I JUST finished up a seven-and-a-half page analysis of Labyrinth as a metaphor for societal standards of women and Sarah's sexuality for my cinema studies class, and I was wondering if anyone would be interested in it? It doesn't cover as much as I wanted it to because I had a page limit, but I wanted to share if anyone wnated to read.
I would love to read that actually. That’s awesome!
For any other Vancouver and area followers of the page who might not know, this is happening this weekend at The Rio! Double Feature, Labyrinth and Neverending Story :)
( FYLabyrinth edit: I wanna go!! :( both movies are amazing. )
Just so you all know we have surpassed 5,500 followers. That’s a big deal.
I think to celebrate I want to have a liveblog labyrinth party in a month or so. If you have the DVD or Netflix (I don’t have Netflix, but I think it’s on there) we can pick a time to start watching and liveblog together! Or get a chat room together. I’m going to abstain from a stream of the movie like we have done in the past, but wouldn’t it be fun?
I have seen the movie literally about 400 times. (Not bragging stating a fact don't hate me! ;A; ) It is definitely "Your mother is a fraggin' aardvark!" :P
We take that stance as well. It’s on the subtitles of the DVD. :)
For the person who was looking for the fic with the Goblin Renactment -- It sounds a bit like the last chapter of Lixxle's "My Fine Feathered Friend." But not exactly. Jareth keeps changing the script, in her version, much to Sarah's indignation.
This might be the fic someone was looking for last week! :) thank you!
Hey loves! Sorry for the delay on message replies and original posts. I only have my phone (my computer crashed a few months ago) and it can be hard to keep up. I’m gonna try to be more involved in a few weeks here when my classes end. Thank you for sticking around through all of our ups and downs. :)
