    • Fantasy movies provide us true escape from reality by bringing viewers to faraway lands with magical powers, creatures, and beings.Fantasy movies are excellent source of pure entertainment. The farthest depths of imagination are brought to the surface in the different stories that fall under the category of fantasy. The best fantasy movies ever made are those that often inspire massive franchises, introduce novel aspects to the oversaturated genre, or are impactful and memorable enough to stay with audiences for years. These are also the ideal movies for viewers looking for the must-watch fantasy movie, as they defined and continue to change the enduring genre. Here is my Best 50 Hollywood Fantasy Movies of All Time:-

      Duration: 2h 42m

      The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is one of a best fantasy of all time. I can't recall how many times I have rewatched the movie with other part as well as The Hobbit .

    • An Unexpected Journey

      Release Year:2012
      Duration:2h 49m
      Director:Peter Jackson

      The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a amaz fantasy movie with adventure. I loved the environment that is set in Bilbo´s hobbit hole. I think it accurately depicts the first part of the book, which is super important in my opinion, and even as a stand alone movie it would still be awesome. I like how when Bilbo encountered Gollum, they got in all the riddles that there was in the chapter of the book, Riddles in the dark. Overall great movie if you liked the books, or if you love high fantasy stories.


    • Star Wars

      4. Star Wars

      Release Year:1977
      Duration: 2h 1m
      Director:George Lucas

      Star Wars is a timeless classic fantasy and adventure movie. The story probably needs very little explanation; Luke Skywalker spends his days on a moisture farm on the planet Tatooine with his Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, sick and tired of being a farmhand and hoping for an adventure, when he soon acquires the bickering droids C-3PO and R2D2 who reveal a secret message from the captured Princess Leia being held by the Galactic Empire.

      Release Year:2003
      Duration:3h 21m
      Director: Peter Jackson

      The Return of the King is 3rd part of The Lord of the Rings movie. In the movie,action is extremely thrilling, the script is brilliantly written, the cinematography and directing are ingenious, Ian Mckellens acting is brilliant.


    • OMG

      6. Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

      IMDb Rating: 8.7/10 (over 1.3M votes)
      Release Year:1980
      Duration:2h 4m
      Director:Irvin Kershner

      Empire strikes back is another Star Wars movie with great new characters like yoda lando and boba. My favourite scene in the film is where Yoda uses the force to pick up Luke's ship the music in that scene made me cry no joke. The duel with luke and vader is very intense every hit with the saber you feel it definitely better than the first films duel.


    • Pirates of the Caribbean

      7.Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

      IMDb Rating: 8.1/10 (over 1.1m votes)
      Release Year:2003
      Duration:2h 23m
      Director: Gore Verbinski

      Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl one of a best fantasy movie to watch. Everything about this movie is completely stunning and nothing makes me feel more alive than the locations, the story, the effects and most of all the musical score. This movie has got one of the greatest musical scores that could ever be created for a movie like this one, the adventure, the feeling, the spirit, everything. There is no pirate like the one and only Captain Jack Sparrow.


    • The Two Towery

      8.The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

      IMDb Rating: 8.8/10 (over 1.6M votes)
      Release Year:2002
      Duration:2h 59m
      Director: Peter Jackson

      The Two Towers is 2nd part of The Lord of the Rings. Peter Jackson has done a really great job. The story picks up from the part where Gandalf was attacked, except this time it happens from the other point of view. This not only helps the viewer remember an incident that was important from the previous movie, but also makes it interesting by not showing the exact same shots again. While previously we believed Gandalf to be just a weak old man, over here he turned out to be a strong wizard. This is the reason why it paid off to see him return as Gandalf the White.


    • Star Wars

      9.Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi

      IMDb Rating: 8.3/10 (over 1M votes)
      Release Year:1983
      Duration:2h 12m
      Director:Richard Marquand

      Return of the Jedi is one of favorite Star Wars movie of all time after Revenge of the Sith and The Empire Strikes Back. It's one of the best Star Wars movies ever made like I love Rescue of Han Solo, Death Star 2 is amazing, love seeing my loving heroes of Star Wars, love seeing my favorite Star Wars villain of all time, loving seeing Emperor Palpatine as well, love the final battle of Endor between Rebellion Alliance and Galactic Empire, love final duel between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker being redeem by his son Luke and bringing balance to the force by destroying Emperor Palpatine and the Sith as The Chosen One, Anakin's death and funeral was so emotional and celebration ending was so beautiful and heart touching.


    • Monsters

      10.Monsters, Inc.

      IMDb Rating: 8.1/10 (over 915k votes)
      Release Year:2001
      Duration:1h 32m
      Director:Pete Docter

      Monsters, Inc is one of favorite movies to watch because I was so entranced by all of the colorful monsters in the amazing monster world known as Monstropolis. The characters, the musical score, the song in the end, the story, the feelings, the intensity, the laughs, the truth behind the huge business of the whole city, everything about this film amazing. Mike and Sulley are yet another one of the most incredible and fearless pairs of best friends I've ever seen, sure they may seem a bit hesitant about a few new things they come across but they still march through them because they're best friends


    • Harry Potter

      11.Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

      IMDb Rating: 8.1/10 (over 882k votes)
      Release Year:2011
      Duration: 2h 10m
      Director:David Yates

      Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is one of the best movie in the history of the world. It is really gripping and had me captivated from start to finish. I had read the book first, so I knew the plot, but somehow seeing it on a screen with real people playing the parts made it all the more powerful. I think the fact that a thing so unrealistic could be made so intense is an amazing feat, it sort of makes you forget that this could never happen really as you get lost in this world of magic and terror and all-round amazingness. The actors were perfect for their roles and this, combined with J.K. Rowling's writing and David Yate's directing, made this the ultimate movie


    • Star Wars

      12.Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace

      IMDb Rating: 6.5/10 (over 811k votes)
      Release Year:1999
      Duration:2h 16m
      Director: George Lucas

      We think The Phantom Menace is a great adventure/fantasy movie with a fair amount of action that is nicely spread out from the introductory scene to the escape from Naboo to the pod racing on Tatooine and back to the battle in Naboo. It has good acting from the entire cast with characters that serve their purposes well , even JarJar with the light humor. The introduction of a very striking but mysterious new villian in Darth Maul was well done.


    • Star Wars

      13.Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith

      IMDb Rating: 7.6/10 (over 797k votes)
      Release Year:2005
      Duration:2h 20m
      Director:George Lucas

      There are two things together that can make a movie good emotion and impact and the structure, if you have one or the other only the movie is a mess. A movie that’s well structured with good pacing and narrative beats can’t work without there characters and their actors and the visuals of the movie that sell the emotion and impact. Like you need bones to give structure to a body but you need the body to move the bones. This movie succeeds at having good raw emotion with stellar visuals even it has a very much flawed Skeleton. The characters are great every time I watch this movie I hope things will be different, that anakin follows windu’s orders cause you can see in anakin eyes that he’s still struggling and you can see the good in him.


    •  how to train your Dragon

      Release Year:2010

      Director:Chris Sanders, Dean DeBlois

      How to train your Dragon is one of a best movie to watch. It's such a beautiful, fun, heartwarming to watch .The movie has shown soft heart and the biggest empathy for the Dragon that I just can't help but fall in love with, not just the world they built but also, the connection each character has with each other.


    • Doctor Strange

      15.Doctor Strange

      IMDb Rating: 8.1/10 (over 746k votes)
      Release Year:2010
      Duration: 1h 38m

      Doctor Strange is one of the best superhero films terms of story, character development and special effects.In this movie Dr Strange is suffering from special type of disease that have no cure. So he start searching for cure and finally got his power in Nepal.


    • Ratatouille

      16.Ratatouille (2007)

      Release Year:2016
      Duration:1h 55m
      Director:Scott Derrickson

      Ratatouille has great story of a special rat who love to coock. Ratatouille is simply one of those heartwarming, PG, happy-ending movies that families tend to watch together. You should must watch the movie with special storyline.


    • Thor

      17.Thor: Ragnarok

      IMDb Rating: 7.9/10 (over 759k votes)
      Release Year:2017
      Duration:2h 10m
      Director:Taika Waititi

      Thor: Ragnarok is one of best fantasy/supperhero/comedy movie of all time. Though a really odd choice to make Ragnarok a comedy seeing that it deals with some pretty heavy material – the final destruction of Asgard, Thor’s battle with Hella and the fall of the Valkryies but Taikia’s such a talented director that he makes it all work. I was almost sure that fellow Kiwi Jermaine Clement would make a perfect character in this film but alas. Jeff Goldblum steals the movie completely as the Grand Master and Cate Blanchett is superb as the jilted sister Hella – Mark Ruffalo really gets Hulk to flex some comedy muscles with some great one liners too.


    • Harry Potter

      18. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

      IMDb Rating: 7.6/10 (over 789k votes)
      Release Year:2001
      Duration:2h 32m
      Director:Chris Columbus

      Harry Potter is one of the few franchises that I never gave a chance as a kid. Fantasy just wasn't my interest as a kid. I was more into Science-fiction, Comic book, action/adventure, comedy genres. I just thought fantasy as a bland, and slow genre with cliche characters and creatures. Now, as I got older, the more I got interested in movies, and the more I understood them, the more interested I was into watching/reading Harry Potter. When I finally decided to give it a chance, and look more deep into it. And when I did, I was mind boggled. J.K Rowling put her heart, and soul into the story, and characters.


    • Star Wars

      19.Star Wars: Attack of the Clones

      IMDb Rating: 6.6/10 (over 717k votes)
      Release Year:2002
      Duration:2h 22m
      Director:George Lucas

      Attack of the Clones is 2nd part of star wars series.This movie is very entertaining and a must see for all Star Wars fans. This movie definitely has more romance than any of the other movies of the series. There is also sort of a mystery aspect to it, as Obi-Wan goes on a search to find out who tried to assassinate Padme. A few new planets are introduced, and some revisited. We see Anakin experience his first real touch with the dark side, which is a prelude of what is to come. This is also our first glimpse at Yoda showing us his reputation of a warrior.


    • Spirited Away

      20. Spirited Away

      Director:Hayao Miyazaki

      Spirited Away is a work of magic that you shouldn’t miss the movie to watch. It is an unforgettable, thrilling and enchanting anime movie.This is one of the best movies watch. Studio Ghibli is from Japan, and there are many movies from it like Howl’s Moving Castle, War Of The Fireflies, Whisper Of The Heart, and My Neighbour Totoro. You will definitely love Spirited Away if you are an anime fan. Even if you hate anime, you need to watch this masterpiece.

      Duration:2h 30m
      Director: Gore Verbinski

      Dead Man's Chest is one of a best movie of Pirates of the Caribbean series. The old characters are just as you remember them, The new characters are wonderfully colorful and memorable, and the bad guys are delightfully evil and cunning. I loved the plot and loved the way it played out. Captain Jack Sparrow has one of the best introductions in movie history. The special effects were very good and everything looked realistic.


    • Inside Out

      22.Inside Out

      IMDb Rating: 8.2/10 (over 720k votes)
      Release Year:2015

      Inside Out idea behind the movie is amazing.In the movie has shown emotions of an eleven year-old girl named Riley are brought to life inside her head as they move from Minnesota to San Francisco. The voice casting in this film is amazing with Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Lewis Black, Bill Hader and Mindy Kaling are terrific as Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust respectively.

      Spider-Man: No Way Homeis the movie of spiderman that everyone favorite. The screenplay of this movie is amazing, it really boggles my mind how the writers take such high concept and present it without wasting a single second.


    • Thor

      24.Thor: The Dark World

      IMDb Rating: 6.8/10 (over 688k votes)
      Release Year:2013
      Duration:1h 52m
      Director:Alan Taylor

      Thor: The Dark World is excellent fantasy/supperhero movie. The Dark World offers plenty of action, some really funny moments, great performances, and per MCU custom, sets the stage for more adventures to come. In the years since this movie came out, it's garnered a reputation for being among the weaker entries in the MCU. Personally, I never really got the hate. Probably because I really enjoyed it in theaters, and well, what can I say? I really like the theater experiences.


  • The Hobbit

    25. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

    IMDb Rating: 7.8/10 (over 669k votes)
    Release Year:2013
    Duration: 2h 41m
    Director:Peter Jackson

    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is great fantasy movie. And my only complaint is that pretty much everything is CGI where as Lord of the Rings used a full cast makeup costumes and it made it look real especially the orcs If they do another trilogy in the future please spend more time on making it look real rather than the overuse of CGI I gave it 5 stars because I personally enjoyed the movie including the dragon, the music, the dwarves, the elves definitely get more lore and screen time which was super cool. Legolas is in the movie which is cool to get to see a younger version of him he had some great scenes in this movie that make watching LOTR next even better.
