I watched 'The NeverEnding Story' for the first time, and now I want to ride my dog

The Geek Awakens - The NeverEnding Story

This might have ruined my childhood… if I had a childhood.

On this week’s episode of The Geek Awakens, I watched The NeverEnding Story. I’m not sure what I expected when I started this movie, but let me say, it’s a weird one. 

Growing up, I never saw Goonies. While in college, my bestie told me I had to watch it because she loved it. I started to watch it, and by the time I got to the Truffle Shuffle, I was so bored I wanted to turn it off and go listen to some Dashboard Confessional by myself (I was very emo back in the day). I expected The NeverEnding Story to be the same way.

I was so wrong! I am glad I saw this movie as an adult because the story is a little tough to follow at times, and as a kid, I would have been so lost. 

Also, it gets dark at times. Real dark.

In the last episode of TGA, I watched Ghostbusters for the first time, and it was incredible.

I watched 'Ghostbusters' for the first time, and it turns out I am afraid of ghosts
