Not including LotR or the Hobbit cos they are a series of films :)

So it has to be a stand alone film not part of a trilogy etc? :hmm:

That's a tough one, can't think of a fantasy film that I'd rate above one that are part of a series.

Stand-alone, pure sword-and-sorcery fantasy?

Yeah, has to be Willow.

Excluding LotR it's super tough to choose. Live Willow and Neverending Story, but I might lean towards Troy or Dragonslayer.

Certainly fantasy and one of my favorites too.

If we can I'm going to add Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Hear there is a sequel in the works too.

For more pure fantasy it has to be one of the movies I loved as a kid, they stick with you. Probably "The Dark Crystal"; those Skeksis were freaky.

Oh geez, tough one for sure. I mean, of course, there IS the obligatory "precious" films, but not only is that just obvious, but there's also no challenge in naming any of the modern Tolkein films.

So, what does leave us with? There's the Narnia films, but I haven't actually seen those. Nor have I read them, being quite the Lewis fan, go figure.

I'm digging deep here to find one that is certainly out of the ordinary while adhering to the "typical" sense of fantasy (because fantasy is pretty ambiguous and can be classified as darn near anything - even posts apocalyptic in films like Reign of Fire).

I am going to have to go with The Scorpion King, with Conan the Barbarian coming in a close second. Sometimes, you just need yo sit down, grab a brew, and watch what happens when you p*$$ off a 350 lb professional wrestler....

You're not missing much, TBH. They're... okay. The kid actors aren't great, but the visuals are pretty good.

I will say the heavy-handed Christian allegory is easier to see in the movies than the books.
