I just finished watching The Neverending Story for the first time. What does /tv/ think of it?
I was so high when I saw this.
It's a real fucking good movie to watch high.
I'll let you know when I finish it.

now I just suppress my feelings and everything's great!
It was like an acid trip on screen(i dont do drugs tho, just saying). Really enjoyed the direction as weird a thing it is to say, but the handling of elements and themes was great by being straightforward and effective. Hated the shitty framing device even though its kind of the point of the movie. Overall it had a really dark whimsical aesthetic which you don't really see in movies nowadays, I guess people would find the Dali-esque elements too grotesque/weird. But the few bits of violence that serves a purpose in the story gave it a groundedness despite the goofy fantasy elements which was cool to see. Good soundtrack too, using synth for a fantasy setting is a very interesting choice to me.
His monologue at the end was really cool. I like how he was built up throughout the movie too.
like I said, I haven't seen any of them in a while and puppets are most likely merging in my head and turning into one big conjoined Henson film
afraid to admit I only really remeber the song about the babe.
I was expecting some kind of Matrix sci-fi twist because of the music. I saw the dark crystal a while ago and don't remember liking it, t tried too hard to be star wars. wasn't a fan of the ugly puppets either.
I have just the image to back up your claim
made me chuckle before going to sleep
Stop posting and go watch never ending story 3 fucking now.
Has nothing to do with the original message of the first movie. It's basically "hey do you remember x and y and z in the first 2 movies? Now you get to see it in the wacky 90's!"
Also a redesigned luck dragon.
it boggles the mind how they made it look worse, surely that takes more effort?
I think my younger self totally destroyed the VHS tape pausing at the part where the sphinx titties are.
I used to be a jack black fan back when he was just the random extra in every other movie. Just so I could be like
>Oh shit... that's jack black.
>You know, the "Are you ready to ROCK!" guy in Cable guy?
Nigger you're weird
Fucking ironically liking a meme actor before it was cool.
I feel like an asshole.
Sad thing is people really believe 80's puppets look better than modern computer imagery.
People younger than 40 talk like this. Ask an adult who grew up in the 50's or 60's how modern technology looks.

The difference is that it is an actual thing, in frame, that can be reacted to.
It's not a tennis ball on a stick.
I'm gonna force my future kids to watch it, then do look at them at them like this when they enter the swamp
I can appreciate both but yes, cgi is at the point now where we can objectively say it's better than puppets. Anyone who disagrees is basically blinded by nostalgia.
