This month we are stretching our imaginations to the limits as we explore the worlds of fantasy.  The winning film is The NeverEnding Story, nominated by @Spinnaker1981, directed by Wolfgang Peterson (Air Force One, The Perfect Storm) in 1984.

A film about the power of the imagination, the importance of self-indentity and the awesomeness of books, The NeverEnding Story can rightly sit up there with Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal in the pantheon of awesome 80s puppet fantasy movies.


I haven't seen this since I was very young, and I can't remember much about it, but I do remember being traumatised by what happens to Artax the horse, and having the theme song stuck in my head for ages, so I'm looking forward to revisiting this and seeing if it holds up as well as Labyrinth does.

Don't ask me how i managed to miss watching this my entire life. Probably because I was too busy trying to watch the R rated films instead. I look forward to it as it looks trippy. I have a white dog, I wish he could fly me around, we'd be heading to the kitchen right about now.

Just watched it. It was exactly as I remembered it, and nothing as I remembered it at the same time...

Big tits are shown in this movie, so watch out (that I did NOT remember!)
