The Dark Crystal (1982)

Universal Pictures
Directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia
(Blu-ray, Sony)

Dark Muppet fantasy set on an alien world ruled by evil crocodiles in robes. A couple of diminutive humanoids are given the task of delivering a shard of crystal to the crocodile's castle, depriving them of their immortality and reuniting them with their better selves. Along the way, they battle large beetle-like creatures and overcome other obstacles. It's sort of like a dark episode of the Muppet Show, only not as funny.
