All fans of the labyrinth need this


Should your money be spent on the digital or physical ownership of the labyrinth? We are going to answer this question today and I feel this one is a very easy answer. Again i purchased my copy of this film from Walmart for the low price of $9.99. We will start with a quick blurb about the film and then jump into the ownership breakdown. At the end of this post we will have a digital code for you guys as well.

Journey into the fantastical world of Labyrinth, starring David Bowie and a cast of incredible creatures created by Jim Henson and produced by the Master of Myth George Lucas! Frustrated with baby-sitting on yet another weekend night, Sara - a teenager with an active imagination - summons the Goblins from her favorite book, "Labyrinth," to take her baby step-brother away. When little Toby actually disappears, Sarah must follow him into the world of the fairy tale to rescue him from the wicked Goblin King (Bowie)! Guarding his castle is The Labyrinth itself - a twisted maze of deception, populated with outrageous characters and unknown dangers. To get through it in time to save Toby, Sarah will have to outwit the King by befriending the very Goblins who protect him, in hopes that their loyalty isn't just another illusion in a place where nothing is as easy as it seems!

Labyrinth - 1986  


- CASE QUALITY 
This is my first Digibook case and as nice as it is i'm absolutely terrified for its longevity. It feels wonderful in your hands it looks great on the shelf but i feel the spine won't last. I like the pages included but i won't open the book comfortably enough to enjoy what is written on the pages. With that said the other alternative cases or editions available for this film don't look a half as good as this.


- COVER ARTWORK 

The main cover is amazing with that iconic movie poster and truly sucks you into the time this film was made. The back is covered with memorable characters and wide shots of the labyrinth to let you remember how good this film is. With this being a digibook there isn't an inch of this case that you would want to flip passed without reading or admiring.  Would i have enjoyed a regular case with a booklet included... possibly but i don't know if they could have done the artwork better.

- DISC ARTWORK  
The disc art here doesn't sell it well and almost feels borrowed from an earlier version of the film. It's simple and left me wanting more especially after flipping through 24 pages of art and literature in the digibook. 


- EXTRAS IN THE CASE 

Inside you obviously get the digibook which is more than enough for any fan of this film but, you also receive a "letter" of appreciation from Brain Henson, a digital code, and a advert for the Labyrinth board game.. i did not know that was a thing!


- BANG FOR BUCK 

You get a lot with this film especially in the digibook that any fan of this film would want to read through. The special features are pretty awesome as well including the making-of documentary.. i will never see the goblin king spinning those metallic balls in his hand the same way.



Currently you cannot watch this on any subscription based service but from digital outlets you can rent or own for the same price as the physical media.. I would suggest purchasing a physical copy to avoid the infamous "DUE TO OUR LICENSE AGREEMENT THIS FILM CANNOT BE STREAMED" also for a fan of this film you would never forgive yourself if you didn't buy this version of the film
