Wow, this was one magical adventure. The Neverending story is a 1984 fantasy film directed by Wolfgang Peterson, and was produced at Warner Bros. pictures. The story is about a kid named Bastian who reads a book about Atreyu a young worrier who as been chosen to travel across the land known as fantasia to find a cure for the ill emperoress. Along the way he encounters all sorts of scary tasks and mythical creatures who guide him on his journey. 


I heard about this film because it's been parodied twice in The Amazing World of Gumball with the episodes The Routine and The Boredom. I found it on Netflix and decided it would be worth a watch, and as the movie went on it really grew on me. This is my kind of fantasy I loved the dark themes with fantasia being wiped out by the nothing, Atreyu seeing his journey drawn on the walls of each creature he faced, and with reaching out to Bastian to find out he is the one reading the book. I can definitely see why this movie was so iconic during the 1980s because alot of kids had this on VHS and Laserdisc because this brings out the best in imagination for children. Sure it may be too dark and too scary but that is the joy of it. We all have seen at least one movie that scared the pants off of us when we were young. As a kid I was scared to death from watching the forest scene from Snow White and the 7 dwarfs, I got scared from watching that evil clown firefighter from The Brave little toaster. Pennywise(1990), Jumanji, Judge Doom, Large Marge, Willy Wonka's tunnel, Goosebumps you name it the possibilities are endless. Having been scared of one specific movie scene is what made our childhoods more interesting and just in time for Halloween. The Neverending story is well a neverending story of fantasy, adventure, magic, mystery, curiosity, courage, and imagination that we all can express when it comes to living in our own fantasies.


My 2 favorite parts was Atreyu meeting Falkor the good luck dragon because I loved the special bond he developed with him and I loved how beautiful the night sky was to them I also enjoyed watching him ride on his back. My second favorite part was when Atreyu finds paintings that show everything that happened to him on his journey and then running into Gmork the wolf, but by the time he kills him the nothing continues to destroy the fantasy and brings the apocalypse closer and closer. My only nitpick is with Artax the horse. Artax sinking into the swamp is considered by many to be the saddest animal death in any film. I admit it is sad but Artax was only in the movie for about 5 minutes before immediately vanishing, that was pretty rushed and it didn't have me crying about it, I didn't even get emotional. But I'm sure the rest of you guys did and that is another thing that makes childhood movies more interesting. Seeing a beloved character pass away will have you reaching for the tissues. The movies I got the most emotional watching were Jack frost, Homeward Bound 2, and Have you seen this snail? (Spongebob) Now what made you cry the most? Snow White's funeral, the death of Bambi's mom, The Iron Giant sacrificing himself, LittleFoot's mom dying, Marley being put to sleep, Wall-e losing his memory, or Stoick's death there is nothing that can't hold back the tears from when we were young. So in the end The Neverending story is magical, it has cheap effects, and terrified hundreds of children but who cares? 5 stars.

Anybody want Unikitty and Puppycorn to say/sing more phrases/songs together in unison all by themselves without the involvements of their friends consisting of Dr. Fox, Hawkodile, and Richard for more upcoming episodes of "Unikitty!"?

Dr. Fox is voiced by the current voice of Velma Dinkley from the "Scooby-Doo" franchise, right?
