Expectations: One of my favorites. I watch it every few years.


Here’s another review that I did for my buddy JP’s blog. I won two DVDs in his Oscar contest with the condition that I would review them for his site. Sounds like a fair trade to me! The first review went up a while ago for Buster Keaton’s The General and you can check that one out through the link a few words back. This week I fulfill my obligation with J.P. and with the review for Jim Henson’s masterful 1982 fantasy classic, The Dark Crystal. Check it out on J.P.’s website by clicking here!

  • oh yeah….love this one. Saw it a few times at the theater back in the day. I’m a little scared because I keep hearing they are working on a sequel. This one is truly best left alone as I don’t think they can recapture that magic without Jim Henson.

  • Ah man, I’m envious you got to see it in a theater! One of these days I hope to catch it in one. Yeah they’ve been talking about that sequel for years. It seems like it’s actually moving forward too, but like you, I don’t think it’ll be worthy of Henson’s legacy.
