Jim Henson went dark with the splendorous 1982 fantasy The Dark Crystal, which plays like a fever dream Kermit the Frog might have had after reading too much Tolkien. Proudly derivative in terms of plot and characterization, the film is a triumph of production design, with creatures that resemble nothing you've seen before. The all-Muppet cast performs admirably under the direction of Henson and Frank Oz, although you may find yourself rooting for the baddies if only because they look a lot gnarlier. The Egyptian screens this relic in 70mm.
