The 80s. An era of hair, an era of synth music, and an era of children's movies with puppety creatures. Obviously, combining all three would make for the most amazing cinematic experience imaginable. Right?
Depends on your definition of amazing. Watch an underage (and overacting) Jennifer Connelly run around whining, David Bowie showing off amazing songs and even more amazing hair and codpieces, and creatures born under the unholy marriage of Jim Henson and George Lucas's creativity. All with the added bonus of John Fleury's first ever edition of Riff This!
Please note that this goes with the NTSC version of the movie.
