So, hello there! I'm kinda new, well... Really new to this whole blogging thing, but my friend recommended it because I talk so much about movies and shows. I think that's her way of telling me to shut up, but whatever. So The first thing I want to write about on my blog is the one movie I hate most. This is all in my opinion, so please don't get mad if I say something that you don't like.
The Labyrinth was released in 1986 and stars David Bowie as the 'Goblin King' and Jennifer Connelly as Sarah. The movie is about a teen who is left to babysit her baby brother Toby (Toby Froud) while her parents are out. He cries and cries until she finally wishes the goblin king would take him. I don't quite understand why a teenager is wishing a goblin king would take her little brother, but I'll just assume there was something wrong with her... Anyways, Jareth (Goblin King) tells Sarah that she has thirteen hours to complete his Labyrinth or he's keeping her little brother. She eventually gets to the baby and tells Jareth that he has no power over her and then all of a sudden she's back in her room with Toby again. She looks in the mirror and then sees a couple of the monster things and one of them says that if she needs him, just say so. So she said she needs him. And then she turns around and they're all there with party stuff. Turn up time!
So yeah, I seriously don't see the point in this movie. I guess the theme is careful what you wish for, which is a great theme for a movie, but I think that chick was crazy. I mean, what kind of teenager makes a dumb wish like that? Grow up, chica... If she was indeed crazy, then why on Earth would the parents leave a baby home with her to watch over night??
Another thing I hate about this movie is that Bowie seems like a creeper in it...
This scene kinda freaked me out the first time I watched it because this man seems like he's stalking this teenager. That's the way I saw it. He was creepin' around the corners and walking where she couldn't see him, but he could see her.
The lyrics of the song "Within You" just make it worse. "How you turned my world, you precious thing... You starve and near exhaust me... Everything I've done, I've done for you."
Okay, I don't know about you, but this gives me the chills. I mean he hasn't even known her a day and he's already got something. For a teenage girl... Children, this is the kind of man your mothers warned you about.
That's all I gotts to say bout' that!
