In case of Labyrinth, build wax wings....  
So when trying to decide what movie I'm going to see this weekend, I see that Labyrinth is playing for some reason. Yes, that Labyrinth. The one with David Bowie and muppets. Do I need to see that? I can't remember ever watching it all the way through, but I worry that I'll find it too silly. On the other hand, I do love me some David Bowie. Hmmm.... I guess this calls for a poll:

Poll #1036776 Labyrinth

Should I see Labyrinth on the big screen this weekend?

Yes, the power of David Bowie will heal you.
35(81.4%)
Good god, no! That movie was awful....
5(11.6%)
Why are you even asking this question when you haven't seen "Rescue Dawn" yet?!?!?
3(7.0%)

Excellent point!

Mr. Bowie's package will juggle you. You've been warned.

Well, it has been a while since I've been properly package-juggled....

Don't get me wrong, I love David Bowie with an all-consuming passion. But his film choices tend to be... well, silly was a pretty good word for it.

Labyrinth is a hokey, goofy, stupid movie. If you know that going in, you might have a good time.

B-b-but you have to agree that The Man Who Fell to Earth is great, right? And what about Absolute Beginners? Oooh, I think need to put Absolute Beginners on my netflix queue immediately....
doNUT!donutgirl on August 10th, 2007 01:22 pm (UTC)
Okay, I stand somewhat corrected. I haven't seen Absolute Beginners, but I just remembered that Bowie was pretty awesome (and not silly) in The Prestige and The Last Temptation of Christ. I just remember when I was in college and first becoming obsessed with Bowie, I expected all his films to be towering works of genius. And some of them just... aren't.

Well, if it helps your decision any--Labyrinth was written by Terry Jones.

It is quite a lot of fun and there's always Jennifer Connelly to gawk at.

Hmmm... those two facts do sweeten the pot a little.

Pretty good effects, too. The only really bad part is the Fire Gang scene because the bluescreen lines are really, really obvious.

And David Bowie's wee-wee adores being seen, I'm sure....

His Bowieness.
That reminds me. A friend loaned me Season 2 of The Venture Bros. animated Series, and Bowie shows up as a major character in the last 2 episodes. Also, one of his henchmen is Iggy Pop. Very humorous. There is a disclaimer that the voice work is not the real Bowie, but I wonder.

Re: His Bowieness.
Hehe... that sounds fun. I've been meaning to give that show a try.

Re: His Bowieness.
I. Love. The. Venture. Bros. - you should absolutely, positively, give it a try. It makes me laugh so hard, and has two of my most favorite fictional characters ever. I could be all geeky, and relate scenes and whatnot that I thought were hysterical, but you know ... I'd hate myself later.

The power of Bowie's crotch compels you!

Plus, I love that stupid movie. Right up there with Mystery Men, whatever the hell movie gave us "buddy christ" (the evil angels...M...m something, I think) and 'a year without santa'.

Do it. You'll thank yourself for it PLUS you'll have catchy tunes in your head all weekend!

I've been compelled by worse certainly.

Hi Penny!

I just saw the movie about a month ago for the first time. I thought it was okay, but I had to fast forward through a lot of the songs. Until my boyfriend asked me not to. He liked it a lot. He wanted to watch the musical numbers. And he's always complaining about the "weird" movies I like and make him watch. Go figure.
