My early favorite fantasy movies were the Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Legend, and NeverEnding Story. When I feel like watching a fun, lighthearted movie with music, I will watch the Labyrinth again and again. The Labyrinth is still one of my all-time favorites. As I got a little older, I enjoyed Conan the Barbarian, Red Sonja, The Beastmaster, and other similar more adult and more violent-type movies.
When Lord of the Rings came out on the big screen, I was super excited. If I had the money at the time, I would have been one of the people waiting in line at midnight wearing a costume. Lord of the Rings left a lot of the book out, but it still left a lot in. I wasn’t too thrilled about the way they made Gimli a clown, but I loved the dynamics between him and Legolas. I thought the actors who played Gandalf and Aragorn were perfect. The CGI of Gollum and Treebeard were awesome.
Other great fantasy movies which inspired me include Highlander, Willow, The Princess Bride, Kull the Conqueror, Spawn, Final Fantasy, The Chronicles of Narnia, Stardust, Avatar the Last Airbender, and Ella Enchanted.
My all-time favorite science fiction movie is Star Wars. I also liked StarGate, Serenity, Matrix, Star Trek, Avatar, and others.
