Personal Thoughts: I LOVE THIS MOVIE. It is one of those movies that I return to time and time again. I love David Bowie as Jareth – the songs in the movie are great too!! Dance magic, dance magic… Jennifer Connelly did an amazing job as a young and lost girl who learns some valuable lessons while dancing with goblins and making new friends.
