the book is better
I know this movie is considered to be a childhood classic... but the book is one of my favorites and when I finally saw the movie a few weeks ago I was really disappointed. In itself it's quite decent, but compared to the book it's really lacking....

anything can happen....
An emotional fairytale about a young kid who goes on a heroic mission to save an imaginary kingdom from great danger. I watched it when I was little and enjoyed it. then I watched it several months ago and enjoyed it again. A classic adventure film...
