The NeverEnding Story, written by Herman Weigel and Michael Ende and directed by Wolfgang Petersen, first appeared in 1984.I was a kid at that time, who liked sci-fi; yet this was another movie I did not go to see. However, seeing it now as an adult 32 years later, I was I admit a little skeptical about watching this. Would it be lame? Would the story be dumb? Would the special effects hold up and still be impressive in today’s modern cinema?
