The Dark Crystal is playing all month long on HDNet Movies - kidScene. It is a sci-fi fantasy-adventure that happened thousands of years in the past. It has a cast entirely of puppets, and Jim Henson also voices Jen, a Gelfin. You know Jim Henson as the creator of the Muppets. In this movie he partners again with his creative friend Frank Oz to pull off some really spectacular effects. The Dark Crystal is missing a shard; broken in an ancient battle, and prophecy says that a Gelfin would heal the Crystal. It's an extraordinary adventure with creatures that are out of this world. When light and dark come back together the world is healed. Ages are 8 and up, or anybody who loves puppets. I give it 3 1/2 twinkling stars. Morgan Bertsch, age 7, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
