Favourite Childhood Movie

I have a few favourites, come to think of it. But this one, I suddenly had the urge to take the DVD and put in the player today after a long long day commuting and class from 9am to 5.30pm. Granted there were breaks in between (thank goodness!) my head was about to slam my table halfway through the day. The best part though, I get to sit at the big table by myself while everybody else have partners. I love my space. LOL!

Ever watched this movie before? No wait, let me rephrase - ever even heard of this movie before? Oh my my.. This was one of my favourite childhood movies, after the movie Nausicaa Of The Valley Of The Wind. So, come watch my favourite part in this movie "LABYRINTH".

I am so IN LOVE with this movie. I used to imagine I was Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) and I will always recite the magic words : 

Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered,
I have fought my way here, to the castle beyond the Goblin City,
My will is as strong as yours and my kingdom is great...
You have no power over me...
Who would've known that back then I thought the gothic-looking-goblin-king David Bowie is just too awesome. Way awesome than the sparkly Edward Cullen. It doesn't help that I see him in his tights throughout the movie at the age of 3. Yes, the movie was out in 1986 and my dad actually bought the VHS tape back then. I was so in love with it I kept playing it over and over again. LOL! I especially love the masquerade ball. There's just something about masquerades that makes me go "Ahhhhhhh..

Isn't he an adorable worm? 

Now seriously, anybody who never watch this movie before, you better go find the DVD. It's classic I tell you! It was directed by Jim Henson and the music are mostly created by David Bowie himself.

Wanna know what's my favourite line from Jareth The Goblin King (David Bowie)? When he says, "I ask for so little. Just let me rule you and you can have everything that you want." Why I like it? Coz he ask the girl to let him rule her. That's like so incredibly sexy. LOL!

So go go! Go to the DVD store and find this movie! I guarantee you won't regret it!

I watch it last time!! Tak ingat bila, masa sekolah rendah kot. That girl is soo pretty. She made a mistake when she ask them to take her baby brother away kan? Ahh,..I never think a baby is annoying how noisy he is..hehe.Owh, except when you are suppose to wake up early in the morning, and your baby is crying hysterically..but well, that is not annoying, only a bit of 'menguji kesabaran' moment.

Love the hair? It's like all over the place! HAHA.. I love the songs.. And oh the ball and the masks and how cute Jennifer Connelly was that time.. She and the thick eyebrows.. I wanted to be her so much back then! HAHA.. Have the king (goblin or not) turn the world upside down for me.. :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

Erkkk.. Love his bulging tights?? My eyes is bulging now... =-O LOL!
I like the costumes and how they portrayed the goblins and those in the labyrinth.. Sometimes old movies are so much nicer coz they don't use CG like the current movies..

Yeah, she was kind of the spoiled princess and hates that her new stepbrother gets all the attention and then she pun have to jaga him so dia suruh the goblin king to take the stepbrother away.. But at least she went all out to look for him.. I can tolerate babies up till a certain extent.. But sometimes young kids whose parents are not very strict, they can be real noisy and annoying.. It frustrates me very much.. Hope when I do have a kid, I'll be getting the obedient one.. :-D :-D :-D

Owh memang klasik cerita ni. Harap2 ada laa remastered DVD version.

Rizal memang teruja lagi2 bawah jim henson puppet creation kan. Teruja masa tuu tengok naik macam binatang kaki yang panjang tu. Hehehe.

Memang kira artistik la sebab zaman dulu mana ada CGi - cgi ni semua.
