Fantasy has always been a go to for Hollywood, and with good reason. Creating interesting worlds and fantastical characters has a ton of appeal, thanks in no small part to the heightened level of escapism it provides audiences. With the release this week of Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, we thought we would take a look back at the best fantasy films that cinema has to offer.
To make it onto this list, there has to be some sort of magical element added to the story, or an entirely new world created just for the film. It can’t just be an alternate version of our reality. Think more sword and sorcerer, as opposed to different dimension. If there are trolls, dragons, or nasty witches involved — or even all three — then all the better.
Here is Screen Rant’s take on the Best Fantasy Movies Of All Time:
Inspired by Mochard's invaluable [url="https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/list+of+science+fiction+films/mochard/"]List of Science Fiction Films[/url], this is Wikipedia's chronological list of commercially released fantasy films, from 1899 to the present. "Fantasy films are films with fantastic themes, usually involving magic, supernatural events, incredible creatures, or exotic fantasy worlds. The genre is considered a form of speculative fiction alongside science fiction films and horror films, although the genres do overlap. Fantasy films often have an element of magic, myth, wonder, escapism, and the extraordinary."
The Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF) is an annual genre film festival. Each year, one film is awarded their grand prize; the Golden Raven. The festival is accredited by the FIAPF as a competitive specialised film festival.

I love to obsess over a show's mysteries and the theories sparked by them that elevate the viewing experience. Lost was the show that launched a thousand theories. Though I only really love the first two seasons and parts of the last season, I maintain that at its best, Lost was magical like nothing before or since. And I've never heard anything as moving as Michael Giacchino's deathless score for Lost.
As for why The OA is the best series out there right now, here's a quote from the first episode: "It's about . . . the play, cast of two, setting, classroom, over many dimensions through time. . . . This dimension is crumbling to violence and pettiness and greed." And I'm happy to be able to say that the season 2 finale totally and utterly blew me away. Its twist ending is one of the best I've ever had the joy to see. To me, it's up there with the twist that comes at the very end of Planet of the Apes, Predestination, Interstellar, the second season of Lost and the first season of Westworld. Though stumbling in the last scenes of its acrobatic storytelling, it's one of the most riveting stories of this dimension.
