Maybe it's the escapism, maybe it's growing up reading Tolkien and playing D&D as a kid, but I love a good fantasy flick. Hell, I even love terrible, corny fantasy flicks.
From Conan to Game of thrones, I love all eras of the theme.
Anybody got any faves? I feel like I've basically seen them all and am hoping to find some more obscure ones.
Share snd discuss your faves here, maybe we'll find some new shit. I'll post some of mine shortly to get the ball rolling.
Loved this as a kid... first thing I ever watched w/ Peter MacNicol in it too.

I'm there with you. It's my favorite genre, and I want to absorb as much as possible, but I always end up re-watching/re-reading Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones over and over.
Have you read the Dunk & Egg novellas? It's my favorite story in the Ice & Fire universe. The audio book version is tip top too. Narrated by Harry Lloyd (Viserys)
Also, Berserk is my favorite anime ever. Not the new series, but the OG series, and the movies. Every Dark Souls release I do a Griffith and Guts cosplay. I get pretty fucking nerdy about it.
The Dark Crystal
Not sure if this counts as fantasy but love it anyway:
Watched the first two LOTR films with my 10yo this weekend, the look on his face was priceless. Watching the Return of the King on Friday!
The Neverending Story
