Let's create a list of the Best Fantasy Movies.
Name three films, and explain why you would consider them among the best. I'll begin:
This version of the Arthurian legend has lush photography and an epic Wagnerian score. It really transports you into the world of British mythology, and features a young and very hot Helen Mirren.
Sean Connery is memorable as an immortal warrior training his protege for the final battle. The real star of the film, however, is the Scottish highlands. They are breathtaking. This film also features original songs by Queen, including the classic ballad "Who Wants to Live Forever."
Conan the Barbarian
This movie made Arnold a household name, but it was the villain who really stole the show. James Earl Jones is spellbinding as charismatic cult leader Thulsa Doom, whose quest to solve the Riddle of Steel inadvertently gives rise to his mortal enemy. The original score by Basil Poledouris remains among the best in cinema history.
