In 1984 (that is 30 years ago), This [The Neverending Story/Die Unendliche Geschichte] was the most expensive movie ever made by the people of Germany…

Too bad Michael Ende (the author who wrote the book upon which the movie is based) hates this movie (directed by Wolfgang Peterson, the same guy who will direct 2004’s Troy, which is Hollywood's (and Wolfgang Peterson's) own gods-free version of the Trojan War described in Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey) so much that he got his name removed from the movie’s credits!

One of my all time favorite movies. It made me cry. When a movie that's mostly for children makes an adult cry (in my early 20s right now BTW), it's doing something right.

Saw this back in the day on VHS, was totally obsessed with it. Wish I could skip class and live in fantasy.

mommy must have been a hippy, because the name he gives to the empress was "moonchild"

LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!! =)
waterlily Posted 10 years 2 months ago
Forget you boozwah49! Atreyu looks like a real boy in this movie. Not like a phony, macho, closet homo-like maybe u- who underneath probably wanted to do Atreyu as much as I do!!HAAA
waterlily Posted 10 years 2 months ago
I know!Me too! I love this story! I never get tired of watching and escaping into it! I love Atreyu! I have a liitle girl crush on his sweet ass every time I see him..omg..did i just print thatt..o well..

My5guysgirl Posted 10 years 5 months ago
I have this movie and have LOVED it ever since the first time I rented it at an old store in Crane, Tx called Perry's.
TheWizard Posted 10 years 5 months ago
One of my all time favorite movies EVER!!!. I remember watching this on VHS so many times when i was a kid and i never got bored with it....and i still dont because its a total classic
superhumansamuri Posted 10 years 5 months ago
oh and i also herd that there might even be a remake of the never ending story,yeah like we didnt see that one coming because they have been only remakeing EVERYTHING!! lol
superhumansamuri Posted 10 years 5 months ago
this movie,labyrinth and the dark crystal are some of my favorite movies and its to bad that this one and the second one are the only ones worth watching because the third one sucked. . . .wow thats the same thing with the ninja turtle movies? lol. . . the third movie had jack black in it as one of the bullys funny enough,
Shepard_of_Suburbia Posted 10 years 6 months ago
Every real story is a Neverending Story.

What a great movie! Not as good as the book, but a real treat!

Fantasy is forever awesome!

scooby2 Posted 10 years 8 months ago

Brandon_Keys Posted 10 years 9 months ago
I really love this movie it is really awesome lol WOW how cool it has Barret Oliver in it.
say Posted 10 years 10 months ago
no Atreyu was a boy.......and he grew up to be a really cool boy (like with his own tattooing company) and apparently busted himself up while testing horses (broken collar bone)
I like the first one the best- (number 2)johnathan brandis (???i think???) wasn't my thing, and none of the re-occurring characters looked even remotely like the original players.
monbon Posted 10 years 11 months ago
This movie is good I liked the 2nd one better though.
himynameismikey Posted 10 years 11 months ago
This movie is one movie I'm going to remember till the day I die. Its sooo good.
dakonig7 Posted 11 years 1 month ago
i love this movie, just kool, not to mention something to trip balls on... i dont get high, but jeese it still trips me out. that black wolf was kool too, i was scared of it till i shot my dads ar-15... then i wasnt scared lol
boozwah49 Posted 11 years 1 month ago
This is one of my favorites. I love the black wolf! I was always waitin 4 Atreyu 2 do somethin gay! He looked it! Was it a girl that played his part? I seen he/she has a Facebook! HA! Anyways,run Atreyu, run!
15yrsold Posted 11 years 4 months ago

ayanna81 Posted 11 years 5 months ago

MissHolly Posted 11 years 5 months ago
such an amazing film!
kudos to whoever wrote the script.
and to limahl of course X)
vectray2k07 Posted 11 years 8 months ago
the movie was iconic in the 80's about
a childs imagination by reading the book
of the title movie and it was heartfelt
with laughter of tears and excitement
and an upbeat soundtrack to boot and
it bring out the child in us all by watching
the movie and it will always be in our hearts
for time to come as in life we all have our
own neverending story from beginning to end
from when we live to when we die .

CGxSMASH Posted 11 years 9 months ago
holyyy shit i loved this movie. i used to sit & watch it over and over again when i was 8 or 9 & still do whenever i can catch it now. there will never be another movie like it. I hated the bit when Artex died though- the swamp of sadness really messed with me. oh and doesn't he name her 'moonchild'?
lexhogan Posted 11 years 10 months ago
i remember this when it first came was magic,
best fantasy movie out there 4 my money!
Gino82 Posted 11 years 10 months ago
Yeah bring back memories....
The story should never ends....
Little_cupcake Posted 12 years 15 days ago

TinyNietzchePose Posted 12 years 23 days ago

Baqmeup80s Posted 12 years 28 days ago
I could watch this movie over & over & over again!! It was long but worth every second!
rewf87650 Posted 12 years 2 months ago
good movie
super_mikey83 Posted 12 years 2 months ago
This is probably one of the best ever 1980's movie I ever watched I would'nt forget this movie even if I reached 90 years old.
cindy42981 Posted 12 years 3 months ago
I absolutely loved this movie! My parents must have rented it so many times, until we finally taped it or something. Even though that big white dragon thing scared the hell outta me and was suppose to be a good guy! and yeh those weird statues with lightning and stuff scared me, yet i loved watching it..great movie!

I love this movie... one off the "films you must see" =)
Costanzagirl Posted 12 years 4 months ago
I hated this movie. Wasn't interested in it when I was little. Still am not even though I am 25 now.
NostalgicPathologist Posted 12 years 4 months ago
I what a medallion like Atreu had
littlechimpy Posted 12 years 5 months ago
Man that horse scene made everybody cry. The bit where the knight was trying to cross between the two statues and got zapped by lasers.. gave me nightmares. That was the scariest thing I'd ever seen at the time!
MTLBiceps Posted 12 years 6 months ago
The horse scene was very depressing and I STILL have memories of being scared by that darn wolf!! Who wasnt scared of that thing back in the day?
AlleneKirac Posted 12 years 8 months ago
watch full movies anime tv and cartoons at it is free for you to stream and download......check it out
trollpixie Posted 12 years 9 months ago
Falcore was the best.
starstix Posted 12 years 9 months ago
I Atreu
Sharon7 Posted 12 years 9 months ago
One of my favorites growing up...who didnt want a big white luck dragon? And the horse scene was tragic, I still cry when I watch that movie. The sequel was not even close to being as good as the original.
Lobolover Posted 12 years 9 months ago
a damned clasic,even if its not high tech,its the heart that counts,which is something todays movie makers have totally forgoten.
Maira562 Posted 12 years 10 months ago
This movies is a classic. I loved the movie, and got all emotional when the bad parts came, it was like I was in the movie too. LOL.
definitedefiance Posted 12 years 10 months ago
This was one of my all time favorites and now my 8 year old daughter loves it!
moongirlply Posted 12 years 11 months ago
I remember watching this movie over and over again as a child. Memories.
DoctorDecepticon Posted 12 years 11 months ago
The part where his horse sinks into the swamp still brings a tear to my eye.
bklyn80s Posted 13 years 21 days ago
that was me at school. without the book
Puppyoto Posted 13 years 2 months ago
Makes you wonder if there really is a book like that??? or maybe they're just tryitn to make kids read books!!?? But i have to say this is a really good movie and i could watch it over again and again
AnimatedBritney Posted 13 years 2 months ago
ahh...I remember this one
FOZZIEBEAR Posted 13 years 2 months ago
I have to say... I would not rank this as one of my all time favs. However, this is a movie that any time I see it or think of it...makes me think of being a kid. I remember how I would love to watch this movie, still do. Also, I remember the first time I watched it. It was in a hotel bar or restaurant in JAPAN. Seriously. It was playing on a big screen.
TigerSharkMako Posted 13 years 3 months ago
One of the movies that truly defined a generation, Classic material!
TAM1993 Posted 13 years 4 months ago
I love this movie the only good one from the neverending story trilogy
oldnickfan Posted 13 years 4 months ago
I need to rent this again. Its 1 of my favorites!!
redhead01 Posted 13 years 4 months ago
This movie was so cool! It still is. I think it's the best of the three.
AiCLC Posted 13 years 6 months ago
I LOVE this movie!! Before there was a band called Atreyu, I wanted to name my child that...but the band came before I had any kids heh
tallman722 Posted 13 years 6 months ago
this was a excellent movie in it's time!
Sini Posted 13 years 7 months ago
I love this movie! I remember we even got to watch it in 3rd grade or something like that. It was so cool I wish they still made movies like this...
kyabells Posted 13 years 8 months ago
This is my fave movie EVER I reckon. I still love the bloody thing and watch my DVD often
Shironu_Akaineko Posted 13 years 10 months ago
Falcore is a luck Dragon. I know he looks like a dog, but he's actually a dragon.
Also, the third sequel never existed.
I am in permanent denial of that massacre of a beautiful story.

The Rock eater off of his mountain, lounging around on a rock lazyboy wearing a wifebeater..... augh, IT NEVER HAPPENED, LALALA!
The_Last_Gunslinger Posted 13 years 10 months ago
It's a crying shame they don't make movies like this anymore. The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Legend, Neverending Story. These blow all the junk put out today right out of the water! I am still trying to find this one on DVD, but no luck so far. Oh yeah, the name Bastian gives the Empress at the end of the movie is "Moon Child". Kinda hippy-ish, but it worked.
EarthwormJim_Guhroovy Posted 13 years 10 months ago
I saw this movie for the very first time just a few months ago. I loved it. I wish I could have seen it when I was younger. I have no interest in seeing the sequels though because I heard that they were not that good.
I loved Falkor. I want a luckdragon of my own now.
retrogirl Posted 14 years 2 months ago
OMG! This was my favorite childhood movie! I thought Atreyu was cute too and I was only like 7!! Aww, I'm getting the DVD.
livinitoldschool Posted 14 years 3 months ago
this is my favortie movie, even though it has the sheesy effects, its stil the best movie ever made
shenzie9000 Posted 14 years 4 months ago
i love the neverending story!!!
CHANCE_SUNDANCE Posted 14 years 4 months ago
I loved the movie and the song....
shiroihikari Posted 14 years 4 months ago
I always loved this movie. I had a crush on Atreyu, haha. The effects are somewhat dated now, so today's kids might not like it, but I still get a kick out of it. I'm working on reading the book right now.
TV1985 Posted 14 years 6 months ago
I noticed while watching the trailer of The NeverEnding Story, it starts in the middle of the trailer instead of at the beginning. I hope that whoever posts trailers to the website of RetroJunk, can fix that trailer or re-post it.
art_of_war_101 Posted 14 years 6 months ago
watched this movie even though my father was pissed at us for being awake so late in the evening! Viva la resistance!
vantera Posted 14 years 8 months ago
argosaries u were a dork
argosaries Posted 14 years 8 months ago
Did anyone else ever pretend to be the "empress"? I would pull my hair back really tight, and put a necklace around my forehead...what a dork!
kimsy520 Posted 14 years 9 months ago
one of my 3 faves along w/Stand by Me and A Christmas Story
brown_eyed1 Posted 14 years 10 months ago
I love this movie--I recently bought it on DVD. I have to say, sequels are almost ALWAYS disappointing, and I didn't like the sequels. My favorite character was the Childlike Empress, who wasn't so Childlike in the 3rd one (lol)
Ri-chan_Jedi_Knight Posted 14 years 10 months ago
This movie was a one-of-a-kind, original wrapped in itself! Still among my favorites!
Simpfan83 Posted 14 years 11 months ago
I loved The NeverEnding Story and The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter, but the third just looks stupid!

Oh, and I LOVE the theme song!!!
TV1985 Posted 15 years 1 month ago
The NeverEnding Story is definatly a Warner Bros. family classic. I never saw The NeverEnding Story II: The Next Chapter with Jonnathan Brandis or The NeverEnding Story III: Escape from Fantasia with Jason James Ritcher. And I don't know weather or not I should see the sequils to The NeverEnding Story.

Anyway, I love The NeverEnding Story. I taped it off of HBO and later on I bought it on DVD when I watched it in widescreen for the first time.
Trashley Posted 15 years 1 month ago
I love this movie. The Atreyu in this movie is so much better than the one in The Neverending Story II.

But yeah this is a favorite of mine.
kaleb1979 Posted 15 years 1 month ago
One of the best child fantasy movies. The Nothing was scary and I liked the Rock dude and I think he had a baby rock dude, but it has been years since I seen the movie. I like movies that don't rely a bunch on blue screen and do it with puppets and models. Actors that stare off into space while saying the lines is wierd.
Chupi Posted 15 years 1 month ago
It's based on a book by Michael Ende. I've read the book and it's very good. It has a lot more that the first two movies didn't cover. AND IT IS PRINTED IN PRETTY INK!

This movie was a staple of my childhood. The wolf in league with The Nothing scared me aaaaaaaaaall the way until I was thirteen. I couldn't even LOOK at it until I was older.

Oh man... The nostalgia! =)
Tomi_B Posted 15 years 2 months ago
"Neverending story... la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la la..." nice music. "Atreyu" the Indian & his white horse, "FolkLore" the big flying dog... Rock...Yeah, it seemed t'was a very long movie.
