Bonnie Stinson and Ahna Rose-Dunn Wilder joins Jeremy to watch Labyrinth and mourn the loss of a truly original artist…
This might be our best Blu-Ray review round up yet, including The Muppet Movie, The Sword in the Stone, Wes Craven's Swamp Thing, John Carpenter's The Fog, Mel Brooks' The Producers, and The Kentucky Fried Movie.
This week's archival home entertainment column takes a look at some real heavy hitters with Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train, Wong Kar Wai's In the Mood for Love, Stanley Kubrick's Fear and Desire, the campy Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, and director's cuts of both Frank Oz's Little Shop of Horrors and the Al Pacino ham-fest The Devil's Advocate.
Although Disney seems to have a financial lock on the characters and their escapades, the fact that original muppeteers such as Frank Oz, and Jim Henson's son Brian, are still at the helm means that the new film should be keeping in the original spirit of the brilliant series and early films. The script is written by Jason Segel, a solid actor and singer despite some questionable film choices, and also stars Amy Adams, who I maintain is an amazing talent.
