its world of believable puppets and impressive scenery, which adds a unique flavour to the film. I cannot fault this little gem on any aspect: the old myth is infused by new life here because of the amazing turns in the plot. The scenes are so colourful you cannot forget them, the characterization is of the highest calibre, and the cinematography is breathtaking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ground Breaker 18 Nov 2009
By Anne
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This was a highly original concept from the team behind the Muppets. I first saw it with my young sons back in 1982 and 27 years on it still possesses that magical quality to entertain people of all ages. Blu-ray certainly has enhanced the picture quality as opposed to the previous DVD version though I could not detect any difference in the sound. A treat for all to enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer brilliance!! 16 Mar 2001
Format:DVD
This is a film I have owned for many years on VHS and I have always been captivated by it. So, when I saw it was available on DVD I HAD to buy it and I have not been dissapointed. The sheer brilliance of what Jim Henson and his team created considering it was made almost 20 years ago is amazing!! What is also wonderful about this DVD is that the original colours have been wonderfully restored and I now notice things in the film that I never noticed on my VHS edition because they are so much easier to see. Some of the extras are brilliant as well, especially the documentary which is a fascinating insight into the making of this classic film! I have to say, I was a little dissapointed with the deleted scenes feature as I expected to have more commentary about why the scenes were deleted and also many of the scenes are just original takes on scenes that did make it into the film and were just altered slightly (sometimes u can't notice the difference other than the film quality).
However, if you have never seen this film, or if you are already a passionate Dark Crystal fan, I urge you to buy this DVD, it really is money well spent!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure magic! 8 Sep 2002
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
True, the quest story is as old as mankind, but here it is told in such a cinematically captivating and charming manner that this movie remains in a class of its own. You’ll find a spectacular array of creatures and marvelous twists in the plot. One of my favorite scenes is where the two Gelflings fall over a cliff, the girl spreads her wings, the boy says: “But I don’t have wings” to which the girl replies: “Of course not – you’re a boy.” The fact is that all the species come across as very real and believable – from the kindly and wise Mystics to the human Podlings to the awful and hideous Skeksis. The meal scene in the Skeksis castle is particularly vivid and memorable, although it’s not for the squeamish! The visit to the lair of the witch Ogra is also quite humorous and spectacular, and I loved the little doggie, if it is a dog. This is in the class of Lord of the Rings exactly 20 years before the latter was made, although it’s probably not fair to compare the two. For one thing, Dark Crystal convinces with its world of believable puppets, which adds a unique flavor to the film. I cannot fault this little gem on any aspect: the old myth is infused by new life here because of the marvelous turns in the plot, the scenes are so colorful you cannot forget them, the characterization is of the highest caliber, and the cinematography is breathtaking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare fantasy adventure 11 Jan 2002
Format:DVD
Those of us out there who are familiar with the work of Jim Henson and his team (Fraggle Rock, anyone?) should be more than a little surprised by this gothic fantasy adventure. The shadowy lighting effects and the cold image of evil resemble the work of director Tim Burton, and could be disturbing for young children. However, in true Henson style, the muppets do not let us down. We are treated to a dazzling array of master puppetry and the willowy world of the mystics and the skeksis is wonderfully portrayed through the eyes of naive Jen. The lack of human thespians only serves to make the fantasy more believable.
This a perfect example of what a child's movie should be-sweet, intelligent, and almost innocent.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute Classic! 4 Feb 2002
Format:DVD
I've been watching this film for as long as I can remember, and it's always had me hiding behind the couch! ... I fell in love with science fiction after watching this film, and I still have'nt got bored of it! This film combines everything you could wish for. There is the romance between Jen and Kira, the comical Fizzgig, the scary Ogra, there are action scenes, quiet scenses and joyous scenes with the Podlings. All this matched with the outstanding puppetry of Jim Henson and his crew. I'd recommend this movie to anyone who likes the wierd and wonderful, or just to anyone who appreciates a good movie!
