This one could´ve been great. This one could be this generation´s "Labyrinth" or "Princess Bride". A smart little movie about two creative kids making up their own fantasy world and completely aware this was a fantasy. This movie was smart, heartful and..smart.
But the, the writers were plagued by the curse: "I don´t know how to end this", and gave it the "Evangelion" (the anime series) treatment: lets just kill off main characters in cruel ways and begone with it...lets ruin a saturday night just "because" and put a unnecessary soar taste into a masterpiece. :O(
That was a really mean and uncalled for wallop.
