Amy recently looked into the original response to Jim Henson's The Labyrinth. Siskel and Ebert gave it a pretty scathing review in 1986, reducing it to little more than a bad dream movie. Today, Labyrinth is lauded. It may not be Rocky Horror Picture Show, but its cult following is massive. Whatever the film's faults, the soundtrack is fantastic, Bowie is the perfect diva, Jennifer Connelly is surprisingly good, and Henson's muppets are the pinnacle of puppet work. Labyrinth is close to my heart, and I have a feeling that I'm not the only one who feels like this.
