Having already reviewed The Never Ending Story on VHS, here is a sum up of the effect the dvd had!

If you dwell in the realm of fantasy, or love The Lord of the Rings, then this is the next stop for you! This dvd verson of my childhood favorite is beautiful. When I visited my family the other day, we watched it. My sister said, "Thank's so much for getting The Never Ending Story on dvd, it was like re-living it the first time all over again. It took me back!"

The extra's are next to nothing (no pun intended if you have seen the movie). All you get is some text and the digitally remastered trailer. This was the first American Movie from Wolfgang Peterson (Air Force One, Das Boot). Thank's so much (you know who you are) for letting me and the rest of the world know that the name Bastion screams out the window is "Moonchild!" Life long mystery discussion, set at many of suppers, now laid to rest.

What did you think of this review?

Decent adventure film for family viewing if a bit dated on some visual effects. The book is priceless, the film enjoyable.

However, his knowledge of technical filmmaking and his passion for adventure stories proved to be the perfect combination, as can be seen in this campy classic 1984 film.             The story concerns young Bastian, an imaginative boy who prefers to retreat …

I don't know if I have the words to express the way this movie has inpired my life. When I was young, I watched it several times a day until I knew every line, could sing every note of the opening theme song ~ even still to this day. The Never Ending Story has two heroes and two villains. The first hero and villain are outside the book, high above the fantasy.Bastian is a young kid that is blessed with a great imagination (He gets in trouble for drawing unicorns in his math book.) He lacks courage …
