Hey you guys…hey have you looked outside today? The suns are almost in conjunction! and you know what that means! It’s time to sing the song of our people! Late 70s and early 80s kids join in..
Conjunction Junction what’s your Function? Hey! I can’t do it this alone ..Alright…Alone then.
Hold up…did anyone happen to catch Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler’s appearance in this week’s film? Yep he played all the Gelfling parts. Jen. that was him. Kira…also him. Whaaat. Boys don’t have wings silly! What are you?!
also, I enjoyed Bob Ross’s head as FizzGig… rolling…rolling…rolling around like a happy little tree ….that wants to bite your ankles.
Well the suns are all lined up. Time for the next intro. Alright, together then.
Directed by Jim Henson, Frank Oz. With Jim Henson, Kathryn Mullen, Frank Oz, Dave Goelz. On another planet in the distant past, a Gelfling embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of a magical crystal, and so restore order to his world.
The three suns begin to align as Jen and Kira reach the Crystal’s chamber, and the Skeksis gather for the ritual that will grant them immortality. Jen leaps onto the Crystal but drops the shard; Kira throws it back to him but is fatally impaled by the Skeksis’ high priest.
The Dark Crystal (1982) – Like a Landstrider’s tongue striking at the lobster back of my childhood memories. Don’t you dare. Don’t you dare. alright, alone then.
This is more Lord of the Rings than Lord of the Rings
That fat Skeksis. Never noticed him before…
1000 years ago.
The Skeksis story
Now the Mystics Story. There are only 10.
3 or 4 arms?
There is a balance in the force.
Gelfling – Jen. The Journey of Jen!
Before the 3 suns merge?
Augra! Give us the shard! Follow the greatest sun.
The Skeksis live on a power sub station
Stop making that mmmm…noise ya freak,,,mmmmm…mmm…Lord Chamberlain. M
Mine!….Mine!!! Emperor no die…..he died.
Mystics just sparkle out. Skeksis decay to dust. Heck…they even send the mystics his shit in the afterlife. The greedy Skeksis gets nothing.
“I can’t do it alone…Alright…Alone then.” – Jen
Trial by stone!!
Well…the general did it….but I got to say…that stone looked it it had already seen some good whacks.
The Crystal Calls. Ahhh…they Skeksis thought they had killed all of the Gelflings. Not so.
Steven Tyler grew up to be a Geflfling.
Augra is missing an eye….Do you suppose she lost it by holding it in her hand to peek around corners?
I want a Fizzgig
Gelflings can share memories with a touch.
In the shapes of kindness.
Sent the crabs…check…send the bats
Oh you hurt your arm…let me rub some moss on it
oh master…nothing is simple anymore.
wait..please make peace
I want a landstrider
“alright, together then.” – Jen
Kira can talk to all the creature of Thra
Come on Podling…look into the great shaft of the castle….feel the power of the dark crystal.
You are very lucky…only the emperor can drink your essence.
They locked Aughra up!
Kira lives with Podlngs.
Those land-striders have some kind of acid tongues.
Wings! I don’t have wings!
yes…this face shaped hole must be an entrance into the castle.
It’s almost time for the Conjunction Function .. Conjunction Function
This castle is built on a lava tube!
So you can look at the crystal….just don’t look up the crystal’s skirt.
Rolling rats…a lot of rolling furries in this movie
Kira didn’t even get to watch the Crystal Show!
Heal the crystal Jen!
cool cool…the podlings got their essence back. Does that mean so does Kira? Cuase she was looking rough.
Got to save the FIzzGig
They turned into the thing.
The Two made one.
We give you the Crystal Of Truth? Make it’s world your light?
You weren’t even of Thra!
Dude…do you even Thra.
I really enjoyed the head of Bob Ross as FizzGig
