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%)

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....

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.
