The NeverEnding Story follows Bastian Bux (Barret Oliver) a sensitive child and avid reader who steals a book of the same name and becomes a part of the story…there’s also a flying dog a creature made of rocks that also eats rocks. Ha! Only in The Neverending Story. (audience goes nuts for my new catch phrase)

You definitely feel a lot of similarities between this movie and Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal. They both feature a world in decline, a boy sent out alone to stop and just really sad animal deaths. I remember absolutely loving this movie when I was a kid and thankfully it still holds up fairly well as a jaded, cynical adult.
