The Dark Crystal [microsoft.com]

7.2/10 @ IMDB [imdb.com]

When Jen, a member of the Gelfling tribe, sets out to find the crystal's missing shard, his dangerous journey to restore peace to their planet brings him face to face with monsters at every turn. This masterpiece of animation recounts the timeless tale of good vs. evil and has become a cult favourite of children and grown-ups alike!

So plug your computer into the TV or cast from it. An app would be nice but there are plenty of ways to watch this on your tv.

Great movie. If you haven't seen it, you should. Good for kids too, though might have scary stuff for sensitive kids.

The bad thing is the uncanny valley main character. Dunno why they made his puppet so lame compared to everything else.

Microsoft needs to get with the program and release Roku/Apple TV/Amazon Fire apps.

Approximately 17 people are happy watching movies on a small PC screen with tiny speakers, by themselves sitting at a desk. The rest of us want to watch it on our big TVs with big speakers in our living rooms on comfortable furniture, probably with friends/family.

Or they could maybe release it for viewing on their devices that you buy, ya know, kinda like Roku, Apple, and Amazon did. Maybe they can call it "X" something..........

If I were still a child who played games, maybe, but I'm an adult. I'm not buying a game console to watch movies on a TV.
