I was reading this piece on io9, which lists their top ten words of wisdom from sci-fi/fantasy films. I thought it fitting, as I had just started rereading The NeverEnding Story, which made the list.
“Never give up and good luck will find you.”
Well, we can’t dive down a hole of cynicism all the time — especially when we’ve watched The NeverEnding Story at an early age. When a big hairy dragon says good luck will find you, and then helps a skinny little fantasy-reader-nerd terrify his bullies, and then flies him off to a magical kingdom, sometimes even the stoniest heart has to melt.
More often, catchphrases always stick with me from films, “I’d buy that for a dollar!” and the like, but I enjoyed this list.
Still, they left off a piece from Harry Potter I thought should have made the cut. The scene between Dumbledore and Harry at Kings Cross station.
“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry, “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?” Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
Filmic words of wisdom that would make your list?
