    Hey folks,

     

    Spotted this Ranking of 80s Fantasy Movies over on the Tor blog and thought that some things were definitely missing…

     

    What would be your top ten 80s fantasy movies?

    Can’t help but notice that the space wizards and space orcs Gamorreans from The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi didn’t make the cut. 😉

    Eh, I don’t really think of animated movies when I think 80’s fantasy so I’d take Black Cauldron and Last Unicorn off the list despite liking the films. I’ll have to take a bit to think on my top ten.

    It is missing some serious “classics”. Watch at your peril. However Deathstalker does present the best Pig Man.

    Hawk the Slayer

    Deathstalker

    Barbarian Queen

    Wizards of the Lost Kingdom

    Gor

    The Sword and the Sorceror

    The Dungeonmaster

    On animated I do tend to count them but I think more of the Bakshi offerings. Wizards and Fire and Ice in particular.

    Agreed. Love Bakshi’s work.
