The win appears to have been by a landslide. Other than that, the results don't match my votes even a little ;) I included the other two LotR films on my ballot at .5 positions.

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

E.T. was my #8. A bit too sweet for my taste. And Kiki was my #7. With a better final act, it could have made higher.

Did I already mention I didn't like one of the films with a dragon in the title?

I still think I have OpenOffice installed but I've switched pretty much completely to Google equivalents.

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

I had Beauty at #9. At least it was much better than DragonHeart.

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

I'm a little late (was watching a movie, what else). As usual, my nom finishes last (I'm actually pissed that even the horrible DragonHeart fared better :D ). This far my vote's almost the opposite...

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

I should be here around that time. I'm pretty sure the first Stanley Cup final starts an hour later so if it takes more than an hour I'll be checking the thread on commercial breaks.

Excalibur (1981)

Excalibur is a mythical movie, a pure fantasy that never aims for realism or historical accuracy. Its glossy and hazy visuals make it look like a dream. It's a fairytale for...

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

I finally rewatched Excalibur today. I'll try to have a review (possibly an updated version of my old review) up in a few days. I'll also send in my vote soonish (there are two pairs of films that...

Tideland by Mitch Cullin

I decided to venture from the main quest too, and do some side quests for the loot and glory. I got into my hands an ancient manuscript foretelling...

aka Beauty and the Beast

I'm not very familiar with the original fairytale, but I read its plot description from Wiki. To me, the original story seems better, and the...

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

I also watched La Belle et la BÍte today so I only need to watch Excalibur and then I'm done. I'll probably postpone it a bit and watch a few films for 23rd before finishing this.

P.S. I didn't...

Dragonslayer (1981)

I saw Dragonslayer the first time in my early teens. Like most fantasy films, I loved it back then. Fortunately, it's one of those rare exceptions that have retained its appeal...

I'm sure you understand the difference between a viewer and a director, or influence and interpretation, or even a book and movie.

I wasn't (quite obviously, I think, as I mentioned Alice in my...

I'm not saying that Gilliam didn't mean Tideland to be an interpretation of Alice in Wonderland (I have no idea what his intentions were), but to base such claim on that wiki article requires quite...

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

Seriously, though, I do somewhat agree with Siddon. Maybe he sees too much symbolism in the film, but the sexual awakening of a pubescent girl is definitely there as a theme. I'm just a little...

Does your dissection include a nice amount of shots showing Kiki's panties and Jiji's assumption that Ursula wants Kiki to pose nude :D

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

I just (re)watched Dragonslayer. Definitely the better dragon movie in this HoF. Why? I'll get to that in a few days.

I try to do that too. Not that I have any personal vendettas against other MoFos, but better safe than sorry. E.T. being the only late nomination it was rather hard not to know whose nom it was,...

Re: The Fantasy Hall of Fame

I watched E.T. today. As usual, the review will be on in a few days, but gbgoodies don't need to be afraid as I didn't hate it.

Honestly, I didn't want to spend too much time writing that so it's not as colorful as it could be. Also, the word filter here limits my creativity with negative reviews :D

DragonHeart (1996)

Remember how I said before this HoF that I like fantasy as a genre, but think most of the films are trash? DragonHeart is just the kind of movie that's responsible for that...
