Movie Reviews

This one really doesn't end!

"I got this movie because I was a big fan of the first two, and I expected this one to be great. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. This movie should never have start production. It is geared too much toward little kids, but I doubt even little kids would be amused by it. The plot has Bastian returning to Fantasia to escape "The Nasties", which is some sort of gang. The Fantasia in this movie is very different from the one in the first two. It looks a lot less inviting, and they really screwed up all the beauty that Fantasia possessed in the first two movies. They turn the Childlike Empress into a joke, who even contemplates using the Auryn to go shopping! Michael Ende would die of shame if he were still alive. They turned his wonderful idea into one big joke. This movie should never have seen the light of day."
It only feels like it never ends.

"The first movie was awesome. The second one was ok. This one is just embarrassing. The only cool things about this movie are that you get to see Jack Black play a school bully, and hear Rock Biter sing "Born to be Wild". Other than that, this is a total waste of time.

Oh, and if they're going to have a different kid play Bastian in every movie, they could at least make some effort to have them look somewhat alike. They all look completely different. He might as well have been black in one of them.

Bad trilogy. Very bad. Just go with the first one, it's the best."
I'd rather vomit and go play in it...

"This movie was so horrible, I was going to sell it in a yard sale. Then I thought... 'that means it will be floating around somewhere else in the world." So I decided to throw it away, then thought 'what if someone goes dumpster-diving, takes it, and watches it?" I couldn't live with that! So, I burned it. Bad for the environment, yet good for the general population. The only thing RIGHT about it was that the Rock Biter had the correct, book-version of the name. STILL, if I wanted Cheese, I would have grabbed a bag of Doritos. Mmm... Doritos. ::Walks away to find the Doritos::"
An insult to NES fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"The first Neverending Story was and is one of my favorite movies ever made, I can't get enough of it. After the second one came out they messed everything up and this third one is a joke, a disgrace and an insult to NES fans everywhere. First of all the book and the auryn look nothing like the original. Atreyu isn't in the film nor is he mentioned. The rock biter has shrunk, there is a stupid talking tree and poor Falkor looks like he's going to die off! I swear I think the people that made this movie didn't even bother to watch the original. The Rock Biter singing "Born To Be Wild?" You've got to be kidding me?! They should never have made any sequels to this movie unless the original actors, writers and directors were in it. They should have just left well enough alone. Like they say "If it aint broke, don't fix it" I wouldn't spend 5 cents on this movie nevermind wasting [$$] on the DVD."
