Worth a Watch

David Bowie, Jennifer Connely, and Muppets- what’s not to love!

Here’s another example of something from my childhood bringing out my creativity, but this one has a little twist. I have always adored this movie, but when I was younger it scared me. I watched it over and over and I always jumped at the right moments, and shivered, and cried, at all the same scenes. This was the first time I really understood that good stories with a positive message could also be a little dark. Not everything has to be sunshine and roses for the good guys and black crows and mud for the bad guys.

The idea of the labyrinth itself is powerfully imaginative. Stories of mazes and labyrinths go back to ancient times, and I’m a believer in looking to the past for inspiration. I’ve only written one short story to date using this staple of myth and fantasy, but it won’t be my last.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. If you like it let me know and share it with others. See you next time, Toi Thomas. #thetoiboxofwords

    1. Possibly. I find that it’s one of those movies people either love or hate. The fact that you liked it is something.
