The Neverending Story - the 80's at its best

  1. I'm watching The Neverending Story for the first time since it came out. What a trip! It's an awesome movie, really well done. I never knew how many memories I have from a creative writing/ fantasy perspective that came directly from this!

    One of my fav movies. I was living in Augsburg Germany at the time it was made, that is approx. 60 miles from the studios. When I was about 16 , they had these tours that took you through the film studios, kind of like Universal, just a lot smaller. I actually have a picture of myself riding on the dragon Fuchur in front of a huge green screen.

    I absolutely fell in love with that beautiful white dragon...what was his name again? I want to say Monty, but I know that's not right. He had the most amazing big (blue? brown?) eyes.

    Oh! And when the horse sinks in the mud? I'd probably cry today if I saw that scene again...And that's when Atrayu's (sp?) truly all alone!

    My aunt gave me the book to read when I was a little kid...it actually had that oracle thing on it, just the book in the movie! I remember I thought that my copy of the book was magical, too.

    And the Tortoise! "Not...that...it...matters...but..."

    Hey, are there any "before they were stars" in that movie?

    I am sooo envious! I want a picture of me riding the luck dragon!!! When I was a kid, people used to think I looked like Atreyu. I'm not sure that's a good thing since I'm not a boy. :spin:
