Both Soulless Minions join in on the 1984 fantasy adventure film The NeverEnding Story.
The movie was adapted by the book of the same name written by Michael Ende and directed by Wolfgang Peterson. Through some research we found that Michael Ende wound up so unsatisfied with the adaptation that he had his name removed from the credits. Surprising but true. Nevertheless, we believe it to be a pretty good adaptation that has held up quite well over the years.
Most of our commentary focuses on story analysis, book to film comparsions, Michael Ende's feelings regarding the film and overall impressions of the fantasy genre.
