Jim Henson ventures into Tolkien territory in his all-Muppet fantasy feature The Dark Crystal. The titular Crystal maintains equilibrium in a mythical kingdom. When the Crystal is broken, the evil Skeksis take over, killing off the good-guy Gelflings and enslaving everyone else. Two of the Gelflings have survived: Jen was raised by the all-knowing Mystics, while Kira grew up amongst the swamp-dwelling Podlings. Jen and Kira join forces to "heal" the precious Dark Crystal and restore order to their world. Adults may find the whole affair a little precious, while children may be disturbed by the film's mortality rate. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Worth it if you haven't seen it in a while by krisalm March 9, 2006 - 5:42 PM PST
Movies you loved as a child are never as good when you're an adult, but I think this one is still pretty cool. The creatures and characters are very well done and the story is engaging, so it's worth renting if you haven't seen it in a while.
