Oh, :( . No, she's always looked to me as though she's at the edge of still water and pondering its depths. Rather sweet and thoughtful :) .

Back on topic, ;-) Part of me would like to see Labyrinth redone, but at the same time, I can't imagine anyone else in the human roles

Same here, but what would you like to see done differently?

Probably better quality special effects, especially when it comes to lip syncing the puppet characters (Ludo, Hoggle, Sir Dydimys), and definitely making the goblins more scary and realistic. Let's face it, the battle for Goblin City was down-right snoresville silly.

Don't get me wrong! I love it as is, and I know the special effects were amazing in their day, but I feel like they were trying to walk a tightrope... Dark and scary -- Muppets for grown-ups -- on one side, but not too scary for the kids on the other.
