Watching it now, man I miss these good old movies with their special effects and puppetry. Sure beats the pants off modern cgi pixar crap that is the same exact story over and over.

My favorite movie as a kid and still a go to. I'm always shocked when people tell me they've never seen it.

Movie freaked me out when I saw it as a little kid. Thank you very much for bringing up such a painful memory. Why don't you give me a papercut and poor some nice lemon juice on it? We're closed!

This thread has potential... Watched it on VHS as a kid.

It definitely freaked me out but I still loved it. The girl puppet was hot.

I also had a mad crush on the princess in the neverending story when I was 8.

Studios allowed original ideas then.

Now, everything must be pitched to blank-eyed execs who will not approve anything they don't understand because it hasn't been done before. That is why there are so many remakes.
