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)

“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 '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

That was a close call! (32 movies items)

"The kid who played Atreyu almost drowned in the mud during the filming of the Swamp of Sadness when his foot got stuck in the elevator that was supposed to lower him."

"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. "

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The film itself actually "ends" about halfway through the book. The name of the mystical land in (the English translation of) the original novel was Fantastica, not Fantasia, but the original German name Phantásien translates more accurately into English as Fantasia. During filming in Germany, because it was an unusually hot summer one of the statues of the Ivory Tower actually melted. On other days, the crew were forced to shut down production because the blue backgrounds for the matte wor"

Authors Hate the Movie Versions of Their Book (22 movies items)

"Thank you Jamie Michael Ende was unhappy with the film version of his novel, so he refused that his name be listed at the beginning of the film. There is a small credit to him at the end.He felt that this adaptation's content deviated so far from his book that he requested they either halt production or change the name; when they did neither, he sued them and subsequently lost the case.

"The Childlike Empress This weird bald lady literally just sits in a crystal egg and cries, waiting for some kid from another dimension to save her homeland with the power of his imagination. Worst empress ever! I'm totally voting for the Nothing in Fantasia. I haven't seen this flick in ages - so I can't really say much. Will re-watch and edit this post. "
