Another of those 80s films that enjoy a huge cult following which I thought was really rather poor. There are some inventive visuals, but there's little else to commend it. The Dark Crystal was better, but it's a damn sight better than The Never-ending Story.

This is a greatly imaginative fantasy flick, filled with weird characters and a sense of wonder. Though, there isn't much of a story and the songs are forgettable and forced. Still, it's worth the fun moments and imagery.

It doesn't quite have the level of fantasy magic as some of the other Henson era films, but there's a lot of fascinating creature work here and some memorable characters. David Bowie is a standout as the otherworldly goblin prince and the Bowie-esque soundtrack is superb.

A beautifully fanciful tale that is as classic as it is a cult favorite. There is little to dislike about this film, other than David Bowie's lackluster performance, but it is made up for by the fact that it is a fantasy/musical/family film. My favorite portions are complete with the dark air that makes Jim Henson's family films better than all the other creators out there.

A classic fantasy movie that really should be watched by all teenage girls, that is not to say teenage boys wouldn't like it. I still love it even now that I'm out of my teens and though I've seen it a million times. A movie about being careful what you wish for as you just might get it. A fun fantasy movie that has some how stood the test of time even with the new computer animated age of special effects. It may have something to do with Jim Hensen's wonderful muppets.

I finally saw this for the first time. Despite not being fond of Connelly or Bowie it was still entertaining.
