i bought my nephew the neverending story on DVD for his 10th birthday (which is today). i hope he loves it as much as i did when i was a kid! my brother and i watched it almost all the time after school (i always fast-forwarded the wolf part, if i was on my own). i kind of hated bastian, but loved atreyu. i also really enjoyed falkor and of course always cried when artax died in the swamps of sadness.
