      Does The Empire strikes back count as fantasy or it is it too sci-fi? Also no Conan the Barbarian despite being mentioned?

      Hawk the Slayer should also be considered notable for being quoted in "(I Wanna) Give You Devotion" by Nomad feat. MC Mikee Freedom; "Like Hawk the Slayer I came and quartered, Maggie came but now she's slaughtered". Epic!

      saw 'Hawk the Slayer' on the list and immediately thought of Bilbo :D and Krull for that matter "what I should've said was 'alright, dad, but lets give Krull a try'"

      Perhaps the best decision "The Last Unicorn" made was to use great whopping chunks of Peter Beagle's words directly from the book. Beautiful stuff!

      Highlander 2 should be a best just for the Remirez's return with the best line ever "what is a s******d?" Classic

      Woah! Don't normally agree with Winning's comments, but he's got it spot on on this feature! The Harry Potter synopsis especially stands out as one of the most accurate statements about why that film is better than the rest... Also, didn't realise how much of a fantasy film fan I was until I noticed my DVD case shelves a good 80% of the movies described on the best list! Adult or not...it's great to indulge a little kid's fantasy now and then :)
