"Fear me, love me, do as I say, and I will be your slave" 

Interesting. Sounds like bad wedding vows!

I am so torn!  Jareth as a character is so intriguing to me!  I mean, I love the message, “You have no power over me.”  Young girls need to believe that!  It’s a powerful message for them.  

 

But then why make Jareth so sexy and desirable?!?!?? Hahah.

I suppose it’s the same as Snape.  He’s a terrible character, but Alan Rickman is the love of my life, so my feelings of devotion transfer to the character.

 

Davis Bowie is just cute and popular and charming, so I feel the same about Jareth.

Right! There are a lot of powerful mesages in this movie.

 

Things are not always what they seem.

Give people a chance.

What do you do when things are not fair.

Sometimes all you need to do is ask.

Saying no to desire when its not the right thing can be difficult. I think that is a big part of this movie.

Yes!  

 

Though I’m afraid I got a different message as a child.  I totally gravitated toward a handsome villain willing to give the woman he loves powers.  Not the best mindset growing up.  

 

Kinda damaging for my early relationships.  Lol!  Luckily I grew out of it.

Aww I'd love to do another watch-along where I'm awake and online XD I think I'm going to watch Labyrinth tonight regardless. It's possibly my favourite movie ever. I've been watching it since I was real little. Jareth will forever be the absolute best bad guy.

    • Like to Dislike   Egwene.   She had such promise, I felt that she finally learned some humility with the Aiel. As soon as she got the Amyrlin seat she went back to being arrogant and self conceited.  The final nail in her coffin for me was Nynaeves test for the shawl.  It was clear that the Aes Sedai went overboard with it and yet Egwene (her supposed friend) went with the cruellest blow.  I don't think she understood what it meant to be a 'servant of all', she was instead a slave to her own ego.   She was amazingly well written but I could not stand her.        
    • Just finishing up on my reread of AMOL.   1. Andhrol.  Yes, he and Pevara were lovely together and I enjoyed their dynamic, however, I felt that he took time away from the other characters I had shared 13 books with.   2. Siuan and Moiraine. I wanted a reunion, that was a real sticking point for me.   3. Moghedien. Really did not need to see her dragged off in a collar, I would have preferred to have finished with her skulking about quietly 'somewhere'.  It felt a little bit too much like a clear victory for the Light, I would have liked something to be unresolved.      
    • The dark side won hundreds of years ago, the land unified under one ruler, the Dark One, technology advanced. Forsaken, now free, were flying around in their G6s. #Contrails The laser damage is a bit more confusing, fired from a satellite? They are all east-west... The Seachan returned sooner, lost the war, but they brought an invasive species, the Grolm. The Grolm eventually destroyed all life in Randland, even Trollocs. The surviving Grolm continued to feed on each other. And as to Lanfear, she did not care who Rand was. She wanted to turn Rand to the dark side. She wanted to use his power ability to draw Saidin. She wanted to dominate him to repay “him” for leaving her. She gave up when Rand slept with Avi.
