Thank you for sharing this Sailor. Made me laugh. This is one of my favorite childhood movies! It took me a dozen views to realize the giant dog is actually a DRAGON! (I’m a little slow sometimes.) And the part when Artax dies is so sad, but even then I didn’t cry, even if I wanted to because I was “THE MEAN CHALLENGER!” Actually, I might have cried just a little. I mean Atreyu’s horse dying is just too sad. Any horse dying is just too sad. And is it just me, or is the “NOTHINGNESS” that takes over the land, that Atreyu and Bastian and all the other creatures have to conquer a pretty deep metaphor? I always took it as those feelings of emptiness, inadequacy, lack of compassion, etc. Damn, sorry, overanalyzing; maybe it’s the film student in me. Ugh, I want my own Falkor too!
