Weird Movies

I have a taste for weird movies. Perhaps because I'm interested in metaphysics, conscious creation, remote viewing, remote influencing, and a lot of other things.

I like movies that either fit or challenge my way of looking at life and the world we live in. Mind expanding movies that shake things up a bit like a wake-up call to try see things from a different perspective, which can be very liberating. Depending on how you look at things the weird movies featured here range from inspiring to just funny to downright disturbing. Enjoy. :)

The Matrix Trilogy

In case you hadn't noticed the link in the menu on the right, if you like the Matrix movies, I got a treat for you:

The Matrix Truth

Labyrinth (1986)

"Where everything seems possible and nothing is what it seems."
Sarah: Give me the child.
King Jareth and SarahJareth: Sarah, beware. I have been generous, up till now. I can be cruel.
Sarah: Generous? What have you done that is generous?
Jareth: EVERYTHING! Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that child be taken. I took him. You cowered before me and I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down. AND I HAVE DONE IT ALL FOR YOU! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations. Isn't that generous?


Sarah (a teenage Jennifer Connelly) rehearses the role of a fairy-tale queen, performing for her stuffed animals. She is about to discover that the time has come to leave her childhood behind. In real life she has to baby-sit her brother and contend with parents who don't understand her at all. Her petulance leads her to call the goblins to take the baby away, but when they actually do, she realizes her responsibility to rescue him. Sarah negotiates the Labyrinth to reach the City of the Goblins and the castle of their king. The king is the only other human in the film and is played by a glam-rocking David Bowie, who performs five of his songs.

The rest of the cast are puppets, a wonderful array of Jim Henson's imaginative masterpieces. Henson gives credit to children's author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, and the creatures in the movie will remind Sendak fans of his drawings. The castle of the king is a living M.C. Escher set that adults will enjoy. The film combines the highest standards of art, costume, and set decoration. Like executive producer George Lucas's other fantasies, Labyrinth mixes adventure with lessons about growing up.

Labyrinth, the maze

If you like this movie as much as I do, you may want to check out Walter D. Pullen's website: "
Think Labyrinth, The Movie!". Labyrinth scripts and transcripts, credits and soundclips, it's all there. :)

"...but what no one knew, was that the Goblin King had fallen in love with the girl" - Sarah, Labyrinth

How you turned my world, you precious thing
You starve and near exhaust me
Everything I've done, I've done for you
I move the stars for no one

You've run so long
You've run so far

Your eyes can be so cruel
Just as I can be so cruel
Though I do believe in you

Yes I do

Live without the sunlight
Love without your heartbeat
I, I can't live within you
I can't live within you


I, I can't live within you

~The Goblin King - David Bowie~

Jareth the Goblin King of the Labyrinth

"Just fear me, love me,
do as I say,
and I will be your slave."
Jareth, the Goblin King
David Bowie
