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

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.

"19.9. 2020 A bullied boy escapes miserable reality to fantasy world with a magical book. "The Neverending Story" feels like a bit too short but humour and charming old fashioned special effects manages to keep the film stable enough. This film could be classified as a statement against cynicism."

You know......for kids! (162 movies items)

"As a kid, when I first saw the film, I had a love hate relationship, with the movie. Why? 1) The scene where Artax drowns in the Swamp of Sadness, and Atreyu is helpless to stop it from happening. 2) The moment where the knight, gets obliterated by lasers, and you see his smoldering corpse. 3) One word. The G'Mork! 4) But the cherry, on the top of the delicious sundae, is the film's bad guy. The Nothing. It's not a great monster, or a radioactive lizard. Ir's living, breathing, ominous, sen"

Anno 2019 | Movies (50 movies items)

"Lame. I watched it because it's a movie I watched a long time ago, when I was still a kid, and I didn't really remember what it was about. It's very boring, maybe because of it's age, but the story in itself is redeemable. It deserve a remake. 31/10/19."

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★½ NOTES: It was flawed from the start, as the film wasn’t placed on the right side up when it started. The moment the projectionist realised this, he stopped it at a mirrored, off-center Warner Bros. logo, and after a minute the opening credits started in the correct position to applause. A very scratchy print with nearly a dozen missing frames missing and severe cuts during changeovers and the beginning of the end credits. Mind you, when Atreyu was caught in"
