The Luscious Grassy Place movie
I borrowed a video of ‘Labyrinth’ from a friend a few days back and watched it today. So many memories came rushing back to me while watching it. I – like many people – loved ‘Labyrinth’ when I was little and couldn’t get enough of it. One of the other old movies I liked as a child was ‘The Dark Crystal’, back in its day I thought the FX in the film was amazing. Another movie I really loved is one I can’t really tell you about, because I can’t remember it. I can remember random bits of them film, and I know I loved it, but I can’t remember the name of it or what most of it was about. So maybe you can help me out, below is a list of some of the bits of the movie I remember:
- At the start there is a girl (who’s one of the main characters) that’s in a cage which is drifting slowly down a river. There’s lusciously green grass all around and when the cage finally comes to a stop there’s an apple tree or she finds an apple (not to sure, I just remember a bright red apple).
- She runs into a strange dude on rollerblades (this dude also scared me when I was little) and he takes her to some lady. I think the lady is a queen of the luscious grassy place.
- As far as I can remember the girl is captured by the queen lady and escapes. Upon escaping she goes into a room where the queen has numerous amounts of heads (no for real, she does) and the girl steals some of her perfume and gets away.
This might not sound like such a fantastic movie (except for the numerous heads bit). And since I was so young when I watched it, it probably isn’t, but it has been bugging me for years. If you know what movie I’m talking about please leave a comment. I’ve been thinking about this movie since I was 11 and I can’t remember the name of it. I don’t want to be 50 and then turn on the TV one day and yell “This is it! It’s the luscious grass movie I’ve been searching for all my life.”
