Normal everyday late 80s/early 90s kickassery.
Sometimes I wonder why I hate so much modern fantasy blockbusters. Is it for the excessive CGI, is it for the focus on fire works instead of characters and story or it's just because I'm turning into a bitter old man, like mr Wilson (The old geezer neighboor of Dennis the menace).
Then I watch The NeverEnding Story and I think "Oh yeah, that's why... They don't make this kind of magic anymore".
