I am watching JTV, and the dude from Butterfly Effect has chosen the song from The Neverending Story as his request!! Ive never seen the film clip, which is of course just clips from the movie, with the occasional shot of the dude who sang it… who has really, really bad 80s hair: half blonde (the top half), the other half black; spiked on top… and long at the back. Urgh. It has, however, reminded me of just how much I loved that movie. And, to be honest, still do: I haven’t seen it in years, and I feel the urge to find it. Or to read the book, which was of course much better than the movie; and let’s not even mention the second (although at the time I liked it… only because of Jonothan Brandis…), and the third – which I watched only because of my sister – was enough to make me do something drastic.
The vid clip show Atreyu losing Artax in the Swamp… that was one of the saddest things I had ever seen on film at that point, barring only Watership Down.
