Movie Review by MarkSchitts
June 23rd, 2018

The Dark Side Of Sesame Street

Having never gotten around to seeing "Labyrinth" when I was but a wee tyke - Viewing it now, as an adult - I must say that I was tres' disappointed to find out that the late, great pop-icon, David Bowie sure didn't have the acting chops to convincingly play a wicked goblin king. Nope. He didn't.

And, speaking about the atrocious-looking fright-wig that Bowie wore - That, to me, was nothing but a source of "fly-away-hair" annoyance. It really was.

And, on top of that - Labyrinth's decidedly overlong running time of 100 minutes certainly played against its story being able to hold my full attention throughout its entire duration.

Anyway - Yes. Indeed. There were some very entertaining moments in this pre-CGI production. But I couldn't help but find its story to be very reminiscent of "Alice In Wonderland".
