    Favorite movie version of the Neverending Story?

    I recently dug up my copy of The Neverending Story (Dutch translation) by Michael Ende. I love it, can't believe that I haven't read it for so long.
    It set me thinking about the movie and television adaptations, none of which, in my opinion, do any justice to the novel. Which led me to post this poll... yes, it may seem to be a bit random, but it just happens to be on my mind.
    Has anyone else here read the book? What are your thoughts on it?

    I'm going for the last option, which should be no surprise.
    This is my signature.
    It is not yours,
    But mine.

    I haven't read the book, and I've never actually sat through an entire movie of The Neverending Story. (Speaking of which, if it never ends, why haven't they made any new movies? It's as stupid a title as "Final" Fantasy.) I'd always flip the channel or go do something else. I only have vague memories from what little I have seen. Something about a kid looking in glass and fighting his reflection, a giant wolf, a boulder man with a wheel instead of feet, and a dragon that looked like a dog...

    I remember watching the first movie when I was..... 8 perhaps. I loved it, and went on to watch the two sequals way later on.

    Now I could care less.

    Yeah - vaguely remember it. I remember the kid's name was Bastian, and the giant flying creature. I also remember some weird darkness/wolf thing that was erasing everything in the world. Then these weird elf-dwarf things, and a princess and a palace, and some guy with a bunch of different faces, and Bastian was forgetting who he was. The part I remember the most is when that knight went through those lion guardian things and got totally fried.
    Sort of reminds me of "Spirited Away" - I might have gotten bits of it mixed up with that...

    If you had read the book, you would know what the title means.

    I could wager a guess, but that's besides the point. I only said that so I could get a jab at Final Fantasy.

    I read the dutch and english version and saw the movie,but it was really old because that big black dog looked just like a puppet to me

    Oh, by the way, I will never forgive the movie makers for what they did to Falkor. He's supposed to be a pearl luckdragon, not some sort of flying dog! Really. I hate it.
