11Labyrinth - David Bowie

David Bowie in Labyrinth

What better way to remember Ziggy Stardust than to pop in this fantasy adventure and watch the rock idol prance around in spandex and an ever-growing codpiece. After her annoying little brother irritates her to no end one too many times, Sarah wishes that her bratty sibling be taken

by goblins. To her surprise, the wish comes true, and Sarah must journey into a strange world to save her baby bro from certain death. Bowie plays Jareth, the evil Goblin King who pits Sarah against various challenges on her quest for redemption.

This was a role that David Bowie was born to play, and the singer brings a certain sophisticated evil to the plate. He’s obviously having a blast playing this kind of perverted bad guy, and it certainly shows. Famous Muppets creator Jim Henson directed this cult classic from the '80s, creating a dazzling array of practical effects and puppetry. Although the story is questionable at best, and has more plot holes than a slice of Swiss cheese, Labyrinth still has a bunch of heart and more than enough creativity to spare. Any fan of the late, great David Bowie should check out this cult movie that blends comedy, fantasy, and a little crazy.
