    The NeverEnding Story


    It's been years since I've seen The NeverEnding Story, but I absolutely loved this as a kid. Seriously, I wore out a VHS tape. Anyway, as a 30 year old I can officially say that yes, I still cried at Artax's death!

    The cast really makes this movie. Gugu Mbatha-Raw is excellent as always as the title character. I also loved getting to see Matthew Goode, Penelope Wilton (I might have shouted Harriet Jones at my screen), Miranda Richardson, Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), and James Norton (Sidney Chambers)! If you're a fan of Poldark, I have a feeling you'll enjoy this movie.

    The Secret of NIMH


    '80s kids movies didn't mess around, did they? Wow! How is rated G? What really blew my mind about this: Auntie Shrew is voiced by Hermione Baddeley aka Mrs. Cratchit in the 1951 adaptation of A Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim (my favorite one) and that the final sword fight is clearly based on the sword fight from The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938) between Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone.

    I appreciate just how understated this movie is and just how much heart it has. I don't understand how their case isn't more common knowledge than it is today. Finally, Michael Shannon is a real treasure.
