The Dark Crystal

The Dark Crystal ★★★½

1000th movie! At least on here! I chose to watch this 80’s goldie with Felicia after we saw a couple of episodes together of the 2019 prequel series that sadly never made it into season 2 but is probably one of the best scifi/fantasy stories ever put to screen. This is the movie that started it all with eye dropping practical effects, topping Star Wars in its beautiful weirdness and energy. The story is simple but the characters laid out here make a fun basis for how they get explored in the series. There is also a huge sense of mystery to this world that gets pretty much explained entirely in the series. Go watch it now: The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance! Then go back and watch this one and I promise you’ll have a great time.
