10 Reasons the Movie Labyrinth Is Awesome

10. David Bowie's amazing wardrobe. Especially this coat ...
9. And his junk-hugging meggings.
8. You won't be able to stop singing "Dance, Magic Dance"...
7. The "Helping Hands." Talk about a creepfest (this video on the making of this scene, btw, is fascinating).
6. Sir Didymus reminds me of many an English professor, especially those who reallllllly wanted to live when Shakespeare was alive.

5. The Bog of Eternal Stench. Ew. Just ew.
4. Jennifer Connelly's 80s makeup and hair. I bet they used Va-voom.
3. Synthesizers. I mean, who in the hell thought that shit sounded good? Like, played a riff on a synthesizer and said, "That ... gentlemen ... is perfection." Oh, that's right, David Bowie. Since he did all the music. David, David, David. What the hell? 
2. The Escher stairs. Amazing.
1. Every single fairy-tale/children's lit reference in the film. There are a lot. Have fun finding them all!!
You should rent this movie. It's a ton of fun. And your kids will laugh at what you used to find stylish;). A/J
