Do you like '80s cult classics Labyrinth and The Neverending Story?
They only got mixed reviews at the time, but that is just because they weren't as critically acclaimed as Hamlet or as commercial as Harry Potter.
I don't really think one is better tha the other, it's like apples and oranges. While Labyrinth is too trippy and humourless, Neverending Story is too serious and foreign. I think both of them are really good though.
I'll always remember Jennifer Connolly as the lead from Labyrinth. I'll always remember The Neverending Story as an amazing, goldlike masterpiece. The sequels I'll pass on, though.

I love Labyrinth, great movie, never been keen on The Never-ending story though but like the song.

Couldn’t get myself into those movies, although I love the song “The Neverending Story” by Limahl.

Never really liked Neverending Story but did like Labyrinth at the time but saw it recently and found it horribly dated and creepy for all the wrong reasons.

I think they were both okay. 'Cult classics'? Are they considered cult classics? The internet seems to agree with you on Labyrinth at least. I think Neverending Story was successful enough that it's hard to call it a cult classic.
I don't think either movie was outstanding though. Labyrinth was a fun little show, and it's actually come up recently for me. My sister oddly asked if I remembered the solution to the two doors, one that lies, one that tells the truth. But honestly, it wasn't great by any stretch.
NS was better, but a lot of that was just better effects and it being more imaginative.

Not now so much . Labryinth came on T.V recently and I was excited but turned out I could not sit through it , same with The Goonies , unwatchable today as far as I am concerned . Shame .

Labyrinth is fantastic I have it on Blu Ray and I’ve watched it multiple times. I still haven’t seen Neverending story but I should, they just made a prequel on Netflix and they’re currently making comics too.
