I liked this movie even though it's tons of corny....it's a kid's movie that's just fun.

We just watched this a couple of weekends ago. The Missus got it from the library.

It freaked the kids out. Mission accomplished.

That was a darn good film even without Fozzie bear in it.

Arkonbey said...

It still holds up very very well.

I think Fozzie was shemping as a Podling.

I love that movie! I saw it in the theater. I hear that Dick Cheney still drinks the soul essence of Gelflings because of this movie.

The Moody Minstrel said...

I never did see that.

You guys, This movie has so much to say if you look beyond the chldren's entertainment aspect. The geflings are the elements of society that control our states, nations, businesses, the world. All is to be under their denomination. The asetics (I don't remember what they are called. It's been twenty-five years since I've seen this movie) are the elements in our society that strive for peace, harmony. The children are us, the everyday person. the child could have abandoned his part in the re-unification and accepted things as they were. he chose not, will we? Once the unification took place, the sum of total result was much greater than the parts. I think that most of us cannot fathom something like that taking place because we are tied in to our drudgery (while waiting for someone or something to come take us away).
