Top 10 80s Fantasy Films
With Game of Thrones back on the air why not recap best 80s fantasy films. Get pumped for some cheesy sword play, not-so-scary sorcery and Tom Fonns nerdy commentary.
Let’s start with Dragon Slayer; before Ghost Busters 2, Peter MacNicol was practicing magic and slaying dragons. Hard to believe it’s a Walt Disney Movie!
Our #9 pick is Ladyhawke featuring America’s beloved Tom Hanks. And who can resist Michelle Pfeifrer as hawk by day, and of course Matthew Broderick, being well, a wimp.
The NeverEnding story comes in at #8. This German/American children’s tale is jammed packed with magical creatures including the friendly hero Falcore.
#7 features unbelievable (for its time) stop motion animation in Clash of the Titans.
Will we ever be able to shake #6 from out minds? The Labyrinth, between David Bowe’s tight pants, the puppets and overall brilliant musicality certainly must deserve a better spot than 6!
Willow coming in at #5 is one of Ron Howard’s best films, George Lucas created an epic tale of a dwarf’s journey to protect a baby from an evil queen.
Legend at #4 features Tim Curry as a terrifying Lord of Darkness with clown make up and devil horns, could he be any scarier?
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a ruthless warrior in the #3 spot, Conan. And winning the #2 spot, Excalibur, director John Boorman depicts one of history’s most obscure periods of time.
The Princess Bride triumphantly wins the #1 spot with epic sword battles, magical creatures, and of course true love, any other movie in the #1 spot would be INCONCIEVABLE.
