Underrated Fantasy Classics

Michael Kendall "michaelkendall2"
 
Masters of the Universe (Flp) [DVD] [1987] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Masters of the Universe (Flp) [DVD] [1987] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Absolutely cracking 80s fantasy film.  Hugely enjoyable and an impressive directorial debut from Gary Goddard, sadly his only film to date."
The Last Starfighter [Collector's Edition] (REGION 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [1984] [US Import]
The Last Starfighter [Collector's Edition] (REGION 1) (NTSC) [DVD] [1984] [US Import]
"Lovely Sci-fi adventure with a rousing score and great character actors in supporting roles.  Better than Star Wars!  [though not The Empire Strikes Back, you understand]."
Silent Running [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Silent Running [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Superb Sci-fi with a beautiful performance from Bruce Dern."
Spacehunter: Adventures in Forbidden Zone [DVD] [1983] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Spacehunter: Adventures in Forbidden Zone [DVD] [1983] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Spacehunter is a supreme cult film.  Peter Strauss, Ernie Hudson and Molly Ringwald are great, but Michael Ironside steals the show as the superbly villainous Overdog. Great Elmer Berstein score too."
Labyrinth (Collector's Edition) [DVD] [2004]
Labyrinth (Collector's Edition) [DVD] [2004]
"A puzzlingly underrated effort.  Labyrinth is truly worthy of the 'Fantasy' tag.  A transporting piece of cinema."
Dragonslayer [DVD] [1981] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dragonslayer [DVD] [1981] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Superb, full blooded fantasy.  The atmosphere it evokes is palpable; the Dragon is cinema's greatest.."
Willow: Special Edition [DVD] [1988]
Willow: Special Edition [DVD] [1988]
"Entertaining romp which throws in everything but the kitchen sink!  Warrick Davies is excellent as Willow and Val Kilmer is well cast as charming but self-centred egotist Mad Martigan."
Conan Barbarian & Conan Destroyer [DVD] [1984] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Conan Barbarian & Conan Destroyer [DVD] [1984] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"The two Conan films are both underrated in my view.  John Milius's original is a true classic, while Richard Fleischer's sequel is great action-packed fun."
Legend (Ultimate Edition) [DVD] [1986] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Legend (Ultimate Edition) [DVD] [1986] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"A decent fantasy film in it's Director's cut form.  The very best in style over substance!"
Ladyhawke [DVD] [1985]
Ladyhawke [DVD] [1985]
"Stylish film which is controversial due to its quite frankly naff synth soundtrack.  If you can look past the ill-fitting score the film is very good, with the great Rutger Hauer in a rare heroic role"
Flash Gordon (Silver Aniversary Edition)  [1980] [DVD]
Flash Gordon (Silver Aniversary Edition) [1980] [DVD]
"One of the top 3 comic book adaptations and an unparallelled fantasy film."
Return to Oz [DVD] [1985] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Return to Oz [DVD] [1985] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"This sequel was perhaps understandably dismissed upon release due to comparison with Wizard Of Oz. It is a darker film, but it is more faithful to it's origins and more than worthy of your attention."
Flight of the Navigator [DVD] [1986]
Flight of the Navigator [DVD] [1986]
"Enjoyable family film which doesn't outstay it's welcome.  Paul Reubens plays the alien spaceship's voice."
The Sword in the Stone [DVD] [1963]
The Sword in the Stone [DVD] [1963]
"Highly amusing Disney film."
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure [DVD] [1980] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure [DVD] [1980] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Flawless fantasy comedy starring the great Paul Reubens as Pee Wee Herman.  Stellar feature debut fromTim Burton."
The Golden Voyage of Sinbad [DVD] [1974]
The Golden Voyage of Sinbad [DVD] [1974]
"Brilliant Sinbad adventure with some of Ray Harryhausen's greatest stop-motion creatures, including a six armed sword wielding statue that comes to life."
Beastmaster [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Beastmaster [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Fun action fantasy with the underrated Marc Singer [aka; the poor man's Kevin Bacon]."
Explorers [DVD] [1986] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Explorers [DVD] [1986] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Joe Dante's Expolorers is one of the greatest films ever made about childhood.  Mesmerising fantasy cinema."
Innerspace [DVD] [1987]
Innerspace [DVD] [1987]
"Wonderful Sci-fi comedy with great performances from Dennis Quaid, Martin Short and Robert Picardo.  Meg Ryan is quite cute in this too."
House 2 [DVD] [1987] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
House 2 [DVD] [1987] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Excellent Fantasy Comedy follow up to House.  An acquired taste but in mu opinion the best of the series.  It's sheer wacky randomness marks it out as something special."
The Adventures Of Prince Achmed [1926] [DVD]
The Adventures Of Prince Achmed [1926] [DVD]
"Superb Arabian Nights fantasy told entirely in sillouette form.  Deserves to be better known."
Paperhouse [DVD]
Paperhouse [DVD]
"Chilling, highly effective Horror Fantasy.  More frightening than the director's subsequent film, 'Candyman'."
3x3 Eyes Collection [DVD] [1991] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
3x3 Eyes Collection [DVD] [1991] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
"Beautifully told Horror Fantasy.  Anime at its very best."
Excalibur [1981] [DVD]
Excalibur [1981] [DVD]
"Not sure if this is particularly underrated as such; its excellent all the same."
