I’m lucky to have seen it in the movies. Didn’t want to. Friend BEGGED me because I was 19 and he was 16 and looked like he was 12.
Glad I did. It became one of my favorites.
T2 was amazing. For me, I think Neverending Story holds that spot because the concept was big enough to capture every fictional story I ever read or saw or imagined since then.
Well, the theme of “Protect The Boy! He’s crucial for the future of everything!” is an important theme they had in common that resonated with me.
I don’t remember if it was rated G or PG but Artax’s death was probably one the most traumatic movie deaths I can remember. It only looks like a kids movie on the surface, I agree. I’m certain it’s why I’ve defended people’s rights to their imaginations to this day.
Just saw it – damn… it got me again. This scene alone probably made it PG. Now I have to see what the “kids in mind” / common sense media has to say about it. I KNOW they’ve got to have a few words on this part.
I read somewhere that it’s the best post 2000s Western. I’m not usually much for Westerns but I’ll give it a shot.
Oh I don’t pay for movies outside of whatever we get on TV. It’s probably playing one some channel we have — I just wanted to get a feel for it.
Saw 15 mins so far. I can see already that it’s going to be good and being an action movie, you don’t need words to know what’s happening.
Strong hook in the beginning. Hero / villain setup is clear. Physical special effects are amazing. [looks REALLY expensive]. I felt transported to another place and time. Definitely feels like Mad Max universe. Even the music had that 80s/90s dark future vibe.
It’s on my list of movies to see now. It’s a long list but I’ll definitely watch it.
