FILM REVIEW: THE DARK CRYSTAL

thedarkcrystal

I watched The Dark Crystal for the first time since I was a small child. The first time I watched it, I was too young to understand what was going on. However, I have a greater appreciation for this film now that I am older. It is a story of life and death, light and darkness, and the balance between it all. The puppetry was masterfully done and the world building was very imaginative. This Friday, Netflix will be releasing a prequel series to The Dark Crystal called Age of Resistance, which will depict the Skeksis at the zenith of their power and the near extinction of the Gelfling race. I would recommend this film to anyone who is seeking a good fantasy film that does not have a single human character.
