Reviews

Three popular adventure movies. 'MirrorMask' (2005) was written by acclaimed comic book writer Neil Gaiman and directed by his frequent illustrator Dave McKean. The story follows Helena (Stephanie Leonidas), a 15-year-old girl whose parents are circus performers, and who wishes that she could run away from home to join the real world. When her mother (Gina McKee) falls ill, Helena is convinced that it's her fault. Slipping into a fantastical dream world, Helena has to search for the fabled MirrorMask so she can heal the White Queen (McKee), and heal her mother. But as Helena further explores this strange world of unusual creatures, she starts to question whether she is really dreaming at all. In 'Labyrinth' (1986), suburban girl Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) is forced to babysit her baby brother, and she wishes for goblins to take him away. When her wish comes true, the Goblin King (David Bowie) tells her she can rescue her brother only by negotiating the labyrinth that leads to the Goblin Castle. Finally, in 'The Dark Crystal' (1982), Jen (Jim Henson), the last of an elfin race, can only restore light to the world by retrieving the missing shard of the Dark Crystal. His quest is complicated by evil forces who want to use the crystal to destroy all life.

This set appears to be the same versions of the DVDs as on the previous Collector's Editions, complete with "Making Of" featurettes. The transfers are clear and the sound is crisp. If you don't already own copies of these films, this represents a great value buy.

Bargain alert! Bargain alert! I'm in agreement with previous reviewers- a great value & well put together box-set! Three quality films and extra's galore. I'd only previously seen `Labyrinth' (years ago when I was a kid) before buying this collection, but even so...I really enjoyed all three films with consecutive viewings, films that might not be the best, but which are certainly the weirdest examples of fantasy on celluloid in the previous twenty years, which juxtapose each other very nicely in this set. `Labyrinth', `Dark Crystal' and `Mirrormask' are each in the great children's fantasy tradition i.e. based in lavish other-worldly realms, which explore some quite dark themes and use frightening imagery, as their mysteries are revealed to the viewer. So while not suitable for very young children...perfect fun for youngsters wanting to sample compelling, vivid, ground-breaking fantasy films of their era's that can't help but make a lasting impression on the developing mind.

`Labyrinth' (10/10)...

Despite having aged the least well (e.g. `80's hair-do's, synthesised music etc) it's easily the most atmospheric and absorbing of the three films. Memorable puppets, original music, grotesque creatures, hilarious characters, an absorbing quest...all combine to create pure magic.

`Dark Crystal' (7/10)...

With eerily excellent puppeteeing throughout and pitch-perfect voice performances this oddity of a film is an enjoyable, if frightening mix of classic fantasy themes with modern special effects (of their time). But it just doesn't deliver huge amounts of compelling story, the story is clever, definitely, but somehow difficult to engage with, perhaps due to the lack of human protagonists. But it's still an absorbing movie.

`Mirrormask' (8/10)...

Of course, we all remember Jim Henson for bringing us those fuzzy, adorable animal puppets and their variety show. But Henson also produced some very memorable, intriguing fantasy films, and after his death his production company has continued that tradition. "The Jim Henson Fantasy Film Collection" brings together three classic films from Henson and his company.

"Labyrinth" becomes a problem for teenage Sarah, who is stuck babysitting her crying baby stepbrother. But when she idly wished that the goblins would steal him, she never expected it to happen -- or that the Goblin King Jareth (David Bowie) would challenge her if she tries to get her brother back.

Now Sarah has only thirteen hours to navigate a changing, hazardous maze, with Jareth's castle at the center of it. To find her way, she will have to befriend strange creatures and avoid lethal bogs, nasty fairies, head-jugglers, and finally Jareth himself -- or her brother will be turned into a goblin himself.

"The Dark Crystal" is the heart of this movie, where on another world, there are two strange races -- the enormous, gentle, peaceful Mystics, and the nasty, vulture-like, vicious Skekses. They are somehow connected to a massive crystal that was broken long ago, and now a shard is missing from it. What's more, three suns are about to come into conjunction, and the shard has to be back in place.

The Mystics have cared for one of the last Gelflings, an orphan named Jen. As the conjunction approaches, they send him out to find the lost shard. Along the way, Jen finds new friends who assist him in his quest, including another Gelfling. But can they avoid the Skekses? And what will happen when the suns line up, and the crystal is completed?

You get the special collectors editions for Labyrinth and Dark Crystal which you would otherwise be paying twice as much for separately! What a bargain little bundle! Great old family films!

i was given this for chrismtas and couldn't be happier. I wouldnt have thought to put the three dvds together (dark crystals- a film my brother loves, labyrinth a film i'd watch on disney channel all the time when i was younger and mirrormask, a film we both love now im older) but it so simply goes together- i guess i just never mad the jim henson link when i was a child. but it's a great set. if im bored and fed up then here's no other way to perk me up.
