Retro Dreams-Movies

Being born in 1977 means I spent my childhood in the 80s and my teenage years in the 90s. I have so many memories of things I did, toys I had, TV and films I enjoyed plus music and foods and sweets I liked plus much more.
I thought I’d share some memories on my blog. I’m sure many of you will also share similar memories.

*1 Labyrinth

20130414-160704.jpg. Labyrinth is a 1986 British-American fantasy film directed by Jim Henson, produced by George Lucas and based upon conceptual designs by Brian Froud. The film stars David Bowie as Jareth and Jennifer Connelly as Sarah. The plot revolves around Sarah’s quest to reach the center of an enormous otherworldly maze to rescue her infant brother Toby, who has been kidnapped by Jareth, the Goblin King. With the exception of Bowie and Connelly, most of the significant characters in the film are played by puppets produced by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.
