Episode 351 - The Dark Crystal *Listener's Choice*

In The Queue - Film Conversations with Andrew and Phil

Release Date: 04/02/2018

Andrew brings his brother Calvin on the show to reminisce about their carefree childhood days watching Jim Henson's THE DARK CRYSTAL.  A consummate fantasy if ever we saw one, it's also damn scary!  But as the three of them agree, kids do like to be scared.  And they can learn lessons about death and loss, and not trusting scary bird-trolls with rotting faces.  Henson considered this film his ultimate achievement, and we are not ones to disagree.  Nostalgia, wonder and awe are all appropriate states of being for this episode.
