God, did this movie need to be made? Could it have been any worse? I watched it on TV a couple of days ago. I heard about how bad it was but I gave it a chance due to the fact that the original is one of my favorite children fantasy movies of all time. I went in with an open mind, hoping to be entertained (at least a little bit). But I never expected this movie to be this BAD! The childlike Empress was one little ugly kid. No comparison to the original cute girl. Atreyu looked like a little drug dealer. No comparison to the little cool kid from the original. The acting is awful! The special effects...wait, what special effects? Make up? Yuck! No comparison to the very cool looking creatures from the first. The only redeming value is Falcor, even though his voice is not the same. Did anyone like this piece of crap? lol.
