Welcome to April and the Blogging A to Z Challenge! Here's a quick refresher of my theme and the "rules" I set for myself.
- Science Fiction and/or Fantasy movies from the 1980's
- A movie I watched when it came out (meaning when I was a kid)
Dark Crystal (1982)
This movie really wraps up my personality. Weird, and very deep at the same time. I don't even know where to start with this one, but Jim Henson and Frank Oz really says it all.
This movie has creepy evil guys, ancient good guys, the last two Gelfling in existence (luckily there's a boy and a girl!), fuzzy muppets to make you smile, life draining machines, prophecies, a deadline looming that will change the world, oh, and the girl has wings much to the surprise of the boy Gelfling. Death and life.
You can re-watch this one on Netflix.
Some quotes to get you started:
"Hold her to you, for she is part of you, as we all are a part of each other."
"End, begin, all the same. Big change. Sometimes good. Sometimes bad."
"When single shines the triple sun; what was sundered and undone; shall be whole, the two made one; by Gelfling hand or else by none."
Sadly, I never read the series, but I did see the movie way back in the day. I remember enjoying it and liked the twist that a man had to become something more like the women in order to save the day. Was it something about being able to control others with his voice? Who can forget his creepy (and totally cool because she scared the pants off me) little sister?
I really want to watch this one again. It's been years and the little clips here and there on youtube only made me want to watch the whole thing. This one is not on Netflix.
The only quote I remembered even before watching the trailer?
"The sleeper must awaken."
