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.

"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."

Films I've seen on celluloid in the digital era (96 movies items)

"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"

2019 Diary: January (24 movies items)

" I hadn't seen this since I was a kid because the gigantic wolf scared me so darn much, and I was so sad about the swamp scene, that it just left 8 year old me too raw and emotional to watch over again. Now of course it's a whirlwind, every scene whether funny or sad or scary goes by in the blink of an eye and it doesn't have quite the same emotional impact. I am also not very fond of "chosen one" tropes so that seemed a little trite- but honestly I love the idea of The NeverEnding Story, that "
