"The video arcade is down the street. Here we just sell small rectangular objects. They're called books. They require a little effort on your part, and make no bee-bee-bee-bee-beeps. On your way please." - Mr. Koreander, The NeverEnding Story (1984)

Fact: The movie ends halfway through the book.

Trivia: Steven Spielberg owns the original Auryn and it hangs in his office.

I loved this movie when I was a kid. I still enjoy it every time I see it.
