Luna (lunaraven) | 18 comments As a genre, I feel as though fantasy books suceed where many science fiction books fail whereas as science fiction films suceed where many fantasy films fail. Still, aside from the many really terrible fantasy films there are some great gems, half of which are animated. So what are my fellow fantasy fantatics' favorite films? In no particular order mine are:

-The Wizard of Oz
-The Lord of the Rings trilogy(my favorite of which is probably Fellowship. As a longtime fan of the Hobbit I had always wanted to see both the Shire and Bilbo done properly and Fellowship suceeded on both accounts)
-Labyrinth(David Bowie is the only man who can wear a mullet and look that good)
-Willow
-Neverending Story
-Dragonheart
-Pan's Labyrinth
-The Harry Potter adaptations(my favorite of which is Order of the Phoenix).
-Peter Pan(the live action version with Jason Isaacs)
-Stardust
-The Nightmare Before Christmas
-Bigfish
-The Princess Bride
-The Last Unicorn
-Beauty and the Beast
-The Cat Returns
-Highlander(There can be only one!)

I'm sure there are many i've forgotten--especially animated films.

Have you read the Inkheart books? If not I encourage you to do so. They are far superior to the film which was lacking in many respects.
