Labyrinth

Labyrinth is about a fifteen-year-old girl, Sarah who is obsessed with fairy tales. The story takes a weird twist however when she accidentally wishes her baby half brother, Toby away to the Goblin King. In order to get her brother back she has to complete his labyrinth in thirteen hours.


In my opinion, this girl is extremely whiny… she whines and complains all through the opening, without much reason. I feel like the first half of the movie is a complete pity party for her. The film involves puppets, and, wait for it, David Bowie. Yes, that’s right, David Bowie, sporting quite a mullet if I do say so myself. So of course there has to be singing.

The film and the characters themselves are..kooky is the best word for it. The plot tries to be menacing, but at it’s heart it is a children’s film, so the music adds a comedic element to the scenes.
