Favourite Childhood Adventure Classic

One of my favourite childhood classics. Come on, which kid DIDN'T want to be Atreju, travelling across Fantasia, and soaring on Falcor, the Luck Dragon? A near perfect 10/10, but I have to take away one point because the special effects, great in their time, look fairly dated today, and also lose another point because of the two embarrassingly bad sequels that followed, weren't needed, and ultim... read more

A classic

What happened to Wolfgang Petersen? Is he in semi-retirement? His last movie was 'Poseidon', a huge bomb, but since then, he hasn't done much. Anyway, even if you may not like most of his output, you can't argue that Petersen was one of the most successful European directors in Hollywood. Before starting a career in the US, he made two of the most impressive European productions, 'Das Boot' and '... read more

one of the best movies

a movie for kids and adults. no profanity or sex, just a great story. I like the role names of the 2 leading boy actors. and when bastian is flying on the dog head and lifts his hand in greatness that is the best part.

Bastian is a young boy who lives a dreary life being tormented by school bullies. On one such occasion he escapes into a book shop where the old proprietor reveals an ancient story-book to him, which he is warned can be dangerous. Shortly after, he "borrows" the book and begins to read it in the school attic where he is drawn into the mythical land of Fantasia, which desperately needs a hero to save it from destruction.

100 Great 'Fun' 80s Movies (100 movies items)

"Here's an interesting fact to start us off. 'The NeverEnding Story', that popular 80s fantasy film, was directed by Wolfgang Petersen, the same man who only years earlier made claustrophobic submarine epic 'Das Boot'. Now there's a stylistic jump! Based on the novel by Michael Ende (who subsequently disowned the film and tried to have his novel's title taken off it) 'The NeverEnding Story' follows Bastian, a boy who is frequently bullied at school. Hiding from his tormentors in a bookshop, Basti"

Movies inspired by Nietzsche (22 movies items)

"the 'Nothing', from an adult perspective, can be associated with Nietzsche. A nihilist state (which could be equated with 'the nothing') that Nietzsche thought had to be reached and recognised in order to then overcome it and move beyond it. Reject Christian morality, reject conformist value systems, all of which leads to sickness in humankind: 'God is dead' (Nietzsche). And so we then have a state of nihilism. Then, the overman can create a new set of values, 'a revaluation of the previous valu"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2015: September (30 movies items)

"Re-watch - Sept. 6th This was the kiddo's pick for us to watch together on a lazy Sunday afternoon at home. She watched it before with her mom, and early on told me the fate of the horse, Artax. I had to tease her a little that she'd ruined the movie for me (as if I haven't seen this before too), and she argued that it happens near the middle of the film, not at the end. Pretty amusing. Anyway, I still love everything about this film & I'm glad I get to share a love of it with her."

Movies I Watched in School (60 movies items)

"I barely remember this movie; the only time(s?) that I saw it, I was in elementary school. (I believe it was put in to entertain kids at recess time on some rainy day.) One of the few things that I DO remember is that my childhood self (sort of) enjoyed the first part of the movie, but found most of the rest of it rather boring. I'm not sure how I'd feel about it as an adult."
