It can always heard in movies.

"I'll never ever see you again."

If I want to say that "I will not choose this forever", can I use never ever? For example:

I will never ever choose this.

Is that the right way to say?

    All that you are doing, when you say never ever is to intensify the remark. It means exactly the same as 'I will never go'. Sometimes people say 'I will never never do such and such'. I suppose because never is not gradable it does not take the usual adverbial intensifiers like very, or moderately etc.

Yes, that's completely fine, except some people (like me) would put a comma between 'never' and 'ever'.

You can also say, "I have never, ever [done something]." In fact, there's a drinking game called "Never Have I Ever..." It's a fun way to practice the present perfect tense/aspect. ^_^

    No comma is needed there. It's a matter of style whether to use one.
