THE NEVERENDING STORY (Theatrical Release USA 1984)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The NeverEnding Story has good special effects for 1984 and the writing style will be appreciated by children. Even though there is a 34 year difference between the 2018 A Wrinkle in Time and The NeverEnding Story, the latter movie has more believability and increased watchability by a long shot. 

Storyline

A young boy finds himself absorbed into a story where heroes must go on long journeys outside their known environments and conquer challenges before being able to come home and live in peace.
