When I started this blog I was planning to write about books as well as movies & TV shows. I haven’t really done a lot on what I am watching so this feature is here to change it! Every Monday from now on will be all about TV, movies, actors etc.
If anyone likes this feature and wants to join in – you are very welcome! Just leave a link to your blog 🙂
Today I give you my favourite Fantasy movies. This list does not include Comic adaptations, animated movies or Scifi movies. I will have an extra list for those!
Stardust –> I have not read the book but plan to do so at one point. This movie is perfect – it is colourful, magical, romantic without being too cheesy and funny! The characters are great and I thought all of the actors did a great job! Also, it made me cry in the end!
Labyrinth –> If I had to pick a Number 1 – this would be it, without a doubt. This movie was my first ever favourite . David Bowie was my first crush and I don’t know how often I watched it or listened to the soundtrack. I still do today and will probably never stop loving this movie.
Lord of the Rings –> All of them. I thought the books were boring and was surprised that the movies were so awesome, big and epic! If you ask me – they’ve taken everything cool from the books and left the boring stuff. Changed a couple things here and there.. Bam, a masterpiece. I prefer the extended versions, like everyone. This movie turned me into a huge fan of Viggo Mortensen. I watched everything he did since.
The Princess Bride –> ‘My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.’ Anything more to say? Lovely movie – very cheesy and over the top but soo entertaining and heart-warming. And fuck yeah, Andre the Giant!!
The NeverEnding Story –> A childhood favourite. I wanted a Falkor (I still do). The whole story blew my mind when I was little and I still love it! Disappointed by the sequels though. the second was still kinda ok but the third was horrible and I am still trying to forget it.
Willow –> The sad thing is – it’s been so long since I watched it, I only remember bits and pieces. I do remember that I loved it a lot though and was sad when it ended. Time to re-watch!
The Chronicles of Narnia –> I enjoyed watching all of them, the first and third probably more than the second. Very fantastical and magical and I love love Aslan!! I have only read the first book and didn’t like it. I don’t plan to go back to reading the books, but I will watch the adaptations. Cute talking animals always get me!!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them –> The most recent one. Cute animals again haha. I wish the Potter movies would have been as adorable and magical as this one (and had better acting). I didn’t read the book and don’t plan to.
The Wizard of Oz –> The Judy Garland one. ‘There is no place like home!’ I always loved the story and the book and all the songs! This one is a classic I always like watching.
Hook –> Aw, this always makes me emotional. What a great re-telling and adventure! I still always have to watch it when it’s on. And cry^^
So what are your favourite Fantasy movies??
