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

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

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.

Shortly after, he "borrows" the book and begins to read it in the school attic where he is draw ... (more)

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."

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 'The NeverEnding Story'. 'The NeverEnding Story' is one of those movies that I saw when I was very young and, back then, I thought it was just fascinating, probably the best fantasy story I saw at the time. In my young eyes, it looked great, it was a mesmerizing world, it was a great adventure with also some scary moments and the fact that a young kid like me was reading a book, living this adventu” read more

“The NeverEnding Story is one of my child hood favorites, and even as an adult I still enjoy watching it. The story is about a young boy Bastian who is bullied, and ends up in the school's attic where he finds a book. Once he starts reading it, Bastian is taken away to a fantasy world called Fantasia. The visual's in this movie are great, the special effects great the story very good and the acting good. Yes the story seemed to have never ended because there were two more films after this one, but the first one is always the best one. This is a great movie, and thirty years later I am still watching it. Overall if you like to be taken away somewhere magical, than The NeverEnding Story will do that.” read more

"28.10. Lupaavasti alkava satuelokuva olisi pitänyt selkeästi nähdä noin 15 vuotta sitten, jotta olisin saanut tästä kaiken irti. Fantaasian satumaailma on luotu todella hienosti ja elokuvan erikoistehosteet ja lavastus näyttävät vieläkin komeilta. Harmi vaan, että maagista seikkailua pohjustetaan suurin osa elokuvasta, ja kun itse seikkailuun päästään, on se parin minuutin pikakelaus, jonka ratkaisu ei miellytä. "
