A very imaginative tale that’s easy to love.
“Another world. Another time. In the Age of Wonder.” So begins the classic fantasy story that is The Dark Crystal, Henson’s best and, to date, only all-creature film. My father bought this movie for me the day I was born, so I quite literally grew up watching it. It’s a story that never gets old. The characters are unforgettable, with a wonderful musical score that sticks in the head. Jen, the main character, finds that he is ordained to fulfill a prophecy finally revealed to him by his master, the wisest of the Mystics. A single crystal shard was lost long ago, and must be recovered before the three suns align in the sky. But Jen must first find the shard, and then figure out what to do with it once he has it, all the while trying to stay one step ahead of the cruel Skeksis. And time is running out. The thing that I think makes this movie so memorable is the fact that it is so unlike other fantasy films. It exists in a world all its own, with new creatures and characters you don’t find in other films. If looking for a companion to the film, I recommend the book of the same name. It goes into more detail about the world of Thra, and I feel it greatly enhances the immersion into the film. I recommend this film to any fantasy fan who has not seen it, and if you have seen it, I find it worth seeing again.
The Dark Crystal: Tremendous fantasy
So what is this old stuff about? What’s the hype? Jim Henson’s project lasted for years. Together with the help of Frank Oz and Gary Kurtz, this magnificent film was created.
This is one of the very best fantasy films ever.
I cannot think of another film with more interesting effects than this one. This is not just working, it is a pleasure to see it work. You have all this living creatures, that wonderful nature, that realistic but yet fantastic mood.
The writing seem to be minimalistic, and is heavily compensated with all the beautiful elements in the picture. Fantastic landscapes, mystic creatures and a great mix of colors all over the screen, though the film remains minimalistic.
Terry Jones music contributes with a lot of emotions and mood, maybe one of my favorite-soundtracks.
Much more can be said about the film. Most of it should be good things. It is a pity that some seems to unlike with, whatever the reasons are. I highly recommend it for any lover of the cinema.
