Parachute pants, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Growing Pains, L.A. Gear, Breakfast Club....what do all of these have in common? They all helped define the 80s. Come take a fun "Journey" with me as we revisit the totally radical decade.
I had watched the cartoon version of The Hobbit, and the fun Dungeons & Dragons game introduced me to a world of magic and fantasy. But as a twelve year old, the movie The NeverEnding Story was not only so much fun, but it painted such a vivid world that many kids wished they could visit.
The movie departed from the novel quite a bit, but the fact that the main characters were my age drew me in. I'm not going to bother giving you a synopsis of this awesome movie. If you've never seen it, I pity you! But seriously, go watch it. The NeverEnding Story has everything you can imagine in a child's fantasy world: magic, a warrior hero, a quest, and evil bent on destroying the world.
At the heart of The NeverEnding Story is the message that a child's imagination is something to hold onto. It is powerful, profound, and most of all...inside all of us.
