The Neverending Story
was one of my very favorite movies growing up. I practically wore out the VHS and, later, the book. (If you haven't read Michael Ende
's original book, oh my God go now and read the book it is so much better!
) One sunny day in my teens I decided to rewatch the film and was very disillusioned when I saw how poorly it had aged. I dunno, maybe the puberty hormones were messing with me that day. But as good as The Neverending Story
is, some of the effects have not aged particularly well. Which is part of its charm, but I'm not going to say no to these slick character redesigns by Nicolas Francoeur
. The fact that I never say no to anything The Neverending Story
is beside the point.
