Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value Boxed Set 25 Jun 2007
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dance magic dance! 17 Nov 2007
By Fantasy Lore TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
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)...

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain! 1 April 2008
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!
